PSU QBS USE PS3
The post title looks like a password. So I’ll elaborate. The Pittsburgh-Tribune Review has the story of how Penn State coach Jay Paterno uses the PS3 and Madden football as a learning tool for his quarterbacks.
“The good thing is nobody’s ever late for our (meetings) — not that they’re ever late — but they’re all about 20 minutes early now because they all want to get in there and turn it on and beat each other,” Paterno said of his quarterbacks. “I’m sure my son, when he finds out we have it in the building and that our guys are using it, he’ll want to come in and play it.”
The idea is to give the Penn State quarterbacks more work on their playbook, which is loaded onto a Madden football game for use in the video game machine.
“On a Friday now when we have our 15-play script, we can go in and I can do the things defensively I think we’re going to get and Anthony is going to run our 15-play script,” he said. “It’s going to enable us to do some more things this year than it did in the past. I think it has a lot of carryover.”
So how many guys are at home thinking to themselves they can now A) coach or B) register for classes and walk on somewhere. Not a chance. Tip of the hat to Larry Brown Sports for finding this gem.
