Welp, losing to Illinois still sucks. The Outback Bowl might look like a desirable destination given the way the Nittany Lions played on Saturday. It is interesting to note how many different opponents Penn State could face in Tampa, with Arkansas and Kentucky not being my favorite matchups. Florida would be interesting, I suppose. Anyway, let’s hope the good guys bounce back and win a few games to improve their prospects.
