"The Lord smiles upon a coach with two defensive tackles"

I am beginning to take a liking to this new coaching staff. They have not played a game, but they are competing at a very high level where it counts, in recruiting. Also, there is finally a...

Recruiting is a Crapshoot....Back to the Future this Wednesday in 2010!

Credit ESPN.COM's Adam Rittenberg for an interesting article on the 2010 B1G TEN Signing Day results. http://espn.go.com/blog/bigten/post/_/id/95234/how-did-b1gs-top-2010-recruits-pan-out Some...

Finally, PSU gets a break!

Blake Bortles watched his coach beat the Louisville Coach, who went pro, and the Baylor coach, who also is getting a better job, so " SHOW ME THE MONEY" has taken it's toll. Go State!

If Idiots had wings, Harrisburg's Patriot News would be an Airport!

A Patriot News "reporter" baited Coach O'Brien with imaginary, inflammatory criticisms ascribing them to an obscure, non-existent "Paterno Faction". With the intention of substituting...

Bowling with Losers

With Minnesota's loss to Syracuse, the B1G has begun another bowl season, and the expected results are more of the same. The B1G has one team, IOWA, with a winning bowl record, since PSU can't...

The $8 Deep-Dish Pepperoni Bowl

Anyone else relishing the fact that a pathetic 6-6 Pitt Panther team gets to enjoy a bowl game in luxuriant Detroit, in front of dozens of Panther Fanatics, whilst getting the crap beat out of them...

Hack ranked #110 QB Ratings!

ESPN's QB Rating System has PSU's QB Christian Hackenberg ranked among the worst in the country, 110 out of 133! Nowhere to go but up, I guess.

Here's the thing....Coach BO'B needs my advice.

OK, it is becoming obvious that sanctions, and the lack of experienced manpower, is starting to snowball, and causing increased grief for the PSU football program. Knee-jerk reactions calling for...

Minnesota Week In BSD History. Cairo trumps all with Drafi Deutcher!

Oh, sweet Krishna, it is finally here, after several years of absence. Minnesota Week! I am quite certain that most BSD Old Timers will recall the most memorable post in BSD History.......Cairo's...

Watch out for this guy on Saturday!

Looks Nate's dad is like a world-class Soccer-Mom bad actor.

Cheer Up! Get Ready. The 'Bottom Feeders' are coming to town this weekend.

No time for regrets this week, and this PSU squad should see better times with the remaining schedule being games where they should be more than competitive in this stinking conference that they...

Uncertainty is Certain this Saturday

Vegas opened the book with a nationally-ranked 5-0 Wolverines squad being a one-point favorite visiting a poorly-performing Nittany Lion squad this Homecoming weekend. "Not so fast, my friend"...

UCF 7 point dog to South Carolina?

Central Florida is getting some respect from bettors as Las Vegas oddsmakers have South Carolina a 7 point favorite at UCF this weekend. That point spread is not that great, considering Spurrier's team was considered a contender for the SEC east early in the year. This is one game I will be watching this weekend.

Four Weeks of Optimistic Delirium or Fear and Loathing, What's the Difference?

Does being optimistic at this point in the season equate to being delirious? I had this same feeling last year, dealing with the loss to Tyler Tettleton and Ohio, rationalizing that maybe Ohio...

Is anyone else concerned about the O-Line?

The Penn State Nittany Lions are dead last in third-down conversions in the FBS. DEAD LAST. Although PSU has enough playmakers to win against their non-conference slate, it will be tough to get...

O'Leary, O'Brien, O'Beng, O'Boy!

Three major components of a college football team's Power Rating are Talent, Coaching, and Experience. Based upon these parameters, the Nittany Lions should handily cover the 6 point spread this...

Hackenberg's QBR 60th after Week 1!

ESPN's Quarterback Rating System has PSU's Hackenberg at 60th place with a QBR of 60.8 after week 1.

Is anyone else going to watch every minute of the Pitt Beatdown Tonight?

At least two bets can be made about this matchup that might keep Nitwits interested in this game... 1) Over/Under on attendance? My guess is that they might reach 15,000, with 5,000 Florida State...

The Stars Will Shine in New Jersey

Three major components of the Power Rating for a college football team are coaching, talent and experience. Based upon this assumption, Penn State should clobber Syracuse next Saturday. COACHING ...

The NCAA Just Keeps Screwing the Pooch!

One day, this organization will cease to exist. And I will be there, with my dogs, at the gravesite, where we can all feel the relief.

Three Deep Thoughts with less than Two Weeks To Kickoff

1) You know it is football season when you turn on the TV and the Big Ten Network is the first channel that you check, no matter what time of day it is. Love watching the three stooges going from...

Johnny Football Signing Autographs for Cash is a Crime?

Another Bullcrap NCAA rule. Manziel's autograph is surely worth some bucks, and he should be allowed to sign for cash. Sorry folks, he is a Heisman Trophy winner. The NCAA sure gets enough publicity from this award, and ESPN sure makes a fortune, and TA&M is raking in the dough, but Johnny Football is breaking the rules. STOP THIS MADNESS! Big Time Football....lose the NCAA as soon as possible.

A Sober Fanpost?

Although the world is fascinated with the non-demise-yet of Penn State Football, with Bill O'Brien garnering most of the available coach-of-the-year awards for an 8-4 season in 2013, there seems to...

Lunatic Emmert in Maisel 3-Point Stance

Ivan Maisel matter-of-factly noted Mark Emmert's "poor judgement' in handling the Penn State Case. First time I have seen this type of off-the-cuff acknowledgement that the NCAA screwed up with the PSU situation.

Matt McGloin signs with Raiders!

Oakland. It will be interesting to see what happens.
