Recap: Alabama defeats Penn State

I enjoyed Saturday in Tuscaloosa and have enjoyed Sunday’s NFL games. Here is a recap of the big Alabama win. First a few choice quotes from Penn State’s Joe Paterno and Alabama’s Nick Saban and Trent Richardson.

“We came down here knowing how good they were and we didn’t wise up to it,” Paterno said. “I’m not just blaming the kids. I thought our kids didn’t play well and I don’t think we did a good job coaching. Period.”

“A tough crowd and a tough football team,” Paterno said. “That made it tough on him. We didn’t do a good job coaching and getting him ready for this one. I think we’ve got a long ways to go to be a good football team.”

“Trent Richardson played a fantastic game,” Saban said. “He’s the first one to get 100 yards against their defense in a long, long time , which says a lot about their defense. But it also says a lot about Trent.”

“I tried to put the offense on my back and run with it,” Richardson said.
