Week in review: NittanyNation
January, 6, 2013
By Josh Moyer | ESPN.com
NittanyNation takes a look at this week’s Penn State football news and what you might have missed:
- Bill O'Brien is sticking with Penn State after flirting with the NFL. And, now that his demands are met, he needs to be all-in with this football program.
- A look at some of NittanyNation's top articles from 2012.
- Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett filed a lawsuit against the NCAA in hopes to overturn the university's sanctions. Penn State's commits said they were mostly taking a wait-and-see approach, and ESPN legal analyst Lester Munson believed the lawsuit was likely doomed.
- A look at coverage of the lawsuit from across the country -- from analysis to reaction and everything between. Also, some highlights from the 43-page lawsuit.
- Christian Hackenberg impressed at Day 1 of the Under Armour practices. And he also talked about what he was looking forward to out of the game.
- Adam Breneman didn't play in the UA Game due to a torn ACL, but he was still there to support Hackenberg. He talked earlier this week about the game.
- At the Army Bowl practices, Garrett Sickels stood out, while 2014 PSU target Mike Grimm dominated at one-on-ones during the combine.
- In other recruiting news, three-star LB Jonathan Walton scheduled an official visit to South Carolina on Jan. 18. WR Drew Scales is still considering a preferred walk-on offer with PSU, while 2014 LB Korie Rogers says he has an offer from PSU, but it's not one of his favorites. And Malcolm Cook is scheduling official visits, and PSU is no longer in the equation.
- PSU commit and early enrollee Anthony Smith answered five questions, ranging from O'Brien staying to the NCAA lawsuit, and fellow PSU commit Neiko Robinson said he wasn't a big fan of the SEC in an in-depth Q&A.
- We compared the 2013 recruiting class to previous years.
