Blue-White Roguetable: Indiana

penn state

What a surprise, Penn State opens B1G play on the road?

What better way to battle the Bucco Blues than answering some football questions. I have no doubt the Pirates will come back and house the Cardinals, and I am equally certain that you’ll enjoy this week’s installment of the roundtable.

Yet again, we decided to give our boy Adam a rest and turn this into the Blue-White Rouge-table. Despite our coup, make sure to hit up Black Shoe Diaries for their usual Friday recap. Also, take a gander what these peeps think about my questions.

Blue-White Roundtable: Who We Playin?

penn state

So, anything happen this week?

It’s a bye week, so that means a pretty slow Penn State news week, right? Maybe we should have bye weeks more often…

After a self-imposed “bye week,” Adam tossed out a few more questions. Be sure to hit up Black Shoe Diaries for their usual recap yo. In the meantime, pop your head on a turtle and yell, “Hola DEA” at these guys.

Blue-White Roundtable: Goin Rogue

Well, at least you’re not Temple

Why not mix things up a bit after that tough loss. This week, the doggs went rogue and made up their own questions.

So, screw the good folks at Black Shoe Diaries. Some of these chickenheads might have answered these questions. Who knows? Check em out anyway!

Blue-White Roundtable: Central Florida

You may be from Florida, but you’re still a directional school

An almost night game against an almost real Florida opponent. No really, all kidding aside, it should be a good game in a fun atmosphere.

Someone who’s always fun, Adam from Black Shoe Diaries has some more questions for us peeps. Be sure to head on over to BSD later this week for a “greatest hits” of sorts. In the meantime, check out what these peeps are saying:

Breaking Penn State

breaking bad

As Breaking Bad nears its series finale, there are still a lot of unanswered questions as to how it all plays out.  Who will prevail: Walt or Hank?  Who is going to survive?  Where is the flash-forward going?

The one question no one seems to be asking is: how does Breaking Bad relate to Penn State?

Roundtable Update

Predictions?

J Schnauzer: RowlffDogg misses his first PSU home game in decades and comforts himself with a keg of Bell's Octoberfest and a Costco box of Milkbones, Penn State converts on 50% of its third downs, and another surprising defender comes up big to squash the early efforts of the Eastern Michigan Eastern Emus.

45-7 good guys.

Love Week: Kansas State

For the first time in our site's history none of our writers will be living in State College. We can't provide you the same in-game thoughts and experience, but we thought we'd re-introduce a series we began two years ago when RowlffDogg visited West Virginia. From time to time, we will venture out to different venues and record our experiences across the country. College football is a national game, with hundreds of locations offering great experiences every Saturday (and occasional Friday or Thursday). While Penn State won't be going to a bowl game soon, that offers us an opportunity to check out other places celebrating this awesome game.

Last Friday I went to one of the first games of the season: a home opener at Bill Snyder Family Stadium between Kansas State and FCS Powerhouse North Dakota State.

What I’m Missing This Saturday

pellagate

Two games since 1985.  Michigan in 1995 and Central Michigan in 2005.  Those were the only two home games I have missed since the middle of the Reagan administration.

As much as I would have loved to have witnessed the Snow Bowl and Joe Nastasi’s fake field goal touchdown, I was not allowed to leave the house.  I wasn’t grounded or anything.  We were just the victim of a nasty snow storm that prevented us from driving the three hour distance.

Central Michigan was a different story.  Suffice it to say that Fall weddings are not acceptable.  There is a name for people who have fall weddings.  They’re called jerks.

So, there we have it.  Two circumstances beyond my control have prevented me from a consecutive game streak that dated back to Temple 1986.

Blue-White Roundtable: Eastern Michigan

Charlie Batch ain’t walking through that door!

Now that we’ve all had our Vitamin C courtesy of the Orangemen*, it’s time to feast on a nice MAC cupcake.

*- Shut up. They’re the Orangemen.

Someone we’d never tell to shut up, Adam from Black Shoe Diaries has some more questions for us to feast on. Be sure to head on over to BSD later this week for a “greatest hits” of sorts. In the meantime, check out what these peeps are saying:

What if the Paternos Got Hackenberg?

mr happy

Nothing but happy times ahead!

It is hard not to get excited over Christian Hackenberg’s performance in his first collegiate game.  The highly touted freshman already had sky-high expectations and his debut did nothing to lessen them.  I, for one, cannot wait to see what Bill O’Brien can do with this kid in a few years.

But what would have happened if the Paternos got a hold of Hackenberg?  First, one would have to assume that Hackenberg would want to play under the tutelage of Jay Paterno.  Secondly, one would have to assume that Joe would have made the effort to secure and maintain Hackenberg’s commitment.  That is some heavy suspension of belief, my friends.

Let’s make those bold assumptions and dip into fantasy world for a moment, shall we?
