Over on GoPSUsports.com there's an article about how the team finished, statistically. Not surprising, the defense had some good numbers (top 15 in all major categories) - but what really surprised me was this...

In the individual NCAA statistics, sophomore placekicker Kevin Kelly (Langhorne, Pa.) was tied for second nationally in field goals, making 22 for a 1.69 per game average. Kelly led the Big Ten in field goals and kick scoring and was tied with Wisconsin running back P.J. Hill for the conference overall scoring lead at 7.4 ppg. Kelly’s 22 field goals tied Matt Bahr’s school record from 1978 and his 34 field goal attempts broke the PSU season mark of 33 by Chris Bahr in 1975.

Maybe we just made the kid kick too many times; we were so disappointed in him - and yet, his final "numbers" (not percentage) makes him a top scorer.
