If he was solid PSU it is strange that he would decommitt. I remember the USC kid last year doing that but strange. As they can decommit and go somewhere else as it is, the same day or whatever. As the whole thing means little.

Have to wait and see, but it is not ideal for PSU.

I am not sure I agree with covered up. As people were on him too. But, good play calling can play to teams strengths and help overcome weaknesses. For some reason, the coaches never did that last year. They refused to call screens despite issues with the line in pass protection and that being a great way to overcome the rush or poor protection to get the other side to back off.

I feel that there are a number of them really. Tennessee deserves to be up there because of how highly ranked they are and they keep falling apart. Notre Dame is along the same lines most years. I would say USC but the sanctions were an issue for quite a while for them. Georgia belongs up there, LSU and Michigan as well. The later is not horrible, but it gets old hearing they are back every year. It is like all they need is a winning season and they are good. 

Seems like the standard at a big time power school is to make it deep into the playoff. Not just only lose one or two games. They still have not beaten their rivals. They beat MSU last year but so did darn near everybody.

OU is the biggest test and early given their passing attack and OSU's young secondary. Almost the same as last year. There are a few tough road games like UM, Iowa and so on too. There are loads of tough games and not the cupcake games to start the year either. So, quick learning curve. 

As far as I know, this year does not have back to back weeks of teams with two weeks to prepare either. Which was pretty brutal and both were in their house in two loud stadiums.

Because Barrett stinks at winning football games? Haskins and Burrow to a lesser degree are unproven commodities. They have no stats to compare. The spring game is nice but does not mean anything in terms of final performance in the season. I think that you are making too many assumptions and putting words in people's mouths. 

Barrett is by far the most proven guy out there. I think Burrow and Haskins have better arms but Barrett's is not bad.

I feel that this style of play is more towards the offense than the defense at this point. There is a very young secondary that will have growing pains too. It is just the way that things go. So, a bit of both plus this style of play is a bit less physical and favors offense.

That hurts. It was an accident but at the same time. I would have trouble living with myself accident or not. I hope he can get whatever comfort and counciling he can. Heartbreaking.

They are phonies but that does not mean that the Conjuring was a bad movie was bad. It was pretty good. The second one was not as good. I agree that the ghost aspect as real is false, but one can make good fiction stories about things that are not real all of the time.

Playing IU and OU so early hurts a little. Particularly with a new scheme but they should be alright. I want to predict that they run the table, but they probably get a loss somewhere. I rather they not, and not sure where it would come from if it does. I do think they win the big ten and go 13-1 and make the playoff again. After that, who knows? 

The playoff will likely be OSU, Alabama, FSU and somebody

Hard to get to see too much when the play calling has not been too good. I am not sure he is the problem or was the problem rather. Will need to see this year how it shakes out.
