Penn State Football 2010 Season Preview

The time has finally come. Kickoff from the Beav comes in two short days. The sports writers here at Onward State have scoured over statistics and depth charts, and finally let JayPa out of our torture chamber, now that we know who our starting quarterback is. We have now come up with the most comprehensive football preview you’ll see. OK it’s one paragraph apiece, but we’re a blog, so deal with it.

Dan
Projected Record: 10-2
Player To Watch: Robert Bolden, QB
Many experts are predicting Penn State to drop three or four games this season, with losses to the big three (Alabama, Iowa and Ohio State). Call me an optimist, but I see big things for the team this year. I believe we can go into Iowa City and steal a victory and, at least, have a shot of playing tough against the Crimson Tide. Inexperience as quarterback could thwart an attempt against the nation’s top ranked team, though. As much as I’d like to predict a slip-up in the middle of the season to Michigan State or Northwestern, I can’t bring myself to do it. Bolden should wrap up the starting job as his own by the Temple game and instill confidence in his teammates all season. Expect another New Year’s Day bowl game in sunny, hopefully not rainy, Florida, whether it be in the Gator, Outback or Capital One.

Tim
Projected record: 11-2 (bowl win included)
Player to watch: Jack Crawford, DE
I truly believe Penn State is going to surprise people in Tuscaloosa. I won’t predict a win yet, but I feel they will win at least one of their buzz saw road games (Alabama, Iowa, Ohio State). I believe Penn State will end up in the Orange Bowl or, at the very least, the Capital One, and win. By the end of the season, Royster will surpass Curt Warner’s career rushing record by 1,000 yards, and fans will finally have faith in their quarterback (Robert Bolden) again.

Mike
Projected Record: 8-4
Player To Watch: Robert Bolden, QB
As things stand now, I see Penn State losing to Alabama, Ohio State and Iowa. I also think we could lose a home game to a team like Northwestern or Michigan State. Bolden is going to be the difference maker. If he plays well along with the rest of the talent that Penn State possesses, we could go 10-2. However, if he plays poorly, we could see four or five losses. One thing remains certain, though. Regardless of the team’s ability, I am sure Iowa will find a way to ruin our season.
