I prefer to be polite, so I won't say Scientific Method and Mainstream Medicine were wrong. Instead, I'll say they were cautious, thorough, and chose to ignore a friend of mine, Common Sense, and in the process have somehow managed to baffle him.

NOCKAMIXON TWSP - Northwestern first-year head football coach Josh Snyder figured his club would endure some growing pains along the way this season. Last night, he found out how quickly those pains could surface.

In the Colonial League and season opener for both clubs, the Tigers were ambushed by a 28-0 first-half onslaught from Palisades and they couldn't recover as they went on to suffer a 41-0 defeat.

Today begins the third year of the Brian Kelly era at Notre Dame and the school's 125th season of college football. This is also the year we learn if Kelly is the man for the job or just another in a list of failed hires.

After two very unimpressive 8-5 seasons it is time for Kelly to make his mark. Is he better than the three before him - Weis, Willingham and Davie?

Quick, Marian down Indians

Nobody knows the importance of linemen more than a quarterback.

But with Marian's Corey Quick, he doesn't only appreciate the play of his teammates in the trenches, he also lives it.

The Colts' signal-caller threw a pair of second-half touchdowns and also ran for a score Friday night to lead his team to a 34-10 victory over host Lehighton in both team's season opener. But it was also his play on the defensive line that helped secure the win.

One thing is for sure heading into Penn State's first game of the season against Ohio this afternoon (12 noon on ESPN).

That is the Bobcats have not seen much tape on starting running back Bill Belton, starting wide receiver Allen Robinson, or much of any of what will be a totally different offense in 2012, quite literally a different offense.

Leading rusher from a year ago Silas Redd is at USC and leading wide receiver Justin Brown is playing for the Sooners in Norman, OK.

Bombers fall to ND

The lack of an offense early and turning the ball over six times kept Palmerton from getting off on the right foot on Friday night.

Notre Dame of Green Pond capitalized on a couple of breaks and rolled to a 26-6 victory over the Blue Bombers in the Colonial League opener for both.

The Crusaders scored two TDs in the first quarter and answered the bell with another at the start of the second half and the Bombers never recovered.

September 1, 1979 Mike Tracy carries 27 times for 209 yards and a pair of touchdowns to help Marian ruin Blue Mountain's stadium debut with a 40-6 rout. Tracy breaks free for long scoring runs of 71 and 97 yards. The Colts, coached by Stan Dick (Dakosty), open the scoring when Kory Bates intercepts a pass and returns it 28 yards for a touchdown. Mark Stelmack adds two TD runs while Pete Bumbulsky finishes the onslaught with a 45-yard dash to the end zone.

Annually, thousands of Pennsylvanians travel to hunt big game and Pennsylvania Game Commission executive director Carl Roe said that in an effort to prevent the introduction of Chronic Wasting Disease into the Commonwealth, hunters are prohibited from importing specific carcass parts from 21 states and two Canadian provinces from members of the deer family, including mule deer, elk and moose.

Trail cams are a great option for keeping track of the deer and other game visiting a person’s hunting area.

With the archery deer season rapidly approaching, many hunters are busy scouting for locations to hang their treestands, and one tool that's helping them keep tabs on the whitetails in their favorite hunting areas – even when they aren't there – is the trail camera.
