My Opinion: Paterno Makes A Penn Statement With Vote

Reporter Write Upsby Mark Harrington

No one quite makes a statement like Joe Paterno. In case you haven't heard, in the latest USAToday/ESPN Coaches Poll, of which Joe is a voter, he chose to split his first place vote into thirds, giving 1/3 to the top three undefeated teams: University of Southern California, Auburn and Oklahoma. Although many fans may view Joe's split vote as a comical representation or mockery of the voting system associated with the BCS, I believe its intention is rooted in a much deeper principle held by PSU's coach and makes a 'penn statement' on his thoughts with the current system.

Note: PSU Playbook has confirmed with both Penn State Sports Information and Jim Welch sports Deputy Managing Editor of USAToday who oversees the Coaches Poll that Joe Paterno was the coach who split his vote into thirds.

Lady Lion Basketball News: Penn State upsets #2 North Carolina 77-71

Lady Lions NewsAfter starting the season with three consecutive road losses, the Penn State Lady Lions made their primary near-term goal to get back to .500. Lopsided home wins over Duquesne and George Mason brought the team within 1 game of break even, but to achieve a 3-3 record, Penn State would have to overcome their most difficult challenge of the young season, the 2nd ranked North Carolina Tar Heels.

Last season, the Tar Heels rode the strong efforts of their post players to a 73-60 win over Penn State in Chapel Hill, and today, the Lady Lions looked to return the favor. It would not be easy however, as North Carolina came into the game with seven players averaging at least 7 points per game. The Heels are led by sophomore guard Ivory Latta, a surefire All-America selection at season
