What they are saying about Ohio State vs Penn State

Just thought we would do a little poking around the net and see what the nation is saying about the big game in Happy Valley this Saturday. Let’s start with those close to Penn State.

50 Yard Lion wrote a clever little song. Isn’t that nice.

Black Shoe Diaries thinks the player to watch out for is Brian Robiskie.

He has the ability to get behind our secondary. Fortunately they don’t have Troy Smith to run around for 30 seconds giving him a chance to get open.

There is no name on my jersey, which by the way is a great name for a Penn State blog, seems to be more concerned about the noise in the stadium, and the serious lack of port-a-potties. Let me say that the lack of places to relieve yourself will be a bigger problem than they anticipate because of the late kick-off. (UPDATE- apparently the name of the blog is for the glory of old state. Which is a little disappointing, but go there and tell me which name is more prominent…)

In the national media, Bruce Hooley writes there was a time when Jim Tressel wanted to coach for Joe Paterno. This is worth a look.

Yahoo sports has perhaps the most balanced analysis of the game.

Perhaps the article that is sure to get Buckeye fans fired up is from Fox Sports, which pleads…

For the sake of the national championship game, let’s all hope Ohio State loses to one of its weak sisters in the Big Ten in the next month. Because as things stand, it sure looks like we’re destined to watch a repeat of last season’s BCS championship game – top-ranked Ohio State getting blown out by a much more complete team.

Yep. Don Borst is the man that penned it. But let’s be honest, isn’t that the sentiment around the country? Personally, I don’t care what Don Borst wants. If the Buckeyes win the Big Ten, and they will have to go undefeated to do so, then they deserve the same respect given to the winners of the SEC or the Pac 10. If they are undefeated they will play for the title. And if they finish the job, I don’t want to see you, Mr. Borst try and boost your readership with a dynasty article. You are hereby on notice.

One response to “What they are saying about Ohio State vs Penn State

  1. I agree that a team like LSU could be an unfavorable matchup for us, but articles like that Fox Sports article are tough to swallow. How does that even qualify as journalism? Remember when OSU was 11 point underdogs to Miami? How did that game turn out? But whatever….let everyone keep overlooking OSU. We tend to play our best when under the radar.
