Wrapping a week’s worth of Penn State football news into one whirlwind podcast, our full cast of characters share one long, lingering glance back at the Stripe Out before closing the book on the Nittany Lions’ non-revenge-game “Revenge Game” shutout of the Indiana Hoosiers. Brandon Noble, who once upon a time played for college-legend-turned-NFL-punchline Steve Spurrier, shares some perspective on the current controversy embroiling analyst-turned-laughingstock Urban Meyer, and the guys give their thoughts on what will be the biggest game yet of a season sure to be full of them for #4 Penn State, a road trip to the hostile environs of Kinnick Stadium to take on the #3 Iowa Hawkeyes.
WHAT IS THE OBLIGATORY PSU PODCAST?
The Obligatory PSU Podcast features wide-ranging discussions of Penn State sports, Nittany Lions football in particular, and all things Penn State and Happy Valley from the cast of The Obligatory PSU Pregame Show: Former Penn State and NFL defensive lineman Brandon Noble (’92-97), campus icon Mike “the Mailman” Herr, Onward State managing editor emeritus Kevin Horne, and Nittany Valley Society president Chris Buchignani. Along with a rotating cast of characters from around State College and across Nittany Nation, the guys focus on the stories, issues, and personalities surrounding the Blue and White fan experience.
The Obligatory PSU Podcast delivers fun and insightful commentary on the teams, University, and place that are beloved by many thousands of students, alumni, and fans. There’s no pretense of objectivity or “journalistic” distance here; these guys are here because they care, and their Penn State knowledge and love shine through in every installment. The goal is to touch on a broad variety of topics relating to the Nittany Lions in conversations that are frequently funny and occasionally profound, all while enjoying a few (or more) adult beverages. If you’ve got Penn State in your blood, you’ll enjoy sharing the journey with us.
