Dan Victor – PSU-OSU is still a big game – CDT Blue
Blue’s sports columnist reminds lackadaisical fans out there that this is STILL a big game with a lot at stake, especially bragging rights, in our on border showdown in the Big11Ten. I am keeping the faith by making another “mayor’s bet” with the managing editor of one of Gannett’s Ohio newspapers. He gets stickies if we lose, I get an equivalent product if we win.

David Jones – No one’s looking, but new coach could be close by – Patriot-News
After bashing national college football coverage by junior sportswriters from universities even more prestigious than Jones’ alma mater, THE Ohio State University, Jones actually takes a look possible successors to Joe Paterno, including Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz and shoots down those possibilities. He then stumps for defensive coordinator Tom Bradley. Now, Phil Grosz, Blue White Illustrated publisher has publicly said that the next coach will be from outside the program, but then again he has also said that Chad Henne was a lock, we would go 8 – 3 the past two years, and is a huge homer. And just for the whining in the beginning of the article, I have post the succeeding article from Buckeye Buzz, an online only publication that I helped launch for the Newspaper Network of Central Ohio a few years back, because it references an incident between Jones and Paterno in the lead.

This is the manic magic house that Penn built – USA Today
At home with Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller. Somewhere in Pennsyltucky – maybe near Mauch Chunk – there is a little boy who is extremely envious of that house and accompanying rock n’ roll lifestyle. To that little boy, I say that Penn could expletive deleted with YOUR rock n’ roll lifestyle.
