As another observer told us, "Joe has been on a rampage since that USC game."
Paterno has been upset all off-season over the loss; at the coaches, at the players and at himself. "He's just [upset] at everyone."
"Joe feels we shouldn't have lost that game. He's upset that we were out-played and out-coached. It sure seems to be driving him though," according to one observer.
Despite the frustration, many observers feels it's driving the head coach this spring. "He's been dwelling ion [the loss], but I think he's also feeding off of it. He's had a nice burst of energy (in spring practice) and physically he looks great."
