On Saturday afternoon, the Penn State Nittany Lions hosted the Wisconsin Badgers at Beaver Stadium in a contest of American football. On a cold and blustery autumn day, the Nittany Lions emerged victorious, 22-10. I have several thoughts, which are set forth randomly below:
- Anyone who thinks the result of this game would have differed if Alex Hornibrook was available at quarterback needs to reconsider their view. Hornibrook is...fine? Acceptable? Choose your own descriptor. But completing 58% of your passes with an 11:8 touchdown-to-interception ratio doesn’t exactly scream game changer.
