Blue Wins Rain-Soaked Blue-White Game 10-0

In maybe the most gruesome game of football Beaver Stadium has seen since “6-4“, the Blue team defeated the White Team in a rain-shortened Blue-White Game by a score of 10-0.

The ugliness started right from the opening snap as Rob Bolden threw an interception to Mike Wallace on a severely underthrown ball. Although all reports coming out of camp this spring spoke of Bolden being more comfortable with the offense than ever before, he put up a goose egg in the completion column, missing on all six of his attempts.

Penn State’s other 2010 starter, Matt McGloin, fumbled his first snap of the game, but recovered the ball and his game as he led the Blue team to both of their scoring drives, one that ended with an Evan Lewis 20-yard field goal and one that ended with a 17-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Moseby-Felder in the corner of the endzone.

Kevin Newsome and Paul Jones both got time in with the White team, but did not do anything special. McGloin’s 5-for-10, 109-yard performance in the conditions was definitely the best of the QB’s, but remember that Penn State’s top four in the secondary (Lynn, Sukay, Astorino and Morris) were out for today’s game.

The offensive line was not the complete mess I was expecting, but it can definitely still use some work opening up holes for any of the four running backs that saw work today. Brandon Beachum, who tore his ACL in 2009 and redshirted last season, had 24 yards on six carries, and presumptive first-stringer Silas Redd had 17 yards on 7 carries. Stephfon Green added 13 yards while half-man, half-bull Curtis Dukes had 15 yards on three carries.

As I saw in a tweet during the game, the rain was the best defender on Saturday, but an honorable mention goes to Khairi Fortt who wore Lavar Arrington’s former number well, ending the day with five tackles.

Thankfully, there were only about 5,000 (if that) to watch the slopfest that took place on Saturday. While spring scrimmages are always fun, this game was for show and was never meant to answer any questions. This only makes the wait for summer camp seem that much longer.
