Daryll Clark spoke with the media this morning via conference call. The Penn State quarterback sounded much better compared to his post-Iowa game interview when he emotionally took the brunt of blame for the loss. Here's a snippet of what he had to say:
1. Clark said the loss "was pretty painful," but that the team has re-focused and is looking ahead to Saturday's game with Indiana. He said the Iowa game was one you wanted to forget, but you can't because you have to remember all the mistakes of which there was plenty.
2. He spoke to his dad and former Penn State quarterback Michael Robinson following the game. His dad consoled him, but also gave him some tough love. Robinson told him how he felt after he was dealt a similar blow in the 2005 Michigan game and how he and the team rebounded to finish No. 3 in the country.
3. The team is still ending its practices by breaking its huddle with a cry of "National championship." (You gotta dream.)
