Zack Rosen made a strong case for why he may just be the best guard in the city. Unfortunately for the rest of his Quaker teammates, his game-high 27-points would not be enough. The Temple University Owls barely survived the Penn Quakers on Monday night, needing overtime to ultimately escape the Palestra with a 73-67 victory.

The Temple Owls will be without Khalif Wyatt this evening when they take on the Penn Quakers, as the guard serves a one-game suspension for a “minor internal matter.” Tonight’s match up will be the Quakers’ 2011-2012 home opener, and the Owls first game of the season. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m and can be heard 1210 AM.

Some weren’t sure there’d be a football game between Penn State and Nebraska today. Would they cancel out of shame, respect, fear? The answer is no, that the game will go on, unless something shocking happens between now and kickoff. One person has already tried to derail the game with a bomb threat, just part of the circus going on in Happy Valley today.

A grassroots Penn State alumni group (one not affiliated with the University or the Alumni Association) decided they’re tired of seeing the focus on the football team and coaches. The real issue so many people seemed to have missed or quickly moved on from is the victims and the horrible crimes committed against them.
Working with RAINN, a charity aimed at helping victims of sexual abuse, the goal is to raise $500,000, which amounts to about $1 for every Penn State alumnus.

ABC’s Jim Gardner broke the news on twitter tonight that Paterno would not coach another game, and that Spanier had resigned.
Gardner reports that assistant coach Tom Bradley will be interim coach.

Sexual Abuse Charges Filed Against Jerry Sandusky; Penn State Officials Charged With Perjury and Failure to Report
Nov 5, 2011, 12:38 PM EDT
Disturbing news out of the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office today, where charges of child sexual abuse have been filed against former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. Charges of perjury and failure to report have been entered against Timothy Curley, Penn State’s Athletic Director, and Gary Schultz, Senior VP of Finance and Business, a position that oversees the Penn State police department. Head coach Joe Paterno is also said to have testified to a grand jury, although he has not been charged with wrongdoing.
Sandusky is the founder of a program called The Second Mile, which operates programs for young people, according to a press release given by the Attorney General’s office. A grand jury investigation has identified eight boys as being targets of sexual activity by Sandusky between 1994 and 2009; all of the encounters began with Second Mile activities.
