And I know PSU fans think the entire rest of the world is wrong....... But they aren't on the BB list.

I mean, interesting, considering the list of blue bloods appears to be different depending on which source you’re consulting.

Haha its not only debatable but actually the source of heated debates every goddamm year. PSU is in that discussion. Facts not feelings.

The reason why PSU isn't on the list is because they almost never win when it REALLY counts. Only 2 NC's. When they win 3 more we can talk.

For the record I always remind PSU fans in real life of the 94 season lol which always gets them fired up. The reality of that season though is, PSU had a bad reputation in the football world even back then, before the scandal, which is why Nebraska was awarded the NC.

Edit to my last post, that wasn't the only reason Nebraska was voted NC that year. Everybody knew Neb was the better team.

I think 94 we deserved a shot at the championship but im not totally convinced we would have beaten Nebraska because for as good as our offense was (f***ing great) our defense was not of the same caliber and in fact was pretty mediocre. While your point about NC’s is valid I would also point to 5 undefeated, untied seasons, a couple uncontested B1G championships, a couple more shared ones, about 2 seconds from two more undefeated seasons in 05 and 08, one of the all time highest win percentages in football, 9th in all time wins. The list goes on and on and on. Im not pulling these numbers out of my ass, nor the opinion I extrapolate from them. Again, sir, facts. Not feelings.

Edit: not undefeated in 08, lost to a USC team that prob should have been in the NC game.

Not to mention where our team stands right now. We’re bringing in incredible talent and are clearly a top 10 caliber team for the foreseeable future (this year excluded) and will probably be in the playoff discussion more years than not. So, idk. I dont think my claims are baseless here.

I hear ya on the numbers, the facts, but they just can't get over the hump so to speak. Sometimes close, but not close enough and that is why they aren't a top 8 program.

lsu is objectively a more storied program than penn st in the past and present and have a much better shot of contending for a national title any given year. psu isnt top 10 and definitely below lsu
