They did not intend to have this soft of a schedule, I can guarantee you that. The combination of losing a key week of games because of the Big Ten December games and many teams simply not being interested in playing against Penn State worked against them. They try to play in Philadelphia every year. That they have no game there this year should tell you all you need to know about how unwilling teams are to play ball with this program.

And I want to re-watch some of the tape, but I do not recall there being a tremendous number of wide open looks from three for NC State. They were throwing everything in last night. If you're going to have a problem with the coaching staff for last night, I would look at holding off on the press for far too long.

If your sole criteria for a coach is "must be as good or better than Nick Saban and Urban Meyer," your life as a college football fan is going to be a hellscape forever.

I wouldn't normally bring it up ... but since the gauntlet has been thrown down, the refereeing in that game clearly favored Iowa. There was a 5-minute stretch early in the second half (I believe starting with the Haley interception) where they blew call after call in Iowa's favor.
