There were several different incidents that led to players being arrested and/or suspended from the program. Some of those issues are still winding their way through the legal system.
But 2008 is a new year, and the Nittany Lions have a new group of seniors setting a tone for the program. And according to one of them — veteran linebacker Sean Lee — off-field distractions will no longer be tolerated.
Lee addressed that subject, the rapidly approaching start of spring practice and a potential move from outside linebacker to inside linebacker in a recent exclusive video interview with FOS.
We caught up with him following the team's THON-related tours of Lasch Building last weekend.
