tBBC Radio Hour: Penn State Preview

Written October 24th, 2013 by Joe Dexter

Clair and Joe are back to talk picking off passes and turning them into six point! It’s another week and the gang has yet another jam packed show for you as Ohio State looks to move their winning streak to 20 straight games on Saturday night against Penn State University. The Nittany Lions are coming off a bye week and are in stride after an overtime victory over TTUN the week before.

Joe and Clair preview Saturday’s game, talk targeting, Lebron James on the gridiron, and the disgrace that is the NCAA in regards to their recent ruling after a 2 1/2 year investigation into the Miami Hurricane program.

We are then joined by Mark Wogenrich, who covers Penn State for the Allentown Morning Call. Wogenrich breaks down what it’s like covering Bill O’Brien, the talent of true freshman Christian Hackenberg, the fanbase mindset after the recent reduction in penalties handed down by the NCAA, and how their ruling in the Miami investigation is a kick in the gut of Nittany Lion fans.

Wogenrich also breaks down the game Saturday by talking about Penn State’s top playmaker, Allen Robinson — as well as the PSU coaching staff’s desire to recruit Ohio, the team defense, and what it will take to win on Saturday.

Thanks for listening! And make sure you add us on Itunes!

    Joe, Clair; one of your better podcasts, thank you. I have two comments on your riffing..

    Re LeBron James; I would take his athleticism is a heartbeat. LBJ at WR for any NFL team would be a QB’s dream and a defense’s nightmare. I don’t give a shit how fast you may think he is; he is fast enough when he needs to be. Don’t forget, the Browns drafted John Havelichek as a WR, so this type of athleticism is recognized in the NFL.

    Re the targeting nonsense, I’m not sure of Clair’s source, but the source is dead-ass wrong on “if I don’t go for head-shot, I take out the knee”. That is absolute bullshit and demonstrates an ignorance of the game. The “either, or” is a false dichototomy. I don’t accept it. Looking back on things, I would not have encouraged my son to play football. Joe, if you and your wife have a son, you will be doing the same calculus.

    Aside from that, a very pleasant podcast :)I do enjoy the weekly riff.
