Success With Hyperlinking Is Ready For Blue/White Weekend

Your only football fix until August comes to you this weekend in State College

Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to your Friday edition of SWH, coming to you on the precipice of a Blue/White Weekend featuring new coaches, new quarterbacks, and new schemes.  Let's get to it.

So...what's happening this weekend? A lot, actually.  As it turns out, the spring scrimmage is a pretty big one for Penn State football, as James Franklin's third year begins with new faces in new places.  Dustin Hockensmith at PennLive has all the details in a Fan Guide.  Long story short:

  • Saturday, April 16th - 2:00 p.m. kickoff
  • Live streaming on BTN2Go, first televised on BTN at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday
  • Weather Forecast -

Just kidding, it'll be about 64 degrees.

Penn State alum and General Manager extraordinaire Matt Millen is in the booth.

But Adam, what about parking? Good question, and good news!  Parking is free on Saturday, according to Matt Martell of the Daily Collegian.  If you're bringing an RV overnight on Friday, it'll cost you $60.  Cash only, evidently.

What do I need to know about the game itself? Not a tremendous amount, since the spring game is basically a chance for fans to tailgate, hang out, and get a look at a bunch of guys who generally won't see a ton of meaningful game action this coming year.  But if you're into overanalyzing everything about Penn State's personnel based on minimal snaps, you can get yourself started by taking a look at the game rosters, which Penn State released on Thursday.  Quarterback Trace McSorley will lead the Blue Team, headed up by new offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead.  Quarterback Tommy Stevens will helm the White squad, coached by assistant coach Ricky Rahne.  No pressure, guys.

Otherwise, Lancaster Online has all of the reasons to pay attention to the game.  BSD alum Ben Jones talks about the new offensive scheme, and Frank Bodani from the York Daily Record gives you 5 things to watch.

Sad, non-Blue/White Game News. Former Penn State President Bryce Jordan passed away on April 13th.  He was 91.  He served as the university president from 1983 - 1990.
