Can some please explain to me why in the hell Penn State is getting so much play as a potential Big Ten contender? Correct me if I'm wrong, but they start a totally green QB, don't have a RB, and the Paterno's are still alive and well. What the hell is the basis for this ridiculous hype? The mythical beast that is Derrick Williams?
From Rivals, regarding the MSU, Penn State matchup:
Comment: The undercard to the championship bout could hold more significance if either team is making a push for the league title.
Yeah, they aren't saying that either team is going to make a push for certain, but if they didn't think this was possible, they wouldn't make such an idiotic statement. I mean, they didn't say anything of the sort to describe the IU-Northwestern matchup.
Adding that to the top 25 polls Penn State has been showing up in has me scratching my head. Someone, anyone, enlighten me.
