 At least Rutgers had run the ball well against other teams that they had played.  Penn State has not, and I think you could argue that they have not played anyone with a particularly good defense either.

Can't stand Stanford but I'm going with Shaw anyway, I respect him that much.  Dantonio is doing pretty well in my book too.

Abandon Thread?

sorry I don't have the gif

Comment 21 Oct 2014

Kijana Carter was a super stud at PSU and a super dud with the Bengals.

Mike McQueary only started at QB for I think one year, but it was one of those years when the Buckeyes should have beat Penn State but didn't (1997).  Even then, the guy annoyed me--and yes he's the same Mike McQueary who was the key witness in the Sandusky case.

You make a great point about Braxton, who, strangely, is something of a forgotten man this season.  But Pollack should know better, he's getting paid.

Comment 21 Oct 2014

So good to see the TEs getting some catches.  Opposing DCs probably have been and will be losing some sleep, there are so many things to worry about with this offense.  Much more diverse than last year.

Narduzzi had it too easy in the CC game, he'll have to work harder on November 8.

For a prime example of what I am stating, look at the dumpster fire thread DMAC posted about JT's arm strength that has blown up to over 155 comments and earned him more than 100 DV's.

We have too many critics on this site who do nothing more than be negative, over exercise their DV buttons

Umm, Dmac's comment about J.T. Barrett's arm strength was criticism. Yes, I understand it was well intentioned, and overall Dmac is as excited about J.T. as anyone.  I just think his timing was not so good.  I commented to that effect but did not DV.

I missed it the first time I read it, the article clearly states that Ms. Ward-Roof declined to comment when asked.  We are left to wonder why. 

Comment 20 Oct 2014

Outstanding post JohnBlair. +1

I would add, maybe someone should ask Ms. Ward-Roof, it's not like we can expect an honest answer from Coach Fisher.

Comment 20 Oct 2014

stop being immature little dickwads who keep bringing up child rape because we don't like a dead football coach and his fans.

Some of us...

  • Don't like child rape
  • Don't like the dead football coach
  • Don't like his fans

You want to call us names?  Fine.  What does that say about you? 

Comment 20 Oct 2014

I get that lame humor on this topic, or anything that might be seen as such, isn't ok here.  And I don't have a problem with that.

Does this also mean that any further serious discussion of the NCAA's actions against Penn State is also banned?

Comment 20 Oct 2014

Who would have thought there would be a discussion like this after Braxton went on the injured list for the season?  It's like people forget that JT is the backup.  How fortunate we are.  

And BTW that guy who backs up JT still looks like a damn good player too.

...but the "Ped State" stuff has to go.

That's up to the moderators, is it not?

Not everyone thinks jokes about overweight coaches are ok, and not everyone thinks celebrating Marcus Hall's twin birds is ok, so does that stuff have to go too?  

For the record, I'll agree that it's time to move on from the Sandusky scandal here at 11W, but I don't get to decide that.  Maybe you do...or do you just think you do? 

Edit: Seeing that this discussion was started by Jason Priestas, whom I assume is either a moderator or of even higher status, then the issue is settled.  Agreed, no more of those references, and I apologize if I ever did in the past.  Not sure if I did or not.

But I still don't like Penn State.

Comment 20 Oct 2014

NO more honoring of Joe Paterno, even by a small number of people.  Period.

Asked and answered.

Oh, and BTW, why have there been no trials, or did I miss something during the past THREE YEARS?

And I don't like that they got the sanctions lifted early and might play in a bowl this year.

That is all.

Comment 20 Oct 2014

Calling them "Ped State" makes it sound like child rape was tolerated at all levels of the administration there, all the way to the top...oh, wait, that's exactly what happened.  Never mind.
