The Nittany Lions are gearing up for their Big Ten and season opener. A lot of eyes will be on this team as both polls still have Penn State in the top ten. A lot of focus will be on the offense and their new leader who is taking charge.
Kirk Ciarrocca has already made a big impression on his group. The former Minnesota Offensive Coordinator has brought his style to Central Pennsylvania and its really paying off. He takes over a group that was one of the best in the Big Ten and the country in 2019. A lot of those same guys will be back giving this group and new coach a added boost.
One of Ciarrocca’s big sticking points has been with the offensive line, a group that he’s going to rely upon.
“I would say its mostly in the expectation. He expects a lot of us, especially on the offensive line. He has high expectations for us, and he expects us to drive the offense. He wants perfection. He wants details to be focused on and he wants perfection at all times.”
Opening day for the Nittany Lions will be on October 24th at Indiana.
