Penn St's THON is it's on separate beast that is similar to Dance Marathon.  Campuses that hold a Dance Marathon give the money raised to children's hospitals.  The THON gives money to different organizations each year because they raise soooo much money each and in some ways want to "share the wealth" among various health research organizations.  

In college I was highly involved with Dance Marathon on my campus and was one of the directors my senior year.  I know that all the money we raised went directly to the children's hospital.  The money we raised did not go directly to the families and help with their medical bills.  It went to help fund the Child Life Specialists who's job is to make the children in the hospital feel as normal as possible while they are receiving treatment.

It is great to hear about Newsome.  Dance Marathon is one of the greatest fundraising events in college. All the money raised goes to local children's hospitals.  I participated all 4 years of college and I can attest to impact these events have on the lives of families that have had children spend extensive time in the hospital.

hahaha yes, hence the word depth :)

I think they would like to be able to do what they did in the National Championship game and that is be able to rotate guys like crazy.

I will not be going to see it.  I will just have to leave it at that because I'm pretty sure my reasons for not wanting to go see it go against the commenting policy.

Yes, please let them continue to believe that everyone at Cass Tech sucks. We are more than willing to take all of their "sucky" players.

I think it will be Landers and Schmidt.  Landers looks to have good hands and be very disruptive in the middle.  IIRC Schmidt had freakish athleticism and will develop into a great tackle.

Since everyone was complaining about there not being any downvotes, I took the liberty to downvote everyone on this thread.

I want Ohio St. to start the season off ranked number 2 or 3.  I want an angry team that is working towards something and that thinks people are doubting them.  What better way to motivate them than to rank them not #1?
