Carroll H. Cook (’54 Pitt) addressed the Nittany Lions twice in yesterday’s chat.
M.A. (Altoona, PA): Ok Beano, is this finally the year that Joe Pa and his Nittany Lions get the monkey off their back with a win at Michigan?
SportsNation Beano Cook: (3:08 PM ET ) If you were to seacrh .com, I said Penn St. would play for the national title, which means they have to go undefeated, especially since the Big Ten is not that strong and the non-conference schedule is a disgrace. With that said, they will win, and meet LSU for the titel. I am surprised they are favored, by three, I thought the game would be a toss up.
As if I wasn’t nervous enough about Saturday’s game, Beano again reminds us that he is picking Penn State for the BCS Championship Game. He’s like a curse!
Jason (WI): How do you see the Wisconsin Badgers finishing the year?
SportsNation Beano Cook: (3:30 PM ET ) They will lose to Penn State. They could win as many as 9-10 games, but they will lose to Penn State. But if they beat Joe Pa’s team, I am sure I will hear from you after the game.
The prevailing trends suggest that Beano just ensured a Wisconsin victory by picking Penn State, four weeks ahead of that game. Congrats dl004d and Tortcaesar.
Bonus — sending love to Yale:
Tony (New Haven, CT): Beano, with Yale and Harvard both picked highly in the Ivy league, can I count on seeing you in New Haven for The Game?
SportsNation Beano Cook: (3:05 PM ET ) I hope before I die, I would like to see one more Harvard-Yale game, but I won’t make it this year. If ESPN sent me I would go, but they are not going to send me.
Send him, ESPN!
