CRIPPLED

Yesterday afternoon, as I was preparing for a second update, XP failed (big time) and I have been down ever since, thus no updates on the blog this morning. I am going to try and steal away some time at lunch, but it may have to wait until this evening.

BLOCKBUSTER EDITION

It is a HUGE Monday here at WWN! Stories about two of our favorite things, D.C. baseball and Penn State football, from both today and yesterday are up. My advice — pace yourself, it may take some time. Also, check back this evening, I may have another update because there may be more stories out there.


THE NEXT YURASKO GENERATION

Erica, Christopher, and I were all down in Virginia Beach this weekend to see our cousin Frank (and his wife) Melissa’s son, Frankie, who is barely two weeks old. Check out the gallery and see the first time I have ever held a baby. Our other Yurasko cousins, plus their significant others, were there too, though they did not all make it into the gallery.


WHAT ARE THE EXPOS ACTUALLY LIKE?

With Expos, Little Assembly RequiredThe Post

They are better than their current, 55 – 74 record and Omar Minaya needs to be retained as GM.

Ron CookPitt-Penn State series is bigger than PaternoPost-Gazette

Not surprisingly, Pittsburgh newspaper columnists are blaming Joe Paterno for holding up the Penn State-Pitt series and not Walt Harris. Harris went off on Paterno earlier this summer because it gets the Pittsburgh faithful (all four of them) to overlook what a mediocre coach he has been. It seems to have worked.

Apparently, there were discussions about renewing the Penn State-Pitt series, but Pitt coach Walt Harris ran his mouth and now Paterno is not interested. That is rather funny, since Harris was trying to deflect criticism of his underachieving program by going after Penn State. Thanks Walt, this latest blunder makes you the laughing stock of Pennsylvania football, even though we went 3 – 9. Better win the Big (L)East if you want to keep your job.

SURVEY SAYS…

Fans Back Pitch for Baseball, D.C. SaysThe Post

A survey by the D.C. Sports and Entertainment Commission says that area fans want a ballpark in D.C. as opposed to Loudon County. This of course, contradicts, the Va. stadium authorities survey. I think the D.C. one is more accurate and not just because I want it to be.

More from The Wash. Times: Survey shows support for D.C..


D.C. Official: City Could Block Use of RFKThe Post

As much as I want a D.C. team, Jack Evans and company could take a higher road than to threaten the Va. this way. It is childish and probably does not help the cause.

ONLY ONE WEEK UNTIL KICKOFF

We are so close! The best Saturday’s of the year begin in just seven days. Enjoy your last non-football Saturday for a long time.

There are a so many stories out there today and yesterday featured today. Joe Paterno had his last press conference before the season and had a lot to say. You might want to block off some time to read all of this stuff.


Paterno press conference transcriptPost-Gazette

The first press conference of the year! If you would rather listen to it, the Patriot-News/pennlive.com has it (and other media) here.

Paterno counting on versatile backup Michael RobinsonCDT

The era of the multiback will continue, which is no surprise. Hopefully, it will work this year and not mess up the rhythm of the offense again.

Rush would like to stay anonymousCDT

If I recall correctly, Phil Grosz said that Charles Rush is the one offensive lineman who will probably not get an NFL shot, primarily due to fallen arches.

Rosters needed with this PSU teamCDT

There are lots of people on the roster we do not know yet, which okay considering what the people we did know did last season.

Football Q & A with Chico HarlanPost-Gazette

JoePa offers rare praiseYDR

Paterno thinks Michael Robinson may be the best all around player in college football right now. I disagree, I think he must have been trying to make MRob feel good. However, I would love to take back this statement.

Sam Ross, Jr.Slot man Robinson’s best roleTribune-Review

It has become a cliche; a black quarterback who is an incredible athlete gets moved to WR, but it might make a lot of sense to do this with Mike Robinson. There are of course some downsides:
  1. Will it take away from his development as QB, which is particularly troubling if Mills gets hurt
  2. Takes away from the development of other WRs
  3. Makes him more prone to injury, which could be disastrous

It is a risky proposition to play him there or not at all, which coming off a 3 – 9 season makes me think it is worth it. We will see what JoePa does.


Paterno optimistic about team’s turnaroundTribune-Review

The reporter is not as optimistic as Paterno and predicts 5 – 6 if they lose at Boston College. I think a lot of people are taking that view, though I am not ready too.

Jefferson carries defensive mentalityTribune-Review

Returning FB Paul Jefferson should be a bulldozer this year.

Paterno would like to renew rivalry – if deal is rightTribune-Review

LOUDOUN PLAN DOWNSIZED

Va. Baseball Group Scales Down PlansThe Post

The Loudoun group is now publicly saying they cannot pull off their “town center” concept that would accompany a ballpark. I do not know what this all means in the end, but that was a big selling point for the whole package.

It seems like a good strategy for Portland, but do not be surprised if they get a visit from MLB all of the sudden. This has me a little concerned.

Heather DinichPaterno makes quite a first impressionCDT

Joe Paterno has gotten a lot of bad press for yelling at a bunch of little leaguers from Washington state who showed up at practice. I am not going to condone his behavior, but I will add this: “kids, don’t bug daddy when he is working.”

I do not think consistency was a problem last year, I think competence was the issue. They were consistently awful last season.

Kinlaw, Hunt want to carry the load for Nittany LionsCDT

I caught the first few minutes of the Nittany Lion Hotline radio show last night. It is so close you can almost taste it! You can listen here. I also picked up tickets for the first two games. None other than BOBBIE JO is on the 2nd game’s tix. She will be missed and apparently, not succeeded; at least this season.

Alumni chapter will have a happy hour before the game and a block of tickets for the game. Oh and Jonesy, the “new” MCI Center will have been open about seven years to the day when the Lions play there.

FUNDING TROUBLE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE POTOMAC

Baseball Proposal Losing in D.C. PollThe Post

This could be trouble, big trouble, for D.C.’s bid for the Expos. However, this sort of thing has been overcome before, Pittsburgh comes to mind.


MLB Meets With Virginia OfficialsThe Post

Sounds like MLB’s meeting with Loudoun officials was not even half as long as the meeting with D.C. officials. What does mean? Who knows?

Decision on Expos likely soonThe Wash. Times

Both local ownership groups think that the decision will be made sooner rather than later. Yeah right!

Va. bid takes another strike USA Today

A Stafford County lawmaker does not like the funding mechanism for a Loudoun Stadium. I have a feeling that this is no big deal and that this is just political grandstanding. Hopefully, MLB will disagree and look at this as another reason to put the Expos where they belong, in D.C.

More from The Sun: N. Virginia funding issue re-emerges

BEANO WATCH

With the college football season about to begin, Carroll H. Cook (’54 Pitt) returns weekly chat session on ESPN.com. He had just a few things to say about the alma mater:

Tim (State College, PA): Staying on the topic of the Big Ten, do you see Penn State returning to a bowl game? I predict a 7-4 finish. I am crossing my fingers that this season will be a springboard for a Big Ten title run in ’05.

Beano Cook: Tim, I expect Penn State to win at least 7 games. As usual, the non-conf sched isn’t that tough, although B.C. will not be easy on the road. You are lucky Penn STate doesn’t have to play Michigan, but they must go to Wisconsin and Ohio State. Does anybody have any tickets for the Iowa-Penn State game?? Let me know!!

Ouch, Beano says seven wins, so that probably means seven loses. D’oh! He also had this to say in response to a question about Iowa:

Beano Cook: Hey, if Iowa goes to Michigan and wins, VERY good chance. Please don’t laugh, but Penn State won’t be easy at Penn State … and of course, there’s Ohio State. But that game is in Iowa City. I also understand that for the Ohio State game, there will 76 trombones in the stand … however I don’t know if Mr. Hill will be there …


MORE THAN YESTERDAY

Yesterday, driving home I caught one of my favorite oldies on the radio, “I Love You More Today Than Yesterday” by The Spiral Starecase. I think it came out in the early seventies. Just for fun, I searched the band and on the second site I visited, they had an embedded version of the song. It always picks me up. Go there and see if it works for you too.


QUOTE OF THE DAY

Ron Powlus will win two Heisman trophies.

LOUDOUN IN THE LEAD? PHIL GROSZ ON 2004 NITTANY LIONS

MLB Talks to Officials In D.C.The Post

Officials were in town yesterday and Mayor Tony Williams had this to say: “What you’ve heard around is there’s a lot of support there [for D.C.]. But at the highest levels, there’s still resistance to coming here. They’re still looking for a way not to be here, because of the obvious reasons.” What a discouraging quote.

More from The Wash. Times: MLB grills District on stadium plans


ONLY 10 DAYS UNTIL KICKOFF

Last night guest editor Fritz Hamme and I went to the Phil Grosz event at Crystal City Sports Pub. We left feeling hopeful. Phil spoke for over and hour and here are some of the highlights:

  • The program revamps to a corporate structure so that it will be ready to have a new coach, from outside the system, when Joe Paterno steps down. After ’99 JoePa had consolidated power and run the program as a “sole-proprietorship” which no longer works in college football.
  • Galen Hall will have more control over the offense than Fran Ganter did and Jay Paterno will have less. Hall is signed for 3 years and was the “best available” given the program’s situation. Phil was very high on Galen.
  • The assistants are “playing for their jobs” the next few years and had not been getting along well last year.
  • There are four NFL prospects on the o-line.
  • Austin Scott is an important part of the equation, but not the whole equation.
  • Rodney Kinlaw has recovered from his injury and could be a huge threat.
  • Zack Mills is the starter at QB, period.
  • Wideouts are still a huge question mark.
  • Lots of one back sets.
  • Defensive line should be greatly improved.
  • Linebackers may be a little green, but should become very good.

    Phil’s prediction appears as quote of the day.

    It is really less than eleven days by the time this was updated (once again, Comcast sucks), but that is okay. Tonight, I am scheduled to see Blue White Illustrated publisher, Phil Grosz at Crystal City Sports Pub. I went to the one two years ago and had a great time; it is sponsored by the Metro Washington Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association. Tickets are available at the door.


    Posluszny wants to add to traditionPublic Opinion, Chambersburg, Penna.

    One nice thing about the problems this morning is I get to add this story. It is from one of the Gannett papers I update daily and in fact, I personally put it online. I actually had to check with the copy desk to see if it was okay, because they forgot to budget it. Thankfully, they were grateful I got it up there and noticed the oversight. Anyhow, the article is about Paul Posluszny who appears to be the next great PSU LB.

    Bronson hopes to be answer at tight endCDT

    The tradition of having a fifth year senior starting at TE for only that season continues without any signs of slowing down.

    Road projects to slow Penn State football trafficCDT

    Traffic looks to be worst than normal this year, which figures since I am not staying within 30 miles of State College for almost every game for the first time ever. Oh well, leave early and stay late I suppose, which is a good idea anyhow. While it means getting up earlier, it also means more tailgating and what is better than that?

    The Patriot-News has a multi-day series on alcohol abuse on college campuses. This article details some losers at the alma mater and their drinking habits. For as great as Penn State is, people (of whom there are many) like the ones depicted here make me glad I graduated. The infest the campus like a virulent fungus and dumb down the whole experience for everyone. I am not saying that occasionally getting a little loaded when having a good time with your friends is a horrible thing. What these people do is far from that — getting drunk for the sake of it all week long. It is so sad.

    TALKING (D.C.) BASEBALL

    Mark Gauvreau JudgeWashington Baseball Is Not for the BirdsThe Times

    The grandson of Senators great, Joe Judge makes the case for D.C. baseball in the Sunday Times. More good press for our cause.


    Jack EvansEvans: Take N. Va. out of the ballgameWashington Business Journal

    The D.C. Council point-man makes the case for D.C. over Northern Virginia and explains how he will push the stadium plan through. Go get ‘em Jack! Thanks go to Ryan Moore sending this along to me.

    So, I go away and nothing has really changed on the Expos front, other than some media reports of D.C. being the favorite now. I really hope it is becoming obvious to Bud Selig that it just makes so much sense for the Expos to make D.C. home. Also, if last week’s Orioles D.C. fanfest should comfort Peter Angelo$; if as many people as he claimed showed up, well, that goes to show that the O’s will not be abandoned should D.C. get the Expos. Both cities are worthy of MLB teams and can both prosper.

    ONLY 12 DAYS UNTIL KICKOFF

    Actually is technically less than 12 days, something like 11 days, 22 hours, etc. Once vacation is over, the fever really kicks in, we are almost ready! Time to wash all the jerseys and read up on the season in Town & Gown’s Football Annual. A belated thanks to Maryland Bureau Chief, Sam Basile for scoring me this year’s edition. Anyhow, here are some recent articles:


    PSU LB Snow breaks right foot in practiceCDT

    This is a shame, the LBs, though young, look like they could become really good. While he probably would not be starting, it appeared he was due for some playing time. Hopefully, he can use his recovery to get all the schemes up in his head.

    Ron BrackenFor Phillips, the writing’s on his armCDT

    Bracken takes a look at Anwar Phillips, who will be playing CB this season. He has a questionable past and probably ought to keep his nose really clean and play great football to overcome it in the public eye.

    Back for moreCDT

    Austin Scott back to battle for starting tailback position

    True sophomore Austin Scott is profiled. He should be a beast and barring injury, I would expect 1,000 yards out of him this fall. Look for lots of #33 jerseys being sold by the end of the season, if not sooner.

    Mills, Robinson search for consistent help on offenseCDT

    I think, if only be the theory that it could not be as bad as last season, that Zack and MRob will get some help. If Mills is healthy, he should resemble the player he was in the early 2002 season.
