Black Shoe Podcast - Eastern Michigan vs. Penn State - Episode 1.4

Adam, Cari and Dan are back after Penn State's neutral site win against the Syracuse Orange! The three BSDers break down the game from the press box, the stands, and TV screen, talk about the performances of Christian Hackenberg, Allen Robinson, and the rest of the Nittany Lions, and look ahead to this coming week's home opener against the Eastern Michigan Eagles.

It's once again Game Week on the Black Shoe Podcast, as we're just three days away from Penn State's return home to Beaver Stadium.

In BSP episode four, Cari Greene and Dan Vecellio join me on Blog Talk Radio to discuss all of the storylines leading into the home opener against the Eagles of Eastern Michigan. Some fun things to take note of:

  • The debate rages over Cracker Barrel versus Waffle House for breakfast. Choose wisely and vote below!

  • How was the atmosphere at MetLife Stadium last weekend? Each of us has a distinct view - the press box, the stands, and in front of a television screen.

  • How impressive was Christian Hackenberg? How did his performance compare to two other top rated freshmen, Matt Barkley and Matthew Stafford, in their first starts?

  • Allen Robinson changes the complexion of the offense entirely. Are we concerned about the running game after it struggled against the Orange?

  • Congratulations to Sam Ficken on a fantastic, All-Big Ten caliber week! How effective was special teams overall?

  • Did John Butler's defense live up to everyone's expectations on its first time out?

  • Dan, Cari and I preview and make our "official" predictions for this weekend's game against Eastern Michigan. Can the Nittany Lions cover a 23 point spread?

  • Does Cari swear on the podcast? You be the judge . . .
