Penn State are trouble

Penn State's Spring training has started with a swing (literally!) with defensive star Jared Odrick arrested for "disorderly conduct" after getting in a fight with three Penn State students and another man.

If Odrick was fighting all four of them, then kudos to him for not backing down. But then again, it's not likely Joe Paterno will see it the way of the VFA, will he?

"Odrick was charged March 11 after police said he punched one of the individuals outside an apartment building in State College," writes Adam Rittenberg of, who adds, somewhat hilariously: "The police citation indicated that alcohol is believed to have been a factor in the incident."

This is Happy Valley for crying out loud! When wouldn't alcohol been a factor in the incident - especially in the early hours of the morning.

I don't know what Joe Paterno's plans are for Odrick. Will he be suspended for the season opener, giving Brit standout Jack Crawford the chance to shine? Or will he clean up Happy Valley all by himself for the 2009 season? Annoying, it hasn't been mentioned on Every Day Should Be Saturday's Fulmer Cup site- but it will be.

Penn State are trouble.
