well that's just, like, your opinion, man
This was briefly discussed when speculation broke that Penn State may be the UTL game next year, but I wanted to pose the question: "Could Penn State become a rivalry game for us?"
Starting next year, Penn State and Michigan will be in the same division. This means from a competitive standpoint, they could be a divisional threat in a few years (I can't imagine the program being down for very long once the sanctions expire).
WIth Notre Dame off the schedule for a while, it seems like Penn State could be a team that fills the void left by the Irish. Looking at the following qualifiers...
- IF Penn State recovers as a program and becomes one of the teams we compete with every year to win our division, and
- IF both teams showcase high profile players, and
- IF the games are exciting games year in and year out
...would that be enough to slowly turn Penn State into a rivalry game? They clearly get up for the games whenever we play them, but most shools do.
What do you guys think?
EDIT: Meant to post this on the board... my bad.
Tampa Bay stole Patrick away from the 49ers' practice squad, signing him to their active roster, citing "a potential need for depth on the offensive line." [LINK] Rather than take one of the two tackles already on their own practice squad they searched farther afield for a guard.He looks happy.
Less happy note about the "potential need": Three Bucs have been diagnosed with MRSA, one of whom is a guard. The first two cases are supposedly not related to one another (different strains of MRSA) and experts have been called in to ensure a safe environment and educate the players (per CBS News article: LINK).
but won't confirm he will play.

There is one game on ESPN at 8:30 PM tonight - Temple (0-5) vs. Cincinnati (3-2). The Bearcats, coming off a 26-20 loss to USF get to play a seemingly hopeless Temple team that is coming off a 30-7 loss to Louisville, and indeed, all of the losses. That being aid, the loss to Louisville is put in context when you consider that the losses to Fordham and Idaho were much closer, right? Probably not.
Chantel Jenning interviewed Taylor Lewan on ESPN - link below
"He talked about Gardner, his offensive line and his moped with ESPN.com in this week's Friday Q&A: "
I know it has been talked about lightly already, but I haven't noticed an entire thread dedicated to the topic. I was watching highlights of these first 5 games, and Funchess has been very impressive with his catching and running ability. We all know this. That leads me to my question...could he move to WR permanently?
After the game, there were a lot of comments suggesting we keep lining him up at wide reciever to create a missmatch here and there. I was wondering what would happen if he made the transition to WR for good. Is he fast enough? Will he stil be effective? Should he lose weight?
Personally, I would love that move. Having a slower Megatron outside isn't a bad option in my eyes at all. His blocking hasn't been exactly stellar, and Jake Butt seems to be holding his own at the position, especially considering he's a true freshman. It has been a relatively slow day, so I thought I'd get some discussion going. What do you guys think?
