The Nittany Lions coach released the depth chart Tuesday for Saturday's season opener against Kent State at Beaver Stadium. Of the 22 positions on offense and defense, 17 were manned by either holdovers or players who have started before. Five spots where players either graduated or left for the NFL were filled with first-time starters, including a pair of redshirt freshmen.

Temple released its first football depth chart heading into Friday's opener at Lincoln Financial Field against Army and the biggest surprise came at wide receiver. This is among the most competitive positions on the team and it wouldn't be surprising if six or more receivers see action in the game. Still, last year's leading returning receiver, redshirt sophomore Ventell Bryant, was listed on the second team. The first-team receivers were redshirt sophomore Marshall Ellick, redshirt junior Keith Kirkwood and redshirt sophomore Brodrick Yancy.

Entering training camp, Temple appeared to have some questions about its secondary. But during the early portion of practice, coach Matt Rhule seems pleased with the play of his defensive backs, especially his safeties. "The safeties are playing at a high level," Rhule said on Friday after the first of two steamy practices. One of the big changes was moving junior Sean Chandler from cornerback to safety in an attempt to allow him to make even more big plays. Known as "Champ," Chandler made plenty of big plays at corner, with four interceptions, two returned for touchdowns, last year.

Temple's Cherry and White Day scrimmage was not exactly an offensive masterpiece, but it was productive as far as coach Al Golden was concerned. Sophomore Brandon McManus converted a 51-yard field goal on the final play of the first quarter for the only points as White shut out Cherry, 3-0, Saturday before 4,400 fans at Temple. "We got a lot of work done today," Golden said on Saturday. "That was the most we've worked this spring. We have one more scrimmage on Thursday. I'm just trying to get them to understand how long they have to maintain their focus on game day. " A lot of attention focused on the quarterbacks.
