Entering his second season as Penn State's head coach, Cael Sanderson expects nothing less than a national title from his wrestlers.
"As a team we are thinking national championship," said Sanderson, whose team is ranked sixth in the country by USA Today and seventh by InterMat.
Does it get any more dramatic than that?
After falling behind 21-0 in the 2nd quarter, head coach Joe Paterno rallied his troops to post 35 unanswered points in the last 30 minutes and 4 seconds of the game. Then his players hoisted him high above the Beaver Stadium field to celebrate the legend's 400th career victory as time expired.
With Joe Paterno just one win shy of 400 career victories, Onward State takes a look back at the legend's impressive resume with his top ten wins of all time.
Talk about a splash of refreshment.
The Nittany Lions returned to .500 (in the Big Ten) Saturday evening after downing the Michigan Wolverines in front of 108,539 screaming Beaver Stadium fans 41-31. Meanwhile, fifth-year senior Evan Royster rushed his way into Penn State lore, becoming Penn State's all-time leading rusher.
Get used to hearing his name. As a quarterback, the kid has rushed for a nation-high 1,096 yards this season and gotten 9 touchdowns, making a serious run at the Heisman trophy. Rich Rodriguez and his Wolverines will stroll into Beaver Stadium without ever having beaten a Penn State team, but the dreadlocks himself (Robinson) will be looking to change that fate.
