Wisconsin needs a win at Penn State to avoid the BIG stumble

Anytime the Wisconsin Badgers lose a couple of games at Camp Randall, it’s probably not a very good year. This year is one of those years and yet they still have a chance to turn it around with a win in next week’s Big Ten Championship.

Before they embark to Indianapolis, they travel to Happy Valley to take on a surprising Penn State team on an emotional day for their senior class. Even though it could be the toughest environment the Badgers play in all year, they need this game to avoid stumbling into the BIG Game.

Penn St WR Who Punched Starting QB Not Making Bowl Trip

penn-st.-logo

The Penn State Nittany Lions will be without four players for its TicketCity Bowl game against Houston on New Year’s Day, the only one you’ve heard of is wide receiver Curtis Drake, who beat up starting QB Matt McGloin a week or so ago.

McGloin has thrown 1,571 yards, 8 TDs and 5 INTs this season, completing 54% of his passes, but throwing for a miniscule 6.8 yards per attempt. Drake has just 5 catches for 102 yards and a TD on the season. Coach Tom Bradley said Drake is missing the game, played in the historic Cotton Bowl in Dallas, for “personal reasons.” Whatever that means.

McGloin himself is still questionable after not practicing today.

Joe Paterno was released from the hospital yesterday as he continues his rehabilitation from his broken pelvis. He’s also continuing treatment for lung cancer.

Penn St. QB Beaten up by Wide Receiver Teammate

Penn State starting QB Matt McGloin‘s Twitter account was just deleted. After he claimed it was hacked earlier. Why is this interesting?

Because rumors are that he got beat up tonight by his own teammate, WR Curtis Drake.

And unlike what happened in the Jerry Sandusky shower scene witnessed by Mike McQueary, police were called to the scene ASAP.

Which means this really must have been a bad scuffle.

Penn State Gets Gift Win From Pathetic Illinois’ Special Teams, Offense

It was one of the ugliest college football games of all time. Certainly one of the ugliest Big Ten games. Not a good showcase of the conference on ABC’s national game. (The national media are going to have a field day ripping the conference after this one). Call it the football equivalent of the infamous 38-33 college basketball game played by these two schools in Champaign 2009.

It was absolutely pathetic on all levels how Illinois (6-3, 2-3 in league play) handed Penn State and Joe Paterno his record breaking 409th win. They completely gave it away.

The Illini offense and special teams were a sick joke in their inability to close the game today, and #19 Penn State (8-1 overall, 5-0 in conference) is now the only remaining unbeaten team in the Big Ten. Who’d have guessed that?

If you like passing and hate punting, this was NOT the game for you. The passing yards in the box score were just ridiculously bad. And you can’t blame it on the weather. Because the snow was only a factor in the first half.

Penn State, Matt McGloin is Your Quarterback, Accept That Already!

I’m a firm believer that when you say you have two #1 quarterbacks, you really have none. And the Penn St. Nittany Lions claim they have two number ones, even though it’s PAINFULLY obvious they have a clear cut #1 and clear cut #2. Matt McGloin IS your QB1, Rob Bolden is your QB2.

Whether you admit it or not.

Fresh off their historical win at Northwestern, where McGloin was a very efficient 17-26 for 192 yards, 2 TDs and no picks, Joe Paterno had this to say:

“No, no they’ll be days when Bolden will play, you guys- we won the game WE WON THE GAME!”

So is Matt McGloin the starting QB?

“Who knows? You guys are the experts,” he responded.

Thanks! I try…..
