Navorro Bowman Heading West to 49ers

That makes three! Last night, legendary linebacker and head coach of the San Fransisco 49ers selected Navorro Bowman 91st overall in the third round. Bowman registered 93 tackles during the 2009 season while battling a groin injury.

The linebacker should fit in well with the 49ers’ defensive scheme, but off-the-field issues weigh on the former Nittany Lion– a possible reason why he wasn’t selected sooner. Bowman was  suspended for two games in 2008 for fighting.

Bowman knows those problems are in the past. “I know what type of person I am. I’ve had so many teammates that love playing with me and love me being part of a team. I’m glad the 49ers see that I’m a good guy, and I bring a positive attitude,” Bowman told Mercury News.

Wrestlers Rebound with a Sweep in Michigan

Well that’s more like it. After getting trounced by Iowa last weekend, which snapped a 13-match winning streak, the Nittany Lion wrestlers rallied back with two convincing victories over Michigan State and Michigan this weekend. The first stop of the road trip was in Lansing Friday night where they mauled the Spartans 30-9. Then they headed back to Ann Arbor for a 28-13 beating of the Wolverines.
