800th win = Roses

Saturday, November 22, 2008 ·

First, I just want to say I apologize to those who have come to the site over the last few days. I've been a little under the weather and I have not wanted to leave my bed at all after work.

Anyway, Penn State capped off Senior Day and their regular season with a 49-18 victory over Michigan State for their 800th win in school history. The win gives them a birth in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day and the Big 10 Championship crown.

Penn State Quarterback, Daryll Clark, had a fantastic game completing 16 passes for 341 yards and 4 touchdowns. Wide receivers Deon Butler, Derrick Williams, and Jordan Norwood all had fantastic games as they played their final game in Happy Valley. Deon Butler caught 3 passes for 133 yards and 3 touchdowns. Norwood caught 5 passes for 132 yards and Williams caught 4 for 51 yards and a touchdown. Penn State had 557 yards of total offense, including 419 in the air.

The first team defense was outstanding. They only allowed a touchdown ater Penn State was already up 28-0. The other 11 points were allowed late in the fourth quarter by the second team defense. It was an amazing performance and they held Javon Ringer to only 2.5 yards per carry, with a long of 9.

Penn State will wait to find out to see if they will be facing USC or Oregon State in the Rose Bowl. If Oregon State beats Arizona and Oregon, they will win the Pac-10 title via a tiebreaker over USC. USC has to deal with UCLA and Notre Dame.

A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
