The football office at Penn State is in shambles when I arrive on May 19.

Coach Paterno's secretary wears a dust mask as she types a letter. Receptionist Mel Capobianco apologizes for the mess.

“They’re tearing up the carpet, painting. We’re getting all new furniture,” she says.

I point to one of the world’s longest sectional sofas and ask if this is the new stuff.

“No, that’s the old stuff,” she says smiling.

Blue-White weekend is just around the corner, which means football season is closer than we think. The new season brings a number of changes to Happy Valley, most of which come on the offensive side of the ball. Christian Hackenberg decided to forego his senior season of eligibility, meaning there will be a new quarterback taking snaps at the start of the season. Luckily, his job will be made easier by the presence of Saquon Barkley and Miles Sanders -- a dynamic tandem that could prove to be dominant.
