Is it Football Season Already?

The annual Blue-White spring football game kicks off Saturday, and while the forecast isn’t promising, there’s plenty worth watching for those willing to brave the cold, wind, and rain—or just watch from the comfort of their living room couch. Key is a quarterback battle that was never resolved last season, and which Nittany Lion fans are hoping produces at least one QB capable of a big season.

There’s also the matter of replacing Evan Royster ’10, Penn State’s career rushing leader, but folks close to the program don’t seem all that concerned. That’s because, as usual, there’s a ton of talent in the Nittany Lion backfield, and none of Royster’s understudies has generated more excitement than sophomore Silas Redd (pictured). The Altoona Mirror today profiles Redd, focusing on his surprising appreciation for running backs who, in many cases, starred in the NFL before Redd was born.

Speaking of old-school greats: for those living in Central Pa., Joe Paterno will appear tonight on WHVL’s Blue-White Tailgate Show. It’s nice to have football back.
