Awaiting Alabama

QUESTION NO. 1. Now that Penn State has subdued that old terror Indiana State, proving we can compete with Villanova and Delaware at the upper reaches of the coveted Football Championship Subdivisions, is there a ray of hope for a breakout victory next week vs. the 'pros in waiting' from Alabama?  Didn't think so.


How many games will Penn State win this year, including a bowl?

QUESTION NO. 2.   Are we seeing the beginning of a Phillies bullpen fatigue issue?  Charlie had to use David Herndon tonight because he no longer trusts Michael Stutes in the 8th inning of a one-run game.  If Lidge, Herndon and Stutes are too shaky to beat the Florida Marlins on Sept. 3d, how will they be in Fenway in October?  Thought so.
