STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Joe Paterno broke Eddie Robinson's record for victories by a Division I coach with No. 409 in Penn State's sloppy 10-7 win against Illinois on Saturday. The 21st-ranked Nittany Lions (8-1, 5-0 Big Ten) overcame six fumbles with Silas Redd's 3-yard touchdown run with 1:08 to go. Illinois (6-3, 2-3) drove from its 17 to the Penn State 25, but Derek Dimke's 42-yard field goal attempt bounced off the right upright as time expired. Redd had a career-high 30 carries for 137 yards for Penn State, none bigger than his late run set up after Illinois corner Justin Green was whistled for pass interference after breaking up a fourth-down pass for Derek Moye in the end zone. Among all coaches, Paterno now only trails John Gagliardi, still active at Division III St. John's, Minn., with 481 victories. "It really is something I've very proud of, to be associated with Eddie Robinson," Paterno said in a brief postgame ceremony in the me...

IS JOE PATERNO SELFISH AND/OR PROTECTING HIS STAFF?

One theme put forth by Joe Paterno critics is that the coach is too selfish to retire.I’m not going to argue that point, and I am not going to necessarily agree with it, either.But, here is another spin: What if JoePa, who preaches and practices loyalty almost to a fault, is staying on the job to protect his staff?

Whiteout at Penn State.

No, Penn State didn't suddenly buck tradition and all that's sacred in Happy Valley and go all Boise State by installing  white field turf in Beaver Stadium. That's snow down on the gridiron.

Penn State Gets Gift Win From Pathetic Illinois’ Special Teams, Offense

It was one of the ugliest college football games of all time. Certainly one of the ugliest Big Ten games. Not a good showcase of the conference on ABC’s national game. (The national media are going to have a field day ripping the conference after this one). Call it the football equivalent of the infamous 38-33 college basketball game played by these two schools in Champaign 2009...
