Or how the committee put a 1-loss OSU team in last year over a conference champion. I agree it's flawed, but it's how it works ultimately.
Too bad everyone else comes back at WR/TE
Using this theory I would assume that you hate all Catholics because of the child rape coverups, right??
Get off your high horse and just understand that none of the kids /coaches involved with the program that just won the B1G had anything to due with those awful events.
I don't want to come in sounding like an ass but this had to be said. Nothing that happened tonight has anything to do with that awful tragedy, your just bringing it up because you must be some ultra-moral demigod who is above all of us.
Please beat BAMA- on a football related note.
You make good points outside of #1. That perception of PSU and Paterno hasn't really disrupted recruiting over these past few seasons and doesn't prevent us from playing on National T.V. So your claim that the Paterno saga could affect us is just silly, especially considering that "rapist" Jameris Winston and the Seminoles were able to make it in twice in a row with that issue around the program.
OSU can never complain about officiating don't even get me started.
YOU MUST HAVE FORGOT ABOUT ALL HE GAMES THAT THE REFS GAVE TO OSU
LOL, you guys actually lost to us... Just beat Michigan and you still are in CFP...
Well I would hope not...
Good game tonight Bucks. You guys played well on both sides of the ball (especially with J.T. Barrett at QB on offense) and have an inconsistent, yet big playmaking stout defense. I'll be rooting for you guys this year, especially against Michigan. See y'all next year...
lol well played
Am not sure why Minny is a night game, but look forward to my Lions coming to Columbus at night in one of the B1G's best night-atmospheres.
Good luck Bucks! B1G Game!
Oklahoma just won a sugar bowl.
Out of all those towns you just named State College is the only real college town, maybe with Bloomington. West Lafayette isn't lovely I hear. So going to a college town could appeal to a recruit. Out of Minnieanapolis, Madison, and Columbus, Columbus may be the most appealing to a recruit out of all of those cities. Never been there but here Columbus is a great city.
I consider myself a realistic PSU fan. I am both a member of 11W AND BSD so I can see both sides of the equation. I love BSD, and is in my opinion the best SBNation blog for all B1G schools. The writing over there is typically excellent, and rarely flawed. However BSD has several stupid commenters who LOVE to chat Joe Paterno, which leads to arguments, which leads to mayhem. Me and my fellow BSD'ers also do know how to chat football so were not all idiots, unlike the many who you see on BSD.
Don't insult McMoxie
Michael Mauti was getting held :/
Oh I agree, nothing special about CJF. Issue is PSU fans are going to be happy when we go 9-3 because we've unfortunately become used to that form of mediocrity. We have 1 good season every 5-6 years, and all the others are Outback Bowls.
That 2008 game brings back swell memories!
You're right when you say PSU has never dominated B1G, but I do believe 2015-2016 PSU will be a B1G title contender because recruiting and expierence will start to kick-in. PSU will return 10 Offensive starters in 2015, and return 7 Defensive Starters.
Gesicki is gonna be special in a few years, but he's to small to play TE right now. He is a perfect example of having younger guys getting experience due to the sanctions.
Franklin is a mediocre coach, but our DC is a fucking genius.
Offense: Really shitty O-Line combined with poor-playcalling + Angry Larry Johnson + Joey Bosa = Not good
PSU does have extremely talented receivers, and tight ends. Both units are very young, and will return everybody next year, so do keep an eye on them. Hackenberg is a excellent QB, but makes awful decisions under pressure.
Defense: Really good Run D, I believe WE ARE ranked #1 in country in Run D. Pass D is also very good, keep an eye on Jordan Lucas, he is a very talented Junior CB.
Crowd: Fans will be noisy, might want to bring an umbrella.
PREDICTION: I love my Lions so damn much, but they are too young, and too crappy on offense. OSU 31 PSU 3
