Going green: The Croke Park Classic is still four months away, but preparations are well underway. Yesterday’s Lancaster Online detailed some of the prep going on in Dublin, which includes turning the soccer field into a regulation-size American football field. And it’s not just the big game on Aug. 30 Coach James Franklin is excited about: “It’s going to be cool for our kids — a cultural experience, since most of them have never been outside of the country. I want them to experience the art, music and culture and I hope our guys get a win — along with some good Irish food.” 

Great sport: ESPN writer Dana O’Neil ’90 is on campus today. Onward State reports that she’s lunching with Comm students this afternoon and speaking to the Association for Women in Sports Media tonight. O’Neil, who joined ESPN in 2007, is the incoming president for the U.S. Basketball Writers Association.

Cream of the crop: Now here’s a ranking to get excited about: Bon Appetit magazine ranked U.S. colleges with the best food scenes — and it’s no surprise that Penn State (along with Berkey Creamery and the famous ice cream short course) earned a spot on the list. The logic behind the choice: “Having an ice cream school on campus definitely means good vibes.” 

Hand it to him: Yesterday we told you about the inaugural Herb Hand Pizza Crawl, which was a big hit, raising nearly $5,000 for charity. Coach Hand’s rap debut, however? Check out this video and judge for yourself.
