Around the Interwebs: Penn State Football Links for 3/4/2009

  • There were some things during the 2008 season that were just too easy for opposing offenses to take advantage of. This must stop. Now. [Zombie Nation]
  • The breakdown of 2010 recruiting class continues this week with a look at a position that had been relatively ignored for that past few years, the wide receivers. Think that had anything to do with these guys? [Black Shoe Diaries]
  • Penn State has released its first roster for 2009. Looks like a few underclassmen were just itching for a few seniors to leave. Ah, the ancient art of number grabbing. Though many focus on Navorro Bowman dropping 18 and picking up LaVar's #11, I look further down the list at two young linebackers. Michael Zordich (31) and Michael Yancich (33) both, I believe, redshirt freshman have taken on numbers that have been pretty good for Penn State LBs in the past. Andre Collins, Shane Conlan, and Paul Posluszny all put on the #31. Jack Ham wore #33.[Zombie Nation & Nittany Anthology]
  • Frank Bodani believes the Nittany Lions have adapted a new recruiting strategy, one that may pay off in the long run. [York Daily Record]
  • Todd Sponsler wants you to vote in round three of the collegiate football stadium tournament. Beaver Stadium is challenging Ben Hill Griffin Stadium (Florida). As of 10:45 AM today, The Beav held a 14% lead (57-43) on "The Swamp". Voting ends March 6th. [50-Yard Lion]
  • Scott Brown has chronicled the dwindling stars and dropping stocks of former Nittany Lions Aaron Maybin and Maurice Evans. At separate points in the past 18 months each were considered first round NFL talent. That certainly isn't the case for Evans anymore and Maybin is losing his shine every day. [Pittsburgh Tribune-Review]
  • JB would like to point out that, when it comes to springtime and college football, no news really is good news. [There is No Name on My Jersey]
  • Christopher Morelli takes a look at Penn State and college football had the Nittany Lions declined the Big Ten Conference and remain independent. [Morelli OnLion]
  • Two former Nittany Lion RBs have been nominated for admission to the college football hall of fame. D.J. Dozier and Curt Warner are both Penn State legends and now may get their due in all of college football. Dozier lead the team in rushing for four consecutive seasons and helped lead the 1986 squad to a perfect 12-0 record and a national title. Warner was a first team All-American in 1981 and the Most Outstanding Player in two Fiesta Bowls plus was an important cog in the 1982 national championship team. [Nittanydelphia]
  • Previously Michael Abromowitz sat down with former Penn State OT Gerald Cadogan. Now he has asked a few questions with former Nittany Lion safety, and fan favorite, Anthony Scirrotto. [The Football Expert]
