Syracuse Penn State Official Idiotic Predictions
You all know the drill, each week we predict the outcome of the upcoming Syracuse game. On Saturday Penn State charges into the Carrier Dome as 28 point favorites. Let's get to the predictions:
We waited 20 years for this? That's what really p*sses me off about GRob. As the Orange program ascended in the early '90's I anxiously awaited the day we'd get another shot at JoePa. One of my best Dome memories is walking down the aisle with a tray of beers accompanied by Boss as we heckled the Miami Hurricanes during pre-game warm ups in '98. I longed for the day I'd get to do the same thing to the boys from Happy Valley.
Unfortunately, thanks to Head Coach Barney Fife we're 28 point 'dogs AT HOME PEOPLE!
Lay the money on Penn State as JoePa teaches Daryl Gross a lesson or two about his former LB Paul Pasqualoni.
"Its stinks you know, now that we are good Paterno doesn’t want to schedule fairly, and I don’t like to see the series come to an end now, but we don’t have to be accommodating anybody, especially JoPa.’ -- Boss (a paraphrased quote, that was issued about a thousands of drinks ago) speaking to a WSTM-3 reporter at Orange Pack SU Fanfest in August of 1989 after being asked how I felt about the last scheduled (at the time) home game with Penn State which was to be played that fall.
Of course what the hell did I know about Eastern college sports politics back then…all I knew is that we were starting to become an Eastern powerhouse....good times. Unfortunately its September 2008 and now I’m hoping JoPa accommodates us by keeping the margin below 50.

February 17, 2009 is the last day that television stations will broadcast in analog. After that, TVs that haven't made the switch to digital won't work. The Syracuse football team is broadcasting in analog, using some old broken rabbit ears that are covered in tin foil to get better reception. It's not working. We clearly need to make a switch.
Penn State has already made the conversion to high definition - running the HD Spread. Defending the spread has been the biggest weakness Greg Robinson has displayed, which is kind of like pointing out the biggest weakness in the EnRon accounting department -- there's a lot to chose from. In a game that's the equivalent of speeding train v. a car stalled on the tracks, take the train.
