I've been looking forwards to this week's game ever since the final whistle of the destruction of Wisconsin.
I admit it; I was the one looking past UM; sorry about that.
Anyway, without further ado, a list of ten things I'd like to see:
I’d like to see Royster with 200 rushing yards;
-- but I’d settle for him maintaining his YPC average.
I’d like to never hear or read Chris Wells’ nickname again;
-- but I’d settle for seeing him shut down by the PSU defense.
I’d like to see Clark with 300 yards total offense;
-- but I’d settle for seeing the Clark Trophy pose again after a TD against Ohio State.
I’d like to see Maybin sack Pyror and force a fumble;
-- but I’d settle for Maybin sacking him for 20 yard loss.
I’d like to see Williams take the opening kick-off to the house;
-- but settle for him not fumbling any kick returns.
I’d like to see Laurinaitis pancaked repeatedly;
-- but I’d settle for watching him jump on the pile to pad his stats eight to ten yards downfield.
I’d like to see Evans, Maybin, Odrick, Gains, Hull, Bowman, Mauti, Astorino, Scirrotto, Davis, and the rest of the defense share Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week award;
-- but I’d settle for Hull having a good day.
I’d like to see Pryor in the post-game interview apologizing to the Ohio State boosters who have been "incredibly generous and the reason I came to the University of Ohio State;"
-- but I’d settle for seeing a post-game interview with the winning QB, Daryll Clark.
I’d like to see PSU win the MNC;
-- but I’d settle for an undefeated season and a bowl victory.
I’d like to see at the end of the game, a choir of angels descending from heaven and saying to Joe Paterno, "you have served so well we hearby grant you a 43 year contract extension." Then, after the angels disappear in a flash of light like the explosion of a thousand suns, when everyone’s vision begins to clear they see Joe as he was at 39 years of age just like his first season as head coach;
-- but I’d settle for Joe getting his hip fixed in the off season and seeing him run out the tunnel again in 2009.
