#5 Penn State Nittany Lions

A few years ago, with poor season after poor season, Joe Paterno’s team was threatening to become an also ran in the Big Ten. The an 11-1 season followed by a solid finish last year has got the Lion faithful thinking about things other than the nightmare horror of firing old (and I mean old) coach Joe Pa.

This year’s team looks to build upon their bowl defeat of Tennessee and make a run at not just the Big Ten title (of which Penn State has precious few – one – after announcing they would own the Big Ten upon admission to the conference) but a nation title as well.

Prediction: 9-3 (5-3)

Worst Case: 6-6 (2-6)
Losing to Wisconsin, Ohio State and a hot Purdue team are well within the realm of possibility and would leave the deflated Lion fans with the prospect of reviving FireJoePa.com up again.

Best Case: 11-1 (1-7)
PSU is BSC bound if everything comes together for them but they aren’t going to beat Michigan in the big house. Not… Gonna… Do it…
