When news breaks, the RedEye sports staff has its opinions - serious and not-so-serious. Here are their thoughts on the Penn State sanctions. Julie DiCaro @juliedicaro I honestly cannot recall this amount of concern over "student- athletes" and a negative impact on other schools when anyone else got sanctioned. (cough, USC, cough). Jimmy Greenfield @jcgreenx I barely stomach college football but I'm watching Penn State play next season.

There exists a place in this great country of ours named Boomland. No, seriously. That's the name. Things like this are sold at Boomland. You should get to one as fast as pos sible.

It would be very easy to hear about a band named Diarrhea Planet and want to ignore them completely.

No beer style inspires the level of heated debate that pumpkin beers do. RedEye's own Kate Bernot and Ernest Wilkins weigh in on the great pumpkin beer debate, though this one may have to be settled with a good old-fashioned arm-wrestling match. GREAT Call me a relativist, but I believe there are no inherently bad beer styles. (I am giving gruit beers the side eye, though.) Yes, there are a few overly spiced, sugar sweet and mapley pumpkin beers out there that are made with exactly zero percent actual pumpkin, but those don't render the...

Welcome, music nerds. Once a year, Austin, Texas, turns into a hipster Mardi Gras paradise for nearly an entire week during the music portion of SXSW. This year, RedEye made the 20-plus-hour road trip to check it out. Here are a few things we noticed along the way. TUESDAY 3/13 11:00 a.m. Everyone at SXSW looks like they're in a band. Everyone. --Ernest Wilkins The first celebrity sighting of the trip? MTV VJ (they still have those, yeah?) Damien Fahey.
