Looking forward to the season myself. There's nothing like college football
Never attended Penn State or even went away to college. My daughter will be a junior this year so you can say Im living it through her
The effects of the sanctions really showed last year. The offensive line had major issues putting together a running game and keeping defensive lineman off Hackenberg. Golden Boy was sacked 44 times last season. An average of about 4 times per game.
This year they will have their full allotment of scholarships.
Games I'm looking forward to:
Last year was their first year in the Big 10 and Penn State was their first interconference game.
To say that Penn State fans were treated badly at Rutgers was an understatement. Assaults were even reported. Rutger's President did release a formal apology.
This year its in Happy Valley. Hope all goes well
Also their first year in the Big10. Maryland players refused to shake hands at the coin toss which caused a stir of course. Maryland President released a formal apology.
Hoping for a major beatdown in this game
3) Ohio State
What can you say when their 3rd string quarterback take them to and wins the Championship.
The Lions did give then all they could handle last year at State College taking them into double OT.
Two very questionable calls/ no calls might have swayed things differntlyhttp://onwardstate.com/2015/08/01/big-ten-coordinator-of-officials-admits-officiating-mistakes-in-penn-state-ohio-state-game/
White Out game. One of the toughest venues to play at least for these OSU playershttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWlhr7Dh3jQ
last years game between the two was the worst game I've seen in a while. It wasnt a matter of who was the better team but who was the worst. We'll see what Jim Harbaugh put together.
Still have a huge smile from the 4 OT win in 2013https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgSqzckZg-4
I have tickets for that game
