Quarterback depth a concern

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Well, the weather in Happy Valley for today's Blue-White is delightful, but Penn State's quarterback situation could turn frightful if Daryll Clark gets hurt. The senior has been wearing a red jersey this spring and did so in today's game. Still, Clark has to be careful this summer and during preseason if the team hopes to avoid having to insert true freshman Kevin Newsome into the fire.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Well, the weather in Happy Valley for today's Blue-White is delightful, but Penn State's quarterback situation could turn frightful if Daryll Clark gets hurt. The senior has been wearing a red jersey this spring and did so in today's game. Still, Clark has to be careful this summer and during preseason if the team hopes to avoid having to insert true freshman Kevin Newsome into the fire.

Clark has also vowed to take it easy when he's running the ball. We'll see if he can do that. He couldn't last season and it cost the Lions in their loss to Iowa.

We'll learn a lot more about this team during today's game. I'll be back with updates.
