Trash Talk and Joepa Fashion

The Lions are 6-0 and are starting to get fat and happy, perhaps, even a little cocky. I'm not saying the following isn't true. However, why couldn't we let all this wait until after the game.

First, Norwood is going to be back to face Wisconsin. From what the program is saying, this isn't going to be a hobbled Norwood. Rather, the word is that Norwood will be ready to go full speed and, despite his recent return from injury, Jordan had to talk a little trash:
"I'm going to love it," he said. "I can't wait to get out there. I can't wait to see the atmosphere, can't wait to hear the fans yelling at us. Hopefully, we're going to be able to quiet them down a little bit."
Second, the Penn State linebackers are ready for PJ Hill. If they aren't right now, they had better be come Saturday. Nittany Nation has been divided on whether Josh Hull is worthy of the of being MLB for PSU. Regardless, he has been playing well of late and is ready to talk some trash about a potent rushing attack:
"All three linebackers this week are looking forward to punishing P.J. Hill every time he carries the ball," Hull said on a conference call Wednesday. "We want to hit him from the time the game starts to the time the game ends. We want to make him wish he wasn't carrying the ball by the end."
You had fucking better be, Josh! After saying this I am expecting PSU to bottle up Hill and dominate the line of scrimmage. This isn't the sort of thing you want to see in the papers on thursday. After all, Wisky's entire game plan is going to be to control the ball and keep PSU's offense off the field. If the Lions fail to get the offense the ball it could be a painful game to watch for the Blue and White.

Finally, I love Joe's blue tie with white whales. I know it is a JCrew tie, however, they don't currently offer it on the Jcrew website. Has anyone been able to find said tie? Let me know.
