    Ready for the Lions to rock. Will be ready to see how the kid quarterbacks look.

  2. Arriba Wilver says:

    I thought part of the NCAA sanctions was that Penn State couldn’t have it’s own thread on the blog.

    (Duck . . . Incoming)


  3. Wild Bill says:

    A timely duck, AW!

  4. Arriba Wilver says:

    I’m not, but I think there may be more Penn State alums on here than you think WB. ;-)

  5. Wild Bill says:

    It’s possible, there are a few of us out there.

    My post was deleted? Why?

  7. Wild Bill says:

    Back from the sports bar in Ocean City. Nothing like a little stress to make you drink more. The offensive line was below par, and that makes things tougher for a frosh quarterback. With the fumble by Robinson and two picks, State was fortunate to win. Coach ‘em up Bill, and the next weeks will be easier on the Lion alums!

  8. Wild Bill says:

    DK, thanks for providing a thread for this game. It’s gotta be the holiday contributing to the lack of commenters. Or, they might just be following the Pirates.

  9. JohninOshkosh says:

    Penn State wins 23-17. Better opener this year and beat the Orange on a neutral site.

  10. JohninOshkosh says:

    This Georgia/Clemson game is incredibly entertaining.

    Go Clemson!

    (Didn’t know what thread this belonged in). :)

  11. John Lease says:

    I saw some of this on TV. PSU didn’t look very good, thankfully Syracuse was much worse.
