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.

Time moves faster in the NFL. Players seem to age more rapidly and rosters turn over more quickly than in any other sport. Nowhere else is this more evident than the Steelers defense, where nine of 2011’s opening day starters are no longer with the team.
