Penn State Football Morning Briefing: Nittany Lions No. 46 in Power Index, Adam Breneman Working Hard and Other News


Monday’s Penn State news is a bit on the light end, likely due to the holiday weekend. ESPN ranked the Nittany Lions No. 46 in the preseason power index for the 2014 season. Also, tight end Adam Breneman is profiled as he looks to become a more complete tight end this season. Elsewhere, there’s an interesting recruiting story about Penn State Hall of Fame linebacker Shane Conlan, “Success With Honor” will continue under James Franklin and Tim Tolley of Bleacher Report discusses some of the things there are hindering the flexibility of the Penn State program.
