He's actually playing brickbreaker.



So, Pfan. I am here watching Penn State in the NIT semi, and I am wondering why they do not have more basketball success up in Happy Valley, especially considering how HUGE of a basketball city Philly is? You think they could do a better job recruiting in Philly.

Basketball players that come out of Philly (and there are a lot) are not interested in going to Penn State when there are other options with bigger programs. Until Penn State has consistent success, they'll continue to do this. Between that and the fact that Penn State focuses most of their scholarship action elsewhere, it's never really taken off. I mean, the best players to come out of Philly recently were '07 Episcopal grads (who I saw play multiple times) Gerald Henderson and Wayne Ellington, who went to Duke and UNC, and '08 American Christian grad Tyreke Evans, who went to Memphis. Philly is a heavily recruited high school area, and the big programs beat out Penn State.

That's a great story. And yes, he has upgraded. I know nothing about cars, so I couldn't tell you what it is that he drives, but it's very nice.

Also, I don't stalk him. I've just met him on enough occasions that I've seen his car.

So nothing out of you about Penn State 13 minutes away from the vaunted NIT Championship Game?

I really couldn't give a flying fuck about the NIT, but I'm glad that Penn State's doing well and that the end of the season wasn't a total letdown.

Philly is one of the nation's basketball hot spots (in my eyes). I would think that even if Penn State could not recruit some of the big names you mentioned, that they could at least recruit the talent that fills the rosters at Temple, St. Joes, Drexel, Nova, etc. It is a big school that plays in a well respected conference and a pretty good place to get an education (often not something these kids are even looking at).

It's kinda like the Philly Soul winning the Arena Championship!

I think for many of the players who play in the Big 5, they'd prefer to stay local than to go to "the middle of nowhere" for Penn State.

I do know for a fact that Penn State attempts to recruit there. However, they frequent the suburbs of Philly more than the city itself.

I hear that the cows outnumber the humans in State College, even on football Saturdays.
