Blue-White wrap-up

Penn State's spring practice ended yesterday with the annual Blue-White scrimmage. White, by the way, won, 21-16.

This morning's story in the newspaper detailed the plight of linebacker Navorro Bowman, who didn't play yesterday and will likely be suspended through the summer after he failed two random drug tests administered by the team. Mike Mauti, meanwhile, is being touted as the next great linebacker at Linebacker U. Surprisingly, Joe Paterno is the one trumpeting his arrival. We also got our first real glimpse of freshman quarterback Kevin Newsome. He looked green, but there is obvious potential.

Here are some other observations during the first half. And here were the first team offense and defense, according to yesterday's scrimmage. Several regular starters were missing, so the lineup isn't a true indication of who is starting.
