So far these answers are basically my thoughts as well. Tate needs someone to give him some good advice for the first time in maybe ever. Use your skills in the most valuable manner, keep your head down, and work harder than the next guy.

Ego aside, I’d love to see what he could do as an H-back/slot receiver. Shame we won’t, though.

Completely agree. Spent 4 years as an ATLien. Love that city, but man, UGA fans are the most delusional fan base I’ve ever met. You’ll be hard pressed to find a UGA fan that doesn’t seriously believe they’re a top 3 program in the country. Like Alabama is only a hair above them historically and currently. These people call into local sports talk radio shows and weep when Georgia loses. I’ve heard it.

Something doesn't add up about Bolden... dude gets booted from the University for over 2 years, but there's no cops or prosecutors involved? Not to jump to conclusions, but it sounds like he was moving in on the chick of some USC booster's son (or something ridiculous like that).

As long as OSU can review all available docs related to the incident and there's nothing criminal in there, any help the secondary can get is welcomed.

Would love to see Dobbins and Weber each go for a hundred to build some confidence in the running game... But I don't know if Haskins and the WR's will be slowed down enough to let that happen. Hoping to see the D put some points on the board, too. This is game can be a real building block in terms of getting things right.

55-14, men of scarlet and gray.

Big plays. That was the first topic here and I agree... But Urban talking about "bend don't break - we don't do that," I disagree with. The D definitely bent last week, but they never broke (save for that 94 yarder to KJ Hamler). I think that's the mark of a great defense. Make mistakes, learn from them, and clamp down when absolutely necessary. The first quarter of the PSU game would've broken other teams... But our boys held strong and made them chase field goals. Could've very well been a 14-0 hole instead of 6-0.

Ramsey, from what limited footage I've seen, looks to be a gamer... But let's face it, he's no Trace McSorely yet (or for IU, Antwan Randle-El). D line should be able to force enough pressure that a young QB on the road, in front of 110,000, will make some mistakes. As long as the back 7 can capitalize on those mistakes, he shouldn't be a big problem. IU does have a lot of WR's in the mix, but really don't have a stud that will cause any matchup problems. I would think multiple zone blitz looks should be enough to confuse Ramsey and their O line and lead to 2-3 turnovers.

But most importantly - NO BIG PLAYS. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, NO MORE BIG PLAYS.

Duuuuuude... That PA announcer was as bad as the halftime show. He was off on like 25% of the distance calls, and they kept screwing up the game clock.

My buddy's dad, a Penn State alum that has 6 season tickets (and is the reason I got to go to the game), looked over during the halftime show and said "I bet this sounded a lot better during rehearsal..." I almost pissed myself. All their fans in my section were cringing the entire time.

Also, PSU folk were overwhelmingly good people. I can back you up on that.

Nah. "Livin on a Prayer" is a big Penn State song, same with Lion King. "Livin on a Prayer" is their big song for THON, their Dance Marathon where they raise money for cancer... Thus, the living on a prayer reference. And the Lion King theme is typically always played as well... Because, you know, they are the Nittany Lions.

Nothing mocking, and nothing that they don't play every home game. For the most part, their fans were great. 5-10% assholes, but I had way more people say good luck, thanks for coming to State College, etc. Some even went out of their way to ask if we were having a good time while tailgating. Most of the assholes were students anyway, and I think the students are supposed to be that way because they don't know any better.

Another article where a I scrolled right past the author, but within a few paragraphs, I knew it was Ramzy.

Just a beautiful write-up, as usual.
