I think more flips are in the future of PSU when the Franklin effect wears off. Let us hope most stay in the BIG. I also think at regular seasons end and PSU recruits watch other teams in bowl games not far from signing day, some might rethink.

Just want to include a link to a write-up on the news from PennLive (via The Harrisburg Patriot-News):

Recruiting is good for the conference and all that, but it would be kind of funny to see a mini-Rutgers situation in Happy Valley, just to knock them back down a few pegs.

The postgame show is brought to you by... Christ, I can't find it. The hell with it...

I think PSU's class will take a hit when the losses start coming in. The playing time pitch can only go so far.

Agreed I think it's only a matter of time until recruits realize the novelty wears off.

I would've much rather him have stayed at PSU instead of going to the second worst school in the world.  I'm glad PSU is having their success.  The B1G needs it desperately.  Just like Urbz says, you can't be afraid of competition.

Exactly. Until the perception of the conference gets better, every team in the B1G will have an uphill battle to make the playoffs as a one loss team. I'd rather Wisconsin, PSU, MSU, Nebraska, and ttun all return to consistent top 25 teams. If we can't beat them in the regular season when they are good or great, then we aren't good or great enough to survive the playoff.

still have a pretty awesome collection of talent at this point. I would expect others to begin to question their early commit to PSU as the season progresses/the excitement wears off and reality sets in. But for now, this is just a prick rather than a sledgehammer. Id like a flip from PSU to OSU, but thats wishful thinking.

Rather have Waller or Gibson.

When Barajas flipped, there was a PSU fan on twitter that was tweeting at him saying that if he stayed at PSU he would have a chance to win a NC in the next 2 years or less and had a better chance than Notre Dame. Then he started to cuss him out. Classes and delusional. 

Mac..yeah

Less? They won't be in a bowl game a year from now. :/

Classes and delusional. 

Nothing new.

I thought it was clear that's who I was directing it towards.
