The changes keep coming at Penn State. The latest example is a new sign on the team’s sideline, with the Twitter hash tag #OneTeam. Penn State opens the season Sept. 1 vs. Ohio, and this sign is hardly the only thing that will be different from last season. Earlier this week, Penn State also announced it will have new uniforms for the 2012 season. @KevinOnCFB tweeted a picture of the new sign Thursday morning, and you can see it and other Penn State media day coverage in this post.
BTN analyst Gerry DiNardo and the rest of the BTN crew was in Iowa City, Iowa, Wednesday to shoot the Iowa Preview Show.

In town playing Detroit, injured New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez toured Michigan’s new basketball Player Development Center on Wednesday. Not exactly sure of the connection, but here’s something we’re pretty confident about: Yankee teammate and Ohio State product Nick Swisher was nowhere near Ann Arbor and will have some choice words for the three-time AL MVP. See Michigan Basketball’s Facebook page’s picture of Rodriguez with the basketball staff in this post.
Jared Sullinger and William Buford are gone, but Thad Matta still has plenty of talent coming back for the 2012-13 season. In Aaron Craft and Deshaun Thomas, Ohio State figures to boast one of the Big Ten’s elite duos. Throw in role player Lenzelle Smith and youngsters LaQuinton Ross and Sam Thompson, and the Buckeyes should be just fine. Athlon Sports believes in the Buckeyes, and that’s why the publication was in Columbus recently for a photo shoot. See a picture in this post.
If you missed it Thursday, the highly anticipated and always criticized USA Today preseason top 25 poll was released. Four Big Ten teams made the cut, led by No. 8 Michigan. Also ranked: No. 12 Wisconsin, No. 13 Michigan State and No. 16 Nebraska. While the coaches think Michigan is the Big Ten’s top team entering the 2012 season, BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart writes Michigan State should be ranked the highest. And I think it should be back-to-back Big Ten champ Wisconsin.

In a world where it’s becoming more and more difficult to keep up with all of the uniform changes going on across the college football landscape, Penn State is a breath of fresh air. With the exception of a minor detail here or there, Penn State’s uniform looks a lot like it did in our grandfather’s day. But with all the changes going on around the school, is this the time for the team to finally alter its look?
The Penn State football family is a tight one. Current and former players hit Twitter on Monday to offer their feelings on the NCAA’s stiff punishments, which included vacating wins from 1998-2011, a $60 million fine, a four-year postseason ban and the loss of 10 scholarships each of the next four seasons. See all the best tweets, including one from former running back and current Washington Redskin Evan Royster, in this post.
