PENN STATE FOREVER
"You can take bowl games and you can take external things from people, but you can't take a warrior's heart."
Ohio U. - Win...I think the crowd and momentum will give us the edge, but we can't sleep on them
at Virginia - Tossup, if there is a lot of anti-PSU trash talk by fans and players...us against the world type mentality might kick in. However, we could be out-manned..(I hope Sims starts a QB battle and split the reps)...
Navy - Win...I love Navy and we can't sleep on them, but our talent in the front-7 should win out and we should be able to move the ball against their defense
Temple - Win, like someone said, lost a lot of talent upfront on both sides of the ball.
at Illinois - Win, this has to be the statement game...I am sure BOB won't mind going for broke in this one
Northwestern - Tossup, NW is always a tough game...this will challenge our mental toughness
at Iowa - tossup, it depends if they get that running game started. At some-point, Iowa's lack of overall talent might catch up with them
Ohio State - Tossup, it depends how injuries effect us and how Braxton Miller develops for them
at Purdue - Tossup, their QB play is key...
at Nebraska - Loss, unless we can shutdown their run game and make Martinez pass the ball
Indiana - Win, its still Indiana (probably the game I think is most of a lock)
Wisconsin - Loss, Unless this team treats it as a bowl game and Wisky is a lock for the B1G championship and goes on cruse control...
Final tally - 5 wins 5 tossups 2 loses
8 wins 4 losses

That brings us to 7-5. I'm hoping for better, I could also see worse. The consensus seems to be 5 to 7 wins from the "experts". Remember, no one has seen B'OB head coach a game before.
More than just football
I think 9-3 is possible. The old staff pulled off 7 and 8 win seasons I think the new staff is an upgrade and will help get wins we wouldn't have had otherwise. Add in that these players have some incentive to play hard.
To be a champion you must act like one, act like a champion.
