Lol probably my most egregious* spelling mistake I've had.

I just think that to have credibility you should try to not be massively hypocritical.

If the entire fanbase thinks an OSU flipping the bird is disrespectful and classless, then they shouldn't laud their own player flipping the bird in basically the same situation (purely out of frustration). It goes for any fanbase.

A bit early for this? 

Eh okay I'm on the hype train. After what happpened last year, we need to see Higdon run into the end zone for his 6th TD as time expires.

PSU is #14 in the CFP. Let's kick them entirely out.

That last drive was an embarassment. Seemed like Franklin was running a hurry up offense so they could get another TD and make the final score look bad (comparable to Michigan's beat down the year before). He's such a loser. Don Brown is gonna let him have it this year.

I am old enough to remember jackass Woody going for two with a huge lead in the 1969 game and thinking at the time “WTF is he doing? This will come back to bite him.”  And sure enough, the best team ever went down in Ann Arbor 52 weeks later.  I had forgotten that jerk Franklin did essentially the same thing.  Great sports, both of them. Very classy.   Hoping to see a revenge replay, although this PSU team is by no means comparable to those OSU teams and a loss by them would hardly be so stunning.

I went to that shithole of a stadium last year with my son. Had to endure the smell of manure for 4 hours, a bunch of drunk PSU fans (which were kicked out) screaming at us all game, and then enjoyed a 4 hour drive back to Harrisburg because it took 2.5 hours to get out of the field we parked in. I will channel my own vitriol into the TV screen Saturday.

PSU is decent but far from good. They've lost to OSU and MSU. The rest of the resume is....

  • PSU needed OT to survive App St. ( App St. just lost to Georgia Southern by three scores)
  • PSU has wins against (4-5 Indiana, 4-4 Pitt, 2-7 Kent State, 3-5 Illinois)
  • PSU beat Iowa by 6 ( is Iowa any good? They lost to Wisconsin by two scores and their best win is against........Maryland or Northern Illinois who are both 5-3? They've beaten no one of consequence)

Expect a beatdown. Eliminate McSorely's running and its game over. Harbaugh smoked Franklin the first two matchups. No more Saquon. No more Moorhead. 

REVENGE TOUR.

Iowa is not a bad team but every year they have at least one game they throw away due to Kirk's incompetence. They could've won this game. It was one of those games with coaching malpractice on both sides and each team doing everything they could to lose the game. Penn State didn't so much win as Iowa lost it. 

I'm hoping for a beatdown this weekend too. I can't stand Penn State.

Because I live in the belly of the beast I want this game more than any other.  I want Michigan to restore order to the universe and start another streak like the 10-2 one that drove Ped State fans insane.

A blow out will confirm the grumbling that I'm already hearing from their faithful...Franklin is a great recruiter, meh coach, and benefited from an outstanding OC.  In essence, he is Zook 2.0
