Who Will Be The First Number 1 Seed To Fall? (Vote In Poll)






     It is that time of year again, the time where madness is running rampant all over the nation! March Madness has finally sprung upon us, with many filling out brackets, some with safe picks, others filled with upsets, and a good handful of them being busted within the first day. This year's number 1 seeds for the 2014 Men's March Madness are the Florida Gators, Arizona Wildcats, Virginia Cavaliers, and Wichita State. One question that is always one of the first ones asked when the field of 68 is announced is who will be the first number 1 seed to fall. Let me know who you which number one seed you think will be the first to exit this year's tournament!

40 Times At The NFL Combine By Penn State Players






     I already compromised a list of both the fastest 40 times and reps performed on the Bench Press from all players from 1999-2013 at the NFL Combine. ( Which you can view them here noodleofnam.blogspot.com/2012/09/fastest-nfl-combine-40-yard-dashes.html and here http://noodleofnam.blogspot.com/2014/02/most-reps-performed-for-225lb-bench.html )

     Being a fan, I decided to do a list of the fastest 40 times exclusively on Penn State players. I will provide a time category, the player's name with their clocked time, and the year in which they performed in the event.
