Rose Bowl, Day 4

LOS ANGELES -- I'm the middle of Rose Bowl media day, but I have a few minutes to post yesterday's news in this morning's paper.

-- With Pat Devlin gone, Penn State quarterback Daryll Clark is a marked man. If he goes, the Lions are in dire straits with the untested Paul Cianciolo now the backup.

-- Speaking of Devlin, quarterbacks coach Jay Paterno and offensive coordinator Galen Hall weigh in on Downingtown East products' departure.

-- In today's Talkin', Bob Ford, Phil Sheridan and I try to cast the "Joe Paterno: The Movie." Hilarity ensues.

-- And here's what Paterno did yesterday and what he might do today (I think):

What Joe did yesterday: Joe hung out with his entire family before heading to Penn State's afternoon practice. Paterno's wife, Sue; his five children; and his 16 grandchildren are all staying on the same hotel floor as the patriarch.

What Joe might do today: Joe might find himself embroiled in a Los Angeles water war and a taboo relationship between a father and daughter that culminates in a shoot-out. Joe might try to intervene, but he's told, "Forget it, Joe. It's Chinatown."
