It's my pleasure to serve as a senior editor for Roar Lions Roar. I am greatly enjoying building up a brand new entity from scratch (with a ton of help from our friends at Eleven Warriors, of course) after having spent time writing for multiple team sites on SB Nation including Black Shoe Diaries, Tomahawk Nation, Land Grant Holy Land, Alligator Army, as well as the main college football hub. I also spent time on the professional side, writing about the Seattle Seahawks for Field Gulls on the SB Nation network.

Please don't hesitate to ever reach out to myself or anyone else on the masthead about improvements you think can be made to the site or any other comments you may have. Thanks for reading! Go State!

Always so negative! They were better in the App State and Pitt games then you're giving them credit for. Yeah, both teams committed a lot of stupid penalties, but they were also completely dominated for 3 quarters (App State) and 2 quarters (Pitt).

For a team as inexperienced as Penn State is, especially on defense, you can't ask for much more right at the beginning of the season. They're finding their stride, there will be bumps along the way. Enjoy the highs and accept that the mistakes might take a little time to iron out. There's only so much coaching can do when you're starting 10-11 guys on every defensive snap who weren't previously starters.
