Linkbacker U is talking Wide Receivers, Rivalries, and the Offensive Line.

Former Lion Wideouts Trying to Make it in NFL

Was there a single Penn State fan who didn't like Jordan Norwood? One third of perhaps the greatest wide receiving corps in school history, who could forget this circus catch against Northwestern?

Maybe even Michigan for their dominance over Penn State prior to the past two seasons. But as you know, it is Michigan State that shows up on the schedule during rivalry week, and Nittany White Out ponders if perhaps Nebraska can replace Michigan State on the schedule and give Penn State a mutual rival it is so severely lacking.

Stefen Wisniewski Named to Outland Trophy Watch List

New quarterback, and two new inexperienced members of the offensive line. Smells like trouble? Not with guard Stefen Wisniewski, who is once again a member of the Outland Trophy Watch List. The award is given to the nation's best defensive tackle or offensive lineman, and Penn State is going to need Wisniewski to be just that if the team is going to have any chance of a BCS bowl.
