Great Expectations?

The off-season is the time for speculation and dreaming of the glory that awaits in the coming season. That's why we posed a question regarding how Penn State was going to fare in the 2010 season.

The possible results were that Penn State wins the following number of games: 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12?

Over 180 votes later, 22% of our readers think that PSU will win 8 games. 35% believe that PSU will claim 9 victories and that 21% are convinced PSU will win 10 games. Any of these outcomes are perfectly plausible.

Personally, I think that PSU will win 8 games this year based on the facts that PSU is inexperienced at quarterback and unproven on the offensive line. This, combined with the fact that PSU has a murderous road schedule leads me to believe that PSU is going to fall 4 times this year.

However, the folks who believe that PSU will win nine games aren't really optimists, rather, they simply believe that PSU will win all the games in which they are favored. Certainly not unreasonable position. Really, nobody should be surprised regardless of the outcome of this season.

One thing is for sure, this season should be a great ride.
