[quote=“Chris11, post:1, topic:2774”]Hi everyone, first time/long time
Penn State ranked #114 in the preseason Pomeroy Ratings, last place in the Big Ten.
The projected record is 13-17 (5-13). The USF/ODU game is not listed, and won’t be listed until after the Kentucky game when we know who the opponent will be, but the likely projected record will be 13-18 (5-13). I don’t know about anyone else, but I’d be satisfied with that from this team.[/quote]
Welcome to the board Chris, and good first post.
Like I’ve said before, it’s hard to place PSU anywhere but at the bottom of the league when doing these preseason prediction drills…I think the coaches around the league will know not to take this group lightly though.
Someone used the analogy a few weeks ago in another thread about Joe Tiller when he first came to Purdue. Many Big Ten pundits didn’t think Tiller’s methods would work in the Big Ten, but alas, they did and Purdue went on to have a good deal of success right from the start. Likewise, maybe Coach Chambers can bring a fresh look to the stodgy play of the Big Ten and actually make it work.
And although he’s only one player, I think many of the ten other BT coaches would like Tim Frazier running their show. And if Timmy can help develop the young talent around him, PSU might surprise a few folks.
That’s what many of us are so excited about, regardless of the wins-losses this season.
