THE NOISE engulfed Pete Massaro as he walked off the field that one last time at Beaver Stadium in November. The Penn State defensive end had that pins-and-needles feeling coursing through him. He never felt more alive on a football field. Penn State culminated a tumultuous season by pulling off a 24-21 overtime victory over eventual Big Ten champion Wisconsin, and Massaro, a Marple Newtown product, had played a part in it - along with the rest of the seniors on Penn State's team.

STATE COLLEGE - It was the third quarter. It was cold, windy, and sometimes snowy. And Bill O'Brien on the stadium microphone, imploring fans to do the wave. Such was the laid-back atmosphere of the Blue-White Game on Saturday in Beaver Stadium, in which a taut defense ended up on the right side of a complex scoring system, 67-47. Leading the way for the defense (the Blue team) was defensive lineman Austin Johnson, who notched five tackles and a pair of sacks, while defensive linemen Brad Bars and Evan Schwan had a pair of sacks.

Having watched one season of Penn State football under the direction of head coach and offensive maestro Bill O'Brien, the fans coming to Beaver Stadium for Saturday's annual Blue-White game know what to expect even if it will be presented in its most basic form. With the Big Ten Network televising the game, which marks the end of spring football practice, you can be sure O'Brien will reveal only fundamental formations on offense and vanilla packages on defense because every conference opponent will have the DVR humming.

On freshman orientation day at Penn State, Great Valley's Chris Geiss could easily skip the suggested tour around campus. His father, Robert, was a member of the school's band, and his mother, Pat, played lacrosse for the Nittany Lions. They passed their love of all that is State College along to their son. "Ever since I was born, I've gone to at least one game each season," Chris Geiss said. "It's almost like it's my second home. " In realizing one of his childhood dreams, the 6-foot-3, 190-pound senior will soon be spending ample time at Beaver Stadium.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - A snow-covered field in Centre County, especially one so near to fetid cow barns and massive Beaver Stadium, seems an odd place to honor the longtime superintendent of a golf course 150 miles away. But here, amid small fir trees on a remote corner of Penn State's vast campus, stands a small fieldstone memorial to the namesake of the surrounding Joseph E. Valentine Turfgrass Research Center. That rock, rising above the mid-January whiteness like an Alpine peak, was dug from the ground at Merion Golf Club's historic 11th hole.

Funny how nobody talks much anymore about Joe Paterno's statue. Much like that 900-pound likeness the university removed last summer from outside Beaver Stadium, the late Penn State coach's legacy once seemed destined to endure forever. Now, almost a year after Paterno's death, it is melting away rapidly, like the last vestiges of a snowfall in spring. The tumult provoked by the Jerry Sandusky scandal, the red-hot debate over Paterno's response, and the fears about Penn State football's future all have eased somewhat, even if the torment of Sandusky's child victims has not. Sandusky is in prison.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Because he is a coach, and the NFL is the "highest level of coaching," Bill O'Brien said he felt a need to check out some of the opportunities he had to return to the pros as a head coach before deciding he would remain at Penn State. However, in explaining his reasons why he stayed, O'Brien emphatically denied Monday that influential university donor Terry Pegula pledged $1.3 million to add to his contract or that he imposed any demands on acting athletic director Dave Joyner to gain more influence within the athletic department.
