UNIVERSITY PARK, PA, November 11 — The Nittany Lions (7–4, 4–3 Big Ten) blanked the hapless Temple Owls (1–9) by the biggest margin this season, 47–0. Temple is so bad that this Turkey cannot extrapolate anything on the basis of this game. Whether the Lions can beat Michigan State next week is still a big question.
One thing is for sure: PSU hasn’t solved any of its offensive problems. Morelli still stares down receivers and gets intercepted. The offensive line still sucks. Receivers still drop catchable balls. The offensive unit still stalls in the red zone, even against the worst damn defenses in organized football. Today, they still could convert only five of thirteen third downs. Today, they still turned the ball over twice. They still look out of sync, as if this were September, not November. So, we cannot glean much from this game other than business as usual for the damn offense.
