It's Friday, so we thought we'd let down our hair a little and let you get a little peek into our soul. You wanna know what's in our deepest heart of hearts, underneath the old Phil Steeles and P.J. O' Rourke books? This:

Excuse me, it's...dusty...in here....

Penn State is through with Knowledge. Knowledge Timmons, that is. He, along with two other Penn State players, will be booted from the team in connection with a fight at the HUB last year.

Timmons was suspended for Penn State's final regular season game against Michigan State and then for the Alamo Bowl in connection with an Oct. 7 fight in the HUB-Robeson Center, for which he was charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct and defiant trespass. Also in connection with that fight, defensive tackle Chris Baker and linebacker Navorro Bowman were charged with aggravated assault, harassment and stalking, simple assault and disorderly conduct. Neither played against Michigan State or in the Alamo Bowl.

Joe Pa getting this disciplinarianish post-season is a bold stand in post-season punishment. Now, if you'll excuse us, we're going to beat our dog for that time she shat in our Chuck Taylors three years ago. We're sure she'll understand just why we're doing this.

West Virginia has hired Jeff Mullen, quarterbacks coach at Wake Forest, as their new offensive coordinator. Wake runs the the fun orbit sweep, run-heavy Lobotzke-bone offense with marginal D-1 talent; it'll be fun watching what Mullen brings to an attack that will, for the third year, feature the plague of Pat White, who when healthy earns cardiologists dollars around the Big East metropolitan area thanks to defensive coordinators suffering chest pains thinking about him.
