Navy leads Ohio State 7-3 in the 2nd. Someone on the SEC network picked this as an upset. We'll see.

Sam Ficken is my hero. Kid just keeps getting back up every time he gets knocked down. He mentioned just being happy for his teammates in his post game interview.

Hack!!!????  Don't throw it there. You aren't Favre yet.

Damn!   >:(

Get Haley in at CB. He has a big play in him.

Single game passing yardage record is in jeopardy. Is it still 399 yards?

Starting to remind me of BO'Bs first game. Up in the first half. Couldn't put them away. DB had shot at making a play but ended up a TD the other way.

We need a TD drive here.

Bad decision to not punt. Got away with it. We get the ball next.

Horrible pass interference call. Screwed us big time there.

Nice back to back 3 and outs sandwiched around a bad special teams penalty.

Wasted opportunity. But 3 is better than UCF got when they were in that spot. So trying to be positive about the outcome. First game here for the staff. Still figuring things out.

Hack getting time. Good calls by Donovan. Not as panicked as a day or two ago.

Line looks better this drive. Need to get more running room. And need to punch it in here.

After 15 minutes:

Except for that last throw, Hack looks good. Hamilton, James and Lewis appear to be the main targets. The line needs work. Special Teams look like nothing changed. Defense -- I'm undecided. Didn't see enough yet.

I'm really excited for this season also, but I just hope expectations are in check for this team.  I'm going to be really happy is PSU can win 8 games this year, but to hear some people around town you'd think we were going to win 10 or 11 games this season.  Think that many are underestimating the hole we're still digging out of.

Still, it should be really fun to watch what Franklin and Co. are planning to do with this program even if we have to take some lumps this year.

I predict that either UCF or Akron will beat us, but not both.  :)

I would also be thrilled with 8 wins.  I'll be happy with six.  I think this is the worst of the sanction years (barring something else going terribly wrong) and never sinking below .500 would be a very good result for the program (which I still feel got screwed by the NCAA).  Depth and inexperience could make for a long season.

Hopefully, 8:35 PM on Saturday, not 8:35 AM.
Dude, think about it.  Ireland is how many hours ahead of us?  If our TV time was 8:30PM the game would be played over there close to about the time the Pubs are shutting off all the Gueness taps.  HAS to be 8:30 am. 

Breakfast with the Lions!!

Wow, guess my comment flew right over your head.  I was hoping tjb's TV goes out at 8:35 PM instead of AM so he doesn't miss the game.

I'm pretty psyched about this season. Things I'm really watching:

* How Franklin uses Hackenberg. The QBs this group has recruited (and the new depth chart) suggests they want Kaepernick types, not Brady types. Will they know what to do with Hack?

* The offensive line: Will it be any good at all? Keeping an eye on the converted DLs: Dowry (53) and Gaia (72).

* My TV: It seems to be going on the blink. Or the AVR is. Or the HDMI cables are. I've had trouble isolating the problem, but going into HDMI 3 instead of HDMI 1 seems to have settled things. Predict that it will fail again at 8:35 eastern time Saturday. 

I don't completely agree with your QB assessment.  I agree they don't want Brady types.  But I don't think they are looking for guys like Kaepernick either.  I think they just want guys who are not statues.  Hack may resemble Big Ben a lot more this year -- extending plays by moving out of the pocket, but still looking to throw.  I think that's what they want more than an actual runner.  Plus, I'm not convinced O'Connor really got beaten out for #2 as much as they just want to redshirt him.

The O-Line will definitely be interesting.  If you believe Corso, UCF is the best defense we'll face all season.  If the O-Line does its job Saturday, it could be a good sign for the rest of the season. 

Hopefully, 8:35 PM on Saturday, not 8:35 AM.

A name familiar to PSU troubles........

Ex-FBI Director Louis Freeh seriously hurt in car crash

It'll be interesting to see what the cause of the accident was.  It was a late model vehicle  in broad daylight, fair weather, straight stretch of road, no other traffic, and he crossed the center line in the accident.

Blown tire, swerved to miss a deer, some medical condition (heart attack, stroke), etc.  Could be any number of things.

I love my alma mater but for Penn (and CMU for that matter) to trail it badly makes me wonder about the implications for democracy.

Perhaps there are a lot of morans answering the phone.


Seriously, PSU has the most grads in the state -- by a large margin.  If you had been chosen by random, which University would you have chosen?  I know I would have picked PSU -- I'm not familiar enough with the others to give a more honest response.  I know Penn is Ivy League, but does that make it more respectable?  By what criteria? 

Business Insider / CWUR has the seven ranked as follows (national rank -- if I read the table correctly):

Penn -- 11
PSU -- 29
Pitt -- 34
CMU -- 35
Temple -- 136
Villanova -- Not Ranked
IUP -- Not Ranked

EDIT:  I realized last night that I forgot to include Bucknell.  They are Not Ranked as well, so I hope you will forgive my oversight.

I still don't get duqane.

It's their internet style over substance code for Duquesne.

I still don't get it

It's like Rokk always calling the European player Eros instead of Euros -- it's just what they do.  It doesn't have to make sense to us.

Just so you know, you already have a Fantasy Football thread here.   :),3495.25.html

That didn't take you long.  ;)

So......what does it mean?

Big Ten Powerhouse Rutgers and duqane are both BSD memes. Nebrasketball actually is just awesome to say. I believe most of their beat use that hashtag on twitter.
