A Look Back At Our March/April 2006 Issue

March/April '06

A decade ago, Penn State fielded one of the best football teams in the nation. The 2005 Nittany Lions went 11-1, locked up the program’s first Big Ten title since 1994, won the Orange Bowl, and finished as the No. 3 team in America. Our March/April 2006 issue looked back on some of the defining moments from that team, which included a few lows (namely a controversial loss to Michigan and losing its best player, Paul Posluszny ’06, to a knee injury), but had exponentially higher highs, like the bowl win or taking down sixth-ranked Ohio State in what is considered one of the best games in Beaver Stadium history.

This issue also featured a story on Steve Jabo ’84, a vertebrate paleontologist at the National Museum of Natural History. Jabo mainly works with fossils and once was a member of a team that excavated a Tyrannosaurus rex. There’s also a story on Penn State’s gross anatomy lab, which is unique in that it let students at the College of Medicine work on whole cadavers.

Do you have a copy of the issue? If so, we’d love to see it. Feel free to post it on our Facebook wall, or send a tweet to @PennStaterMag.
