I work for CLASSIFIED during the day and write blog stuff at night. I make jokes On The Web sometimes. I used to take everything Penn State related too seriously, now I just have a Real Good Time.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: Ohio State 2005 was like what my whole life was leading up to. I grew up a Penn State fan, went to Penn State games as a kid, and Penn State ended up being the only school I had applied to. I still remember calling my father with tears in my eyes at the pep rally the night before saying "this is where I was meant to be." Don't take those moments for granted.

Just a general lack of perspective here in my opinion. The first few sentences are totally reasonable. Windsor being out sucked, and overall there were a lot of bad plays. Thompkins was basically status quo. Terrible drops but he did set up a score. The Sanders drop wasn't really relevant in the grand scheme of the game. It just seems like you are looking for things to be mad about. Nothing about the first quarter offensive performance says that anything is done with that drive even if he catches it. Drops were an ongoing problem this season though, if that's what you are driving at.

As far as the defense was concerned, not sure I have an excuse for them. They had an opportunity and didn't execute, even though they were missing their top two DTs on the last drive. They just didn't get it done.

Just try to have some perspective. At the end of the day it's a meaningless. Losing to probably the best Kentucky team ever doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things. There were bright spots for the future. Penn State will be fine.

You aren't wrong, but the games break that way when you are coaching 18-22 year olds. Lots of hope for the future though.
