Will any staff get more out of this week than Penn State?

Penn State will conduct its much-discussed satellite camp on Georgia State's campus in Atlanta on Tuesday. In addition to their own efforts to publicize the event, Nittany Lions coaches have received a heaping of help from their former rivals in the SEC

On top of that, Penn State coaches will head south to the Orlando area to conduct another satellite camp on Stetson's campus on Wednesday. Current Stetson head coach, former Princeton head coach and all-around good guy Roger Hughes will facilitate James Franklin's staff in Florida.

From there, Penn State will immediately hop on a plane to Detroit where the entire staff will host a camp at Sound Mind Sound Body Football Academy from Thursday through Saturday. 

Atlanta, Orlando and Detroit will be bathed in Nittany Lion blue. 

SEC coaches may not like it, but satellite camps allow prospects exposure to coaches they likely wouldn't otherwise see, especially if that staff is located in State College, Pa. 

On top of that, Penn State offensive line coach Herb Hand will appear on Food Network's cooking show "Chopped" on Tuesday night. 

The show was taped before Hand moved from Nashville to State College so he won't be repping the Nittany Lions, but it's good exposure nonetheless.

There are 11 weeks until the 2014 college football season kicks off. It appears Penn State has already won this one.
