2nd youngest team in FBS.Washpa Randy said:Great job by Penn State. Yes, they were 7-6. Pretty good record considering they only had 41 scholarship players on their roster while all their opponents had at least 70-75.

DID YOU KNOW #PennState has had 10 consecutive winning seasons, something Bama, ND, OSU, Mich, Texas, Aub, UF and TAMU can't say?
I guess if player graduation rates don't mean anything, George's (whoever he is) subjective opinion may be right.hi_tech_redneck said:Like George Schroeder stated in the USA Today..."Under Nick Saban Alabama has become the standard by which college football measures itself".
First of all. No one in the B1G is elite on the football field. OSU without the help of officials wouldn't be sniffing the final four. They will get smoked by Alabama as they always do when they play someone in the SEC.DethFrumAbuv said:A graduation rate of 75% is way above what can be expected from the general population of students going for a four-year degree.
Considering the impact of early entries into the NFL draft from Ohio State and Alabama, 75% is really, really good.
Shows that truly elite programs have their acts together. All athletic programs will have issues with these young people misbehaving on occasion, don't kid yourself, but Nick Saban's and Urban Meyer's records speak for themselves.
True...but with that said, one would think kids would rather play for the Big Ten schools than the perennial winners, and we all know that is not the case.KingRon said:When you receive a scholarship from a Big Ten school it is for the full 4 years. This is the policy of the Big Ten Schools. In the SEC there are no guarantees. If someone comes along who they think is better at your position, they will boot you out the door, with no remorse. The SEC schools are notorious for this practice!
Nothing against Penn State in particular, I just find it ridiculous that any 6-6 team goes to a bowl game. I guess I just have to get my head around the idea that 99.8% of bowl games are meaningless.boondocker said:Always the sarcastic one aren't you?
