In checking some fantasy teams I noticed that Penn State is playing the Eastern Illinois Panthers. Is playing Akron, Syracuse, and Temple to start the season so difficult that they needed to slide in Eastern Illinois into the schedule to give themselves a breathers? I normally don't notice one blanket cupcake game on a team's schedule, sometimes I'm even okay with two a year. But when the best team you play in the non-conference is....ahhh.....Temple?....something just isn't right with the system. Last year they played Oregon State, in 2007 and 2006 they played Notre Dame. None of these teams upset Penn State, so why wuss out this year?
Try harder Penn State.
