Poll: Was Penn State Right to Score on Last Play Against WVU?



Penn State HC James Franklin

As the clock ticked down on Penn State’s opening night win against West Virginia, something happened that sparked controversy throughout the realm of local college football.

With six seconds remaining in the game and backups playing on both sides, quarterback Beau Pribula scored from five yards out to add another seven points. As a result, Penn State covered the -20.5 spread and the over for the game.

WVU HC Neal Brown was asked about it after the game, to which the fifth-year coach had an interesting response to.

“I wouldn’t have done but it doesn’t bother me. Stuff like that comes back around,” Brown said.

    They should have kneeled because the game was over already. What else would you expect from Pedophile U? No class Even Pitt fans hate Pedophile U. That’s right what goes around comes around. We will never forget about the Pedophile sex traffickers at that disgusting school!!!!

    Give me a break. PSU was 100% within their rights to score that touchdown, and they even did it with reserves. Out of 100 reasons for points of improvement for WVU, spending time on this issue like Neal Brown did on this issue has to item #150.

    How about this poll: Was WVU right to spend time on the spinning huddle, and actually use it in front of a nationally-televised audience, when other areas have more pressing needs, such as Pass-O and Pass-D?

    The game isn’t over and with a backup QB and we still couldn’t stop them…go for it.

    All players deserve to play and gain experience. Maybe WVU should get there players as much experience as possible. What does taking a knee gain. A loss is a loss. Get over it. focus on something that makes you team better.

    PSU wanted to beat the spread because it wants to make it to the championship round, and it has to show impressive margins to convince the selection committee.
    I wish WVU had blitzed a couple times during that last drive because each time it did the PSU QB struggled. The replacement QB would have no different. WVU had nothing to lose by blitzing.
    But most impartial viewers saw WVU hold its own, and PSU adding that last TD meant nothing as far as impressing anyone.

    Not butt hurt about it but it was unnecessary. I would have been upset if one of our starters got injured. Imagine PSU fan reaction if Michigan does the same thing with a lead and 11 seconds left, only to see Chop Robinson, who’s been in 50+ plays and has a bright NFL future, break his leg in a scrum due to a meaningless touchdown, because of the opposing coach’s ego to not take a knee.
