    Let’s Go State!

  2. Brandie says:

    Where are you Wild Bill? I could even handle the rapier snarkiness of Drew. It’s lonely over here!

  3. Brandie says:

    Early on, looks like no one wants to win this game!

  4. Hope the Lions beat Nebraska. Not a Husker fan.

  5. Brandie says:

    Revvie! 7-6 Huskers at the half. Real Barn Burner! Victim of the 1-3-1…oops! Right Church, wrong pew!

  6. Arriba Wilver says:

    Is this basketball or football? Oh, it’s Penn State. Definitely not basketball.

  7. Brandie says:

    Your wit us like wine and a warm bath! Thanks for checking in Arreebs!

  8. Brandie says:

    And now we get snow! Where is Drew and his weather reports when you need him!

  9. Brandie says:

    No one wants to win! Both offenses are inconsistent, but I must say the Penn State D seems ready. Like the way they are stopping the run! Fumble…Big D recovers!

  10. Brandie says:

    Offense must come through…Hackenberg. TD! TAKE THAT HUSKERS!

  11. Brandie says:

    Kick off return TD for the Bad Guys! Nitts must look at how to improve kick off coverage and special teams. Sounds like the Steelers last season.

  12. Brandie says:

    Penn State will go to the Burger King Sanction Bowl…Participant, One! Should be easy to win, unless the O Line or Kick off coverage gives up some points! I joke because it’s sad…I know why it happened…it’s still a sad situation. I know it won’t last forever!

  13. Lad 9 says:

    Brandie I will venture into this thread with trepidation given my avatar, but got to keep you company for a bit. :). I loved the Stay Puff Marshmallow Bowl line btw. :)

  14. Brandie says:


    Thank you for putting up the Penn State thread. Sorry to be gabbing like some raving lunatic, but I want to represent my school!

  15. Lad 9 says:

    As you should! Just glad to finally have time to get back on the blog. Been a whirlwind last month.

  16. Well, Pitt is now bowl eligible. Now, we can hope that the Panthers will win their bowl this time since they didn’t win the last two they played in. And that’s that for this season!

  17. Brandie says:

    Good to see yinz! Glad to have the company! Otherwise, I am the thread traffic!

  18. Brandie says:

    My point being is that anything can become a bowl…Like the Dejan Kovacevic Trib Total Media Pierogies and Primanti’s and Fuel Perks n’at Bowl…Sponsored by Isaly’s!

  19. Drew71 says:

    Now if we can get the boys in blue to represent…

  20. Drew71 says:

    Did they forfeit the Miami game?

  21. Brandie says:

    Penn State…or the Police?

  22. Drew71 says:

    I don’t think Sting is a Penn State fan.

  23. Brandie says:

    And I ask you…pass over the middle, hit Robinson in the hands! Foot make those catches all day long son!

  24. Brandie says:

    You have such a moist sense of humor! Must be all that time in Florida!

  25. Brandie says:

    Wonder where the Pens thread is?

  26. Drew71 says:

    Footing A

  27. Brandie says:

    Foot? Where is my mind! Fool! Must make those catches all day long! Footing A? Nice!

  28. This would be a nice win for PSU. Better bowl game perhaps. Little Caesar’s Pizza maybe.

    Truly, 7 or 8 wins yields a warmer climate usually.

  29. Pucknutz says:

    me too

  30. Pucknutz says:

    Pens thread i me too

  31. JohninOshkosh says:

    Hope all is well with Dejan and his family. Not like him to forget to throw up a Penguins thread.

  32. theplanisworking says:

    No Pens thread?
    DK sleep in?

  33. theplanisworking says:

    Pens thread up.
    DK safe and sound……..

  34. Unfortunately, the Lions lost today in overtime. Hopefully, they’ll win next time so you all can have a Happy Thanksgiving.
