For a man who earlier in the week said he wanted to keep the focus of his team's Orange Bowl battle off the two legendary coaches, Paterno sure spent a lot of time talking about himself and Bowden Wednesday. Near the end of the crazy press conference, he wasn't sure how to answer a question and told a reporter "you'll have to ask the players," which, given the fact that none have been available three weeks, drew a laugh from the crowd. Paterno closed with a half-hearted attempt at an apology for his earlier comments about the media, but stopped in mid-sentence and stomped off.
It was great theater. But don't take our word for it. Listen yourself in our FOS media files. The good stuff hits in No. 2.
