New Penn State coach Tom Bradley says he is replacing Joe Paterno with ''very mixed emotions.''
The defensive coordinator was appointed interim coach by Penn State's board of trustees after it fired Paterno on Wednesday night in the wake of a child sex-abuse scandal involving former assistant Jerry Sandusky. Bradley will coach the Nittany Lions through the end...
Somebody had better tell interim Penn State head coach Tom Bradley to abandon talking about Joe Paterno in the saintly manner. Bradley said Paterno “has meant more to me than anyone except my father.”
I’m concerned that Bradley said no comment when asked if he knew anything about Mike McQueary seeing Jerry Sandusky raping a ten-year [...]

I apologize for violating that moratorium.The good folks over at The Good Phight have a device called the Ruben Amaro, Jr. Smug Advisory System, a machine that does exactly what the name would suggest. I bring...
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Capping the worst week in school history, No. 12 Penn State couldn't overcome a 17-point deficit and was stopped short on a fourth-and-1 late in a 17-14 loss Saturday to No. 19 Nebraska.
The outcome was secondary in Happy Valley.
A tumultuous chapter that began with the arrest of former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky on shocking child sexual...
