This episode of Arm Tackles looks at how badly the Penn State Nittany Lions are at winning, the Louisiana-Lafayette Rajin' Cajuns, and the story of the two Jims. We even through in a Randy "Macho Man" Savage tribute for good measure.

Someone at Penn State is betting against the Lions
Is there an uglier 6-1 team than Penn State? Not counting their first win against Indiana State, the Nittany Lions have won their five games with margins of:

@ Temple: by 4
Eastern Michigan: 28
@ Indiana: 6
Iowa: 10
Purdue: 5

They've scored less than 16 points four times. Yet, they are 6-1. The telling number is 1-6. That's their record against Vegas odds. Penn State is winning, but definitely not impressing.

From my Top 25:
After going 3-9 last season, and 6-6 in 2009, the Ragin' Cajuns are 6-1 with new coach Mark Hudspeth. The Cajuns could go to their first bowl game since 1970! The announced attendance for Saturday night's game against North Texas was 32,823 in a stadium with a capacity of 31,000. Their 6-1 start is the best start ever for a Sun Belt Conference team. It will be a crying shame if Hudspeth doesn't get some serious consideration for national coach of the year for a team that was predicted to be one of the worst in the country.

May The Schwartz Be With You
I  don't see what the big deal is between the two Jim's. I didn't notice anything about the force or push that Harbaugh supposedly gave Schwartz. I hope it's over and we can move on. I saw more on twitter about their altercation than I did about the final outcome of the game. And the NFL did the proper thing for not fining them. What would they fine them fore, anyway? Pointing fingers at each other? I think the only joke writers left out is what would happen if Harbaugh and Schwartz went at it. Would one Jim . . . . wait for it . . . snap into a Slim Jim? RIP Macho Man.
