Illinois' 33-13 victory over Penn State is being described as the Nittany Lions' biggest humiliation in Beaver Stadium in the 18 seasons since the team joined the Big Ten.
David Jones of the Patriot-News says the worst is yet to come.
"How has it gotten to this juncture so quickly? It wasn't that quick. Penn State has finally reached the point — about six years after I thought it had already permanently arrived — where it can no longer compensate for the age of its coach. Its diligent assistants can no longer recruit necessary talent around the denigrating whispers of their competitors on the recruiting trail. And they apparently cannot subvert his reactionary strategic tendencies on the field.
"It's sad to say it. But it all points in that direction."
Jones was just getting warmed up.
