    OK, I'll give the man his props. But most people don't know why they are called the Nittany Lions ( I Do).

    Penn State for a period of time was known as "Line Backer U".

    I like the guy, he cares about his players. But when he plays Wisconsin? HA!

    Have a nice day,

    He's 3rd right now. Two other coaches are higher but coached for lesser teams. One is still coaching and the other is deceased. I'll try to get you their names in a bit, they showed them on our local news but I didn't write them down.

    That's cool. good accomplishment. Hope he didn't jump for joy. Wouldn't want him to break that other hip.

    Great coach, but I can't stand him.. Every time I see him get interviewed before a game, he was always like oh we have injuries, we're not going to play well, oh my, the other team is so good. Oh this will be a hard game for us to win.

    Then they would go out and score like 63-0.

    Of course, he was coaching that team what scored 63 so give the devil his due.
