Today's football game at Beaver Stadium between the Penn State Nittany Lions (1-2) and the Navy Midshipmen (0-2) can be classified as many things. It was a really weird game, but more than any other statistics or career accomplishments, today's contest will be remembered as the day Bill O'Brien recorded his first win as Penn State's head coach.
Although estimates vary -- some as low as 350 and others as high as 1000 people -- Penn State alumni showed up Monday morning on the steps of Old Main to voice their displeasure for, well, pretty much everyone.
Good afternoon from Beaver Stadium where the Penn State Nittany Lions (0-2) are set to take on the Navy Midshipmen (0-1). The Midshipmen are led by Ken Niumatalolo who is in his fifth year as head coach of the program. Today will be Bill O'Brien's third attempt at his first win after dropping games to Ohio and Virginia. Several service branches of the military will be honored as part of Military Appreciation Day.

Joe Posnanski, the author of the Joe Paterno biography "Paterno," spoke to a packed crowd in Alumni Hall at the HUB on Friday afternoon. He gave an in-depth look about his time with the late head coach and offered his opinions about the Freeh Report and criticisms of his book.
