All is Well in Happy Valley

On this snowy day here in Connecticut, with school closed, I haven't really had much to do. While I probably should have been working harder on my paper about Spartacus, Penn State hasn't been far from my mind. Well it never really is but today especially. 10-1, Big Ten champs, Orange Bowl bound and the recruits are beginning to flock to Happy Valley. Navarro Bowman, a blue chip LB from Maryland, verballed yesterday. One or two more blue chippers may verbal by the end of the weekend. Vidal Hazelton, one of the top recruits in the country, had PSU crossed off his list three months ago. Now it's down to PSU and USC for his services. It's just like the good 'ol days again. Thankfully, unlike 2002, the talent and coaching is there to make seasons like this the norm, not the exception. I'm glad that the rest of the Big Eleven feels that PSU will be back to mediocrity next season. It will just the fuel the fire just like in 2005. Penn State is back and we're here to stay.

This time last year, "all is well" was a knock by some PSU fans towards others who were the thought were contented with losing. Now all is well and it feels darn good.
