Yeah, I don't think PSU would have a chance in hell at beating Bama. That being said, if you get that far you want to really see if you could do it. Better to go down in flames than to have never walked up to bat.
If the tables were turned and we were PSU, how irate would we all be right now? Bbeat one team already in, have a 9 game winning streak, emerged as leader of easily the most topheavy division andwon the conference championship of the toughest conference..... and you don't get a shot.
That has to sting. But I bet at least a tiny part of them might be glad they're not going against Bama.
