    Re: 2018-19 Penn State Nittany Lions

    And if you're in the area this coming weekend and have $5.00 to spare, Penn State plays their home opening (exhibition) game against Ryerson University in five days (Saturday the 22nd at 1:00 PM) at Pegula Ice Arena. For whatever reason, Penn State is ignoring this game in favor of promoting the official season opener at Colgate on the 28th, which I don't understand. Who's excited for an away game when you could be home at Pegula and get a first look at the 2018-19 team in person? Makes no sense to me. Who cares if it's an exhibition game? It's at home, and the next home series isn't until October 5-6. Me and my cow bell will be there, and I can't wait.

    You really shouldn't encourage me to dress funny and dance around when I cow bell. I'm pretty easy to encourage.

    Short notice, but at 12:45 (Eastern) the hockey team is doing its media day with head coach Jeff Kampersal and two of the players:

    With most preseason media days short of any real gems, I thought there were some interesting things to come out of yesterday's quick media day (https://gopsusports.com/watch/?Archi...4&type=Archive ...skip to 21:00).

    I didn't realize that Princeton plays mostly one-and-done games on their schedule, so I was surprised to hear Kampersal bring that up and say that two-game series were something he had to get used to in his first season at Penn State last year. I also never really thought about the Ivy League schools' lack of scholarships, and Kampersal having to figure out how they work and how to use them, so he had some pretty big adjustments to make overall in how he coaches/recruits hockey.

    It was good to hear that all three goalies will get a period of play on Saturday against Ryerson University, so hopefully Ryerson tests each of them. Kampersal said the starting job is open and the three goalies are even as far as their chances for playing time this season, but I suppose he wasn't going to say anything much different at a media day. Still, junior Jenna Brenneman and sophomore Chantal Burke have about an equal amount of career playing time in net (not much), so neither of them can be considered an automatic starter over the other, and redshirt freshman Cam Leonard has got to be chomping at the bit. It was really tough to lose junior goalie Daniela Paniccia, but I think Penn State is in good shape for goalies.

    My favorite line from Kampersal: "Three more years of Natalie Heising is a good thing". Absolutely, and I would add the two more years of junior Brooke Madsen as well. Madsen doesn't get the press that Heising gets, but she's a playmaker.

    Penn State had a pretty easy time with Ryserson University this afternoon, winning 4-0 on goals from freshman Loli Fidler, freshman Jessica Adolfsson, sophomore Katie Rankin, and senior Meike Meilleur. Ryerson only managed eight shots in the game, to Penn State's 31.

    ...and here's some video from today. Cut me some slack, I'm just trying this out, so it's longer than any future videos will be:
