From the CDT:
In Joe's 43 years of coaching, he's entered the season with a senior starting QB with at least one year of starting experience 14 times. In those 14 seasons, the Lions averaged 9.7 wins and a winning percentage of .810. Paterno's teams overall (43 years) averaged 8.9 wins or .749 overall.
In those 14 years, PSU won 2 NC's (82 & 86), and 2 undefeated seasons (69 & 94).
Just thought was a good omen for this season.......
