PSU is the consensus 2nd best team in the Big Ten, which is like being the second best girl in a donkey show in Tijuana. Nonetheless, someone from that terrible conference will get a BCS bid, and PSU hopes it will be them.

They lost their entire secondary and both ends. I remember hearing somewhere that they lost like 16 starters. I can't fathom how a team can be picked to be 2nd best in their conference losing that many guys. Oh wait, yeah I can, it's the Big Ten. :shrug:.

Fortunately for Penn State, their schedule is an absolute abomination.

Loss to Ohio State appears probable.

Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa, and Michigan State could challenge. Remember that Iowa is the team that beat PSU last second last year to (thankfully) knock them out of contention for the BCS title game. College football fans will forever thank Kirk Ferentz for that.

I see PSU being very mediocre this year, but putting up a decent record due to a creampuff schedule. Loss to tOSU. Two conference losses. 9-3 and a bowl embarassment at the hands of the #3 or #4 team from the Big XII or SEC. There are not enough Pounders in the world for this team to be a real contender.

It would not surprise me one bit to see PSU loose four games, but I think that three is the safe bet. Knowing them, they go undefeated and get a trip to the Rose Bowl for a 40 point loss to SC.
