Don't think they will be doing that though. PSU usually announces their whiteout game months in advance. Plus ESPN will pull hard for the PSU game in Crappy Valley like they always do. Not to mention it's in late October when night games are legal. Part of the reason we had a nooner against PSU last year was because Night games don't happen in November unless both teams agree to it.

Hoping this is the year State Pen finally gets what's coming to them. They're already getting super cocky about this upcoming season, and similar to TTUN last year, albeit they aren't a favorite to win the B1G, they will generate a lot of preseason hype to challenge OSU for the B1G title, but ultimately won't. If anyone needs a good laugh today, just read the comments from this thread on their upcoming season for 2020. They're still reeling over Julian "Judas" Flemming. A new nickname I've learned today. https://www.blackshoediaries.com/2020/1/8/21051874/penn-state-nittany-lions-football-2020-schedule-preview-ohio-state-virginia-tech

If the game is a noon banger, my guess is that likely won't be Penn State's whiteout game? I mean, I don't think they've announced it yet, but pulling out all the stops for a noon game that neutralizes most of the environment, (Anyone who's gone to a Penn State game at Noon knows it's not that loud.) doesn't seem like a genius move. I'd bet on them making Iowa the whiteout before Ohio State if the game is at anytime other than night. As for the rest of the schedule, what games outside of maybe Oregon and PSU do you guys think will be night games/Noon or 3:30 kicks

He can play, but He's got some glaring weaknesses too. Ones of which may not be fixed with OC Marcus Arroyo leaving Oregon for Unlv. The Ducks have some pretty good talent coming back at WR if they can keep guys like JJ3 and Jaylon Redd around, (neither of those guys would leave, but the point is still raised.) but they will still be fairly green offensively. Defensively is another story, although they will lose 2-3 linebackers to graduation and to the NFL. Kayvon Thibodeaux though? Looks like He could be a problem.

The only challenge Penn State really presents is defensively, and environmentally ( their stadium that apparently generates seismic energy according to a Penn State Study.) Plus, aren't they losing KJ Hamler? The guy who drove most of the offense outside of arm punt Clifford and Friermuth? (Who could also be leaving.) Their recruiting class isn't even Top 10 this year. Sure, they're returning a decent amount, but still a lot of question marks as well as a tough opening schedule themselves. *Friermuth could be leaving. Not Clifford. Just to prevent any future confusion.

The worst part is the Buckeyes ars gonna have to do it again for every year they travel to Ann Arbor for the next 6 seasons, so if you didn't like this savage gauntlet, yinz better spoon up er somthin.

Prognostication for a basic MCL sprain is just a few days. Considering the injury is reaggravated, I'm guessing it's somewhere around grade 2, which according to the interweb is up to four weeks.

Guessing that what we saw from Fields post GW TD was his endorphins pumping like mad in the heat of a big game. As someone who's suffered mcl and acl sprains myself, I can only imagine that come dusk, Fields was probably in a great deal of pain, as injuries of such a magnitude at night can be excruciating even with pain meds.

The Fields we see on Saturday will likely be the Fields we see for the rest of the season, should He endure the BTCCG imo. I'm certain He'll be in a slightly better situation come playoff time if the game on Saturday is a forgone conclusion in favor of the good guys.

This is all coming from the words of an armchair doctor, and I could be completely wrong, but based on experience this is my guess.

I hate TTUN as much as the next guy, but I'd love to see them beat Bama. Alabama hasn't lost 3 games in like 9 or 10 years, and that would put them in a deep degree of depression not seen since the early 2000s. Plus you know, bragging rights? It doesn't really matter what the rest of the B1G does if OSU wins a national championship, but for Alabama to lose to a 3rd string Buckeye QB and a team that finished 3rd in the B1G East and was carpet bombed in the Out House by a team from the wEaK bIg TeN would be pure comedy.

Call me nuts here, but I genuinely wouldn't mind playing Clemson round 1. While I agree with Dabo sticking it to Paul fanboy, it's getting really annoying, and the guy is just mouthing off aimlessly. Call me selfish, but I'd love for OSU to beat Clemson straight up, because I'm tire of hearing about 31-0. Though I understand why yinz aren't nuts about playing them because of how physical a game that would be heading in to a potential track meet with LSU with just a week to prepare.

On the flipside, LSU could be somewhat gassed as well if they were to play OU. I'd bet that would be a shootout.

I'm honestly starting to wonder what the definition of "targeting" is. Last year, I saw officiating call mostly anything that involved a helmet hitting another helmet, even when it was clear the defender was trying to bring to slow himself down, called as targeting. This year, it's mostly the same thing, except I've seen a lot of hits that could be passed as targeting, (Whop Philyor getting hammered against PSU, Dobbins getting drilled in the helmet against MSU to name a few.) not called. Fuller's hit obviously wasn't targeting, but if this were last season, We wouldn't be seeing him next week.

The Badgers will definitely have a lot to play for. Depending on where they rank Tuesday, which is likely to be in the Top 8 after pummeling a Top 10 team on the road, they would have an opportunity to not only beat the No.1 team but redeem one of their 2 losses. Which would put them as a lock for a Rose Bowl appearance at worse.
