    Penn State made it official today: no fans at Fall sporting events:

    https://gopsusports.com/news/2020/8/...y-barbour.aspx

    "As of today, the current large group gatherings guidance from the (Pennsylvania) Governor's office limits capacity to 250 people for outside events and 25 people for inside events. Therefore, under the current conditions and current state orders, our fall sports events would be conducted without fans in the general seating areas of our facilities."

    "Regardless of whether we play or don't play, our revenue losses will be in the high eight figures, reaching nine figures in the case of no competition."

    I just read two articles: The USCHO article on Celeste Brown taking the RIT job. The trailblazer from Montana says she is back in "Tiger Country."

    The second article was the Article on Laing, the two time Princeton Captain on getting her driver's license. Kampresal must be proud of his former player showing her resiliency. I think he won't issue her number at Penn State in her honor. That's a small, but meaningful gesture.

    That would be me. You're welcome! Here's my post:

    She'll be the new head coach at RIT now that they've fired the coaches from this year. You heard it here first!"

    Every recruit deserves their day in the sun, I'm just glad the young lady did not have a change in heart or PSU over recruited. I'm going with the faux pas. Penn State's IT and public relations seems to ebb and flow with graduating students. At least, I hope that is the explanation....

    Here you go - they finally posted the "Meet The Freshmen" video of Alyssa Machado: https://twitter.com/PennStateWHKY/st...91270622121985

    I hope she gets a little extra slack in the leash, being a recent (2015) RIT grad. I think the powers-that-be must be pretty happy to have her on the bench, though, and she's going to be a lot more relatable to the players than her predecessors were.

    Kind of funny, I was trying to decide if I was even missing hockey fandom considering some of the nonsense and challenges that go with it... then a reporter I follow posted a pic of the Blue Jackets practicing at the Ice Haus in Columbus....and I realized just looking at a pic how much I miss it.
    Like every off season, I'm having hockey withdrawals, but it's worse this summer wondering if there will be a season that fans get to watch in person at the arena. It's probably even worse for a Mercyhurst fan, being set to host the national tournament at the end of this season!

    Like the in league hires. Lots of history between all these coaches. Colontino coached at Hurst of course, and now RMU. Celeste at Penn State and RIT. Flanagan’s Saints and Kampersal’s Tigers played Hurst a ton over the years, more than HE schools or most WCHA schools did, so when those guys joined the league they kind of fit right in from a Hurst fan perspective. Kind of ironic that the one a person can’t link in is US gold medalist and LU Coach Shelley Looney, but I guess she will build up her own coaching history soon enough. Very curious to see if Nicole Hensley sticks around that program as a coach. Would certainly be a positive for them.

Now we just need this pandemic to end so we can get back to the games.

    I'm happy for her returning to her alma mater to be the head coach - I wondered how long Penn State was going to be able to hold onto her. I hope she can get RIT moving upward again. I remember her as an RIT player and didn't like her playing against Penn State because she was so tenacious, but loved her as a coach here. Best of luck to her!

    Those are all big questions on a lot of minds, the job market in May 2021 could have a lot to do with a lot of players' decisions and just not at Penn State.

    This morning I see Penn State took down the 2020-21 roster - no idea what that's supposed to mean. No big deal, really, since we've already seen it.

    Good catch on roster being posted. There are definitely some answers to questions: Brenneman yes, Slattery yes, Adollfson yes, Machado yes and Fidler. Now will there be a season?
    I was glad to see Jessica Adolfsson didn't throw in the towel, and is back for a 2020-21 season, if there is one (and I doubt there will be). I noticed she isn't listed as a redshirt, but maybe having played in 12 games last season, before her injury, nullified a redshirt option.

    I was kind of surprised to see Sophie Slattery on the roster when Loli Fidler got cut - they were both in the dog house all of last season, but apparently Slattery chose to work her way out and Fidler didn't. I wonder if Fidler will ever understand the opportunity she threw away.

    With Jenna Brenneman officially on the roster, Jeff Kampersal officially has kind of a funny "problem", having five goalies for 2020-21. If there is no 2020-21 season, I really can't see Brenneman (who was a 2019-20 graduate) sticking around for yet another year, just to see if there will be a 2021-22 season. I even wonder if Chantal Burke would stick around after she graduates next May, if there is no 2020-21 senior season for her.

    2021-22 is supposed to end with the women's national tournament being hosted at Penn State.
