PSU's secondary got smoked. I'm surprised other teams didn't go at #10 all season.

i think PSU needs a new coach too, one that can stand on the sideline.
does PSU play anyone out of conference w/ a pulse in 2009?

The secondary blew coverages during that game sure, but there were many occassions Sanchez had all day to throw the ball. Any decent QB that is given enough time to throw and let receivers get open will pick apart even the best secondaries. The performance of the secondary in the Rose Bowl is not even a fair comparison to what Penn State saw in the Big 10. The Big 10 does not have any teams with passing offenses that even come close to USC. Penn State played in a weak conference and had a weak non conference schedule. You can't expect a team that was rolling over cupcake competition to be competitive against the cream of the crop in college football.

There's lot of big name QBs that will graduate to the NFL so that's good but can someone explain why we didn't adjust that zone coverage or, march the Blue Band on the field? Seems like in the old days, our smaller DBs could separate the receiver from the football but now, receivers are too fast once they hit a seam or get separation. Don't understand why defenses in general play their corners ten yard off the line instead of bumping the receivers so the pass rush has another second or two to get to the QB. More frustrating than watching the prevent defense.
