Practice on Big Ten Network

Penn State, notorious for its closed practices, is allowing the Big Ten Network to film tomorrow's practice. The show will be aired later tomorrow at 9 p.m. (presumably, for you Pat Devlin conspiracy theorists, to edit out any Daryll Clark mistakes). The 90-minute show will "include interviews with special guests, features in-depth analysis of both sides of the ball and highlights important position battles," according to a press release.

Practice on Big Ten Network

Penn State, notorious for its closed practices, is allowing the Big Ten Network to film tomorrow's practice. The show will be aired later tomorrow at 9 p.m. (presumably, for you Pat Devlin conspiracy theorists, to edit out any Daryll Clark mistakes). The 90-minute show will "include interviews with special guests, features in-depth analysis of both sides of the ball and highlights important position battles," according to a press release.

Could we possibly deduce who will win the starting quarterback spot from this show? I doubt it. For one, don't expect a practice that would exploit either player. Two, it's fairly obvious that Clark will start against Coastal Carolina. And three, it's plainly obvious -- as well -- that the two quarterbacks will split time down the middle at least for the first game. 

State College is the last stop in the BTN's road trip to a practice of every conference school. The program will also air on Monday, Aug. 25 at 4:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. and Wednesday, Aug. 27 at 5:30 p.m.
