Get over yourselves.

Enjoy this random video about bowling.

I've been reading a lot of comments, on blogs and boards, about how JoePa should put his foot down and keep this team home for bowl season. This comment is off on so many different levels I don't know where to begin:

1. No one stays home for bowl season, I don't even know if the Big Ten allows it as money is split evenly amongst the teams.

2. Do you really want to recruit all offseason and tell 18 year old kids that they have to work 7 days a week, year round on football, but if one idiot, or a dozen idiots, act like the loser-children that they are, you are going to have to sit around on your arse with your mom all winter?

3. Do you really want the team to give up two months of practice? After what we have seen from the, no.

4. We need the exposure. I don't care if it's the Champs-suck Bowl, we are getting owned in state this year and don't do well enough outside of New York and Virginia to justify passing up a televised game.

5. Finally, its ignorant as fuck. You played all season, most of the kids gave their all every game. There are some great guys on this team, guys like Connor who passed up millions to play for Penn State one more year, to help bring along the other linebacker in the program. Doing this sets a terrible precedent and tells the nation we think we are too good for the reward we deserve.
