    Official Penn State Nittany Lions Thread

    (Depressing)Football season is almost over so I figured I'd start one for basketball season. As most college hoops fans know we are very, very bad. This team looks nothing like the one that went to the Sweet 16 a few years ago. The team lost to the EA Sports Southeast All Stars and Team Nike in the pre-season. This season will probably be as painful as football was.

    We've got a new head coach in Ed DeChellis. He led East Tennessee State to the Big Dance and cam close to upsetting Wake Forest in the first round. Hopefully he'll have the same affect on the Lions.

    I honestly don't know much about the Lady Lions but my goal for the upcoming season is to learn more about the team. I know they are hell of a lot better than the men's team and that Kelly Mazzante is close to breaking the Big Ten record in points for a career for both men and women. The Lady Lions are ranked #8 in the country going into the season.

    He says he is coaching next season. That is for sure. Other than that it's up in the air. If the team is as successful as it can be (if the team matures and plasy to their abilities they are a BCS team) I can see him sticking around a year or two longer but if we have another sub-par season he might step away. This question as really split Lion Nation as of late.

    You should come down Pitt for the PSU hoops game. PSU hoops might be good next year cause they got a really young squad. Same with football... what do they got, something like just 5 senior starters? Unreal.

    Next year is the year we're looking to finally break out. DeChellis will have been here for a year, Jagla will be a senior and NYC PG Marlon Smith will have had a year's worth of experience. Losing Brandon Watkins adn Shariff Chambliss is going to hurt but DeChellis will do the best with what he's got. Losing to 2 barnstorming teams isn't exactly the way I hoped this season would start.

    I'd come to Pitt if the team had a chance at winning. Pitt will rip us limb for limb. Game will be over at half time. It's not worth making a trip 10-hour trip across the essentially 2 states (counting Pennsylvania and the trip between CT and New York). Chances are the next time I'll be in Pittsburgh will either be a PSU-Pitt football game or when the Packers play the Steelers (which I believe is in 2005).

    well, I think that, at about 72 or so y/o, and with about 3-4 bad losing seasons, perhaps his team is up

    he's had great tenure, been paid well, and should have a good pension plan....perhaps it's time for new coaching blood

    I want to see what he can do with the team next season. There was a lot of young talent this year and a lot of it couldn't live up to what our 4 1st round picks did in 2002. Maurice Humpherey is a promising receiver if he can get a better set of hands. At times, especially in the Northwestern game, why he was a DB before switching. Austin Scott will have a year under his belt and likely be the starter right out of the gate in 2004. We also have Tony Hunt who is also a very talented runner that will eventually find a new position as a TE/WR/FB. With Sean McHugh graduating, likely to the NFL, we'll need to fill that spot but BranDon Snow is the penciled in guy as of now. Besides Gino Capone, Deryck Toles and Rich Gardner graduating the defense is going to be the same which will hopefully provide stability, unlike this year.

    JoePa is getting a talented group if we don't get to a bowl next season then it'll be Joe's time to go. If the team wins a lot of games, which is very possible since both Ohio State and Michigan will be hit hard by graduation, he'll stick around to see the majority of his 2003 recruiting class to leave Happy Valley
