Will Joe Paterno even be on the sidelines for Saturday’s game with Nebraska? Joe Paterno’s support among the Penn State board of trustees was described as “eroding” threatening to end the 84-year-old coach’s career amid a child sex-abuse scandal involving former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky and a one-time heir apparent.
Through all the scandal that is taking place it’s hard to focus on the fact that a football game is going to be played there on Saturday, but let’s get back to the X’s and O’s for the Huskers. Today we’ll hear from defensive coordinator Carl Pelini who says he expects Penn State to try to run the ball more. So the timing of getting Chase Rome back on the defensive line will help a lot. When Penn State runs the ball, they will go with Silas Redd who averages 112 yard per game and over five yards per carry. Pelini says Redd can run at you in different ways.
