CHICAGO — There has been some speculation at the Big Ten media days about the possibility of Penn State sporting a different look when it takes the field this season.
Probably nothing along the lines of Oregon. At least not for now. But maybe change, no matter how minor, is appropriate. Because, let's face it, the Nittany Lions have had the plainest look for the longest time. And that somehow always seemed appropriate, too. Perhaps not anymore.
It's likely too late for Nike to come up with anything too elaborate. But at the very least, perhaps the players' names could actually, finally, become a part of the uniform. That's pretty much been the speculation.
