It's almost here. There's a little renewed hope on The Hill with the new coach. We're coming off the worst season in our history. I along with many other fans are just hoping for a bowl bid even if it is lower tier. Gone are the days of the "brick by brick" and "5 star hearts" cliches. It appears we have a football coach. We may line up in an I formation for a change and run downhill. I'm embracing it.
If I were to do a playoff scenario it would be this:
I'm torn on the 4th spot. tOSU may rally behind UM and all the turmoil but I think it's possible the Nittany Lions may win the B10. I do believe the Pac-12 may get left out again. I would place UGA in the 5th spot.
The thing with Bama is they have been tough to beat even with mediocre QB play and if Tua turns out to be "all that" them rat bastards will be an even tougher out.
We open at a neutral site (Charlotte) with WV and it's not a good matchup for us week 1. We have a 5 game stretch that includes UF, @ UGA, @ Auburn, Bama, @ SC (who has a bye week while we play Bama) before they play us. It will be a test of willpower and what I believe will show the new coaching staff's worth.
I'm ready, lets knock some heads.
