The More You Know. It's back!

"The More You Know" is an almost daily antidote for all Penn State faithful regarding their upcoming bout with the the Texas A&M Aggies. As Confucius says, "In order to kill you enemies, you must learn to love them"...or something like that.

I bet you didn't know? That this is by far the biggest running back PSU has faced all season. Jorvorskie Lane, named by two parents who love the ESPN analysit known as "Jaws" but are also very poor at spelling, weighs in at 293 pounds. Royster and Kinlaw combined weight about as much as this guys face.

"Jorvorskie Lane, excited to be here since 2004"

He totaled 746 yards this season and somehow manged to get his fat fingers around 9 passes for another 82 yards of positive gain. Lets break it down.

-In A&M's seven wins, they've managed to get this kid the pigskin. He bowling-balled his way to an average of 85 yards on 17 carries.

-In the five losses? Down to 30 yards on just 7 carries...this includes a strange and very embarassing loss to the 2007 Miami Hurricanes where he managed just 2 yards on 2 carries.

I don't think these stats allow us to conclude on anything, but then again this segment isn't called "The More You Can Conclude", it's called "The More You Know", and I'm simply telling you what you already knew: that teams run for more yards when they win, usually.
