A week after such a highly anticipated game, the possibility of a letdown always exists.
Of course, the conference schedule makers did us no favors by throwing “the Temple of the Big Ten” at our feet, merely one week after Ohio State. Think about it- we play Purdue every year and the games are always boring and far from memorable. Blah.
Someone who never elicits a “blah,” good ol Adam from Black Shoe Diaries has some more questions this week. 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:

Don’t you hate when you wake up and get a whiff of a foul odor coming from the west. Many years ago, that used to be Pitt. Ever since 1993, however, Pitt’s cologne of mediocrity has been overwhelmed by the stench of the Buckeyes.
Their football team stinks. Their football coach stinks. Their fans stink. Their fans who actually graduated from Ohio State stink. Everything about them stinks.
Saturday, you might want to drink that extra tailgate drink on the off chance you end up next to one of those stinkbugs in Beaver stadium.
In the meantime, anybody hear any good Ohio State jokes lately....
As a public service announcement, we’re reminding you to hide your car stereos and lock up your tattoo parlors. If you feel threatened, run to the nearest library. No Buckeye will find you there.
That’s right, it’s Ohio State week. As we prepare for our lovely town to be invaded by Ohio residents (notice I didn’t say OSU alumni), we at JoePa’s Doghouse feel it appropriate to show our appreciation to the people to the west.
Thank you for hiring Urban Meyer. We’ll do just fine with Coach O’Brien.
Someone else we tend to do fine with, Adam from Black Shoe Diaries has provided some more questions this week. Be sure to head on over to BSD later this week for a “greatest hits” of sorts. In the meantime, check out what these folks are saying:

Yeah, we have our share of problems. But at least we're not from Ohio.
As these or other pre-determined drinks occur, tweet ‘em and hashtag #DrinkTheCriminalsAway
Ugh. All this drama has sapped the life out of me.
F Ohio $tate!
Someone who is always full of energy, Adam from Black Shoe Diaries barked out the questions yet again. So be sure to hit up BSD later this week for a “greatest hits” of sorts. In the meantime, check out what these guys are saying:

A couple of things that have been on my mind. None of which have anything to do with light bulbs as indicated in the above image...
After weeks of oppressive heat, State College weather has finally cooled off a bit. It’s almost as if July and August switched schedules this summer. Spikes games are now being played in ideal conditions. Outdoor drinking is possible without a drenched shirt after the fact. And it is a lot more comfortable sleeping at night.
That is, unless you’re Tim Curley and you’re suffering from a recurring nightmare.
It all started a few days ago when word got out about Texas A&M seceding from what’s left of the Big XII. In a summer filled with Ohio State bashing, eyebrow raising in Eugene, and then a little more Buckeye humiliation, the focus was finally returning to the gridiron. Then all heck broke loose and conference expansion forced itself to the center stage like the previous summer.
If the Aggies jumped to the SEC, would that trigger another round of conference realignment? Would the Big Ten be forced to keep up with the league that is famously faster than everyone else?
And to think, there was a time when Tim Curley’s biggest summer concern was getting AM phone calls about offensive linemen shooting arrows in apartment walls.
So there he lay. Penn State’s Athletic Director wide awake. With no Ed DeChellis to bring him a glass of warm milk. Just lie still and sleep will come. Sleep will come…. Sleeeeeepppp willllll……zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
