Re: 2008 Penn State Football Thread
I disagree with the assessment that USC would finish 3rd in the Big 12 South. When they play to potential with motivation (as they did against OSU and PSU), they are as good as any team in the Country. Problem is that Carroll is too loosey-goosey and lackadaisical and they ALWAYS slack off for a game or two a year. That defense is spectacular...I was surprised PSU hung 24 on them, considering they only gave up what? 58 points in the other 12 games they played?
All in all, no surprises...USC was the superior team and it would have taken a Trojan hangover for the Lions to pull the upset. As for the BIg 10, not a great showing so far. Northwestern and MSU surprised because both were clearly overmatched on paper in their bowl games but both put in good appearances. Iowa surprised. Wisconsin puked out bad. Now it's up to OSU to pull the upset.
