Manning brothers selected for Pro Bowl nfl Peyton and Eli Manning were voted to the Pro Bowl yesterday, marking the first time quarterback-playing brothers have been chosen for the same all-star game. The Indianapolis Colts' Peyton will make his ninth appearance in 11 seasons and will start for the AFC. It will be the first appearance for Eli, who was the Most Valuable Player for the New York Giants in their Super Bowl win in February. He will be on the NFC team. The Giants also landed the oldest Pro Bowl choice ever, kicker John Carney, 44, who was signed at the start of the season as a short-term fill-in for the injured Lawrence Tynes.

This might sound crazy, but I think 81-year-old Penn State football coach Joe Paterno might be the most sane voice in college football. Paterno wants a playoff. He said as much this week. He thinks the reasons we don't have one are bogus. He pointed out that no one cares how often - or how little - basketball players go to class. College presidents simply want to protect their golden goose in football: bowl games. The NCAA just added two, by the way, meaning 68 teams get to go to the postseason.

Offensive lineman Antonio Logan-El, a former Maryland recruit who caused a stir last year with his dramatic, nationally televised decision to sign with Penn State, will ask coach Joe Paterno to be released from his scholarship and will reconsider the Terps, he said yesterday. "A big issue for me was being away from my family," said Logan-El, who committed to Maryland as a high school sophomore but called an audible on National Signing Day in unforgettable fashion. " ... There were a lot of different variables.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - If Penn State's performance Saturday at Beaver Stadium were the only criterion, there would be no debating Joe Paterno's future as head coach of the Nittany Lions. Playing against defending national champion Ohio State before 108,000 football fans and a regional television audience, the team was tough, motivated and opportunistic and led until the final moments. Other than the outcome, a 21-20 loss, the game was reminiscent of many that Penn State has played through the years under Paterno, who will turn 77 next month.

COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland's Red Storm offense was never even cloudy last night.The run-and-shoot was the crawl-and-whimper.Before this lopsided series was finally put in cold storage, the only torrential rain that fell at Byrd Stadium came in the form of a Penn State defense that hounded, sacked and intercepted an overmatched Scott Milanovich.When Penn State's 70-7 demolition was complete, even the ninth-ranked Nittany Lions were surprised at how quickly Maryland's offense came undone."By the second quarter, they started doing stupid things," Penn State strong safety Derek Bochna said.

Penn State coach Joe Paterno summed up Maryland's plight in a single word: Speed.Make that three words: Lack of speed."Maryland needs more speed," Paterno said after Penn State's 47-7 romp over the Terps yesterday before 57,416 at Memorial Stadium. "We have a bit more of it, enough to do it when we have to, in the clutch. Our receivers could outrun them."Paterno was being charitable. The Nittany Lions seemed to be faster than Maryland from the top to the bottom of the depth chart.Paterno also went out of his way to note that Maryland played decently early in the season until some key starters bowed out for the season with injuries.
