STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Kyle Carter let out a laugh. He had no idea how many formations the Nittany Lions had installed. The tight end had long since lost count.

"The playbook's about two inches thick, maybe three," he said with a smile. "It's real complex."

Besides quarterback Matt McGloin, Carter said the tight ends' playbooks were the biggest. They're expected to know blocking assignments and passing routes in a slew of different packages.
