This month’s spring drills for the Penn State Nittany Lions will be an important one. A promising recruiting class and strong returning starters provide hope for year three of the James Franklin era; however, there are still plenty of question marks.

Now that national signing day has passed, James Franklin is hard at work trying to fix Penn State's offensive line issues.

The Penn State Nittany Lions have seen more turnover in the past four years than they saw in the 45 years prior.

Consequently, the football team has not reached nine wins or more since 2011, the last year Joe Paterno coached.

The 2015 Pitt Panthers were an improved football team, but hardly a great one. Much of the praise heaped upon Pat Narduzzi and his staff for Pitt’s 8-4 regular season comes in light of extremely low expectations given the program's recent past.

On the other end of the state, the Temple Owls have earned a No. 20 AP ranking and an East Division title in the American Athletic Conference with a 10-2 record.

Expectations are high for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2016. A revamped defensive line, featuring two of the league's best ends in Cameron Heyward and Stephon Tuitt, is one of the main reasons why.
Feature TwoPure Steel
The Steelers opened the preseason as the odd-on favorite in the AFC North, but injuries and suspensions could open the door for a still-talented Bengals team and Ravens squad looking to rebound from a disappointing 2015.

Pittsburgh Penguins’ head coach Mike Sullivan has obviously spoken several very kind words about his championship hockey team. Sullivan has complimented his team’s speed, chemistry, and teamwork. But perhaps more than anything else, Sullivan complimented their toughness.
