I can guarantee that our players are going to work really hard and that we want to be in a position to win. And we want to have the right mindset to know that we trained hard enough that we feel that we deserve to win. But, there's no guarantee that you're going to win. There are certain variables that are out of your control — injuries, kids just not being competitive enough or not focused enough. That's one of the things that's tough about recruiting. If you told people the truth, then you feel like at least you've told them what it's going to be like when they get here. We've had some examples of players who came to Penn State because we were good, not because they wanted to be good.
Parade Order is the feature of the drumline's post-game performance, known as "Corner" or "Drumline Corner," which used to occur in the northwest corner of the stadium, but in recent years is performed on the 50-yard line, after the Blue Band's post-game performance. Each year, Parade Order is usually modified by one of the members of the drumline, and each week during "Corner" the break features an extended sketch rehearsed by the entire line (previously, a "vocal" featuring a humorous phrase or pop culture reference appeared at this spot). Other features of this performance include calling out the bass line ("Here comes the bass!"), 10 push-ups by the cymbal line, the "White DJ" visual by the snare line and circles by the tenor line.
The Graduate School, the University Libraries, and the Graduate Faculty of Penn State have established format standards that theses and dissertations must meet before receiving final approval as fulfillment of graduate requirements. The Office of Theses and Dissertations staff is responsible for verifying that all eTDs have met these requirements (refer to the Thesis and Dissertation Guide) . The text of the eTD should be proofread and free of grammatical errors and typos. It is extremely important that the author carefully review and proofread the thesis or dissertation before submitting the final document. After the official approval of the final eTD by the Office of Theses and Dissertations, changes will not be permitted.
