JayPa on QB decision

Wednesday, August 27, 2008, 8:08 AM
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... Read more

Nick Sukay done

Tuesday, August 26, 2008, 12:20 PM
According to the Week 1 game notes released just moments ago, redshirt freshman safety Nick Sukay is likely done for the season after having surgery for sesmoiditis in his right foot. Sesmoiditis, in case you didn't know, is an inflammation of the sesamoid bone (I didn't know either and had to check... Read more

Cornerback Tony Davis said that he expects senior Lydell Sargeant to start at the right cornerback spot for this Saturday's game. Sargeant and A.J.

Deon Butler on QB situation

Tuesday, August 26, 2008, 9:38 AM
Just spoke to wide receiver Deon Butler. He said the players don't know who the starting quarterback is yet. He said he's not sure when they'll find out, although he said it would benefit the receivers to know at least two days beforehand. "We're just as much in the dark," Butler said during... Read more

No quarterback for old Paterno

Tuesday, August 26, 2008, 8:49 AM
Here's today's story on the uncertainly at the quarterback position, by now old news. We'll have a post after Paterno's teleconference later today unless one of the players scheduled for this morning's conference calls has anything newsworthy to say. Read more

Monday, August 25, 2008, 8:15 AM
Good morning. Five days until the season starts. Here's my story on safety Anthony Scirrotto, who looks for redemption this season, in this morning's paper. Here is also my whimsical look at the season ahead (also in the paper, but not online): Coastal Carolina Saturday, noon. Here's what to expect:... Read more

Depth chart

Monday, August 25, 2008, 6:06 PM
The depth chart for Saturday's Coastal Carolina game was released a little early and, as predicted, it listed Daryll Clark OR Pat Devlin as the starter. Joe Paterno most likely won't say who's the guy during tomorrow's teleconference, but Clark and Devlin, who have conference calls with the media Wednesday... Read more

The Countdown Is On

Friday, August 22, 2008, 9:31 PM
Just a few notes before I head out for my last weekend of sanity before the season starts. Penn State will release the Coastal Carolina pre-game depth chart on Monday at 7 p.m. I'll have it posted as soon as it's released, but don't expect to have a clear answer as to who's the starter at quarterback...
