App State Pregame Thread

Yes, it's that time of year again!!! :D 8-)

App State won't be a pushover. However, this won't be Michigan 2007 either.

Penn State 38, App State 17.
41-33.

I think App State is the kind of team that would have extended an end of Paterno era team well into the 2nd half by exploiting quickness advantages and adding wrinkles and basically outcoaching a PSU team that would just come in and try and straight outmuscle them. PSU would win but not as easily as one would expect.

I think App State gets players who have the skill and athleticism to compete at a top level but may lack the physical size.

And this is where I see the CJF era being different - he brings in recruits that have it all - size, speed and skill. And he plays a more aggressive style. App will hang around for a bit while new starters get the feel of things and the D may blow a few assignments but the O will get on top by 3rd QT.

PSU 44
Appy - 19
Wendall : That's very linear Sheriff
Ed Tom : Age will flatten a man Wendall

The great thing is the App State upset over Michigan years ago. Because of it, they are less likely to be taken as lightly for a long time.
