This week the folks at Bleacher Report wanted me to come up with 11 reasons why Penn State should start the season in the Top 10 polls.
Upon reading that, I admit I was stumped. After all, this is a program that will be coming off a 7-6 season with much of the same issues they had last season.
And you want me to tell you why this should be a top ten team? And you want 11 different reasons?
Surely, I have my work cut out for me with this assignment, but I will put on my eternal optimist cap and see if I can come up with some reasons why Penn State could be considered a Top 10 program this season.
