Hope you brought your appetite. 

"If we can win the next three games and have a chance to play a good team in a bowl game and we win that one, I would be disappointed that our kids hadn't gotten that chance, as I was in '94," Paterno said yesterday on his weekly conference call. "In '94, the problem was not me personally, it's a question of a bunch of kids that do everything you ask them to do and then at the end, they don't get what you think they deserve.

"I don't have an Achilles' heel and I can't hang myself. I'm not about to have somebody come along and shoot me, that kind of thing. We're going to play football as well as we know how to play, and hopefully, things will turn out well for us."
