Tell me why my PSU concerns are unfounded!!

 

Ok, many people think I’m a total pessimist but let me say I do think Bama will win Sat. However, I have concerns about this game. Probably more concerns now than I had during the summer. So, read my concerns and tell me where I am wrong.

Concern #1: I’m not sold on our secondary. Lester is my biggest concern. He can be burned for big plays. I also think that when we are in the dime package we are vulnerable. We are playing a true freshman (Milliner), a juco guy that is not, by his own admission 100%, (Menzie), and a walk on, short white guy (Lowery.) I get very concerned with these guys on the field along with Lester.

Concern #2: Upshaw & Dareus. We’ve lost Dareus and we sure can’t afford not to have the "big" body of Upshaw at least at 95%. We could suddenly be not so strong on our front 7.

Concern #3: Pass rush. I know OTS is not worried about this but I sure thought Square, Davis, Sentimore, or somebody on the front 3 would put SJS’s QB on the ground. They didn’t. I know we have "packages" we did not use, but I’m concerned because I suspect PSU will have better protection "packages" than SJS. And, if we can’t put pressure on their QB then concern #1 becomes an even bigger concern. And where was Williams Sat.?

Concern#4: PSU will come to pass. I was surprised at how PSU did not run that well against YS, and did not try to run that much. But, they passed pretty well. Well, I think the reason is that PSU is planning on being a huge passing team this year. I think PSU also took notice of our horrible 1st scrimmage. I really think they will put the ball up 35-40 times against us. And in this I hope I am wrong. I want them to run the ball against us. A hot humid day that turns into a slugfest is great as we can wear them down on both fronts. But, quick strike passing could wear us down.

Concern#5: Win one for the old man. We have a huge target on our back. Joe Pa is going to get to 400 this year and he is going to quit. This is his last shot at Alabama a team he is 4-8 against all time. We are playing in Bryant-Denny Stadium the home of the one coach that Joe Pa could not beat in life or death. I think a win against a #1 ranked Bama on his last try would help the old man rest easy in his retirement (however long or short that may be.) We have more talent than PSU, but I am afraid they may well be more motivated.

Ok, please tell me that these concerns are unfounded so I can go to T-Town this weekend and relax before the game.
