By the time a chilled autumn dawn broke yesterday in State College, the jolting sting of Penn State's last-second loss to Michigan on Saturday - in this case, literally a last-second loss - had hardened to resentment among many Nittany Lions fans. Cyberspace hummed with the fury of Penn Staters convinced that, for a second time in four seasons, the officials had stolen a Michigan Stadium victory from their Lions. "I am glad the refs learned some new and interesting ways to [cheat]

Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon said the school and the NHL were discussing bringing the Winter Classic to Michigan Stadium. Brandon said conversations about the annual outdoors showcase game were continuing Wednesday amid reports that the Detroit Red Wings would play the Toronto Maple Leafs on Jan. 1, 2013, at the Big House, which holds 110,000 for football games. The NHL said it had nothing to announce about the 2013 game. The crowd for a Michigan Stadium game would likely be the biggest: Michigan and Michigan State attracted a Guinness World Record 104,173 people for a hockey game on Dec. 11, 2010.

Michigan athletic director Bill Martin announced that West Virginia's Rich Rodriguez is the Wolverines' new head coach in an e-mail to the Associated Press yesterday. "I am thrilled to have Rich Rodriguez as Michigan's new coach," Martin wrote. "Rich brings an exciting brand of football to Michigan Stadium. We welcome the entire Rodriguez family to Ann Arbor. " Rodriguez, whose Mountaineers are preparing for the Jan. 2 Fiesta Bowl against Oklahoma, will take over from Lloyd Carr who announced his retirement Nov. 19. Carr still plans to coach Michigan in the Capital One Bowl on Jan. 1 against Florida.

Rob Swett was unabashed in his characterization of Penn State coach Joe Paterno. "A great man," the Michigan linebacker said from Ann Arbor yesterday. "Just a great man, and I mean that sincerely. " Sometimes, though, you have to say no even to the great ones. Which is what happened three years ago when Swett, then a heavily recruited 18-year-old from Central Bucks West High School, sat on the living room sofa alongside Paterno in his parents' Chalfont home. It was a Tuesday, two days after Swett had made a commitment to attend Michigan.

Martin, 69, will step down effective Sept. 4, 2010, the school said yesterday. Martin, a former president of the United States Sailing Association, became director of athletics at Michigan in 2000 on an interim basis.

A year ago, caution got the best of Joe Paterno and Penn State in the Michigan game. The Nittany Lions kept going up the middle, kept going nowhere, and kept stewing over their lost Rose Bowl chance. Live and learn. Not this time. When a field goal would have done, third-ranked Penn State went for it all yesterday and got it when Bobby Engram pulled in a 16-yard touchdown pass from Kerry Collins with 2 minutes, 53 seconds remaining. The play gave the Nittany Lions a pulsating 31-24 win over Michigan before 106,832 at Michigan Stadium.

No, Joe Paterno insisted yesterday, he doesn't dwell on any bad luck Penn State may have experienced at Michigan Stadium in its last five games there, all defeats. But there are signs the 82-year-old coach hasn't forgotten about his team's misfortunes there, either. On Saturday, the 13th-ranked Nittany Lions will be seeking their first victory over Michigan at the Big House since 1996. They snapped an overall nine-game losing streak in games against the Wolverines with a 46-17 victory last year at Beaver Stadium.

Things fell into place just as Bill McCartney always had hoped they would. The Colorado coach anticipated that one day he'd bring his team into Michigan Stadium, a place where he had spent a lot of time as a UM assistant coach, to play in front of an overflow crowd against the Wolverines. McCartney certainly knew that the Wolverines rarely field anything but an imposing team, so his dream did not include returning only to be routed in front of his mentor, Bo Schembechler. He wanted a shot to win in front of his friends, family and mentor.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - The previously dissatisfied Michigan fans had nothing to boo about Saturday night, thanks in large part to the inability of the Penn State offense to move the football in the second half. The hapless Nittany Lions saw their offense disappear after halftime, contributing not a single point. The Wolverines capitalized and rode three field goals by Matt Wile for an 18-13 victory and an end to their three-game losing streak before a rocking throng of 113,085 at Michigan Stadium.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Sold-out Beaver Stadium was a sea of white and an ocean of noise for more than four hours until Bill Belton's touchdown run in quadruple overtime gave Penn State a 43-40 win over Michigan last October and touched off a roar that would have drowned out a jet engine. Last year's game might have been a seminal moment in the career of Christian Hackenberg, who led the Nittany Lions 80 yards in the final 50 seconds of regulation to the tying touchdown. It also reminded fans how much they would miss wide receiver Allen Robinson after he was gone which, as it turned out, was shortly after the season ended.

SINCE 1978, Michigan and Notre Dame have played 30 times. Or every year except for six. The last season they didn't meet was 2001. That will change after the Wolverines visit South Bend on Saturday. It's the last scheduled matchup for the foreseeable future. In 2007 the schools, which are separated by 175 miles, agreed to play annually through 2031. Then 2 years ago, ND chose to end the series because it had agreed to start playing fives games each season against teams from the ACC, which it was joining for most other sports while remaining a football independent.

Joe Paterno had spent the last seven weeks wondering whether Penn State could handle being in a tough football game. So when Michigan took the opening kickoff yesterday, drove 70 yards, and scored a touchdown less than four minutes into the game with most of the 110,377 on its home field screaming at the top of its lungs, Paterno could see whether his players would show the toughness he desired. A little more than three hours later, the Nittany Lions' head coach, smiling as he wiped the rain off his glasses for the umpteenth time, had his answer.

Tate Forcier made the long journey from the sunshine of San Diego to the chill of Ann Arbor seeking to make an impact on Michigan football as a true freshman quarterback. What he achieved in the first five weeks of the season put him squarely on a path tread by Wolverines legends at the position, and in record time. To review: Forcier brought the Wolverines back in the fourth quarter of their second and fourth games, throwing the winning touchdown passes late in victories over Notre Dame and Indiana.
