Gibbs, you are obviously a monster Penn State fan. I got stuck going to a Bridge tourney on the weekend when Notre Dame "lost" to USC and Penn State "lost" to Michigan, but as I understand it, both Notre Dame and Penn State got SCREWED.
Is that true? Is Penn State therefore supposed to still be undefeated? What an awful thing if that's so.
If this is true, do you think they would rank #1 or #2 in the BCS had they not been screwed? And bear this in mind: I live on the West Coast, 1 mile from the ocean, and have seen all but that one of the USC scare games this year. That team is light years from being invincible.
They easily could lose to UCLA, especially since UCLA gets an extra week to study how Fresno State put 42 on the board against the mighty Trojans--including a bunch after USC had recovered at halftime and seemingly started to pull away for a blowout. Fresno State drove down to the USC 25, first and 10, in the final 2 minutes, with a chance to get to overtime if they got 8 more points.
Of course, IF the Trojans lose to UCLA, and if Penn State doesn't take a computer screwing, I suppose it's no harm no foul, huh? But what do you think of all this? DID Penn State get screwed royally on their only loss? I've yet to find out. But I sure don't buy the b.s. notion that B.Z.S. (Blind Zebra Syndrome) is a part of the game and adds the "human element." And I'd hate to think it's going to cost Paterno a shot at a fairy-tale type championship.
Penn State receiver Derrick Williams is doubtful for the Orange Bowl because of an arm injury that sidelined the freshman for two months.
Coach Joe Paterno said Thursday that Williams, who has been out with a broken left arm, will sit out the No. 3 Nittany Lions' game against No. 22 Florida State on Tuesday.
"Derrick Williams is worth a touchdown, but I doubt, really, if he'll play," Paterno said.
