Sometimes I think Joe plays stupid for the sake of giving us all something to write about. Apparently the quarterback position is "wide open" this week, whatever that means. Honestly it sounds like Joe's way of thanking McGloin for not sucking and giving him an informal shot at the position.

Citing a lack of depth in the defensive backfield, the PSU coaching staff moved Powell back to the secondary before spring practice this season. But his return to defense didn't last long. A rash of injuries at wideout caused that same PSU staff to move Powell back to wideout before the 2010 regular season started.
"We probably should have been a little more aggressive in our approach to him," Paterno said Tuesday on the Big Ten conference call. "He was a good high school quarterback and a heck of a student and person. We really didn't give it the kind of effort that his ability deserved. Not that we could have (necessarily) gotten him."

Though Penn State officially is committed to playing NCAA Division I hockey, Big Ten Conference representatives won't speculate about the possibility of an official Big Ten hockey conference. Bruce McLeod doesn't buy it.
Let's start a rumor. Tell everybody you know Shane McGregoris making a run at ths starting spot in practice. Joe might even play 3 quarterbacks.
