Anybody have any info on Penn State? I can't remember the last time I saw Penn State play. But I plan to dig around and learn about them because I like knowing what we are up against, and it increases my enjoyment and anticipation of the big game... our last game until Fall 2010. For starters, everybody knows Joe Paterno, one of the greatest coaches in any sport in all of history. The guy has been coaching at Penn State since before many current football coaches were born, including Les Miles (Les was born in '53, Paterno started coaching at Penn State in '50). Here is an awesome piece that ABC/ESPN did on Paterno: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQDlaWFeilE[/media] The Penn State student newspaper reported on May 27, 1950 (three years before Les Miles was born) that Joe Paterno, who had been Brown’s quarterback for two years, would be joining the football team as an assistant coach. The article ran on page 3. This picture accompanied the article. The article said: "He has been hailed as the 'smartest quarterback Brown [Ivy League] had in the past five or six years' by Barney Madden, veteran sports editor of the Providence Journal." Paterno was hired at Penn State by head coach Rip Engle, who was Paterno's coach at Brown. Paterno played both ways at Brown University -- quarterback and cornerback, guiding the team to a 15-3 record over the 1948 and 1949 seasons. He also still currently shares, with Greg Parker, the Brown career record for interceptions at 14. Paterno reviews the Nittany Lion playbook in his office on the Penn State campus. Paterno diagrams a play on a see-through screen. August 17, 2009 Paterno brings a pizza to the students in "Paternoville", an area where students have been camping out days before the home football games in order to obtain the best seats.
