I have heard a lot of leans on PSU and talk, but no one seems ready to buy yet?
Earlier in the year, there were rumors that obrein ran into illinois coaching staff, at the airport and they exchanged some words. As they were on there way to campus to recruit players. Does this give obrein and the lions a little more extra motivation going into this weekends game? Also does the fact that this is a new offensive system give psu any kind of edge, being that there is limited film and the illinois will not be able to game plan for the lions in the same manner that they have in the years in past.
I think this is a good spot for psu, they are building upon success, Mcgloin is showing a lot of poise in the pocket. Temple looked really strong defensively last week, yet PSU was still able to move the ball. They have shown improvement on both sides of the ball, and leaders, no pun intended seem to be taking on there roles. Mauiti defensively seems to be rallying the defense, and is making plays all over the field.
I think the biggest draw back to backing the lions, is the fact there kicker, fricken clearly shouldn't even be on the roster, and obrein shows no signs of confidence in him.
