Penn State offensive revival wound through Texas FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Penn State’s offense had often been compared to the blue-and-white uniforms that the Nittany Lions wear—simple, plain and predictable. That’s no longer the case, and coach Joe Patemo & Co. credit Texas, in part, for helping to open up their offensive attack. Months before the season started, Patemo sent his assistants to meet their counterparts at Texas to catch a glimpse of the Longhorns’ potent attack during spring practice. The hope was that the assistants could gather some tips to help retool Penn State’s offense. “It worked out the way we thought,” Penn State offensive coordinator Galen Hall said Thursday about the Texas trip. “It helped us in the fact that we were headed in the right direction offensively.” And then some. Penn State finished near the bottom in total offense in 2004; now the Nittany Lions are scoring 36 points a game behind athletic quarterback Michael Robinson, who can beat opponents with his arm and legs. Robinson sure sounds a lot like Texas’ mobile signal-caller Vince Young, and I {ail said that’s part of the reason why Penn State coaches visited the Longhorns. “We looked around at college football teams who had a similar style quarterback that we thought Michael could be," I tall said at a news conference in Fort Lauderdale. The learnt preparing to play Florida State in the Orange Bowl next week. Robinson, a fifth-year senior and the team’s unquestioned leader, has excelled in his first and only season as the full-time starter, having rushed for 11 touchdowns and passed for 16. Three-, four- and even five-receiver sets have become more prevalent, though Robinson did struggle a little in the season’s first two games. “As we got the timing down, we looked a lot better,” he said. Getting some speedy play-makers didn’t hurt, either. I ligh-ly touted freshman Derrick Williams and Justin King injected speed to give Patemo a dimension on offense that had been sorely lacking. HORNS CONTINUED FROM Page SA ‘Old Man’ provides leadership, passion dugouts had him thinking of football again. “My passion for football exceeds baseball,” Cosby said. “It just took me (a few) years to figure that out.” He watched Texas games on TV and missed not playing. He stayed in touch with Johnson, who was from Waco. He was getting ready to report to spring training last year when he realized “my heart just wasn’t there.” Cosby negotiated a release from the Angels — he had to SAINTS__ CONTINUED FROM Page 8A Long-term future still cloudy Benson said the Saints’ return would pump a projected $550 million in economic benefits back into the state. “In the spirit of the rebuilding of New Orleans, we are fully committed to making the Saints better than ever,” he said during a press conference in Metairie before flying to San Antonio. The Saints moved their training camp to San Antonio after Katrina devastated New Orleans on Aug. 29, just before the start of the season. Then they played one “home” game in New Jersey, three in San Antonio and four in Baton Rouge, La. The Saints averaged about 40,000 fans at LSU’s Tiger Stadium and more than 60,000 at the Alani-odome, while stumbling to a 3-12 record. They finish the season Sunday at Tampa Bay. New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, who criticized Benson give some of his money back — and inquired with Texas about re-signing with the Longhorns. He never enrolled in 2001 and returned to football as a college freshman. At 23, he’s older than some of the seniors on the team. “They definitely call me Old Man,” Cosby said. Coach Mack Brown was happy to bring an emotionally mature player to a receiving corps that had underachieved in 2004. “His maturity has made him a faster learner,” Brown said. “When he quit baseball, he was in great shape. He was in summer school and was able to be out there with the guys.” in October when San Antonio officials said they were working with the owner to keep the Saints in Texas, offered a measured response to the news that the team would return. “After 30-plus years of supporting the Saints, it is somewhat encouraging that the Saints will play the next season in our city and state,” Nagin said. “We are happy that New Orleanians, who have lost so much, will have an NFL team next season to call their own.... We look forward to the day when the Saints organization will fully commit to this community and be a vital part of our recovery for many years to come.” Asked whether Benson was reluctant to return to Louisiana amid suspicions he really wanted to move the team from New Orleans, Tagliabue said: "Like everybody else, Mr. Benson has been dealing with things he felt he never would have to deal with. I le’s been looking at all alternatives, both pros and cons, short-term and long-term.” CREDIT DOESN T MATTER    CREDIT    DOESN    T    MATTER    Lmmmm^    CREDIT    DOESNT    MATTER CALL NOW!
