Penn State/Akron to be on ESPN2

By mrasor Published: June 14, 2006


For those of you who were on the fence about traveling to Penn State, this news may keep you in Ohio: The Zips/Nittany Lions game will be on ESPN2.

That makes a total of four nationally televised Zips games -- if you count three ESPNU broadcasts (@ Ohio, @ NC State and vs. Buffalo).

This kind of news is how you reel in recruits. I'm sure coach J.D. Brookhart and staff are pleased.


The MAC put out a list of standards by which its schools must abide.

  • Academically centered

  • Inclusive culture

  • Rules compliant

  • Nationally competitive

  • Externally recognizable

  • Financially sound

At the meeting, the MAC honored outgoing Kent State President Carol Cartwright. I'm telling you this to set up a story of mine...

I received a scholarship for journalism a couple months ago. I gave a speech at this luncheon in which I talked a little about how I hate Kent State, and especially its fans.

Soon after my speech, I found out that Cartwright was in attendance during the speech. D'oh!

If you're reading this, Dr. Cartwright, I really meant no offense to you and your wonderful institution. But seriously, I hate a lot of its fans.
