Penn State gets back to business

-A A +A
By Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — The Nebraska and Penn State players gathered at midfield before the game, kneeling together for a long moment in a quiet stadium.
Sometimes, the most powerful statements are the simplest.
Saturday’s game was a combination of pep rally, cleansing and tribute for a Penn State community rocked by the child sex-abuse scandal involving former assistant Jerry Sandusky that cost Joe Paterno his job.
“We’ve had better weeks in our lives, obviously,” Jay Paterno, the quarterbacks coach, said after the game. “The world’s kind of turned upside down, but I think our kids were resilient.”
Affection for Penn State and Paterno was abundantly visible from players, fans and, yes, coaches. So was support for abuse victims. Beaver Stadium was awash in blue — the color associated with child-abuse prevention — right down to the flags that accompanied the band, and more than $22,000 was collected for charities that support prevention of child abuse.
