Black Shoe Podcast - Penn State vs. Kent State - Episode 1.6

Matthew O'Haren-USA TODAY Sports

Adam, Cari and Dan are here with all of the news about Penn State's tough loss to the UCF Knights. The three BSDers break down the defensive performance from Saturday night, the atmosphere at Beaver Stadium, and what (if anything) this portends for the Big Ten season. As always, our hosts look ahead to this weekend's upcoming MACrifice against the Kent State Golden Flashes, and take a spin around the national college football scene.

For the fourth time this season, its Game Week on the #BlackShoePodcast, as we're readying ourselves for one more out of conference opponent.

In BSP episode six, Cari Greene and Dan Vecellio join me on Blog Talk Radio to discuss all of the storylines leading into this Saturday's MACrifice against the Golden Flashes of Kent State University. Some fun things to take note of:

  • #TROUBLE - Apparently this podcast is rated "explicit" on iTunes. Where's Cari's first venture into troubling language? Listen and find out!

  • More #trouble, this time defensively. What the happened against the Knights and how can it be fixed?

  • In repetitive news, Christian Hackenberg was once again impressive and Allen Robinson is a beast.

  • Is this the kind of game we can expect to see more of in the Bill O'Brien era? Is this the way the team responds to the limitations placed on it by the sanctions? Does that mean Penn State will lose its traditional defensive identity?

  • Dan, Cari and I preview and make our "official" predictions for this weekend's game against Kent State. Can the Nittany Lions cover the 20.5 point spread? What about the over/under (currently 54 points)?

  • We keep talking about UCF because, frankly, there isn't much exciting discussion to be had about the Golden Flashes.

  • A look at last Saturday's big games, and the officiating in Michigan/Akron and Wisconsin/Arizona State.
So nice that we've now done it twice! All that and more on ANOTHER epic 90 minute version of the #BlackShoePodcast!
