Get off the ledge!


I know this one hurts. It should hurt, anytime an opponent walks into your house and gets an ugly win it should hurt. But the sky is not falling. The loss looks alot worse than what some out there may make it out to be.

Consider this:

  1.  The defense looked great, they stood tall, they clung to a lead as best as they could but in the end they still only gave up 13 points against a decent offense. 
  2.  The offense sucked, but it isn't as bad as it looks. The Spread HD is a pass first offense this year. In the rain you cannot expect to complete every single pass. Two of Clark's interceptions were off his reciever's hands. And do not take anything away from Iowa's defense, that is a superb unit.
  3. Maybe Iowa is underratted, and we were overrated. I said to some buddies back in August that PSU was a 2 loss team this year. I still believe that. I didn't think they would lose to Iowa at home, but then again Iowa is easily a top 3 Big Ten team this year. I also didn't expect a monsoon to attack Beaver Stadium at game time (honestly the past two Iowa games, if played in a dome are PSU wins).

Bottom line in my opinion is this, they stunk it up, but then again maybe this was a much needed wake up call. The sky is not falling and the Rose Bowl is still attainable.
