Dan Connor Returns!

Dan Connor announced yesterday that he will return to the Lions for one more year. WHEW! PSU really needed Dan to come back and play another year. His presence solidifies the entire linebacking corps. Without Dan, Sean Lee would be the most experienced LB on the field for Penn State with only one year starting. Not an ideal situation. Now, PSU can field two excellent LBs and let some of the young talent PSU has been recruiting at LB fight it out for the third spot.
Really, without Connor in the lineup PSU's defense looks skimpy near the line of scrimmage. However, with Connor he can step up and make some plays and let the young defensive line develop.
This is a very good day for the Nittany Lions!
