The rain that was long predicted has washed out today’s game, meaning that they will play two tomorrow, at 1:35 and 7:35. I hope this means lots of tryouts for the kids and call-ups.
I’ll likely be tuning in to Penn St./Illinois tonight. I’ve long been a Nittany Lions fan (ripped off in 1994 big time), and though I expect Illinois to give them a game, predict Penn St. will win 44-27–if the weather doesn’t get too bad. If it pours, Illinois might be able to keep it close enough to pull one out on the road. I don’t see it, however, not without causing turnovers and being much better on both sides of the ball than Illinois has been in the first few games. Penn St. is deep and talented, a really good team that with Wisconsin is as good as it gets in the Big Ten.
