PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Joe Paterno has enough things to worry about beside going after his 400th career victory.
So in typical fashion, Penn State’s Hall of Fame coach downplayed questions Tuesday at Beaver Stadium about approaching his latest milestone when the Nittany Lions face Northwestern this weekend.
What Paterno is trying to concentrate on is settling on a quarterback. Matt McGloin impressed enough last week in his first career start in place of freshman Rob Bolden that Paterno says the two will compete for the starting job this week.
Bolden got knocked out of the Minnesota game two weeks ago with a concussion. Doctors cleared him to play last week against Michigan, but Paterno said he was reluctant to use him following the injury.
