Daryll Clark speaks

During his morning interview, Daryll Clark was gracious in his being named the starter and toward his chief competitor, Pat Devlin. He did admit to being nervous, but also anxious about his first career start. The two have not spoken, both said, but Clark expects to have a discussion with Devlin when the two room together -- as is Penn State's custom of having the top two QBs bunk together -- the night before Saturday's game. "I don't know how he's going to react to this," Clark said, adding: "I've been there. I'm anxious to see how he'll be. I hope it doesn't turn out to be him being so disappointed that he doesn't want to be cool with me anymore. I hope to goodness it's not like that."

Clark admitted that there could be some division in the locker room amongst those pro-Clark and those pro-Devlin. "Let's be honest, there are people on the team that want him in," he said. "There are people on the team that want me in. Who? I don't know. But that's just how it is."
