Pale, I'm not even a sports fan, much less a college sports fan. I don't think I could name 25 mascots if I tried.

I've heard of those two mascots, but I can't tell you the name of the schools they represent -- except I DO know they are in Texas. Sorry, but watching sports just ain't my thing. Unless, of course, it's Cardinals baseball.

Bugs - come to Pennsylvania - come to a PSU game - I'll see if my son can sneak you into the student section - I can assure you - you will leave the stadium with sore feet from standing the entire game, and no voice!

There is nothing like big-time college football! PSU packs in over 108,000 fans each and every game day. Penn State becomes the third largest 'city' in Pa on game days.

Is there any wonder I say.........

WE ARE........PENN STATE!!!!!!!!!

Hey Pooh!

Having grown up just outside of Philly, I was always a Joe Paterno fan!

But, honestly, I gotta ask, what exactly is a Nittany???

The mountain just south of town is called Mount Nittany. They believe that name came from the indian word 'neet-a-nee' meaning singular mountain or protective barrier.

The Lion mascot got it's name from the mountain lions that roamed Mount Nittany until the late 1800's. The mascot was the creation of Penn State senior H. D. "Joe" Mason in 1907. While on a 1904 trip to Princeton University, Mason had been embarrassed that Penn State did not have a mascot. Mason did not let that deter him: he fabricated the Nittany Lion on the spot and proclaimed that it would easily defeat the Princeton Bengal tiger. Upon returning to campus, though, he set about making his invention a reality. In 1907, he wrote in the student publication The Lemon:

"Every college the world over of any consequence has a college emblem of some kind—all but The Pennsylvania State College . . .. Why not select for ours the king of beasts—the Lion!! Dignified, courageous, magnificent, the Lion allegorically represents all that our College Spirit should be, so why not 'the Nittany Mountain Lion'? Why cannot State have a kingly, all-conquering Lion as the eternal sentinel?" (From Wikipedia)

WE ARE.........PENN STATE!
