Thoughts on the win over Northwestern?

We're totally unanimous on Matt McGloin, but he - like the entire team - has been resilient over the past four games. Total heart from everyone. McGloin, albeit against Northwestern, threw the football 51 times, completed well over 50% of his passes, and did not turn the ball over through the air. It was a complete performance from the offense and it was nice to see both Zwinak and Robinson continue to perform well -- Robinson especially.

Like most, I'm still waiting for Bill Belton to really become a weapon for us. He's quite obviously still making the adjustment, but when he finally starts putting his talent on display, we'll only benefit that much more.

Quite obviously, this Penn State team was never 'bad', not by any means. We had a good, solid squad going into the year and that's been the case thus far in the season through six games. Funny thing is we very much should be 5-1 right now.

Resiliency. It will be the theme of this 2012 Penn State team all throughout this season, and it will be how we remember them years later.

Mauti gets left off of the Lombardi award short list despite having a better season than many on it. 1.5 Sacks, 2 INT, 57 TKL (32 solo), 2 PD (2 time B10 D player of the week and 1 time national D player of the week)
Shame on you

Hodges is Big Ten D player of the week; Penn State linebackers have 3 out of the last 4.

If Zwinack had played vs Ohio and UVA, we might be.

Z's a classic overachiever. He's performed very well, but lets face it, he's not half the impact Silas Redd was/could have been. That being said, I don't think we can definitively say "If.........had happened, we'd be undefeated" -- it took us a couple games to really grasp O'Brien's offense and we've gotten things rolling properly. We continue to get better every week.

Some players are stepping up and will prove to be valuable for us in the future.

Given our situation, we really couldn't have asked for anything more.

I really hope we can win today. I have absolutely hated Iowa since we got jipped out of our chance at the NCG a few years ago on bogus PI call against Scirotto. Can't stand Iowa.

You guys are OSUs toughest challenge they face all year. I am incredibly nervous about playing in Happy Valley.

Penn State stole Iowa's soul/corn last night.
Crazy game stat:
Matt McGloin: 26 rushing yards
Iowa: 21 rushing yards

Mauti is playing as well as any LB in the country: 65 tackles, 36 solo, 3.5 TFL, 2.5 sacks, 3 INTs. He won't win the Butkus, Bednarik, or Lombardi trophies this year, because of the media's love for Manti, but he is just as good.

Next week is going to be nuts. Whiteout, 70's temp, 5:30 start, BOB has said 80-100 recruits will be at the game, top ten opponent, rivalry game, the team is riding a high... It seems like the perfect storm.

I like how Penn State matches up against Ohio State. PSU should be able to pass on them and the front seven will hopefully slow down their run game.

Jordan Hill was named B10 D Player of the Week. Penn State players have earned the award 4 out the 7 weeks they've played.

Kyle Carter was named B10 Freshman of the Week.

I expect nothing less from PSU than them playing with pride and resiliency.

Still very, very worried about the option component of Ohio State. Think they'll get some big yards to the outside on Saturday
