The madness of the NHL Trade Deadline in Philadelphia, which passed at 3:00 p.m. on Monday, did not limit itself to the Flyers’ offices at the Wells Fargo Center.It touched Penn’s campus as well.After scheduling quirks forced the Calgary Flames away from the usual venue in which teams visiting the Flyers practice and to Penn, a pair of the squad’s sessions at the University’s Class of 1923 Arena quickly verged into the surreal as the team’s management wheeled and dealed earlier this week.On Sunday, the Flyers hosted their annual Flyers Wives’ Carnival, a massive charity event that took up the entire floor at the Wells Fargo Center and featured a Ferris wheel that fit inside the building by — quite literally — an inch.
Already written off as bound for last place in the Ivy League, Penn basketball came oh-so-close to pulling off an upset on Yale that would have sent the conference into chaos.
Staring at the ultimate humiliation of a 20+ point loss to Brown, Penn basketball relied on an unlikely group of characters to give itself a chance. It still wasn’t enough.
For Penn sprint football, Eric Furda is something more than the Dean of Admissions.
Penn basketball — like most of Brown’s opponents — thought it could beat the Bears by limiting their powerful forwards, Rafael Maia and Cedric Kuakumensah.JR Hobbie begged to differ.
What’s the cure for a hangover?Penn basketball is in deleted "a" need of some relief after following up big Friday victories on its first two Ivy weekends of the season with equally deflating losses the day after.The Quakers (7-12, 3-6 Ivy) will take a crack at finding a cure on their own floor when they host Yale and Brown for a back-to-back at the Palestra.Last Friday, the Quakers took advantage of a second-half rally to stun Cornell in Ithaca, winning, 71-69, on a floater by junior guard Tony Hicks with only four seconds left.Saturday, though, Hicks and pretty much all of his teammates — save for freshman forward Sam Jonesadded "freshman forward" site: https://quakernet.alumni.upenn.edu/member/?mid=434213 — went MIA.
For a moment, it looked as if Penn basketball had turned a corner when it gave then-No. 5 Villanova a serious scare at home on Saturday.Apparently not.Playing to a mostly-empty Palestra crowd, the Quakers came out sleepwalking against Monmouth and paid dearly.
Take a step back into the world of 1990’s rap, if you will, and pause to consider Penn coach Jerome Allen surveying the state of his team with a withering look somewhat akin to the gaze of the Nurse Ratched figure in Eminem’s “The Real Slim Shady” video.“I don’t really know where we’re at,” he said when asked to describe his team’s progress following last night’s 82-67 loss to La Salle.
About a half-hour before one of Penn basketball’s typical Tuesday evening practices, assistant coach Ira Bowman was counting out Greg Louis — literally.

The Red and Blue (0-5) are slated to travel to Annapolis, Md. to take on Navy, one of the slowest-paced teams in the entire country.
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — The past two seasons, Penn basketball has come up short against Wagner when it mattered most, failing to execute with the game on the line and then coming up short in overtime.But this year’s 64-61 loss to the Seahawks hurts so much more.The Quakers came out like gangbusters in this one, shooting 11-for-18 in the first half.
The way Penn football celebrated at midfield after defeating Cornell, giving retiring coach Al Bagnoli a ceremonial Gatorade shower, you’d almost have thought the Quakers somehow managed to capture a 10th Ivy title for their leader on some sort of technicality.
For as much as he’s loathed talking about it, the time has finally come: Al Bagnoli’s last game is this Saturday. And with both Penn football and Cornell struggling this season, the action on the field will likely be secondary.
