With the delayed effect of the scholarship reductions and the lack of line recruits under O'Brien, I think the higher ups at Penn State expected this to be the low point right around now. I think Franklin gets the benefit of the doubt - and another 2-3 years - for sticking it out as the effects of the sanctions flush through the program.

Thanks! I re-watched and I STILL didn't see the rumored "schematic advantage" Oklahoma was bringing to bear!

I've been impressed with how Weber always seems to be so close to breaking one long. He has had So many shoestring tackles in the first 3 games. It seems like a matter of time.

On another note, can we retire "sticks his foot in the ground" already as a catchphrase? Herby and Palmer already wore that one out the past two weekends...

LSU was supposed to get its braces off and clear up its acne this summer, right?

Nope, still ugly

Based on returning starters, I am OK with this list. The best thing is, with our talent level, everyone will be asking "Who are these guys?"

Comment 19 Aug 2016

I totally agree with the above comments. I always heard about the CEO approach and not knowing the players names, but the thing that stood out watching Cooper's teams is that they seemed to be really bad at scouting themselves. They didn't evolve as the season went on and teams caught on to OSU's tendencies.

There was a CFB announcer last year - don't remember which - who used "sticks his foot in the ground" regularly, as in "watch him stick his foot in the ground and make that cut".

Where else is he gonna stick his foot?

I have the same impression that they didn't run it as much. I'd like the X's and O's guys to weigh in: was it personnel, results - like BuckeyeCity says -  or are we seeing a shift/evolution of Urban Meyer's offense?

Being a Ravens fan, I saw a lot of Simon in the pre-season and I thought he did enough to make the active roster. The Ravens are very deep at linebacker though where they had him projected. I love the fact he's playing even if it isn't for my team!
