What went wrong in Penn State’s 42-7 blowout loss to Michigan in Ann Arbor Saturday? Did anything go right? Where does the program go from here? Will we see more of Tommy Stevens at quarterback moving forward? Or is the hobbled Trace McSorley still the man? We are about to answer all of those questions and much more.
Welcome to the podcast version of “The Nitwits” TV show, featuring Penn State beat veterans Mark Brennan of Lions 247 With Fight On State (me) and Neil Rudel of the Altoona Mirror. We are now in our 21st year of leading a weekly roundtable discussion of the Nittany Lions during the college football season. For folks who would like to listen to the show on the run, we offer it here in podcast format.
This week, the Nitwits are joined by former Nittany Lion and original Nitwit Mike Irwin, who was Joe Paterno’s first captain. The crew dives into the debacle that was the Nittany Lions’ ugly performance in the Big House, giving honest assessments of what happened to James Franklin‘s team in the game. The guys also look ahead to the Wisconsin game and provide score predictions.
Be sure to check out FOS/247 every week for the podcast version of The Nitwits, as we kick around the latest Penn State game and everything else that is going on with the program.
This podcast is also available on iTunes. We are just keeping the old FightOnState.com channel going so people know where to find past episodes of our podcasts.
OUR GUEST: Mike Irwin lettered at Penn State from 1964-66, playing primarily as a defensive back and punt returner. He has been a longtime financial analyst in the Altoona area. But he has stayed plugged in with the Nittany Lion football program through the years and was an original member of The Nitwits panel.
