Yeah, like you’re going to see the same things written wherever you go, so I’m not going to write it here. Joe said it in the press conference Tuesday: Michigan is better than they were against Toledo and they played both Notre Dame and Wisconsin tough. So, don’t be looking for a walkover on Saturday. Mind you, I’ll be happy if that’s the way it plays out, but I want you all to be a little worried about this one. Moreover, I want the team to be a little worried about this one. Nobody better be looking ahead to Ohio State with the intent of mailing this one in.
I do think that the PSU offense can overwhelm Michigan’s defense, while Penn State’s defense can shut down Michigan’s erratic offense. I hope it’s a Wisconsin style blowout, but we won’t know that until four quarters are played on Saturday.
I don’t have my usual research tools with me here in Pennsylvania, so I won’t be going into great detail with who’s who on both sides of the ball. You can get that elsewhere.You’ll just get the usual bullshit here.
I’m going to enjoy Homecoming weekend and then maybe I’ll recap it for you. I’ll be in State College tomorrow. Dinner at Spatz tomorrow evening—hopefully, with a table next to the windows so we can watch the homecoming parade down College Avenue. Shacking up in the usual fleabag motel with my friends Joe & Judy. Crashin’ tailgates. The game on Saturday. The celebration on Saturday night—it has been promised that if the Nittany Lions win, we geezers might even stay up ’til 9:30. It don’t git no better’n this.
So, we’ll skip directly to the Official Turkey Poop Prediction, and I won’t even digress before launching into its pseudo-scientific projection. Current spread is Penn State – 24½ with an over/under of 47. That suggests a final score of 36-11. This Turkey is thinking that the gamblers have this one pegged. Penn State 37, Michigan 10.
