As I'm sure you're all aware of by now, I am a Penn State graduate who has season tickets to Penn State football. Of course, I was a season ticket holder as a student all four years, but last season was my first as a graduate. It was a great year to get on board, what with the Nittany Lions going undefeated at home and winning the Big Ten. That demolition of Michigan was especially gratifying.
Well, this year, the home schedule sucks big, fat donkey balls. The first three games are garbage, as Penn State hosts Akron, Syracuse and then Temple Sept. 5, 12 and 19. To add insult to injury, all three of those shitfests start at noon o'clock. That's some bullshit right there.
The fourth game, an 8:05 night contest with Iowa, sounds pretty good on paper, but without Shonn Greene, the Hawkeyes don't scare me one bit. It is a revenge game, though, so a thorough thumping on Iowa would be sweet.
Beyond that, there isn't even a respectable game at Beaver Stadium until the pinnacle, Ohio State on Nov. 7. In between, I get the "privilege" of taking in Eastern Illinois (Oct. 10) and Minnesota (Oct. 17). Then Penn State wraps up the home schedule with Indiana on Nov. 14. That means Arkansas Fred and I are doling out $880 to see the likes of Akron, Syracuse, Temple, Eastern Illinois, Minnesota and Indiana. What a crock of shit. Give me more than one or two actual good home games to spend this type of dough on, you jerks.
When do we get Alabama at home? 2011?
