Penn St. is one of the team I cheer for in college football so I hope Paterno goes out on a high note (unlikely though)!

Well Penn State's skill positioned players are looking pretty good but they're all young. Morelli or Robinson at QB is a ?. Robinson should play WR with the #1 HS WR recruit Derrick Williams. Austin Scott & Tony Hunt at RB is a decent combo but it is highly doubtful that they'll win the Big 10.

Michigan is returning many of it's star players & they'll win the Big 10 again.

Michigan is returning many of it's star players & they'll win the Big 10 again.PSU is losing 2 defensive starters, they have all their defensive playmakers. #1 CB and #9 CB recruit in the nation under their belt.

Biggest problem with PSU last year was the QB and WR positions. They committed soooo many turnovers. Morelli was one of the top QB recruits last year and a lot of us alum were hoping he would get more time this year. Robinson and Williams will play WR along with 2 VERY good RBs in Scott and Hunt.

They will win the big 10 based on their defense. PSU did NOT allow more than 21 points against them in any of their games this year. The defense in incredible allowing 15.3 points against last year. That entire defensive core is the same you will see next year with a year playing together under their belt with a much better offense....

Im makin the bold prediction, next year they will be on top of the big ten regardless of Wisconsin or Michigan......

What rankings are you going by? The only two that really matter are Rivals.com & Tom Lemming. Who's the #9 CB?

Michigan is loaded next year. The only players of significance they lose are Braylon Edwards, Marlin Jackson, & David Bass. They *should* push for a NC.

I forgot the 3... we have the top and 39th CB in the country. Willie Harriott is an excellent CB although not ranked as high so I was very happy to see him and King give commitments to Penn State. King also has a lot of "friends" there were a handful of players waiting to see where he was going to commit to before they made their decision. We have Phillips and Zemaitis coming back and have 2 very good CBs waiting in the wings for when they graduate.

I agree, Michigan is loaded and they have a very good defense. But Penn State played the same teams Michigan did practically and defensively did a lot better than michigan did. I think we were giving up 7 points less than they were and most of our offensive problems graduated and our biggest weakness was addressed with the #1 recruit in the nation.

I thought Michigan SHOULD push for a NC also this year but they lost early in the year then I dont know how the heck they blew their chance the last game of the year to Ohio State... who is horrible this year.

We will see how it plays out next year...... Im saving this thread because I have a good feeling about Penn States recruits this year.

how did they manage 7 home games and only 4 away? Not to mention 3 home games (gimmees) to start the season. Seems like the Big 10 scheduling Gods were trying to get them an easy ride after sucking for so long....

Ummm most schedules are like that in the Big10. We get all of our out of conference games during the first 3 weeks. It just so happens we had crap to play this year which were good warm up games. It isnt always like that.

We still need to travel to Michigan and Michigan State which are 2 very hard places to play. We dont play Iowa and Indiana this year, which are 2 wins so its not like the schedule was a gimme.

Purdue on the other hand, doesnt play Michigan or Ohio State and has the easiest in-conference schedule. Too bad they lost to Minnesota then got raped by ND this weekend. :lol:

The problem with 11 teams in the big 10 and no conference championship game is that each team doesnt play each other and you can have co-conference champions. The big 10 really needs to add another team or kick a team out and have a big10 East and West and have a conference championship game at the end of the season.

Either that or Penn State needs to join the Big East.

Unfortunately I lost the draw on this one. I share 4 tickets with my 8 old roomates. This way, there is never a free ticket if someone cant make a game because of work. We all wanted OSU so we drew out of a hat and I didnt get a ticket. :( We then all pay for the games we attend. I can only make the drive for 2-3 games a year so its silly for me to have season tickets.

This is going to be a very good game. A lot of people still have PSU underrated and as long as Robinson doesnt turn the ball over, we have a good shot at the upset. I wouldnt be suprised if all the ESPN dippies who tore into PSU earlier in the year jumped on the bandwagon for an upset Sat night.

We shall see. The way they played lights out against Minnesota was a good indication they can beat Purdue, Illinios, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Michigan State.

They cant run the QB draws they did against Minnesota against Ohio State LB corps. The key to this game will be turnovers and the play of Robinson.

Ohio State doesn't exactly have USC's offensive fire power. I don't mind Penn State but with their remaining schedule of Michigan, Purdue, Wisconsin, & Michigan State they're gonna lose 2 of em.

And USC doesnt have 1/4 of the defense OSU does. I cant wait for USC to play a team with a half decent defense. They play in the weakest division and have played some pretty close games this year that shouldnt have been close. USC is definately beatable this year, Im hoping Notre Dame exposes them.

We shall see. Minnesota has one of the better rushing offenses in the nation, first IF I recall heading into Penn State. What happened?

Defense wins football games in the big 10 and PSU has one of the best defenses in the NCAA this year. If they play like they did against OSU the rest of the year, they will win out. Perfect game tonight, no turnovers and lights out defense and they made OSU pay on their ONLY turnover. I cant ask for much more.

Im sticking with my prediction on PSU I made last year. Haters can hate but so far they have already surpassed all the "analysts" expectations this year and are making experts like Corso and Herbstreit look like morons. :D

ah i see. no doubt. i don't really think notre dame can do much on defense too stop USC. the only times the trojans have been stopped this year was due to their own mistakes. i know they haven't played great defenses, but they haven't proven to be stoppable, so i doubt notre dame will stop them. now can notre dame outscore them? yeah i think so...

For ND to have a chance I think we need USC to lay an egg in the first half to give ND a lead. Then just turn it into a shoot out. Our defense cant stop them, the offense needs to get the lead and just keep scoring. Hopefully the D can force Leinart into a mistake or two and it'll be enough.

Im a fan of numerous teams. Once you get acquainted with a few more of my posts, you will realize that I am far away from being a homer.

And FYI most experts predicted OSU and Michigan to run away with the Big10 this year with Purdue being the Big10 sleeper and were pegging PSU for a 5 win season. Based on their schedule, the only easy wins at the beginning of the season were the 3 non-conference games and then Illinois. Check out their schedule, for a team that was horrible the year before, that schedule looks brutal. With a QB starting his FIRST full year at QB and an almost all freshman WR corps, no expert thought their offense would be good this year. No one.

Just to rub it in to all you other Big10 guys out there:




Penn State set a Big Ten record this fall, as five teams won conference championships.
Men's and women's soccer, field hockey, women's volleyball and football captured titles with a combined 46-1 record in conference contests.

The undefeated women's soccer team won its eighth straight Big Ten title with a 9-0 slate (22-0-1 overall), while the women's volleyball squad captured its third straight conference crown with an 18-0 record (27-2 overall). The field hockey and men's soccer teams had perfect 6-0 records, and the booters also won their third Big Ten Tournament title by beating two-time defending national champion Indiana for the second time this fall.

The football team climaxed the unprecedented fall performance by capturing its second Big Ten title with a 7-1 (10-1 overall) season. No other school has ever won more than three Big Ten championships in the fall season.


Complete and utter athletic domination.
