The Detroit Free Press is annoyed that Penn State doesn’t see either THEM or Michigan State as worthy of a WhiteHouse this year.
I’m not sure why the THEM game isn’t a WhiteHouse (granted they are down) but the powers that be must want to keep the event special. Either that or the late dates (Oct 30 and Nov. 27) may be too cold for a successful whiteout. Sorry Sparty. BTW, there was an error printing tickets designating the Temple game as a WhiteHouse. How’s that for a slap in the face?! Wolverines are’t good enough but the Owl’s are!
Penn State has announced a home game with Navy in 2012.
Alabama defensive lineman Marcell Dareus is being investigated for attending a party hosted by an NFL agent. A ruling might affect whether he can play against the Nittany Lions on September 11th. There are two ways to looking at this: 1) Any advantage that gives us a chance to win is great, especially if rules were broken, or 2) if we’re going to beat Alabama, it’s best to beat them at their best so that there are no excuses. Personally, I’d like to win this game and I’m sure Gator fans don’t lose any sleep over their bowl victory when PSU played without Enis and Jurevicius. If he’s suspended, I can live with that.
And that’s the news that’s fit to pawprint.
