Paterno suspends players for Saturday's game vs. Oregon State

Penn State players Maurice Evans, Abe Koroma and Andrew Quarless will miss Saturday's game against Oregon State after police found marijuana in their apartment earlier this week, Penn State coach Joe Paterno said on his radio show Thursday night.

University police seized marijuana from an apartment shared by Evans, Koroma, Quarless and cornerback A.J. Wallace, who Paterno said was not involved in the incident and will be allowed to play Saturday against the Beavers.

No charges have been filed and the investigation is ongoing, Lt. Bill Moerschbacher of the Penn State university police wrote in an e-mail to ESPN.com.

"Wallace was really not part of that situation, but Evans and Quarless and Koroma were," Paterno said on the show. "It's unfortunate. We preach, preach, preach and they stepped out of line. They deserve what they're going to get. Whatever that's going to be, I don't know. My feeling on all of this is they have a responsibility to the program, they have a responsibility to themselves, to their family.

"They have responsibility to their teammates. And if they do something as dumb as it appears they did, and I'm not saying if they did or they didn't yet, but even being close to that kind of thing, I'm not going to play any one of those three kids this weekend."

Police were called to the apartment Tuesday night after reports of a loud party. They obtained a search warrant and found a small amount of marijuana.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that warrant listed only Wallace and Quarless as residents who were present during the search.

Evans, a first-team All-Big Ten selection, and Koroma are starters at defensive end and defensive tackle, respectively. Quarless, who was suspended for spring practice following a DUI arrest, is listed as a reserve tight end on Penn State's depth chart.

"They're all three good football players, they're not bad kids," Paterno said. "But you pay for it when you do dumb things. It's something that they'll be living with. ... I feel sorry for them and I wish I could do something besides saying, 'You're going to sit out this week, 'til I get all the information.' Because I don't have it all."

The suspensions are the latest in a series of off-field problems for Penn State. Paterno dismissed defensive tackles Phil Taylor and Chris Baker earlier this summer for their involvement in off-field incidents. Penn State also announced cornerback Willie Harriott has been dismissed from the team for an unrelated issue.
You mean this didnt make the posts yet????????

Wow, I'm stunned Joe is acting this fast. Yet again, I'd much rather they're taught a lesson.

Boy do I Wonder what we're going to have up front on the D-Line.

I sound like a hater all the time, but I do or at least did respect this program.

They seem to be attracting a criminal element these days, no?

Theres a lot of pressure on Joe Pa to step down from within the University. Its no coincidence that this kind of stuff is getting flagged now when it went unreported for years. Campus security?? are you kidding me. When I was at PS, anyone on the football team would have had to kill someone to make a rap sheet.

I don't think it matters if they carry it with them if they get caught it is illegal then I think they should be punished.

Last I checked it was AGAINST THE LAW to carry any amount of the stuff. Maybe most of the players do... but these morons got caught with it.

Big difference between having the stuff and being caught BY LAW ENFORCEMENT with it.

Good excuse! Got anymore for them? They seem like they could use a guy who can come up with some for them lately.

Wait wait...since when do cops feel the need to obtain search warrants to go quiet down a HOUSE PARTY?!

I think this is only ridiculous because it looks like they were being targeted for being football players.

Good point. Maybe the are targeted because of their status. One would think at such a major university/program they would get a bit more leeway than most... but from my experience, athletes do seem to be targeted to some degree.

Perhaps they were being watched for a bit for something and the police took this as an opening to move in and arrest them?

I think if you play the game and get caught then pay the price I do not feel sorry for them.
