I am having a hard time getting excited for this game. In 2008 when we won the Big10, I was stoked for a Rose Bowl birth against USC. Knew it would be a monumental task with tons of upside.
I don't see much upside from this game. I've already seen articles entitled "CFP Also-ran PSU slated for Rose Bowl" and it's like a gut punch.
The only real possible positive is us beating the hell out of the Trojans (possible but unlikely) and Washington getting annihilated by Bama (possible and likely). It just seems again, one team gets the benefit of the doubt while we take one to the chops. I hate that our rivals (OSU and all 7 fans that care about Pitt) get to gloat that they got one over on PSU. Even when we beat the Buckeyes we lose. Ugh, it's so damn depressing.
Don't blame me, I didn't vote for this clown.
