Blue and White faithful ready for 2019 season
FOX43's Andrew Kalista also caught up with Penn State fans in the Windy City.
"They [the Nittany Lions] got young quarterbacks, young receiver," said Vince Dadamo, of State College. "The defense should be good, they got good players coming back, but the offense is going to take a while to get together."
Speaking of the offense..
"I am excited for Sean Clifford, I think he's going to be great," said Margie Dadamo, also from State College. "Coach (James) Franklin knows how to recruit. He decided to do it this way and I think it will be a really good season."
