Deserved an encore Matt Murschel Orlando Sentinel Joe Paterno is one of the greatest coaching legends in college football. He has done more for Penn State University in the 46 years he has been coaching than anyone else. Until this point, his programs have remained clean when others have failed, and his donations to help further education are well-documented. That's why he should have been allowed one last chance to say goodbye Saturday, to walk the sideline at Beaver Stadium and hear the cheers one last time.

Last Saturday, my family and I went to Penn State for its spring game, and I had a great time. I went with my mother, Cathy, my cousin Aaron, my uncle Charles Green and my grandmother Louann Green. They call their spring game, "The Blue/White Game," and the weather and atmosphere were amazing. I was up there with about 50 other recruits. I've seen a few of their faces before, but I didn't really recognize many of them. I didn't get to talk to any of them, but I'm more concerned with meeting and talking to some of the current players.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- There is no national championship scenario, no bowl impact. Just Penn State and Notre Dame and a last meeting -- for now -- at Beaver Stadium. And that's plenty.The implications of today's game changed dramatically last week in South Bend, Ind., where the Fighting Irish coughed up a 31-7 lead and lost to Tennessee, 35-34. When Rob Leonard's 27-yard field-goal try caromed off the rump of Tennessee's Jeremy Lincoln with four seconds remaining, so did Notre Dame's hopes for a shot at the winner of today's Florida State-Miami match in a bowl game.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- It is 3 o'clock in the morning and cars, vans, RVs and buses, everything but Conestoga wagons, are crawling bumper to bumper along fog-shrouded Route 322 when the thought occurs how wrong Karl Marx really was. Recall, he's the guy who said religion is the opium of the people.Obviously, Karl never spent any time in Central Pennsylvania in the fall taking in a Penn State football game.The masses were lined up at noon waiting for the gates of the parking lots surrounding the Beaver Stadium monolith to open.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Like clockwork, Rutgers showed up here last night to inspire another Penn State quarterback.A year after John Sacca shredded Rutgers' secondary, Kerry Collins carved up the Scarlet Knights' defense for a 31-7 Penn State win before 92,000 at Beaver Stadium.Not even a relentless, game-long rain could keep Collins from a four-touchdown pass performance in his first start since reclaiming the job this week.He not only revived Penn State's lethargic passing game, he quickly terminated a budding quarterback controversy.

Virginia (0-0) at Maryland (0-0) Site: Byrd Stadium, College Park, noonRadio: WBAL (1090 AM), WRC (980 AM)TV: Channels 45, 7Series record: Maryland leads, 60-36-2Outlook: This will be the season and ACC opener for both teams. Virginia probably will try to test Maryland's secondary, suspect last year, early. The Terps will try to run in the opening minutes so they can open up their passing attack. Maryland may be hampered by the injuries to starting OG Dave deBruin and TE Brett Stevenson, both questionable with knee injuries that have cost them substantial practice time.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- There's a sign near the overpass that leads from the Maryland football team house to the practice field.It reads: "The run-and-shoot is kind of new -- but Terps outscore the Penn State Blue." Beside the sign, these words are scrawled on a board: "Sept. 26, 1-3 Beaver Stadium. Terps win 4th quarter and Penn State War."It all sounds a little cocky, especially since Maryland has not beaten Penn State since 1961. But that's the attitude Maryland (0-3) brings into today's game against No. 9 Penn State (3-0)

Beset by injuries and uncertainty, Penn State takes a nervous first step into Big Ten history tomorrow. Joe Paterno gets sweaty palms just thinking about it."This is a much different feeling than any opener we've gone into," said Penn State's coach of the last 27 years. "We're probably more tense about this opener.This opener -- against Minnesota at sold-out Beaver Stadium -- signals the end of Penn State's 106-year tradition as an independent program. It also marks the dawning of Big Ten football in the East.

Word out of Penn State this week is that folks on campus -- and just about everyone in the small towns between Harrisburg and Pittsburgh -- are going bonkers over the big football game at the Happy Valley monolith (Beaver Stadium) Saturday. But you couldn't tell it by Nittany Lions coach Joe Paterno."To tell you the truth, I don't know anything about the frenzy," says Paterno. "I'm bleary-eyed watching tapes of Miami's last two games. I haven't been downtown, out in public or talked to anyone.
