It is a new era for Penn State football: another new coach, and a fan base desperately trying to move on. The NCAA sanctions are, at worst, half over. It appears that Bill O’Brien accomplished more than winning 15 games in two years; otherwise James Franklin wouldn’t be the new coach.

Has Penn State solved its image problem? Some will argue Yes; see James Franklin hire.

Nevertheless, things today are better -- much better -- than they could have been.

Allen Roberts scored 15 points off the bench and Tim Frazier had a double-double with 11 points and 13 assists as Penn State toppled Duquesne 68-59 at Consol Energy Center.

Tim Frazier scored 27 points but Penn State had no answer for Talib Zanna or Lamar Patterson down the stretch and Pitt rode their inside game to a 78-69 win over Penn State at the Petersen Events Center in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

For the first time since 2006, the Panthers oldest rival came to Oakland.

Following old tradition, Pitt, once again took down that foe.

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.
