Gauntlet. It’s a word that, had you been following along with my Penn State pieces over the last three weeks, you’ve seen me articulate quite frequently. But in the case of the 15 day stretch that Penn state was staring headlong at midway through October, the word gauntlet was very much justifiable. The team was […]Read more "Previewing Week 11: Penn State Hosts Rutgers in ‘must win’ situation"
For the first time this season, I was wrong in my Penn State prediction.
