Stephon Morris had his mind pretty close to made up. "I'm very passionate about football. I love this game," Morris said. "But last year I didn't, after the season, I really didn't have...I don't know. It just wasn't there. I wasn't going to be here."

When Penn State travels to face Virginia on Saturday, a former walk-on quarterback will lineup behind center and likely hand off to a former walk-on running back. And if Penn State's season opener against Ohio was any indication, a former walk-on tight end could be getting some looks in the passing game, too.

With that in mind, coach Bill O'Brien thinks it's probably time to change their moniker.

In the continuing fallout from the shocking child sex abuse scandal at Penn State, it seems insensitive to call any challenges the Nittany Lions will face between the lines this season "problems."

Nevertheless, Penn State will have to sort out a number of depth issues if it's to finish atop the Big Ten Leaders Division in 2012.

When 6-foot-5 former Penn State volleyball star Blair Brown went club-hopping a while back with 6-4 Nebraska All-American Brooke Delano and three other very tall young women, they weren’t exactly shy about their height.

All five wore three-inch heels.


“We would have worn six-inch heels if we had them,” Delano said with a laugh. “We got some comments about our long legs, and we loved it.”
