Blue-White Roundtable: That Team

penn state

Thanks for a heck of a ride, Buccos

I’ve got to take a moment to praise my Pirates for having such a great season. It’s not often that us doggs (Buccos fan, Royals fan, Orioles fan) get to see good baseball. Losing after leading the series 2-1 hurts, but the Pirates have a great young nucleus and also some great prospects coming up. This is just the beginning. Anyway, onto football.

Guess who struck back? Adam wasted no time in wresting control of his own roundtable from the greedy doggs that reside in JoePa’s Doghouse. You know the routine, hit up Black Shoe Diaries for their usual Friday recap. Also, be sure to drop by these folks.

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?

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:

Blue-White Roundtable: Syracuse

Another repeat non-conference opponent. Only this time, it's in a boring NFL stadium!

It’s here, it’s here. By god, college football is finally here!!!

The doggs may be swept up in pennant fever, but there’s nothing like a new Penn State season to get the blood flowing and the emotions cranked up.

Back as always is good ol Adam from Black Shoe Diaries with a fresh batch of questions. 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:

Requiem for a Tailgate?

pellagate

Early March seems like a good time for the first post of 2013, eh?

Truth be told, things have been very hectic in the Doghouse lately.  Not so much from a blog standpoint, but in a real life standpoint.

A few weeks ago, Mrs Rowlff Dogg landed a big promotion that is moving us to enemy territory.  Michigan to be exact.  We will be joining the likes of @PSUMatt2005 and @DAWalenga in the Penn State takeover of The Great Lakes State.
