It was weird....One could predict the outcome midway through Q3, but not the painful process.It was that painful. I mean just watching it. The loss was anti-climactic. We were all numb.
Correction, my friend. Penn State is a team full of good athletes. But they are not a good team. There is a difference.Shame, this was a good team. Punched a little above their weight class at times, but injuries killed it. Coaching is what it is, CJF and Co. can recruit and put guys in the league, but in-game adjustments are not their thing.
Woeful offense vs. a defense not ranked in the top 100. Ranked #102 allowing 427.9 yards per fame. We got 1/2 of that. And 1/7 on OT plays. Playing at home, not bothered by crowd noise. That's how you lose.I need someone to blame for this loss. I choose Yurcich. How do you score 18 points in four quarters, plus nine overtimes, against a 2-5 team?
Don't be so critical. We did succeed once. 1/7 is not bad vs a #102 ranked defense.Agree. Probably the most damaging loss in memory.
For the number of OTs that occurred, it will be replayed over and over again on national TV highlight shows for years to come.
Fluke plays, penalties, turnovers aside. Fair or not, we will be viewed as the team that could not line up and put away a conference bottom-feeder given nine tries at it.
