JayPa on QB decision

Here's this morning's story on the Paternos' selection of Daryll Clark as starting quarterback. I say "Paternos" because Joe's son, Jay, has probably as much input, if not more, than the old man. Said Jay: "I know people are going to say we picked Daryll because he's the older guy. Number one, if we did that we would have picked Paul [a graduate student]. So that debunks that. And number two, that's not being fair to Daryll."
