    #2 Iowa @ #1 Penn State

    [​IMG]

    Is this a big game or what? #1 vs #2 going head to head.

    Questions are now open for the Head Coaches.

    Iowa: Mike, tell us what your thoughts are on your great season so far? Do you have the team to finally run the table? Penn State is giving up an average of two touchdowns, how do you plan on putting up points against this stingy defense.

    Penn State: Cimmy, are you a bit nervous with so much on the line? How do you plan on stopping Brandon Wegher who has averaged 158.1 yards per game on the ground? What are your thoughts on the season up to this point? You have come so far but still have 1 more big game against your old foe Ohio State, are you looking ahead?

    Good Luck to the both of you.

    BfR, add some talk.

    Wow, I don't know what to say about this game. At the Beav, i'm guessing there will be a little white, one big injury on each side of the ball. This game means a lot to both teams involved. Coach, I look forward to this.

    This season has been a trying one so far. Our starting quarterback was taken out by the thugs from MSU. We have had a couple other injuries in the backfield that have thinned our depth for a couple games. But our biggest problem has to be on defense this year. The secondary has taken a while to get in stride with the rest of the program. I feel that they are finally coming around, but still have a lot of room to improve. The defensive line has been performing well, but need a big game to be able to stay in it with PSU. My thanks goes out to my veterans in the LB corp. Those guys have held this defense together from the get-go, and I need them to keep performing. I don't really have any plans for putting up points against this defense. My main concern is the defense putting up points against me. With a young QB in a VERY hostile environment, this will be of the utmost importance.

    On the other question, is it week 14 yet? If not, I don't want to think about it.

    Mike

    Yeah, ask USC week 1 and Minnesota. Also, ask every opponent PSU has played in the 4 STRAIGHT BCS Bowl Wins we have.... :D

    H22 is a great opponent, but we aren't nervous, we are anxious. This defense is one of the best in the country, I am not able to look at stats at all right now, but we have an extremely good defense. Ask USC how well they ran the ball. We've had a great season and we look to continue a great season. Looking ahead at Ohio St? Are you kidding? We take it week by week and the #1 Toughest Stadium in the country is hosting the #2 team in the nation...what makes you think we would look past this?

    Since you're asking, USC says that you can't compare what happened in our game to what's going to happen with Iowa. So you don't have to ask us anything we are worried about winning the rest of our games not what happens with Iowa/PSU.

    Not to ask your opinion on the outcome, we, the Pennsylvania State University, don't give a ratass what you or any other program thinks will happen. It's not what others opinions are, it is what happens on the field. Where we were going was, how successful the USC Trojans were running the ball against this PSU Defense and how we performed in that big game. :D

    My only problem here is that I still have at least 3 big games left in the Big10

    That's not really what we do this season but you did a good job stopping the run. You did a better job with the 4 picks. Barkley hasn't thrown one since that was the key bro, not you stopping my nonexistent running game. Good luck both of you.
