With just a dozen days remaining until the opening kickoff, let's catch up with one particular Penn State season-ticket holder and Juniata College grad from Joisey. Steve Koreivo had a dream: To attend at least one game involving each and every program in Division I-A (forget that Championship-Less, Going-Down-The-Bowls Subterranean Division pap, or whatever the NCAA labels it). Dream fulfilled. Though it still seems a tad scary when the fabulous Mrs. K is quoted by Vincent M. Mallozzi, "It's the only thing in life he truly loves."
Weekend after this, he plans to jump-start the season at East Stroudsburg, Stony Brook, Army and Rutgers over the four-day Labor Day weekend. Locally speaking, he tentatively lists three Penn State games and Auburn-WVU on his 23-game (so far) 2008 schedule that ends with the Dec. 20 Congressional Bowl in Washington, D.C. Steve-Oh likely won't stop there, though; after all, he crammed four bowl games in five Texas days around last New Year's. He's got it baaaaaad.
One other story of note, in case you missed it: USC is, uh, chafed. No word yet if the Trojans have gotten to the Cruex of the matter.
