Springtime for BSD and PSU fanatics........11 and One? How about it!

The B1G Scheduling Gods have finally smiled on Happy Valley. BOB is going to get plenty of opportunities to develop this team for the two late-season tough games. Plus, the highest-rated B1G teams, Michigan State and Michigan, are not on the schedule.

The NFL draft results showed the team lost numbers but did not lose irreplaceable quality with last year's graduating class. Penn State will have a speedy and talented roster, with plenty of experience at the skill positions. One very important PSU advantage is the very-experienced Matt McGloin, who moves the sticks better than any of PSU's B1G opponents's QBs.

PSU will be double digit favorites against most of the schedule, including the Ohio State Game at home, and will be a favorite in all games next year, except for a tough contest at Nebraska, and a tossup with Wisconsin at home.

I suggest that anything less than 10-2 will be a disappointing season, and 11-1 is a possibility.

Of course, there will be a few maniacs who predict 12-0 before PSU wins it's bowl game, but I am not one of those crazies.

Here are the Sagarin Springtime reads on PSU versus this less-than-daunting schedule.

Ohio -11.8

At Virginia -3.9

Navy -18.3

Temple -12.8

at Illinois -4.4

Northwestern -13.6

at Iowa -2.4

Ohio State -11.1

at Purdue -5.4

at Nebraska 4.6

Indiana -29.6

Wisconsin 1.6

For The Glory,

Can't wait to get started.
