The Nittany Lions have returned from Dublin with a last second victory and are finally back in the friendly confines of Beaver Stadium for the 2014 home opener against the Akron Zips! Kickoff is at noon ET on ABC/ESPN2, but we start our discussion today. This week on the #BlackShoePodcast, Adam (@AdamCollyer), Cari (@NotCarlotta), and Bill (@bflip33) are in the virtual studio in Brooklyn bantering about the takeaways from the game against UCF, Cari's Ireland experience, and what to expect this weekend against Terry Bowden's squad. We break that all down this week on Blog Talk Radio.
Some fun items to note:
- Cari had a great time in Dublin, and we discuss her experience in depth
- Christian Hackenberg is a star, but should we not get too carried away just yet? Also, where does the running game factor in the rest of the way?
- The defense was pretty good. What would the game have looked like if Justin Holman started for UCF? How would we have adjusted?
- What can we expect this weekend against Akron? Are we in for a bit of a let down?
Plus, Bill and I preview next week's show, in which two Jersey born and bred natives lay into Big Ten Powerhouse Rutgers! All this and much more on this week's episode of the #BSP!
