On Wednesday, Penn State went into Assembly Hall in Champaign to face the 16th ranked Fighting Illini.

The McDonalds All-American roster has been announced and all I have to say is BOO!!!!
There is one player from the state of Tennessee who should have definitely made the roster. John Jenkins of Station Camp High School in Hendersonville, TN should have been on the roster. I mean he is tearing it up his senior year and he did not make it?

A-Rod Steroid Use

By imwrilliekuhl
I think that A-Rod did break the rules; but look at all the other players that were on performance enhancing drugs. There are a lot of mediocre players that get the 50 game suspension, then everyone forgets and moves on. A-Rod's situation needs to be forgotten. His test results weren't even suppose to be released in the first place. Please give the guy a break and let him play baseball so we can all enjoy the sport.

If you don't work your hardest, you will never gain any skill, and your only hurting yourself. ...Keep reading!

Yes! I picked the upset Purdue over Mich St. so that brings my streak total to 2&Tonight there were a lot of tough games to choose from.Hornets v Magic and Virgina and VT but I decieded to pick Miami over Florida State at Florida. The reason I picked Miami is because they have had a way tougher sched and only lost to Duke by 3 in OT&UNC by 4 an addtion they have have lost 6 of 8 this team is too good to go on this long of a drought they despertly need this one and i think they will git it.
