Gearing up for just a regular game: Penn State versus Indiana.

Show Notes

No Penn State fan needs to be reminded about what transpired the last time the Nittany Lions faced Indiana's football team. The debacle of sloppy and undisciplined play, uninspired playcalling, and unearned bravado, capped off with a highly-controversial replay review, began State's disastrous fake season with a whimper. Now, undefeated Penn State prepares to host the Hoosiers under the lights with far loftier goals than "revenge" against the likes of Indiana. Still, this moment recalls the 2008 White Out, when Illinois - another traditionally-middling conference cellar dweller coming off its second-ever win against Penn State the previous year and awash in self-importance - was rewarded with a night under the lights at Beaver Stadium and a subsequent ass-kicking. Will this season see a similar result? Time will tell. We begin this episode with a brief revisitation of our mental state immediately following the 2020 Indiana game and take it from there.

HOSTED BY: Brandon Noble, Mike "The Mailman" Herr, Kevin Horne, Chris Buchignani
