Sometimes I love my computer, like when it says that PSU is #15 for example. Other times I hate my computer, like when it locks up, or when it barfs at a 12 point loss to the Boilermakers (against it's predicted spread) and placesTemple, at 84.4, a power rating that would put them 4th in the B1G, above Nebraska, PSU, OSU, Illinois, Iowa, etc.
The remainder of the season, from the pont of view of October 15 is ciphered out for us:
PSU by 12 at Northwestern
PSU by 7.4 over Illinois
PSU by 2.1 over Nebraska
OSU by 2.0 over PSU
WIS by 18.7 over PSU
The inability to kill Purdue as projected, while giving up a half-dozen big plays on offense, defense, and special teams, has raised the eyebrows of many of our good PSU diehards, and leads to several questions.
Will Norlthwestern being a 12 point dog really mean a PUSH on this game?
Will the over-under in the Shoe be 13 points?
Does the fact that Auburn and Florida played 5 quarterbacks between them by the middle of the 3rd Quarter in a tight game mean that JoePa is conservative by only playing two?
Time for pipe-dreams of a B1G Championship.
