Yep.  I didn't see 8-4.   Nor do I see it next year.  Or the year after.

They got a big lift from the whole conference being way down.  Let's not forget they opened with losses to Ohio and Virginia.  That being said, Bill O'Brien still did a heck of a job.   I live a couple hours from State College and I also think under different circumstances you'd be hearing a lot more talk about how this season validated those who had been saying for years that Paterno's refusal to leave was holding the program back, especially on the offensive side of the football.

It's certainly not roses from here on out though - the scholarship limits get worse, current players can still transfer without penalty until the start of next preseason, and I while I expect he stays, I think the odds of O'Brien going back to the NFL are something > 0.

Is it just me or does anyone else still seeing Penn State having success feel bad about it? I know Paterno is dead, Sandusky will rot in hell, I mean jail, and anyone associated with the program is gone but something just doesn't feel right. Again, it's not free cars and tattoos.

D*mn, I hate to ever agree with Mike on anything, but as someone who lives in PA, I agree. I see far, far too many Penn State supporters who are seeing their current success as some kind of payback for the sanctions. Sure none of the current kids, or even staff, had anything to do with all the Jerry stuff, but it seems to have all been too easily forgotten by on-field success. H*ll, some people are still refusing to admit Joe knew and are trying to get his statue back. People that blinded and insensitive should have no program to enjoy.

Maybe you noticed I'm dead? I'm dead and I'm burning in HELL. I'm glad you weren't around in WWII. The japs and krautheads kids and even some of their current politicians had nothing to do with the Adolph/Tojo stuff, but it seems to all have been too easily forgotten by their global resurgence. Hell..some people refuse to admit these people were criminal and wrong. People that blinded and insensitive should have no country to enjoy.

It's good to see we agree and you are me.
