penn state football

  • Question:-How does the Penn state football team travel to away games in other states?
    When the Penn state football team travels to away games how do they get there? Is it by plane or bus?

    Answer:-mostly by airplane
  • Question:-When are tryouts for Penn state football and basketball?
    I am graduating high school in june and in the fall i am going to attend penn state university park. I never played high school football or basketball but im very good in both. I actually am starting to train as of tommorow (working on both skill and physical condition)and will continue on through the summer. I was wondering if penn state holds tryouts for either sport and if they do when are they?

    Answer:-College varsity teams do not have try-outs for their sports, especially those such as Penn State which is a good school in the Big Ten division. The do, however hold walk-ons, which is like a tryout, however most have to be invited to walk-on and "try out" for the team. Because you never played in high school, you're going to have a very difficult time playing on a varsity team, however I've posted a link used for prospective players to put information.

    More likely, you're going to want to look into the club and intramural sports offered at Penn State (both links listed below). These are sports that although aren't varsity, still offer competition, and a high amount of talent (and time). Club teams usually compete with other college teams around the area, whereas intramural sports compete withing teams in the college itself. I'd recommend you look into these.
  • Question:-Is there another techno song besides "Zombie Nation" that is often played at Penn State football games?
    I know that "Zombie Nation" is often played at Beaver Stadium during Penn State football games, but I am wondering if anyone knows the name of the other techno song that they often play after big plays/first downs. Any help would be much appreciated!

  • Question:-So why am I a Penn State Football fan again?
    After watching that pathetic excuse of a game against Michigan, I think I've given up on Penn State football. The coaching staff is absolutely horrible and to be honest I don't think the team could beat Appalachian State.

    If both Appalachian State and Oregon realized the a stretched O was a key to winning against UM, why didn't Joepa use it? Based on the Buffalo and UM games, I suspect our coaches are the problem, but that's another "question."

    So tell me why should I bother to follow Penn State football anymore, besides tradition??!!!! I'm far from a fair weather fan but the last 6+ years have taken their toll.

    I can take the losing seasons, I take the tough losses but enough is enough. I'm afraid I'll just stop watching them and in time won't care about collegiate football anymore.

    So why should I bother watching Penn State anymore?

    Answer:-The 2007 college football season is a third over in most bastions as schools look to wrap up regular-season campaigns by the Thanksgiving holidays if not before.

    Professional Handicappers League member Jimmy Boyd notes certain characteristics have emerged as clubs move toward the defining month of October and bowl talk transforms into more than mere speculation.

    Boyd espouses pretty much of a what-you-see-is-what-youre-going-to-get attitude though others look down the road and anticipate a few surprises especially some involving what currently are perceived as upper-echelon Top 25 squads -- though there doesnt appear to be much room for alterations at the very top.

    USC LSU defending national champion Florida and Oklahoma rule the roost one through four in this weeks USA Today poll although the gambling specific BGS ower Ratings have LSU USC & Oklahoma tied up in the 1 spot with Florida a distant 4th.

    Most college observers believe the top 4 arent likely to change.

    An alaphabet soup BCS Championship isnt etched in stone by any means but it might not be too early for sponsors of the New Orleans national championship game to line up Campbells as a major sponsor in anticipation of a meeting between the Trojans and Tigers.

    Ive said this before and Ill say it again Boyd declared.

    Its a top-heavy year in college football.

    The teams at or near the top will remain there all season with very few others making surprise runs.

    One encounter garnering media attention this weekend is the Friday night Big East affair between No. 5 West Virginia and No. 18 South Florida.

    Canadian PHL member Steve Zukiel regards it as the weeks most appealing matchup.

    Im very interested Zukiel said.


    Boyd offered similar sentiments.

    West Virginia-South Florida is a very big game in the Big East he said.

    The South Florida Bulls won at Auburn to show they could be for real.

    They ARE the sleeper pick in the Big East.

    West Virginia is never quite as good on the road.

    This game either will keep South Floridas hopes of a Big East championship alive or it will keep West Virginias hopes of a national title alive.

    After the BCS title tilt the Rose Bowl traditionally draws the most interest among holiday bowl offerings.

    Observers hardily have maligned the Big Ten largely because of early-season woes in Ann Arbor.

    The current USA Today poll however includes five conference teams among its Top 25: Ohio State Wisconsin Purdue Michigan State and Penn State though Michigan State for example has racked up a 4-0 record against teams such as Notre Dame that pack about as much muscle as Spongebob Squarepants!

    Five time World Champion Handicapper and Professional Handicappers League Commissioner Brian Gabrielle has four Big Ten teams among the leading 25 and drops Penn State all the way down to 41st.

    He has Michigan State 25th and Michigan 52nd in contrast Zukiel still regards UM as a Top 5 team.

    They still can win the Big 10 championship still smell the roses Zukiel said.

    Gabrielle has Ohio State ranked fifth nationally Wisconsin ninth and Purdue 17th.

    This The BGS Power Ratings takes everything into account not just the results of one game i.e. Michigan over Penn St but all games against all opponents Gabrielle said.

    I know Michigan fans are frustrated and looking for something to grab on to but it doesnt help Michigan that Penn State is not a Top 25 team in The BGS Power Ratings so the win really loses luster.

    East Coast PHL handicapper Bill Fishman still gives the Wolverines a shot at a cherished Big Ten championship.

    I feel Michigan is still a very talented team and one that should be reckoned with for the Big Ten title Fishman said.

    Michigan was my top play this week as a dog win over Penn State.

    Im still not a huge fan of the Big Ten but Ohio State is quick and talented on defense.

    Boyd believes uncertainty surrounding the Midwest loop traditionally among the countrys strongest could actually prove to be a boon as each game takes on added significance.

    Theres no doubt the Big Ten is down. he said.

    Michigan did what it needed to do to stay in the hunt by taking care of business at home against the Lions.

    That win gets them believing again without a doubt.

    Wisconsin or Ohio State appears to have the inside track.

    Right now it looks like its going to be a sloppy ride.

    I dont see anyone running the table and home field advantage in big matchups will be crucial.
  • Question:-What has a thinner skin, an onion or Viking, Cowboy and Penn State football fans?
    I got a three way tie between Viking, Cowboy and Penn State football fans, what does your data tell you?

    Answer:-My wife is a PSU alum and a fan and she gets PISSED when I call Joe Pa Grand Pa or when they show him on the sidelines I say "He has no clue where he is". Yeah PSU fans are touchy about that old goat.
  • Question:-Do Penn State football tickets go for sale to public?
    I would like to try and get tickets at face value for next years Penn State vs. Notre Dame football game. Does Penn State sell tickets to the general public, and if so when does that usually happen? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Answer:-If you have a problem getting tickets from TicketMaster or check out some PSU Alumni websites, most of the season tickets sold actually go to the alumni not the students. Many of the individual alumni society chapter websites have a ticket exchange where people list tickets for games they can't attend, these tickets can only be sold at face value. Try googling "PSU alumni ticket exchange" if you aren't sure of any specifc chapter websites.

  • Question:-What stadium songs are played at Penn State football home games? ?
    What stadium songs are played at Penn State football home games. ?

    It's like a 70's or 60's song. It sorta has a disco feel to it. It's not living on a prayer, hey baby or zombie nation. It's played through the sound system.

    Additional Details

    Nope it's not a blue band song or anything like that. It's a really popular 60 or 70 or 80's song, disco like.

  • Question:-How good do you think Penn State football will be next season?
    I was wondering your opinion on how well penn state will do, and how far they would make, and how high would they rank, stuff like that. Also please tell me how big our chances are at getting Terrelle Pryor if you can. Thanks!
    Also maybe how big is the chance we install the spread with Daryl clark and/or Terrelle pryor?

    Answer:-not very good and also not very bad. They need to hire new coach.
  • Question:-Can a guest sit in the student section at Penn State football games?
    My friend wants to come up for the Kent State game on Sept. 18, and I was just wondering if he would be able to sit in the student section with us. I saw a thing on the penn state ticket website about pre-game guest ticket purchasing, but it doesn't say where they would sit. Please let me know. Thanks!

    Answer:-Ok so the way the university wants you to do it is to go to the BJC from Wednesday on between 11 am and 4:30 pm and purchase a "guest ticket." However, they totally rip you off. I'm trying to buy some for the game against Youngstown State. So you go there, wait in line, and then the representative takes all of your information, logs into the student ticket exchange, and they put one on your card. So you pay the fee of the ticket (usually between $40 and $50, plus $1.95, plus 15% processing fee, plus an additional $29 for some other restriction... and you can only buy one ticket. So you're looking at like $80, which is the most absurd thing ever.

    What I'm trying to figure out is, if I already have a ticket, and I log onto the ticket exchange, can I just cheat the system and add an additional ticket to my card? It will save money and the hassle of me physically going to the BJC. I don't know yet but I am definately going to look into it
