Linkbacker-U is talking Student Sections, QB's, and Nebraska

The often times self proclaimed "best student section in the country" has a chance to start proving themselves today as tickets went on sale at 7 a.m. this morning. Can the students actually fill their section this year? You know, in time for kickoff? If you recall, only during the Ohio State and Iowa games did the student section come close to reaching capacity, and even then it took a quarter for them to leave their tailgating sites and enter the stadium.

Don't forget this new season brings in a new era for Penn State football, one that very few of the students who purchased tickets toay are probably looking forwar to. Daryll Clark's graduation means a new quarterback lining up uner center this fall. The new signal caller will be teste in a way that Clark never was, going on the roa in his secon ever start to take on the nation's top team In Alabama. Patriot News columnist Bob Flounders doesn't think Joe Paterno's choice to replace Clark will be able to duplicate the former quarterback's success.

The tough 2010 schedule Penn State has in front of them is already set. But 2011? That's a different story. Nebraska should be a competing member in Big Ten athletics in time for the start of the 2011 football season, which has many athletic directors scratching their heads as they comtemplate the best way to realign the conference and incorporate Nebraska.

With this marking the first day of ticket sales for Penn State students, take a look at the best student section that you probably have never seen before. Think "We Are Penn State" is cool? Check out the Utah State Aggie basketball fans.
