Josh Moyer writes: Bill O'Brien and his staff are holding more meetings, talking more often to players and running through more situational walkthroughs. Easy was not a term used to describe the new look.
Moyer writes: Glenn Carson, a starting middle linebacker, chatted with NittanyNation after practice Thursday. Carson started 12 games last season and finished fourth in tackles (74). He also forced two fumbles.
Moyer's position breakdown: Penn State has some interesting plans for the tight end group -- rotations, three tight-end sets, more receptions -- but that doesn't mean they're going to drive the offense.
