Only Joe Iorio Until Penn State Football

63 days - nine weeks - until Penn State football.

Sylvania, OH native Joe Iorio will forever hold a special (if obscure) place in Penn State football history. As a freshman walk-on, Iorio became the first non-scholarship player to start a game in his first season under Joe Paterno. For the sake of avoiding redundancy, Cari covered this feat, along with the rest of Iorio's career, in detail last year.

Unfortunately, I don't have any additional Joe Iorio stories - he was slightly before my time. So instead of you reading any further blogging improv, might I suggest you get outside and start grilling. It's America's birthday, for cryin' out loud, and she wants you to stuff yourself with meats. Hop to it.
