    I count atleast 3 defensive players, safety Mays and the 2 LBs, who could be
    our pick at #15 in the Draft though LB Cushing is probably unlikely to go that high. I'm really not familiar at all with Penn State's personnel ?
    Looks like USC scored first. No big surprise.

    PS apparently didn't get the memo they were playing the greatest college D ever ? And all-world safety Mays whiffed big-time trying to keep the PS QB from crossing the G-L.

    Mays is all hype. Just like Bing. He has been invisible today and whiffed on a huge play.

    I couldn't care less for either team (not to be confused with a dislike for them) but will watch the Rose Bowl because it's, well, a bowl game.

    I went away from the game to call my dad and somehow the game went from 17-7 to 31-7 in a hurry. I saw 24-7 coming, but was there a Penn St. turnover or something?

    Yeah, big run for PSU but fumbled at the end of it..
    And USC drove right back down

    As much as I hate USC being a UND fan, I much prefer the Big ten losing.

    I still think Mays is overrated... But did you guys see his killshot? I would love for a Texans safety to lay one like that, on the other team though.

    Wait till he faces an actual QB to WR combo in the NFL. Pac-10 is terrible, and Penn State doesn't exactly have a good offense when they can't run the football consistently.

    I'd like to see what Mays does against a real offense in the NFL.

    already knew Mays MO - highlight reel
    Cushing seemed healthy, mid-late 1st rd.
    Maualuga seemed heavy, slow in pursuit
    Clay is blue collar just like the rest of the family
    Sanchez looked better today than Stafford
    Navorro Bowman, great motor & productive, think he is going to be a very good NFL player someday

    That cat totally stood out to me today watching the game. He'll be a junior next year and if he has a season like this past one he'll be leaving early.

    Except that Mays is nothing like Bing and it's usually a really, really good thing if you don't hear about your FS during the game too much.
