Seems a little weird that I would start this thread for this game, but just as Mike Tisdale is feeling his back today, I’m beginning to feel it for the Nittany’s tonight.
I really feel we have the Illini right where we need them. Thinking they’re a little better than they might be. They are 3-0 in the Big Ten, but have beaten NW at home (in OT), Indiana on the road (big comeback) and Iowa at home (Hawkeyes played the part of an ugly MAC team). Mixed up in the middle was an OT loss to Gonzaga in Chicago.
And in the last three on the road, PSU has beaten Virginia, lost by 3 at #19 Temple and lost by 5 in the Barn. Not too shabby.
So here’s to Babb lighting the lamp five times tonight.
Here’s to the Andrews getting big Tis in early foul trouble.
And here’s to Bubby Battle hitting the game winner at the buzzer.
The fun starts tonight folks
