Penn State Basketball Tickets Seeing Sharp Rise in Demand

Last year, I was astonished to learn that no media members travel to cover Penn State Nittany Lions college basketball. I mean they’re a Big Ten team right? They had the Crispins! And they upset North Carolina to reach the Elite 8 in 2001.

Then I started watching more PSU games on television (I have a Talor Battle man-crush- that’s my excuse) and noticed the lower bowl of the Bryce Jordan Center is 60-70% empty for most games, and they don’t even bother opening the upper bowl. So I understood.

Then I noticed their fans, how few of there are, act extremely BUSH LEAGUE in the way they frequently storm the court following victories over very mediocre teams. Well, hopefully they’ll grow up and learn how to “act like they’ve been there before,” now that their ranks are swelling in numbers.

2010 Big Ten Power Rankings

1. Ohio State– Yes, it’s kind of boring that the 5 time consecutive conference champion is the overwhelming favorite yet again. But this is not a boring team, they’re a legitimate national title contender. Half their secondary is nominated for the Thorpe Award (nation’s best DB), half their DL should be taken in the first couple rounds of the NFL Draft, They have the two best LBs in the Big Ten…well you get the idea. Because it’s the same story on the other side of the ball too. The Big Ten is once again there’s for the taking.
