Everybody except possibly head coach Joe Paterno wants revenge for last year’s last second loss to Michigan. Joe just wants to win. Or so he says, anyhow. Today, we’ll look at the possibilities of that happening this Saturday at Beaver Stadium.
Of one thing you can be assured: Beaver Stadium will be rocking. A “white-out” declaration ensures that the student section will be a sea of white and a Friday night pep rally at Rec Hall will work them to a preliminary frenzy, which will be augmented by the bars of State College. A “Paternoville” tent city will appear outside the gates of the stadium, although the administration recently ruled that tents would not be pitched until Thursday morning. (I guess the party atmosphere that prevailed at last year’s Paternoville was too much for them.) When game time arrives, Beaver Stadium will be loud, proud, and ready.
