I've been contemplating my unconditional love for Penn State football since their effort against Nebraska. We were classic Penn State--pretty solid but a little slow, and not quite good enough to stay ahead of a quick athletic team. Even in our best years we seem chunky, solid, and slow. When we have a winning year it is because our defense is exceptionally solid and our offense has 2-3 better-than-usual skill players. It's not there this year, but I love the team anyway, because it's my team.
