"Hey everybody! Come see how good I look!"

Sorry for the reference there, but I watched Anchorman today and couldn't help myself. Aren't we a little bit like Ron Burgundy right now near hte end of the film? I am referring to the scene when he passionately admits to the bartender that Veronica was better than him. Illinois is better than us right now, as much as we hate to admit it.

Hopefully we won't be saying the same thing about Penn State tonight. This is a difficult game, especially since it looks like Robbie Hummel won't be playing again, but we at least have Chris Kramer back. We need to stick him on Talor Battle and concentrate on keeping Cornley off the boards. The Nittany lions have three outstanding players in Battle, Cornley, and Pringle, but they are not as balanced as Illinois. If we can take away just one of those three I really like our chances especially since their overall production really drops off after those three.

I wasn't able to sell my tickets, but the game I was supposed to cover fell through anyway. Consider this an open thread tonight for anyone who wants to stop by. I'll be in attendance for the first time in a long time, which is a nice little bonus given to me by life. If anyone is around section 112, row 13 feel free to stop by and say hi.
