I hope I don’t jinx anything, but do I detect that this Penn State team is getting serious about playing football? With the SSMNC game a distinct possibility, is the farting around, partying, pot smoking, and underage drinking giving way to a nose to the grindstone work ethic? Has peer leadership finally gained a firm foothold?
I can’t answer any of these questions myself. However, the evidence suggests that the answers are all affirmative. It’s damn well time these kids realized what a privilege it is to play for Penn State. Maybe it has finally sunk in.
