Fitz weighs in on Paterno, accusations of stealing signs

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

No one can stop talking about the Penn State scandal involving former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky and whether or not coach Joe Paterno should resign (I think he should).

Coach Pat Fitzgerald has made no secret of his admiration for Paterno, so it seemed necessary to ask him today after practice what he thought of this heinous, despicable situation.

"I'm not going to go into anything besides, it is sad," Fitzgerald said. "It's really sad and I don't have a whole lot more to say besides that."

The media also asked Fitzgerald about something Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez said Monday: that the Wildcats' defense stole signals during NU's 28-25 upset victory in Lincoln.

"I'm not going to talk about what other people say and things I can't control," Fitzgerald said. "There were some things we saw in our film study that he gave away that we thought we could take advantage of, and when they were confirmed I think we took advantage of some of those things. We didn't do anything differently. If we could steal their signals and get lined up, we would be undefeated and shut everybody out. It is what it is."
