State College, PA (Sports Network) - A group of Penn State football players, led by seniors Michael Zordich and Michael Mauti, said they plan to stick together after the NCAA levied heavy sanctions against the program earlier this week in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal.
The NCAA gave the current players the option of transferring and becoming eligible immediately at other schools, but the group on Wednesday gave no indication of making such a move.
