A tweet, a hoot, a flap and a roar


More odds and ends...

-- Breaking news out of State College that Joe Paterno was taken to Mount Nittany Medical Center today because of dehydration. Thoughts and prayers are with him, of course, though it's no surprise to read team spokeman Guido D'Elia's words that Paterno is "mad as heck" about not being at work.

(UPDATE: Paterno has since been released; information in the link above.)

-- Temple is looking for a new women's basketball coach, with Dawn Staley having left for South Carolina. Mel Greenberg has the latest news and rumors at Women's Hoops Guru. Some of the names are pretty big as far as local women's basketball goes, and I've heard that money is not an object in the search process.

-- St. Joe's has a new mascot-wearer for the coming year: rising senior Tim Klarich. According to the press release I got, he's a business administration major (take that, Wharton) and has been a team manager in recent years.

Klarich is the 31st Hawk in school history, and his older brother Steve was the Hawk from 2001-03. They say the Hawk will never die, but they do seem to be born on a regular basis.

-- And finally, as you might notice from the bio box, there's yet another way to get the information here on the blog. After trying very hard to resist it over the last few months, I've joined Twitter and have set up an account for the blog.

Click here to start following the feed. Right now, you get alerts when there are new blog posts as well as when there are new college sports stories posted to Philly.com. We can also use it as a discussion forum, and maybe I'll do some live commentary on there when I start covering things again (heaven forbid).
