If you happened to be walking on campus around noon yesterday you may have run into a quarterback walking to class, in the rain, without a umbrella or rain jacket. That my friends is poise, stupidity..or proof that he makes it rain. I like to think it's the 1st and the 3rd reason.
Anyway, regardless of Bolden's abilities to control the weather he's headed into what should be one of the many big games he start under center for Penn State. While fighting through the corn mazes will provide a difficult challenge even for the most seasoned vets, this team has played pretty decently on the road in front of a tough crowd, against a team better than Iowa. We've gone over the Alabama game 1.5 million times, but Penn State should find some calm in knowing they can operate in a hostile situation. Hopefully the outcome is different, or closer, but Rob Bolden can make it rain. Possibly even literally.
It's nice to know that the media understands how players learn and get better. In the book "Linebacking by The Reading Eagle" Sean Lee woke up one morining and said "You know what? I'm going to be great today" and that was that. I understand the point they're trying to make but between a year off from injury, and youth, you feel like they get maybe a little tiny bit of slack.
My mom says that about me, but that was before band concert's and lacrosse games. Speaking of which, I heard this great fact about Evan Royster did you know he was recruited to....

I wanted to link to this, but I was afraid that you wouldn't click it on the off chance Bryant Gumble is somebody you don't like. I watched this program live yesterday and it was epic to watch somebody in the media to finally say what we're thinking. I'm sure you all have opinions to share on the matter, but I think he nails it on the head.
Well written article about DeChellis' last pickup. It's nice to see the Collegian covering basketball as a sport and not just bringing it up when somebody goes.."Hey yo, so back in the UNC area they don't lose, so I was thinking like, lets fire Ed, and buy Coach K. We got some money right?" Everybody has thoughts on that who situation, but after a while it gets old.
Some good some bad. Give it a read and decide for yourself.
Have a safe, fun filled weekend everybody. Lets Go State.
