Get a Grip

Might as well at this point. I'm extremely proud of O'Korn and the performance that he turned in tonight, he was put in a very tough position and did about as well as anybody could expect, but he's got no future upside at this point.

Peters is going to be one of the two (or three, depending on the Speight situation) competing for the starting quarterback spot next year, and it will be a much stronger team. Getting him experience now could mean the difference between a win or a loss in a close game next year, assuming he gets the nod.

Thanks for this!!! We really need it.

Hug your kids and/or significant others. Get a burger! Take care of yourselves. It's a game and it's fun and important, but we're all here and alive and get to love the hell out of this university!

I mean, here's the bottom line.  Losing sucks, yes.  But our program has an unbroken record of 100% opposition to child rape.  PSU does not - they publicly, repeatedly honor Joe Paterno, who is KNOWN to have covered up child rape for nearly 40 years - i.e. most of his adult life.  They have not apologized, they have not repented.  They continue to celebrate him.

Never, never forget.  Never pretend they are just another team or just another rival.  They are evil people who excuse evil, defend evil, and cover up evil.  If I live to be 100, I will never forget and I will never forgive, not until they repent.

We may be frustrated by losing, but we still have our souls.  That gives me comfort tonight.

I know a guy.  Has trouble sleeping after watching a speed back in iso against a solid, but slower LB.  Also has trouble sleeping after watching play action on 4th and 11 when down 3 scores.  I could continue.

He'd really like to take two aspirin (or 5ths of bourbon) and wake-up in time for kick-off 9/1/2018 on the hopes of a competent set of WRs and QB.  Got any suggestions?

Currently on the back porch nursing a cigar and a final glass of wine. I am finding my center again as I normally do with drinking and occasionally smoking. I don't know that I would be able to do it otherwise after a game like this. Well, modding this place helps me too as I realize there are people who clearly need to smoke more and drink more.
