Iron Lions: The Story of PSU's 2012 season

“Iron Lions” is a documentary film about the remarkable story of Penn State’s 2012 football season featuring many of the coaches and players who made it possible. It will be completed late this year. For a recent installment of The Obligatory PSU Podcast, Kevin Horne, Chris Buchignani, and Mike the Mailman sat down with Penn State alumnus Bob Morgan, one of the movie’s executive producers, to talk about the project — its process, goals, and future. This transcript has been edited for length and clarity.

Tailgate Guys: Quarterbacking Tailgates to Victory Since 2009

While the Penn State Nittany Lions started the season with big wins on the field, fans can now pull away from the competition in the parking lots around Beaver Stadium fans with the help of Tailgate Guys. As anyone that has ever been to Happy Valley knows, a good tailgate is almost as important to the game day experience as a win. With Tailgate Guys, you are guaranteed a win in the parking lot at every home game.

Farewell to the Pitt rivalry

The teams first met 126 years ago, back when Pitt was still called the Western University of Pennsylvania and George Atherton was in the middle of his consequential presidency at the Pennsylvania State College. In front of a crowd far exceeding the capacity of the 500-seat bleachers, the squad of 17 players, not yet known as the Nittany Lions, walloped “the Western boys” 32-0 in the first game at Beaver Field, located on campus behind what is now Osmond Lab. The game, played on a Monday, was delayed two full days because of harsh weather.
