I think it will tell a lot abot this team. Playing a Miami and South Carolina (hopefully) will tell us whether this is a potential tourney team or not. Those are the kind of OOC games that you have to win in order to build the resume for the bubble team that PSU hopes to hurdle over this year. In addition, if PSU can’t beat the likes of Miami or South Carolina, the Big Ten season could get long.
Based on watching the two games via the DVR, I am cautiously optimistic that this team could do something special. More quality depth than any PSU team I have ever seen and with Battle, have a legit alpha dog that can win any game.
