Penn State fans’ hope for the 2015 football season came to a roaring stop at the beginning of September when the Nittany Lions suffered a devastating 10-27 loss to Temple University.
The loss came as a big shock to most of the fans as they watched the team lose big in their season opening game.
“I was very disappointed in the team’s performance,” said sophomore, Josh Taylor. “In 74 years, they have never played like that against Temple.”
Since that game, Penn State has done much better with wins against Buffalo, San Diego, Rutgers and Army. However, they will have to face some much harder teams like Michigan and Ohio State in the near future.
Some of the players have a lot of proving to do such as third year starting quarterback, Christian Hackenberg. Though he was projected first in the 2016 draft, he has yet to display that talent on the field.
“I think he needs to make better decisions with his passing, but it is not all his fault.” said freshman, Ben Hornberger. “The play calling is bad and the line can’t block.”
Many fans haven’t been all too thrilled with the calls from Head Coach James Franklin either. “To be honest, every single game, I question Franklin’s offensive play calls.” said sophomore, Micah Davis. “But he’s got a fire in his heart for the game and he’s one of the best leaders I’ve ever seen.”
Though PSU got off to a bit of a rocky start, their fans continue to support them and hope that they can finish out their season better than the way it started.
“Go Blue!” said Davis.
