Prepare for frustration in Happy Valley as it is extremely unlikely that Joe Paterno and his Nittany Lions will have the option to approach last season’s 11-1 record with an Orange Bowl triumph.
Quarterback Michael Robinson, last season’s Big 10 Offensive Player of the Year, was Penn State’s hostile motor last season what defenses’ identity had to fabricate courses of action around.
Anthony Morelli doesn’t have an ounce of Robinson’s running capacity which will take out the consistent portion of quarterback draws and choice plays the Nittany Lions astonished us with a แวดวงสนามมวย year ago. With a constrained hostile assault, which will presently be decreased to generally drop back passing and handoffs to half back Tony Hunt, the Nittany Lions offense will be a lot simpler to safeguard this season.
Penn State frantically needs to run the ball down the resistance’s throats this season to ease the heat off first-year starter Morelli. Be that as it may, this could be a troublesome assignment as 4 beginning hostile lineman have left. Ideally this won’t cause an inversion back to the ’03 and ’04 seasons which saw Penn State finish ninth in the Big 10 in surging. I don’t figure we will see that large of a drop off as Paterno has more ability set up than he did at that point, yet the offense won’t be running close as easily this season as it did last season.
I wish I could disclose to Penn State fans not to stress over the offense in light of the fact that the safeguard will get a move on, however with the loss of Big 10 sack pioneer Tamba Hali just as 2 of the other front 4 which were so acceptable last season, the Nittany Lions could be in a tough situation. Fortunately, they get back Paul Posluszny, who might probably be preparing for his new kid on the block season in the NFL notwithstanding a knee injury endured in the Orange Bowl against Florida State. A year ago’s Butkus Award Winner should lead the resistance alongside Connor and Shaw who make up maybe the most strong line backing center in the Big 10. Notwithstanding, with the Lions not close to as solid in advance, it will make life considerably more troublesome on the patrons.
Penn State will probably complete in the pack in the Big 10 out of 2006. They will have an early gauge in week 2 when they go to South Bend to take on the Irish. They’ll go down at Ohio State on September 23rd and to Michigan on October fifteenth. The most significant stretch of the period for the Lions will be their last 3 Big 10 games spreading over from October 28th through November eighteenth against Purdue, Wisconsin, and Michigan State. To the extent I can see these game are available to anyone and this could be the distinction regarding whether Penn State and Joe Pa are bowling or not this season.
