You may have heard smatterings of gossip this weekend: Penn Band seniors got engaged at Saturday night’s basketball game. As campus collectively gasped in shock, compassion and jealousy, UTB went to work to put the rumors to bed. And…SHE SAID YES! We’ve got the video of a 2012 alum and former Penn Band member asking young Susie to marry him during the game, which we of course lost.
The groom-to-be, we have discovered through investigative journalism, rocks a third nipple, hence his nickname “Pips” (Penn + Nips, brilliant). As for the bride, though she wore a band shirt, Susie doesn’t even go here – but she met Pips while LARPing (really). Congrats, you two!

Meet the Penn men’s basketball team of 1920. Believe it or not, this motley crew managed to win the Eastern Intercollegiate League title, which was the league Penn played in before the Ivy League was created. Good looks, team. Those knee pads are really intimidating.
Jerome Allen has officially been named Men’s Basketball coach. Allen, a Penn alum, has served as the interim coach since Glen Miller was fired in December. Under Allen’s leadership, the team fared slightly better after their winless stint with Miller, finishing 6-22 for the season. During recent weeks, Penn Athletics Director Steve Bilsky said they had narrowed the search down to nine coaches, from hundreds.
