Bastards. A team on the rise.

A big F you to our new AD, who dared speak out.

Interesting. They've front-loaded the crossover games. If this year is any guide, Illinois might be the toughest of the three.

Also, there's a big fat error in that link. It has us playing two games on November 11. In reality, the Massachusetts game is on October 14. Pretty bizarre mistake there. Everything else looks right though.

Is this real in that they put Penn State on the road again to open their B1G slate? Seriously? Is anyone competent in the B1G scheduling department? Serious question.

The problem isn't competence...it's integrity. That's always been the problem in this crappy conference.

Is this schedule official and legit? The PSU ticket office a few weeks ago claimed the official would not be out until Feb/March.

The UMass game was originally Nov 11, seems like it was just moved to Oct 14, perhaps as part of this schedule release.

Previous 2023 schedule for PSU:

Sept 2 WVU
Sept 9 Delaware
Sept 16 at Illinois
Sept 23 at Northwestern
Sept 30 OFF
Oct 7 Indiana
Oct 14 at Michigan St
Oct 21 at Ohio St
Oct 28 Iowa
Nov 4 Michigan
Nov 11 UMass
Nov 18 Rutgers
Nov 25 at Maryland

Not that I'm justifying always starting on the road for conference games, but FWIW...

Every conference team except PSU and Illinois had non-conference games scheduled for 9/16. PSU was expected to play Illinois and have it be away (we played them home last time in 2021). So, basically there's the following things that could have been done given those parameters:

1. PSU played Illinois away 9/16
2. PSU (and Illinois) had a bye 9/16. PSU could then open conference play at home 9/23
3. PSU could not have a conference game on 9/16 and gotten UMass to move that game to 9/16 (though UMass already has a game scheduled then vs Eastern Michigan, so probably not really an option)
4. Other Big Ten teams would need to move existing non-conference games off 9/16 to be able to schedule PSU with a different opponent (at home).

It's crap that PSU has constantly opened on the road, but I think the writing was on the wall for this particular situation. We were playing at Illinois that weekend under the old schedule too.

We have two home games before having to head to Illinois so I am not so worried about this. It's not like the last two years when we have had to go on the road in game one.

Thanks, that helps explain the weird screw-up in the OP link containing the schedule.

But as Spin suggested, with this conference you can't rule out they'd schedule us to play two games on one Saturday.

I kid...but not much.
