Penn State was going down and going down hard. At least that is what many prognosticators were saying last fall. The Nittany Lions couldn't possibly be worth two nickels in the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky scandal and crippling NCAA sanctions.
But Bill O'Brien kept the team together after an 0-2 start and Penn State finished 8-4, an impressive feat under the trying circumstances. There will be no time for O'Brien and his staff to rest. Scholarship reductions are kicking in and the team is still banned from postseason play.
Thanks to Kevin.
