Clausen to Start Against Penn State

Jimmy "God" Clausen to start against Penn State

A pretty big leap of faith for Charlie Weis. Seriously, Clausen is about to make his first start in what may end up being the most hostile environment that he will ever play in college or pro (assuming he gets that far, unlike another ND golden boy by the name of Ron Powlus).

Personally I think Demetrius Jones gives ND the best chance to win against Penn State. Juice Williams managed to keep Illinois competitive with PSU last season by running the option until PSU's defense finally figured out how to stop it.

This is a baptism by fire for Clausen. Troy Smith couldn't handle it. What makes anyone think a week will be enough time to get Clausen ready? I almost feel bad for the kid. He 's going to get the crap beat out of him on Saturday night and then be berated by ND's less than understanding fans come Sunday.

Thanks. I like my gig over at MVN but I really missed having a place where I could throw up an article and a few words whenever I felt like it rather than having to come up with well thought out compositions when I posted.
