Yeah yeah, sanctions, blah blah blah blah.
I'm sick of excuses. These guys look similar to the Florida A&M pass coverage. I'm no Paterno-ite. I'm no O'Brien-ite. I'm a Penn State fan who watches about 10-11 games a week. The defense is not physical, they are not fast and they are not in position.
Btw, PSU has conceded more than 55 points only once since 1899 - a 1944 game to Navy. (The 1899 one was a 67-3 defeat to the Duquesne Athletic Club.) So John Butler will have delivered us the worst defeat in at least 69 years, if not 114. Results speak for themselves.
Manage expectations. Spin it. Blame Emmert. I'm sick of excuses - the bottom line is this defense, irrespective of its shortcomings, is not well coached. This is Manny Diaz-esque. A post-game firing is richly deserved.
