Saturday was a beautiful day in Happy Valley. Over 105,000 fans showed up to catch a glimpse of the new look Nittany Lions. We arrived in State College and the masses had already invaded the tailgating area around beaver stadium. The morning air had a small brisk chill but the day would heat up very quick. (If you haven't experienced happy valley on game day it is one thing that any college football fan must do before you die!) As I made my way around the tailgating area the whispers of concerns with all that the lions have lost from a year ago loomed. Largest and most talked about was how you replace possibly the three best receivers to be on one team in recent college history. No one seemed to have an answer. As I made my way from my tailgating area to the stadium the anticipation grew with every step closer. The game started and the crowd was loud and the questions that loomed in the air from the morning tailgate were answered by Chaz Powell and Derek Moye. The two receivers were two keys in Daryll Clark's best passing game in his PSU career. The help a PSU offense put up 31 points in the first half. Although the kicking game lacked and the offense couldn't find the end zone in the second half the question on who would step up at the WR position was answered. Look for them to step forward as leaders and be a crucial part of this years team.
