WHY PENN STATE’S 4-1 RECORD MAKES FOR AN UNHAPPY VALLEY!

By Peter Gleason

If you are wondering why there is consternation in UnHappy Valley after Penn State’s struggling 20-14 victory over Army yesterday, here’s why:

The Nits were fortunate Army starting quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw (undisclosed injury) didn’t play. He is more dangerous than backup A.J. Schurr and Schurr had the Lions on tilt in the second half.

Penn State (4-1, 1-0) found a way to win but you could argue the Lions were outplayed by Army.

Pass protection problems surfaced again, this time against a team not known for its pass rush.

James Franklin’s offensive line is still terrible, and QB Christian Hackenberg (above) spent most of the day scrambling.

Talented true freshman runner Saquon Barkley makes up for a lot of deficiencies when he’s healthy. When he doesn’t play — and he missed the Army game — the Lions will struggle against anyone.

PSU faces Big Ten teams the rest of the way and based on this effort, a seven-win season might be a reach.
