Penn State Football: An Admission

I. Was. Wrong.

I thought Penn State wouldn't show up against Michigan. I doubted that 110,000 people standing at Beaver Stadium, hating Michigan with their every breath, would make a difference. I doubted a loud and proud student section, who showed up reliably late after their 12-hour drinkathon. I doubted Matt McGloin. I doubted the offensive line. I doubted the running backs - especially Evan Royster. I doubted the receivers. I doubted the defense. I doubted Joe Paterno and his coaching staff. I doubted us so much that I predicted on my Penn State-centric blog that the Lions would lose by 14.

I wasn't alone. The College Gameday guys also thought the same thing.

But after seeing Penn State beat Michigan 41-31 at Beaver Stadium. I can say this quite happily: I was wrong.
