STATE COLLEGE, Pa.– A pep band and more than 1,000 supporters turned out to cheer on Penn State players arriving for early morning workouts as fans try to rally around a program in flux following stiff NCAA sanctions tied to the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal.

Most attendees wore jerseys and other blue and wite attire Tuesday morning at the “Rise and Rally” event organized by two former players.

Signs posted in the windows of the Lasch football building — the same place where Sandusky abused some of his victims — included inspirations quotes from Winston Churchill, Thomas Paine and Vince Lombardi.

Penn State faces a four-year postseason ban and lost scholarships because of the scandal.

It could cost the program current players, too. Star tailback Silas Redd visited Southern California during the weekend.
