It’s that time again, readers, and both of you should pay rapt attention to that which is about to follow, for The Nittany Turkey has never failed to predict how a season will go, regardless of whether he gets the wins and losses right. You can read other blogs to get quasi-analytical breakdowns of team strengths and weaknesses, pseudo-scientific statistical formulae, and pretentiously pedantic punditry. Here, we make no such pretenses. The Turkey slings his own brand of irreverent turkey poop, based on what he would do if you were sitting next to him at a sports bar and didn’t ask his opinion. (Remember: opinions are like assholes—we all get to have one and they all stink!)
