Penn State Game Day - FRIDAY, October 21, 2011 - 2
Penn State fans wondering
what the future will hold
MAILBAG BY NEIL RUDEL
S
orting through the Blue and
White mailbag in search of a
decent road show:
Hello, Neil:
The team is finding ways to win with
clutch plays.
How long this is going to last I don’t
know.
But I read the comments by D’Anton
Lynn, Devon Still and Matt McGloin in
Sunday’s Mirror as they don’t care what the
fans are thinking. So maybe we need to give
them some slack and hang in there with this
team.
I guess we need to show that we have
some faith in them and support them to the
end.
They really deserve the name of “the cardiac kids.”
Les Hart
Duncansville
Hello, Les:
Teams must get their motivation from
within.
The “respect” card is used at all levels —
even when teams are respected from outside
their own circle — so I don’t put a lot of
stock in it.
In this case, Penn State may be 6-1, but it
clearly still has a lot to prove — to the Nittany Nation and beyond and really to themselves.
And just to be on the safe side, given the
mean age of the staff, let’s avoid the “cardiac” references.
Neil:
BOTH Paternos have to move on for Penn
State to regain its mojo.
With Joe’s contract up this year, I sure
hope that the PSU administration has the
guts/foresight to force the transition of the
head-coaching position.
Barry Michael
Danville, KY
Barry:
There are a whole lot of holes developing
at Beaver Stadium — in the upper levels
between the 40s, in the south corner of the
end zone (press box side), and last week at
Homecoming, there were nearly as many
blue dots as people in the upper south end
zone.
The fans are speaking.
Neil:
Take a look at the South Carolina interception at the end of Saturday’s game and
how high that DB threw the ball in the air
without getting penalized.
Good rule, just bad judgment.
Tim Barton
Glenside, PA
Tim:
Had Penn State ended up losing, the call
would live in infamy.
Neil:
Think we’ll get a bowl invite to a Florida
game? Does our name and travel-well reputation still apply after last year’s downer in
Tampa?
My son wants us to go to a major bowl
game, but I keep telling him 8-4 is the best
we could do. I’d settle for a game in Florida, preferably Orlando or Tampa.
Rick Weber
Fort Myers, FL
Rick:
They’ve been to Orlando (Cap One) in
2009 and Tampa (Outback) last year so if
Lions can get to eight wins, I think the
Gator would be a better option — and fitting because that was JoePa’s first bowl
game in 1967.
Neil:
I love following your coverage over the
years, but how in the world can you give
great or good grades for basket weaving in
college. You should consider the degree of
difficulty in your class.
Grade on a curve, please!
Brother Al Schiavoni

Brother Al:
When I was a student, way back when, I
appreciated a curve.

Neil Rudel’s
Weekly Pick
Line: Penn State is a 4-point favorite.
Inside the line: Over-under is 47 ... Lions
finally covered their first over of the year
last week ... Nits are 1-6 vs. number in their
last seven games away from Beaver Stadium ... They have covered their last three vs.
Wildcats, including 6-point spot in 35-21
win in 2010 (JoePa’s 400th) ... Lions are 93 vs. spot as a road favorite in the last three
seasons but 0-2 this year ... In last decade,
NW is 18-14 vs. spot as home dog.
Prediction: Penn State 27, Northwestern
17
Comment: Lions’ offense can’t be worse
than Northwestern’s defense. Right?
Denman’s sudden exit
opens hole in 2012 class
RECRUITING
By PHILIP CMOR
[email protected]
Just when it looked like Penn State might
have to turn away a couple of recruits it really wanted because it didn’t have enough
room in its 2012 recruiting class, the Nittany Lions got some extra space it didn’t
want last week.
J.J. Denman, the four-star offensive tackle prospect from suburban Philadelphia
who committed to the Lions back in May,
took a visit to Wisconsin last Saturday and
switched his pledge to the Badgers.
Denman joins New York defensive tackle Jarron Jones (now committed to Notre
Dame) and New Jersey defensive tackle
Jamil Pollard (offer revoked for academic
reasons) as top prospects who had committed to Penn State that are no longer part of
the 2012 class.
What makes this particularly stinging to
the Lions is Denman switched to a division
rival, the Lions used to have a great track
record of producing pro offensive linemen,
and there don’t seem to be a lot of obvious
replacements on the offensive line in this
class.
Chris Muller picked Rutgers and announced for Michigan at about the same
Denman picked Penn State, and Adam
Bisnowaty decided on Pitt. Perhaps Baltimore’s Greg Pyke might become an option
if his choice of Georgia continues to struggle and makes a coaching change.
In any event, Denman’s change of heart
moves Penn State back to 16 verbals in a
class expected to bring in 22-23.
In addition to the usual attendance of
commits Austin Johnson and Derek
Dowrey, the Purdue game continued Penn
State’s recent trend of getting a strong early jump on future recruiting targets.
BlueWhite Illustrated identified about
two dozen prospects on hand to watch the
Lions hold off the Boilermakers at Beaver
Stadium last week.
Some of the top junior players in attendance were Bishop McDevitt wide receiver Brian Lemelle, Belle Vernon offensive
lineman Dorian Johnson, New Jersey athlete/defensive back Kyle LaPorte, Maryland running back Rachid Ibrahim and
Archbishop Wood defensive end Nick Arcidiacono.
Arcidiacono’s older brother, Mark, is a
reserve offensive lineman at Penn State,
while another older brother, Brandon, has
committed to Rutgers. Johnson is 6-foot6, 268 pounds and already has a scholarship offer from West Virginia. He’s a player who could wind up on either side of the
football.
Lemelle (5-11, 171) caught 70 passes as
a sophomore in helping the Crusaders
make it to the PIAA Class AAA finals, including four touchdown passes in a District 3 playoff win over Lampeter-Strasburg. LaPorte already reports having a verbal scholarship offer from the Lions. He’s
also been receiving interest from Florida
and Miami.
Ibrahim set a Maryland state record last
year when he scored 50 points in a game.
He came to Penn State with teammate
Jacquille Veii.
Penn State also welcomed several even
younger prospects to Happy Valley for the
Purdue game, including Elizabethtown
sophomore quarterback Tyler Cottle and
Imani Christian freshman Brannon Murphy; Murphy’s coach at Imani is the
brother of former Penn State receiver Terry Smith.
The Lions made another move off the
field to try to bring a top underclassman
closer to picking Penn State. They recently
extended a verbal scholarship offer to
Cedar Cliff tight end Adam Breneman.

BY STEVE SAMPSELL
Special to Gameday
Maybe it was not a mean-spirited moment, but it sure sounded
like one.
If nothing else, it was wrong.
After Penn State’s victory over Purdue last week, when the Penn
State Sports Network went to audio of coach Joe Paterno from his
postgame news conference, listeners caught a question (from the
Altoona Mirror’s Cory Giger) about Penn State’s defense that first
prompted a retort from Paterno.
“Are you going to write what I tell you? Or what you want to
write?”
While that was happening, Penn State play-by-play man Steve
Jones was laughing, a deep Ed McMahon-like chuckle, as he clearly supported the coach cracking on the reporter.
On its own, the coach-reporter interaction was OK. Paterno has
been coaching for nearly five decades. He can handle himself in
such situations.
Plus, it was the kind of thing some fans like to hear. Those fans
dislike that the media stress negative things with the legendary
coach despite the fact his team has just one loss. Other fans, more
critical of the program, might like any and all questions.
Such situations happen almost every week at Penn State and
places across the nation. It was even good radio.
What was wrong in this situation was the laughter from Jones. He
was bashing someone else, laughing at their efforts and the coach’s
response even as Paterno took care of things himself.
Unfortunately, Jones does such things on a regular basis.
Earlier this season, he belittled, sighed and sniffed when he
talked about “Internet reports” that were wrong “three times” with
stories about team captains for the Nittany Lions.
While his access and knowledge of the Penn State program are
perhaps unrivaled, Jones just sounds mean and petty when he
shoots down the work of others. He’d be better off (and the program as a whole would benefit) if he could be an ambassador and
not the man who determines which other media members do their
job well and which do not — at least as part of game coverage.
If he wants to take up that chore, he has a daily sports-talk show
in State College that would provide a more logical forum.
Make no mistake: Jones is good at play-by-play, usually really
good with down and distance facts and figures. He’s a professional worthy of the Penn State job he’s been doing for years.
At the same time, from his bully pulpit, he just sounds like he’s
being a bully when he injects insinuations or undermines the work
of others.
BREAKDOWN
GIGERʼS GAME
PENN STATE
OFFENSE
NORTHWESTERN
This could be breakout game for Lions’ offense for two reasons. First,
you’d think they’d be able to find
some consistency at some point. Second, and more importantly, Northwestern’s defense is awful, giving up
at least 38 points in three straight
games.
Wildcats run quirky offense in which
they throw a lot for short gains and
try to keep teams off balance. QB
Dan Persa runs it well (74.2 percent
for 696 yards in 3 games), but he’s
only 80 percent after Achilles injury.
Backup QB Kain Colter also plays a
lot.
Lions were exposed a bit against Purdue, giving up 162 yards rushing and
344 overall. Boilers proved can run on
PSU. LBs and CBs have to be prepared for quick throws and can’t miss
tackles. Wildcats can move ball, but
look for them to struggle in red zone.
Northwestern gave up 41 points to an
Iowa team that scored only three
against Penn State. Comparing common opponents doesn’t always work,
but that’s a bad sign for Wildcats.
They’re allowing 257 yards passing
and 172 rushing per game.
DEFENSE
SPECIAL TEAMS
Anthony Fera has been named Big
Ten’s top specialist two of past three
weeks. He’s 9-of-10 on FGs, with lone
miss coming from 52 yards, and averages 43.8 punting. Chaz Powell came
up with huge KO return last week,
and celebration penalty was bogus.
Another area of weakness for Wildcats. PK Jeff Budzien is 3-of-6 on FGs
with long of 47. P Brandon Williams
averaging just 38.3 yards per kick.
Steve Flaherty handles kickoffs.
While Fera does all three for PSU,
Wildcats have three different kickers.
COACHING/INTANGIBLES
Joe Paterno goes for win No. 408,
which would tie him with Eddie
Robinson for second most in college
football history. Robinson’s wins were
in Division I-AA, while all-time leader
John Gagliardi of Division III St.
John’s of Minnesota, has 480.
Pat Fitzgerald was a great defensive
player as a linebacker at Northwestern in the 1990s, but as a coach his
team’s defense struggles. Many PSU
fans would like to see Fitzgerald succeed Paterno, but he’s signed at
Northwestern through 2020.
PREDICTION: This is a bad Northwestern defense, and if PSUʼs offense doesnʼt start clicking this week, it never will.
