Penn State from my perspective definitely let Paterno run out the clock for too long.  Outside of a random good season, they declined substantially in the 2000’s.  I would say their ability to return from the Sandusky scandal to the clear #2-3 team in the B1G is pretty good.  Franklin has you in a pretty good spot.  Certainly a better spot that Michigan, paying big money for unspectacular results.    
Michigan’s 80’s and 90’s successes were largely due to a watered down B1G.  They regularly were smashed whenever they played a good team out of conference.  Harbaugh has them back to where they once were but the rest of the conference has picked up their game and we’re in place we’ve never really been, so the results aren’t there for them.

Of course not.  Most likely none of its true.  I guess I need to add italics but figured it was obvious...guess not!

If there was an actual violation, does anyone honestly think Michigan wouldn’t report it to the NCAA?  They’d be all over it like a fat kid on a cupcake.  If this sequence of events is half true, it’s no more than a stunt by Harbaugh to rile up Coach Day and get him flustered.  No different than pre fight trash talk in MMA/Boxing to get in someone’s head and get them off their game.  It probably will backfire and reeks of desperation but might as well exhaust all options I guess?

I guess I’m on the all or nothing approach.  I’d rather not have a season than some half ass bastardized approach that many are floating.  Forcing The Game to the front just to “have it” in case the season ends abruptly just seems pointless to me.  One of the main factors of The Game is that its a deciding factor in one or both teams season and it increases the pressure and intensity.  With this plan it’ll just be a glorified exhibition which tarnishes it for me.  
Also the quality of the product we see will be very subpar.  There haven’t been any scrimmages that I’m aware of and no spring ball.  Heck, many teams are still in quarantine.  It just seems like desperation to me and it’ll cheapen the experience.  Just wait until next year when hopefully we can prepare normally and everyone can be on the same page.

Nothing makes me smile more than watching their sanctimonious, holier than thou fans get their hearts broken, but this is sick...and makes me feel sick.  If proven true it’s certainly going to shake things up there.

No offense to anyone who’s pining for a season but we’re about to witness some garbage quality of play.  I just hope our experienced guys have maintained their rhythm with one another.  Teams haven’t had any opportunity to practice or scrimmage.  Plus no spring drills or scrimmages.  It’s going to be rough when compared to what we’re used to seeing.
