SKULL SESSION at 11W DRY GOODSSKULL SESSION at 11W Dry Goods

It's been a while. And quite frankly, it took some effort to gather the energy to put this contest together, no thanks to the 6-3 affair we're likely in store for Saturday. So yeah, get in quick on those low-scoring predictions.

You know the rules. The comment with the closest prediction for the final score of Saturday's tilt with the Nittany Lions will win a shirt from 11W Dry Goods.

Like the lovely design featured on the right. Or something else. Your call.

The fine print:

  • Must be 18 years-old or older.
  • One entry/comment per person.
  • Duplicate predictions are ineligible — first come, first serve.
  • Deadline for entries is kickoff.

Good luck!

35 - 21. OSU

I know, out of my mind with optimism. I wiil be in the stadium for this and will be using all my positive vibes to get us up to 5 TDs. PSU will come out hot, score early but the Bucks will play their hearts out late.

And, yes, i am ready to take all kinds of heat for predicting 35!!!!

Positive vibes are a myth my friend. Everytime I use it this season we lose.

yes..or 3-2 OSU. OSU hit's a 45 yard field goal; but has the ball dangerously close to their own goal line with 15 seconds left to play. To avoid a blocked punt for a TD, they take the intentional safety and it ends tres-dos

I don't think Posey will be a factor. Not because he's rusty but because we show no sign of being able to do the three things necessary for making him a factor: 1) design plays for him, 2) have the o-line protect sufficiently, and 3) have the QB deliver the ball. Earlier in the year Stoneburner was being talked of as best TE in the country. He hasn'tchanged as a player but he's missing in action because we simply can not utilize the receivers we have. (It is quite possible to design a passing attack around the TE rather than a WR - WIS did it a few yers ago with Beckum. The problem is with our offense, not Stoneburner's position. Which will apply to Posey too.) Last week against an average defense we sweated to get 3 TDs because PUR sold out on the run and I expect PSU to do the same. PSU is MUCH better defensively than Purdue. So I'd put our ceiling at around 17 points. Will that be enough to win? perhaps. Will 10, which seems closer to the amount we will score, be enough to win?

The PSU offense has been dysfunctional. Their lone bright star, the RB, is dinged up. But I thiunk they gain by settling on one QB. We were not helped by the ongoing Miller/ Bauser uncertainty, the McGloin/ Bolden soap opera had to have been unhelpful for PSU so I think having one clear starter helps their psyche. Last year McGloin picked us apart in the first half, very nearly giving PSU a big lead before half, then got cocky and fell apart in the second half. If we let PUR and IN pass against us I think McGloin, under orders to not throw INTs, will complete passes against us. Big Hank and Sweat are out, which does not make our defense stronger. So no, I don't think 10 points will be enough to win for us.

Plus, I think PSU is playing to prove the world wrong and I think we're playing because the schedule says we're supposed to. To me this adds up to PSU 14-10 or 14-13. But I have to chose one, right? 14-13 PSU.

No, this is not a prediction for baseball season this spring.  Penn State gets a FG, a safety, goes up 5-0 only to have OSU to get a TD and convert a 2 point conversion to go up 3.

In an interview before Purdue last week, Fickell made it clear he remembered every agonozing detail of the 2009 debacle, in West Lafayette.

Maybe, if he can harness his displeasure over Purdue Harbor 2011 into something like this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMVmhI1SUq0&feature=related - Ohio State will beat Penn State, 9-3.
