Penn State needs to talk to SMU and ask for some advice on how to play against the big boys with a bunch of walk-ons for the next four years. It may not have been the death penalty, but it was certainly the most severe smackdown issued by the NCAA since the SMU death penalty. Think about how long it took the SMU program to recover (it would be easy to argue that they still haven’t) and Penn State could have a verylong hill to climb to get back to where they were. No shortage of fan support,and it’s admirable to see the players who are devoted to staying, but it all makesfor a bad situation on and off the field.With that Penn State mess out of the way it is time for fans to start looking attheir favorite teams as they prepare to open fall camp. The conferences all hadtheir media days, signaling the start of the 2012-2013 season! Media days don’t actually mean a whole lot as far as what is said, but the symbolic meaning of themedia days themselves eschewing in the new football season is something to openly embrace.Will Muschamp can recruit, but can he coach? He is a “Nick Saban Disciple,” so let’s hope he has the same year-two success Saban did while at Alabama. Saban’s firstseason at Alabama was a 6-6 finish with a bowl win to reach to the seven win mark. Year two he was 12-0 and ready to punch his ticket to the national title game before Florida upset them. I am hoping that Florida becomes what Saban has done in Tuscaloosa.The least of Penn State’s worries right now should be new uniforms. It will beodd seeing Penn State in anything but their traditional blue jersey and white pants set up. I know Northwestern is looking to make a statement with new uniforms, and Nebraska floated some affronts to humanity online as well. It should be interesting to see what Penn State comes up with, getting rid of the old uniformsis another way of trying to move on from all the bad that has surrounded the Penn State football program. It can’t be stated enough, sad times at Penn State.The season cannot get here soon enough. With Penn State desperately trying to get out of the news, new witch hunts on top programs and coaches are startingup. People are accusing Saban of cheating….cheating on what? When you are on top everyone is going to come after you. I just want kickoff to happen so we can putall this drama to rest and get back to what is important….FOOTBALL!If you are a Wisconsin fan, can you already smell the roses? With Ohio Stateand Penn State ineligible for, they only have to beat out Indiana, Illinois, and Purdue for a spot in the BIG-10 title game from their division. Cakewalk is anunderstatement here for their path to Pasadena. On another side note, can someone please change the names to the LEADERS and LEGENDS divisions? It’s confusing asever and was named like that for people like Joe Pa. Time to change the names and realign the divisions please. It needs to be a more West and East division thing. Do Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State, Purdue, and Indiana; and put Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin, Northwestern, and Illinois in the other. Thatmakes sense, quick–can anyone NOT in B1G country name the teams in the Legends andLeaders divisions? Bet your know-it-all sports fan, and watch them stumble.The PAC-12 has always been known for its Offense. Sometimes the scores more
