Big save: Recognize that little guy? He’s quarterback Christian Hackenberg. The photo was part of a fantastic piece featured on Grantland yesterday, in which Hackenberg’s parents, Erick and Nikki, talk openly about their son’s decision to commit to Penn State in the wake of the Sandusky scandal—and his role in helping to revitalize the program. Coach Bill O’Brien describes the moment when, after the NCAA sanctions were announced, Hackenberg and his teammates lined up outside O’Brien’s office to tell him they were committed to Penn State: “‘That,” says O’Brien, staring off into space, lost in the memory, ‘was an emotional deal.'”

Remembering JFK: Today marks the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, and this morning, The Patriot News posted a collection of archival photos from JFK’s visit to Harrisburg in September 1960, and asked readers to identify themselves or others in the crowd. Recognize any Penn Staters?

Dancin’ on a Stair: If you haven’t been out to the Pegula Ice Arena for a hockey game, GoPSUTVs video of student Devon Fields dancing up a storm to Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” at last Friday’s game just might be the best advertisement for the new arena ever. The Nittany Lions lost to UMass-Lowell that night — but I think we all know who won the unofficial dance contest.
