He lifts, bro: If, for some reason, you’re not impressed by the fact that junior defensive tackle Derek Dowrey can squat 500 pounds, then how about this fact: Derek Dowrey can squat 500 pounds — for 10 reps. It’s “Max Out” week for the Penn State football team, and assistant communications director Tony Mancuso ’08 (@GoPSUTony) tweeted this photo of Dowrey’s quarter-ton feat during practice yesterday afternoon. And judging by the crowd surrounding the squat rack, Mancuso’s next tweet might just be the understatement of the century: “The team was fired up.”

Good rep: Penn State nabbed the 39th spot in this year’s Times Higher Education World Reputation Ranking, a jump from last year’s 49th place. The rankings are based on a survey of 300,000 academics and researchers, who were asked to identify the best teaching and research universities in the world. Harvard University lands at No. 1. See the entire list here.

Wine of the times: Here’s a cool story from yesterday’s Tribune-Review: Denise Gardner ’07 is Pennsylvania’s state enologist — an expert in winemaking and wine. And thanks to the home winemaking trend, Gardner’s wine workshops for the Penn State Extension enology program are in hot demand.
