TicketCity Bowl 2012: Tom Bradley, Jay Paterno Comment

Penn State interim head coach Tom Bradley talked to ESPNU's Lisa Salters after the Nittany Lions' 30-14 loss against Houston at the TicketCity Bowl in Dallas and lamented the Cougars' long scoring plays.

"We knew one of the problems we were going to have was the big play and that was what got us," Bradley said.

The coach said he thought his players put in a good effort given the difficult circumstances they've endured over the last two months. He also expressed happiness for Houston coach Tony Levine, who picked up his first career win as a head coach in the victory.

Quarterbacks coach and co-offensive coordinator Jay Paterno talked to Salters as well. He echoed Bradley's thoughts on the team's effort, saying "We were just one step off most of the game."

Speaking about his emotions after what could potentially be his final game at Penn State, Paterno said it will likely hit him when he sees his family after the game, and that Penn State will always be home for him.

Lastly, when asked for a comment directed to his father, Joe Paterno, back at home in State College Paterno opened up.

"I love the guy and I'm looking forward to everyone knowing what I know about him and what I know about his character and that that has never wavered, that he has always done what was right."
