Hot takes here, get your hot takes! @RealPennLive has some doozies from the comments section today. Let's Adam Richman this and work our way up from mild to five-alarm habanero:

Ok this is obviously a light-hearted dig, let's kick it up a notch.

Meh, everyone knows Joe wore Big Dog boxers when he was still on the sideline. Gotta be able to breathe in those khakis. Next!

Ooh, spelling errors and displaced memories of a 63-14 beatdown! Now we're cooking. What else ya got?

someone get me some milk and a wet wipe, I don't wanna get any takes in my eyes

The internet (except for blackshoediaries.com) should be shut off in Pennsylvania the day after Penn State games.

Beat roundup

PennLive's Greg Pickel revisits the keys to the game, and his colleague David Jones reminds everyone that Ohio State is just a flat-out better team and the better team usually wins in the end.

StateCollege.com's Ben Jones hands out his grades for Penn State, and they ain't great.

Audrey Snyder of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette provides moments from the post-game locker room in video form as well as an in-depth breakdown of the game's major events.

Onward State's Doug Leeson: Penn State can't hang with the no. 1 team, and that's fine.

Is it fair to pin this loss on Christian Hackenberg? It's not unreasonable, says Lions247's Jeff Rice.

#B1Grefs called a holding penalty against Ohio State in the 'Shoe for the first time since 2013 last night. Now I know what you're thinking, but if this were some Jim Delany-backed conspiracy against Penn State, wouldn't that streak have continued?

It's Miler Time

Not Penn State-related, but Deadspin has the local radio calls from the final play of Michigan State-Michigan and the Michigan broadcast is simply delicious.

Saquon Barkley Appreciation Zone

The true freshman erupted for 196 yards on primetime TV and as OS's David Abruzzese writes, we have to cherish his talents.

Sports on Earth's Matt Brown echoed that sentment in his postgame column:

The Penn State offense has been tough to watch, but Barkley gives the Nittany Lions a much-needed spark. It's worth wondering what Barkley would do behind a better offensive line, because so far he's averaging 8.3 yards per carry despite the team's O-line problems, coming up just shy of 200 yards in both Big Ten games he's played. Penn State's offense has a ton of problems, but Barkley is already one of the most dynamic runners in the nation.

Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman also took notice:

Hope you're ready, Maryland.
