Missing PSU Grad Spotted at Blue-White Game

According to a friend who spoke with Onward State, Robbie McGrath was seen at a Blue-White game tailgate Saturday afternoon. She said Robbie, "was acting differently than the Robbie we know."

McGrath is a 2008 graduate of Penn State. Until this afternoon, he had been last seen on Sunday. A missing persons report has been filed with the Pittsburgh police but details of the investigation are unknown.

When he was seen for a short time near Beaver Stadium on Saturday, Robbie was wearing a white Penn State #22 jersey, a navy long-sleeve Under Armour type shirt, jeans, and aviator sunglasses. He drives a dark red 1990s Buick Century with OBX and Pittsburgh Penguins bumper stickers.

Clark Undrafted; Quarless, Shuler, Hull Land in NFL

Talk about surprises! The record-setting quarterback Darryll Clark went undrafted in 2010’s NFL Draft, but former teammates Andrew Quarless, Mickey Shuler, and Josh Hull were snagged before the seventh round came to a close. The Green Bay Packers chose Quarless with the 154th overall pick. The former Nittany Lion tight end will have ample opportunity […]

Blue Topples White in Annual Scrimmage

Spring practices came to an end this afternoon after the Penn State football team took the field in front of a crowd of 55,000 for the yearly Blue and White game. It seems like the quarterback competition, which has dominated headlines, is far from being solved.

It was Kevin Newsome who took the field with team Blue and the first team offense, while Matt McGloin started for team White. McGloin also saw time with the first team offense, but it was freshman quarterback Paul Jones who sealed the deal for the Blue team after lobbing two passes to the corner of the end zone and into the hands of wide receiver Shawney Kersey.

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.

Stay updated. Daryll Clark could be next!
