Congratulations to the USC Trojans. Mark Sanchez had a career day. We were uncharacteristically sloppy with turnovers and penalties. They were clearly the better team tonight. I wish we could go back and replay the second quarter. Take away all those penalties and turnovers and the 24 unanswered points and we win 24-14. But that's football. That's why you play four quarters.
Penn State played their hearts out. They could have given up when they trailed 31-7 at the half. We have a lot to be proud of, and a lot to look forward to next year. Ten years from now when I look back on this 2008 team I won't remember the Rose Bowl. I'll remember moments like these.
Thanks to the 2008 Big Ten Champion Penn State Nittany Lions.
