Jerry Sandusky presses appeal, wants to question witnesses

BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — Jerry Sandusky's effort to get his child molestation convictions thrown out ran into tough questioning Monday from a judge who voiced doubt about defense lawyers are entitled to question witnesses — including some of the former Penn State assistant football coach's victims.

Judge John Cleland pressed Sandusky attorney Al Lindsay about whether there is sufficient basis for him to allow an evidentiary hearing now, nearly four years after a jury found Sandusky guilty of 45 sex-abuse counts.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Austin Allen has been in this situation before, taking over at quarterback following the graduation of his older brother, Brandon.

The last time the younger Allen did so, he led Fayetteville High School to back-to-back state championships.

It's a scenario Arkansas' coaches would love nothing more than to see repeat itself on the collegiate level over the next two seasons, particularly after naming Austin Allen the Razorbacks starting quarterback this spring.
