Penn State quarterback Anthony Morelli caused a stir when he did not show up for a scheduled Alamo Bowl press conference Wednnesday. He was supposed to be one of several offensive players who talked to the media at the Alamodome.
Thursday, the Nittany Lion defense held its press conference. And when the formal portion of the event was over, and players broke out to do individual interviews, Morelli showed up in the back of the room and fielded questions for more than 20 minutes.
He said he missed the Wednesday event due to miscommunication. He wanted to attend an event at Sea World with this family Wednesday, and thought it would not be a problem if he attended Thursday's session instead.
Morelli actually had some fun with the situation as the PC was coming to an end. As the last reporter left him, he stood up, smiled and said, "Anyone want some more!" Then he pointed at several reporters and said, "How about you guys. You all right?"
