Lurker since TatGate in 2010 and then finally signed up for an account a few years later. I post rarely, but read the site several times a day even when football and basketball are in the offseason.

That's true for the team.  But the institution continues to hero-worship a man who enabled child rape for 35 years.  Congrats to the PSU football team.  Fuck PSU the institution.

Exactly.  The whole problem is that football was always placed at the top of the priority list (above things like preventing child rape), and it looks like that is as true as ever.  Genuine healing begins by actually manning up and doing the right thing off the field (which has yet to occur), not from the scoreboard at the end of a game.  No kid of mine will ever have anything to do with the morally bankrupt institution that is Penn State.

The prospect of three B1G teams in the playoff does have a certain appeal to it.  First, it would completely troll the other conferences.  Second, it would be funny to watch PSU or TTUN beat their chest about getting into the playoffs and then get humiliated by Bama (not saying that outcome is automatic, but certainly plausible.)  Third, I'd be comfortable with a rematch against either PSU or TTUN, because I think we could beat both of them by more than the differential of our last games, removing any doubt about which team is better.  Fourth, if one other B1G team gets in, I want a second to as well, so that the first one doesn't feel as special.

Yes, I'm fine with most of these reasons being evil.

Hopefully Peppers will be gone between the Browns' first two picks.  There won't be any QB worth taking with their first pick over the DL talent available.  If the Browns did take Peppers with their second pick, it would be an awesome train wreck to watch (and I say that as a Browns fan)

So they'll be called the "Salt-Blue"?
