Weekend Recap

Penn State beats #22 Illinois 38-24. Welcome to the party Derrick Williams. Williams, one of the top recruits a few years ago, had the best game of his career. Williams rushed, caught, and returned a kick off for a touchdown, earning him the Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week. The game was the closest so far for the Lions, who better work on hanging onto the ball if they want to remain in the National Championship picture. Too many fumbles are going to get you sooner or later.

The baseball season is over and our Pirates finished 67-95, just 30.5 games out of first. GM Neil Huntington wasted no time in firing pitching coach Jeff Andrews and first-base coach Lou Frazier. You have to blame someone. Manager John Russell and the rest of his coaching staff will stay.

The MLB playoffs start Wednesday. It's the Dodgers-Cubs and Brewers-Phillies in the NL. The AL has the RedSox-Angels and the winner of the AL Central-Rays. It's a Rays-Phillies World Series.

and finally... Does everyone know that OCB has a taco bar? My life is now complete.
