Default Calling All Penn State Fans!!!

Alabama fan here and I've got a question. How do you like your chances in Tuscaloosa Alabama on Sept. 11th?

I've got it at 32-20, the good guys of course!

There's certainly a bit of uncertainty in Tuscaloosa with the best offensive and best defensive players possibly not being available for the game (Marcel Dareus & Mark Ingram). However given depth it looks like Alabama should still pull this out. I've been saying for months the score would be Bama 30-35 & PSU 17-24. This could be changing a little bit though. PSU has to win on the road with questions at OT & apparently starting a true freshman at QB. However Alabama which plays 5 DBs the majority of the time will have 4 new DBs in those 5 spots, this is the soft belly of this Alabama Team. That and having to replace all the key special teams players; PR, KR, kicker, & punter. Replacing the KR & PR worry me much less than kicker & punter. I don't expect this to come back to haunt the team unless the chips are down and a freshman kicker has to make a kick to win a game... just don't know how that's gonna go!

So there are lots of questions on both sides. Both Ds should be top 15 units but Bama gets the edge because of the offensive side of the ball and in general how the chips are falling with a PSU having a new QB on the road in a tough environment against a very complex defense. Then again there's a reason they play the games!

Schlante & Roll Tide,
Phillip

Well, if there's any doubt why I hate Penn State, you guys have certainly proven it.

Who else is going to be attending the game? I know I will! Thank you student tickets, 35$ total for every home game. Lets just hope this season goes as well as last year.

I'll be at the game in November when you roll into C-BUS. Prepare early - it may be a LONG day for the Nittany Lione and Joe Pa!!
