Penn State opens the 2007 College Football season on September 1st, by hosting the golden panthers of florida international. The former Sunblazers (changed to golden panthers in 1987) don uniforms of blue and old gold - I'll tell you now, you just need to retire all of your clothing, jewelry and accessories (check the hinges of your sunglasses please) that feature any gold, tan, or yellowish hue this season - we're playing a lot of _____ and yellow teams this season.
The panthers hail from the Miami area and call "university park" home - wait a minute... 1987, change the mascot to a mountain lion and ...
There isn't much to report on the football front regarding the panthers. Sadly, their most notorious moment as a team has nothing to do with football.
However, fiu, will enter Happy Valley with some experience at running back and a few returning seniors on defense.
As far as the tailgating goes, were looking forward to a great season - we've been planning some great themes and menus for the home games. To kick off the season we've planned...
Mediterranean Sea Food, of course! We'll have some grilled shrimp and complimentary sides (you look really tall today) including (but, certainly not limited to) white bean and rosemary dip, homemade hummus, tapenade, fresh fruit and cake!
Gametime is 12pm - and parking lots open at 7am - we'll be there when they open the gates and, as usual, we're planning on parking in Lot 13 - the parking maps have changed again this year - we expect to park in the section of the lot closer to the stadium - look for the PSU flag (ha ha ha ha)- for more detailed directions, email us for cell phone numbers.
Currently, Accuweather's forecast is promising - but after last year's opening game, we've learned to be ready for ANYTHING!
All are welcome - Let us know if you'll be attending so we can plan accordingly.
2 the Lion!
