Video blog: Penn State sanctions; Tubby Smith signs extension
July 26, 2012 — 11:28am
After a full day of news in the world of collegiate sports, we discuss what the Penn State sanctions mean for the immediate and extended future in Happy Valley, and locally, how Gophers coach Tubby Smith's contract extension could affect the coming season.
This is Amelia Rayno's fifth season on the Gophers men's basketball beat. She learned college basketball in North Carolina (Go Tar Heels!), where fanhood is not an option. In 2010, she joined the Star Tribune after graduating from Boston's Emerson College, which sadly had no exciting D-I college hoops to latch onto. Amelia has also worked on the sports desk at the Boston Globe and interned at the Detroit News. Follow Rayno on Twitter @AmeliaRayno.
