JoePa's Finest: The 10 Best Nittany Lions of the Decade

The "aught" decade has been nothing short of a roller coaster for Penn State fans.

It began rather traumatically in 2000, when fans dealt with the first losing season under Paterno since 1988. The real shock, though, was that the losing didn’t stop, as Penn State suffered sub-.500 marks in four of the decade’s first five seasons.

Following JoePa’s stern resistance to calls for his retirement, the team rebounded to win two Big Ten championships in the second half of the decade.

These are the players who I feel had the best careers in their years at Penn State. What they went on to accomplish—or not accomplish—in the pros was not taken into account.

Enjoy!
