Having relinquished Samuel Ryder's gold chalice for the first lime in four years, the vanquished "visitors returned on the Concorde Monday morning less concerned \vith America's stunning final-day onslaught than they were outraged with the spontaneous combustion of emotions the U.S. displayed on the 17th green. It was evident what angle was being hammered home by the Fleet Street crew and it's not going to die until the teams square off again at the Belfry in two years. ¦ With all the pomp and ceremony that attends the Ryder Cup, it took some time until the Europeans reached the interview room Sunday.

This Penn State more entertaining than previous Joe Paterno squads by Ray Parrillo September 26, 1999 Knight Ridder Tribune PHILADELPHIA - The uniforms are I still bland as the walls of a hospital ward, and if you turned the clock back a generation, you'd still see most of the same coaches nervously pacing the sideline. Rest assured, though, this has been a very different kind of Penn State football team so far this season. , In their finest hours under coach Joe iPaterno, the Nittany Lions bludgeoned teams with a relentless running attack .centered on a workhorse tailback who followed the lead of a powerful offensive line. They had the controls in the hands of one quarterback. They recused to give opponents openings by making mistakes. Their defense rarely gave up big plays. None of which characterizes the way these Nittany Lions have built a 5-0 record and positioned themselves as the No. 2 team in the nation in the minds of the media and coaches who vote in the polls.

Guys like Casey, whose feet always seem to be dancing on hot coals, whose amazing athleticism inspires him to lake risks, lend to make old Joe a bit nervous. So on a glistening afternoon as 96,416 filed out of Beaver Stadium downright dazzled by the entertaining performance Casey had put on for them, Paterno was quick to serve up a warning. "We know what we've got in Casey," Paierno said. "He's going to make big plays, and other times you're going to pay the price. You've got to live wit...

Nancy Eaton, the Dean of University Libraries for Penn State, and Behrend's Provost and Dean.

The music alone was sufficiently entertaining, but when paired with the insight of the musicia...
