Penn State Won't Turn Down Bowl Game Invite, Says Tom Bradley

Within hours of the Jerry Sandusky grand jury report's release, concerned fans and outsiders were calling for the Penn St. Nittany Lions to cancel their upcoming game against Nebraska, cancel the rest of the season, refuse an eventual bowl game invite, or disband the football program altogether for a few years.

As we can see, the first two of those haven't happened, and based on interim coach Tom Bradley's Tuesday press conference, the third and fourth sound unlikely as well.

Pete Thamel @PeteThamelNYT Bradley also said that any rumors of Penn State not accepting a bowl invite are unture. And there will also be a season next year.

There's a question of which bowl game would take a risk on associating themselves with Penn State at this point. After corporate sponsors and football recruits alike have broken ties with the school over the Sandusky cover-up scandal, it's not hard to foresee several bowl games, which all have corporation names as part of their official titles, choosing to do the same.
