Whoops.

Yes, he graduated with Arrington. After I posed that I was thinking "Was Brown on that squad?". The older I get, the more things I have to remember, the fewer I can hold onto.

I do know that Derek (now Cameron) Wake blocked 2 punts that day to help with the victory.


I was there for that one, too. Wake was a force that day. And if memory serves, Brees had three or perhaps four shots at the end zone from inside the twenty in the final moments of the game. Gut wrenching! Brees never beat the Good Guys while QBing the Boilermakers.
Yeah, well, that's like your opinion, man.

Here's a full look at what the 'Generations of Greatness' theme will feature, courtesy of Penn State Athletics:

Game Day Elements

Videoboard - The Beaver Stadium scoreboards in the North and South end zone will have a display with a vintage look and feel.
Music - The in-game music will be a variety of hits from the 1950s to today.
Cheer and Dance Teams - The Penn State cheerleaders and Lionettes will wear historic outfits dating back to the 1950s.
Honorary Captain - The honorary captain is former Nittany Lion All-America linebacker Jack Ham. He also will be recognized as a 1988 inductee of the Pro Football Hall of Fame after helping the Pittsburgh Steelers win four Super Bowls.
Blue Band - The Blue Band will perform music throughout the game from 1950s to today.
Game Program - The cover of the Beaver Stadium Pictorial will have a look similar to programs from the 1950s.
End Zones - Both end zones will be painted with blue and white diamonds dating to the 1960s.

Uniform Elements

Numbers on Helmets - The Nittany Lions had the number on the side of their helmet from 1959-61 and then again from 1967-74. A No. 42 also appeared on the side of every Penn State helmet in the season finale against Wisconsin in 2012 to honor injured senior Michael Mauti.
Block Uniform Numbers - The block uniform numbers are similar to those uniform numbers that donned the Blue & White from mid-1950s-66.
White Stripe on Sleeve - Penn State's uniform had a white stripe on the sleeve several times, including 1957-66, 1982-89 and 1992-2011.
Stripe on the Pants - The Nittany Lions had a blue stripe on their pants from 1952-68.
Striped Socks - The striped sock pays tribute to those worn on game days from 1970-72.
Gray Facemask - The gray facemask was donned by the Nittany Lions from 1959-86.
White Cleats - The white cleats were worn by the Nittany Lions in the 1979 Sugar Bowl.
Gloves - The gloves for the Indiana game will feature the Lion Shrine on the palm of the hands.
Lion Shrine - The image of Lion Shrine appears on the "home plate" of the front of the jersey. It is an original element of the "Generations of Greatness" uniform to pay homage to the Lion Shrine that was a gift from the Class of 1940.
Back Inside Collar - The back inside collar of the jersey reads "Penn State 1959" in recognition of the first Liberty Bowl game, played in Philadelphia. Penn State defeated Alabama, 7-0.
What the H... was that? Oh, Barkley!

But this is throwback week :lol:


Yes 2000, I reread the article.

"Just so we're clear, this Saturday, just so I never get asked this question again, we will line up under center, we will have four fullbacks in the game, and we will run that the entire game,"

I emailed a local columnist this past weekend because I wanted him to ask why the QB never goes under center. I am assuming JF got a lot of questions about going under center.

Good guys- 41
Bad guys- 17

Saquon runs for a buck 20 and catches 6 passes for 100 yards. He continues his march toward a Heisman and the legend of Saquon Barkley continues to beat!

Speaking of that fantastic game against Purdue, I just saw Joe Tiller died. :(

Yeah - too bad. He was a heckuva good coach.
