OT / Re: Football: Northwestern thread
« on: Today at 02:53 PM »
NW only amassed 280-some yards of total offense against D-1AA Western Illinois.  WIU's QB outgained NW alone.

PSU has the #1 ranked rush defense in the country.  It has forced more 0 or less yard runs (36; 48 if you include sacks) than has allowed 5+ yard runs (22).

The real question is, why were so many people anxious to let the world know she said that?

They're actually going to show the score on the scoreboard this week.  What a concept!

Temple only has 1 2015 commit, a 4-star shooting guard.

I'm not sure PSU has 6 OL to use

Isn't there an extra DL wandering around somewhere at practice that we could throw a pinnie at? :)


They already did that.  A starting guard and the 6th OL who otherwise would be a starter, but has a wrist injury that needs surgery.

The get much more benefit from working camps than they would playing a game down there.

IMO, the concept of a rivalry is dead.  With today's instant access to everything, everyone's a rival, so no one is a rival.

Sure, there are some "grandfathered" rivalries that will stay as such.  But there will never be any new rivalries, no matter how hard one team or a conference wants there to be one.

The Rutgers Football facebook account also included a picture with a guy in a Ped State shirt in their photo gallery

I read some NJ.com stuff this morning. I feel bad for their QB. It seems like they are putting the loss entirely on him.

I think Rutgers should be proud of their first Big Ten game. The fans showed up. The team played a tough football for 60 minutes. Looked like a fantastic atmosphere on campus and in the stadium. They should look at last night as a big positive instead of just looking at the final score. The two honorary captains are proof that football is just a game. Rutgers is part of the second best academic conference there is. Regardless of the score, they are now more big time and more relevant than they were last week.

Yep, they should be proud



(Awkwardly enough, that picture was once the logo for a Virginia pediatric medical center.)

And the ammo in that smoking gun is surely heavily based on what McQueary told them.

1) The entire country had access to Joe Paterno's testimony. You're absolutely 100% delusional if you think there was anything that Penn State could have done to adequately diffuse the situation that didn't involve accepting some responsibility.


When was that testimony released?  Several months after all hell broke loose?

I believe it is far more likely that the administration was forced into accepting the Freeh Report because of public pressure - the very same pressure that is on the NFL right now.


Which would be tangible if the BOT didn't accept the Freeh Report before even reading it or discussing it.

Remember McQueary's alleged gambling habits were linked to that game

You're probably right.  Coach Joe Crispin stopping by?

What's interesting there is that McQueary's dad and Schultz were at a minimum business acquaintances.  So it's not like McQueary's knowledge of Schultz's role was in a vacuum.

In my world, an allegation of a sex crime should be investigated by the proper authorities, i.e. the police or child services, etc., never by an athletic director or a vice president for finance and business.


Now, if we only knew what actually was alleged.
