MAC favorites Ohio stun Penn State, 24-14
Bill O’Brien’s head coaching debut did not go to plan, as Penn State gave up 21 unanswered points in the second half of a 24-14 loss in sun-soaked and drained Beaver Stadium. Ohio quarterback Tyler Tettleton passed for two touchdowns in the second half, one a lucky tip that may have been a sign of thing to come and the other the clinching score to wide receiver Donte Foster in the corner of the end zone late in the fourth quarter.
Things did seem to start well for Penn State, adjusting to a new offensive style and looking for young players to step in to some key roles. Quarterback Matt McGloin showed accuracy and confidence in the first quarter by completing 13 of 17 passes for 130 yards and a touchdown. His efficiency tailed off though, going 27-for-48 with a late interception off a tipped pass, 260 yards and two touchdowns. His receivers did not help him at times though, dropping some passes in their direction, a recurring nightmare from last season’s sometimes anemic offense. Allen Robinson led the receiving game with 97 yards on nine catches and seven different players got their hands on the football throughout the day.

Penn State alumnus (and NFL Hall of Famer) Franco Harris brought a cardboard cutout of Joe Paterno to his luxury box at Beaver Stadium for Saturday's PSU football game against Ohio.
The Paterno cutout held a sign reading "Due Process for PSU JVP".
We understand Harris' loyalty to his college coach, and he's entitled to express his opinion, but the...
For many young Nittany Lions, the 2012 NFL offseason is now nothing more than the memory of a glorified summer camp.
Final cuts were made on Friday and 13 Nittany Lions fell victim to roster downsizing. The only genuine surprise of the cuts — in my opinion — was that of Steelers punter Jeremy Kapinos. More on that later on in the post.
Despite the negativity built in to...
A lot of eyes were focused State College, Pennsylvania and Penn State on Saturday, as the Nittany Lions opened the team’s first season in nearly 50 years without Joe Paterno as head coach.
Even more though than the absence of Paterno, most want to know how the school would fare under the weight of some of the most serious sanctions ever levied against a major college football...
Saturday afternoon wasn’t quite the start that new coach Bill O’Brien wanted for his new era of Penn State football.
The Nittany Lions squandered an 11-point halftime lead as Ohio quarterback Tyler Tettleton accounted for three second-half touchdowns to fuel the Bobcats’ upset in Beaver Stadium. The loss was Penn State’s first in a season opener since losing to eventual national...
Before the start of Penn State/University of Ohio college football game, I assumed that someone would bring a cut-out of former head coach Joe Paterno into the stadium but I didn't think it would be seen with former Penn State great Franco Harris.
Check out the below picture of Franco with the cut-out and the shot of the cut-out from his private box:
For those of...
Former Penn State and NFL fullback Franco Harris was in attendance this past Saturday to watch the Bill O’Brien era debut to a thud when the Nittany Lions lost to Ohio 24-14 from Beaver Stadium.
Harris was in attendance with Sue Harris, Joe Paterno’s widow, conservative talk show host John Ziegler and a cardboard cutout of the late Penn State head coach which read “due process...
Most everyone I know delighted in the fact that Penn State lost to Ohio from the MAC on Saturday. Serves them right, was the chorus from people rightfully outraged by Penn State’s scandal. Most right minded people recognize that Jerry Sandusky was the original doer of evil, while Joe Paterno, the Penn State faculty and the pervasive religion of Penn State football made the scandal...
I know your life and career is signified by one magical “immaculate reception” that pulled victory out of certain defeat but Franco Harris just let this one go. Its over.
The former Penn State running back as taken the main(solo) defender position of Joe Paterno to the extreme by placing a cardboard cutout of Paterno holding a sign “Due Process for PSU JVP” in his box...
Sprawled out in the Ohio end zone, grasping for something well beyond his reach, safety Jacob Fagnano’s posture as the game-clinching Ohio Bobcat TD was scored felt like a fitting end to the first game of the post-Paterno era at Penn State.
Fitting because Fagnano hailed from the defensive side of the ball. Everyone expected a steep learning curve on offense—especially due to...
