Penn State Football: Depth Chart for the Indiana Game

 Will Penn State avoid another crushing loss and keep me from punching another hole in my wall? Let’s find out!

I can say without hesitation that last week was the most frustrated I have been in many years with a Penn State team.

The difference in talent was abosolutely astounding, and the less talented team won. Michigan State, battling key injuries, had nowhere near the depth of Penn State, and frankly, they didn’t play all that well.

Penn State just played so hilariously poorly that Beaver Stadium was covered with hair freshly pulled out of fans heads.

Unless we can hit a magical restart button on this season, Penn State will not be in the college football playoff, but there are still some huge opportunities on the schedule for a big win.

Indiana is an improved team and will look to pounce on the wounded Nittany Lions.

Let’s see who Penn State is rolling out this week to avoid three losses in a row. Gulp.

Fred Hansard and Ellison Jordan are both out with injuries, leaving defensive tackle razor thin. Antonio Shelton is back on the depth chart following the half game suspension he was required to serve following a targeting hit against Ohio State.
