#19 Penn State Nittany Lions vs. Youngstown State Penguins — can you feel it?!
Ya, me neither. I have never been this unenthusiastic about the kickoff of a Penn State football season. Ugh,these FCS games are terrible, but they are not going away even as the Big Ten looks to expand to 9 conference games (Patriot-News). As for Saturday’s game, the way I look at it — beating the Penguins is always a good thing. We don’t know who the quarterback(s) will be (CDT), but it shouldn’t matter. I think there will be a rotation between Kevin Newsome and Matt McGloin with Robert Bolden getting a look in the second half.

Bob Flounders of the Patriot-News is chatting at 2 p.m. He wants Nebraska and Penn State to be rivals (Patriot-News). I’m on board, though Flounders probably should have mentioned he is an alumnus of Nebraska.
Speaking of the Cornhuskers, there is a great story on how Nebraska joined the Big Ten in the Omaha World-Herald today. Graham Spanier, a former Nebraska administrator, played a role.
Look for the transcript and hopefully video of Joe Paterno’s press conference later this evening.
