About a week and half ago, I realized that we needed OSU to lose for us to go to the Rose Bowl. Of course we need to beat PSU in Happy Valley as well. I was rooting for PSU against Iowa anyways, but after realizing that them losing would really hurt our chances of the Rose Bowl, I was really pertubed. But, after taking some time to think about it. 1) Being 9-2 is pretty nice. 2) We are either going to the Capital One, Outback, or Rose Bowl. 3) None of this matters, if we don’t beat PSU in Happy Valley. And that’s when I realized, at the end of the day, we need to beat PSU. We may not go to the Rose Bowl, but to have a chance at the Big Ten Title is leaps and bounds better then we’ve ever been since I’ve been a fan of state. To even talk about Big Ten aspirations, or really respected bowls, is almost unbelievable from where we were a year ago. At the end of the day, let’s worry about our win against PSU, we’re 14 1/2 point underdogs. I was shocked to see that at first, then I realized last time we won in Beaver Stadium was in the 50’s, our average loss in that stadium is by 22 points. On the upside Hoyer’s first start was 2 years ago on their field and we lost 17-13, last year we actually beat them at home. So our starting quarterback is undefeated against them, that has to say something right? Either way, at the end of the day, we’re going bowling….
