Michigan is away and an over rated team. It will be close but we should win by 10 in the end. Wisconsin is at home and I just see our program progressing to where we don't lose these home games like this. The crowd should be electric and our team should feed off of them. I liked JF talking about great verses elite programs. We are really close to being an elite program who takes care of the small sharks (see MU, MSU, and Whisky)

I like this team the rest of the year. I picked a 10-2 record, so I'll stand by that, but wouldn't be surprised if we went 11-1.

I will say, the heat'll get turned up on Franklin next year. I think a lot of folks will expect a playoff. Thank goodness Tommy Stevens stayed...I think he's legit at QB, and he's got a bit of experience. We'll see - for now I'm going to try to enjoy the rest of the season.
If at first you don't succeed, give up. There is no hope for you.

How many years would Tommy have as our starting QB?

He'll have 1 year. Not getting Stevens into games at all hurt the team against OSU and I'm afraid it may have an impact next year too. He needs to get in there and actually run the offense, not just be a gimmick. He was hurt early but could have played against Kent State and Illinois. That said I do think he's a terrific athlete and Clifford looks like the real deal as well. I'm concentrating on this year since there are still at least 8 games to play.

Didn't want to start a new thread on this yet but the Indiana game (@ Indiana) has been scheduled for 3:30pm. That's a good thing since it seems like historically PSU has started off very slow on the road with those noon or 11 am starts.

Good week - I think we've all recovered from that 8 minutes of pounding our collective heads on a hard surface and screaming at the TV the prior week.
