Since it was only a short year ago that we found ourselves in the same bowl situation as the Fightin' Farmers did this year, I thought it worth checking out this game.
What I saw on the Aggie end was disappointing, which in turn made me slightly more depressed about our loss on Turkey Day+1, but at the same time I saw something very interesting on the offensive side from Penn State. I couldn't help but think about it in terms of 'what if Texas were to do the something similar?'
If you saw the game you may recall that Penn State has 2 good QB's: one is more of a passer, the other more of a pure athlete/running QB. What they did quite effectively was run a half dozen or more plays in which the starter (we'll call him Quaker Colt) brought in the play and then split out at WR while the other QB (Quaker Chiles) took the snap from center.
The formation alone messed with the Aggies D big time, and I was impressed that old school Joe Paterno adapted to the talent he had on hand. Now if we could only do the same in the Burnt Orange Nation. Comments?
