STATE COLLEGE, Pa. – Penn State's Bill O'Brien keeps his team focused on the next game — always.
His players say there's no sense looking back, except to learn how to improve. Next up for the Nittany Lions (6-4, 4-2 Big Ten) following last week's loss to Nebraska is a visit from Indiana.
Penn State fans have been irritated that players bore the brunt of the NCAA's wrath for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. Frustration boiled over again following last week's 32-23 loss to the Cornhuskers over what was ruled a fumble just before Penn State tight end Matt Lehman reached the goal line for a potential touchdown.
When asked Tuesday, O'Brien said he would tell fans that "nobody is against Penn State." He also said the Nittany Lions aren't dwelling on the past and focusing on the Hoosiers.
