BILL BELTON RUMORS & GOSSIP
April 1 brings with it a bunch of comedians and wanna be comedians. The college football world is no exception to this. Some stunts are carefully calculated, while others should have been left on the drawing board al together. And then there are those who just have fun with it on a whim, like Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema on Twitter today, the one-yera anniversary of Bobby Petrino...

Time once again to answer some questions for this week's edition of the Blue White Roundtable. Be sure to visit the redesigned Black Shoe Diaries (I'm getting used to the new look) later on for a full recap from the Penn State blogosphere. The topic this week, of course, is Penn State's Big Ten opener against Illinois this Saturday at noon eastern.
1. Our ground attack...
Bill Belton and Derek Day were dressed on the sidelines for the Temple game on Saturday but thanks to the work of Michael Zordich and Zach Zwinak, Penn State didn’t even have to think about its two starting running backs.
According to the Trib’s Scott Brown, that’s not the case anymore. It looks like Belton’s bum ankle is good to go just in time for Big Ten play. A different...
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...
Tom Brady. 40 points per game. Wes Welker. Rob Gonkowski and Aaron Hernandez.
Those are the things we think about when we think about the New England Patriot offense. Those are the things many Penn State fans are dreaming about when they think about what Bill O’Brien is going to do to the Nittany Lions’ offense.

The NCAA might have banned Penn State from the postseason, but the...

Penn State's depth is being tested before the Nittany Lions play a single snap.
Transfers in the aftermath of strict NCAA sanctions and other offseason departures have new coach Bill O'Brien focusing not on who has departed, but who will step up.
