Awaiting Alabama

How do you get ready for Alabama by playing Indiana State?

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.

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.

About this blog
Don McKee arrived at the white Inquirer building the same month (August of 1974) that Richard Nixon departed the White House, but claims no connection. He has covered Penn State football, the Flyers of Fred Shero, the Eagles of Dick Vermeil and backed up several beats. After 25 years covering high school sports in three cities and two states, he says the only teams he is allowed to root for are Conrad Weiser High School and Penn State, his two alma maters. LIKES: Straight talk. HATES: Spin doctoring and mindless devotion to conventional wisdom. Reach Don at dmckee@phillynews.com.
