Penn State just announced that they won't be allowing fans. As much as I would love to be there. If this is the way we get football, so be it.
Current Pennsylvania governor’s order only allows 250 in an outdoor group. If the order changes, Penn State will re-evaluate fans in the stands.

Re: What if Flynn makes the half court shot?

Honestly, I think we lose in OT for the same reason as Tim above ^^^. Very hard to recover when the greatest shot in your program’s history doesn’t win it.

Re: New basketball venue for usu

I don’t see how you expand the court as shown in the renovation drawing without putting front row seats on top of walls or raising the court quite a bit. Either way you separate the crowd from the court which is one of the best things about the Spectrum. Noise is definitely intimidating but maybe ev...

Sitting right on top of the action due to proximity to the field and steep stands. Really not a bad seat in the house for watching a game. Creature comforts are another thing entirely.
