Excerpt: "Current Penn State students can’t remember this. But something very close to what happened this year in Lincoln happened 18 years ago in State College. Penn State opened a new arena. All eight home games in the place were sold out – that’s right, the Jordan Center was sold out and filled with 15,261 fans every game. Hard to believe? It happened. And the Nittany Lions didn’t merely finish 11-7 in the Big Ten and in fourth place like the Cornhuskers; they finished 12-6 in the Big Ten and tied for second."
