I am a Penn State fan who is delighted that Nebraska has joined the Big Ten. But......there is an ulterior motive to my joy. After Penn State joined the Big Ten, PSU was burned so badly, and so regularly, by crooked B1G officials that JoePA had the conference institute instant replay!
This is not a joke.
This conference has very bad officiating, and your dearly-beloved Cornhuskers are about to get a taste of it. You will have no chance to win a close one in Madison if they have a say in the matter.
Maybe your pain will not last as long as the Nittany Lions, if expansion comes sooner than 2028, but, for now, you folks will see what these good people from the Mississipi and Ohio watersheds can do to a fair football game.
During the first year after the institution of instant replay, PSU had 8 of 9 replays go in their favor. The rest of the nation has about a 50-50 record. The likelyhood of having that many replays go in your favor is about the same odds as winning the lottery two days in a row.
So, thank JoePa for the instant replay, but realize that there are many judgement calls that are not reviewable, and, take note of how many go your way during the next eight games.
Thanks for joining the Big Ten.
Here's one Nittany Lion who wishes you well, especially in light of the punishment you will take from the 'officiating'.
For The Glory,
Joe From Boalsburg
