If we could get in I say let them put in two SEC teams and have them lose on either side of the bracket. It would be like a double shaming that they had twice the odds and neither team could get a win...sounds glorious.
And this post wasn't made with any malice or ill intent. I was just stating an observation that I, and many others, have had over several weeks of watching this defense.
I am not saying we have a better player behind Perry, I am just saying that is the big problem. We either haven't recruited or developed players better. McMillan should be playing pretty much every snap, I don't think that is very hard to see.
I used to really like Common Man and Torg. I have always liked Rothman, Bishop I can't listen to very much though. He is just one of those personality types that is ok in small doses but after a while it makes me cringe.
The long plays were upsetting in the moment but I would so much rather have that situation than a team having slow methodical drives all the way down the field on us like last year. I could definitely see improvement and much more sound tackling than the past couple of years. I hope they continue to improve and become what we thought they could be!
One of the things I am also curious about is if they can use this concussion situation as a breach of his contract, through failure to protect student athletes or misconduct. If so, they could cut ties and most likely not owe him much, if any, money.....just a thought.
Absolutely fantastic, I can't stand PSU or their fans...well deserved loss.
Yes, Hackenberg is a stud...he is gonna be on his back a lot this year though...
Yes, Penn State's offensive line is a mess...kind of hurts you if you do great recruiting skill players but don't build an offensive line.
Mix Breckenridge Vanilla Porter and Kentucky Bourban Barrel Stout equally into it....its phenomenal.
As painful as it is to think about the 2011 season we had an opportunity to win every game we lost that season except probably the Miami game. That happened without Urban Meyer or his recruiting, Tom Herman as offensive coordinator and Joe Bauserman splitting carries with a Freshman Braxton Miller, who didn't know the playbook and was being coached by Siciliano and Boelman....I think we will be OK.
Not saying Mauk isn't good but did you look at the receivers he was throwing those balls to? I would watch him play because he is an Ohio guy and I saw those guys make A LOT of plays on the ball. OSU's receivers have not really made big plays on the ball nearly as often over the past few years. I am just saying you can't say definitively that a guy that had 6 or 7 fairly productive games is going to be have a better career than someone that hasn't had the opportunity to show what he can do on the field....I am perfectly happy with our quarterback recruiting.
"Guys, we may not win a single game this season...but with God as my witness, we will be the best damn bus riders in college football!"
Thanks so much for all the comments and suggestions! I am excited to get moved in down there and check things out. It's nice that Columbus is only about a 6.5 hour drive so I can still make it back for some OSU games.
Thanks for the info! Yeah I am yet to hear a bad thing about Charlotte (besides OSU not being located there). I have looked into the alumni association a bit, probably be something I pursue once I get settled down there. I need to find a nice bar with a good craft beer selection and lots of televisions.
I think they have problems with their fans getting too drunk and causing issues. People I know from that miserable state have said that the people get just nasty sloppily drunk in East Lansing.
I think everyone knew he would recruit well, and honestly PSU should have been able to clean up that region of eastern PA into MD and NJ for years and haven't really done that. I am curious to see how good of a coach he actually is...his record at Vandy is deceptive because their non-conference schedules were pathetic and their wins against the decent SEC teams were while they were dumpster fires. Plus, almost anytime a new coach comes in there is a huge boost in recruiting...look at Kentucky and Tennessee. If I had to guess PSU will be a more talented team while he is there but a worst coached team than they were in previous years, so it will even out.
"The Cleveland Browns are the greatest sports franchise in the world."
I read this sentence and didn't know whether to chuckle or throw up in my mouth a bit....
I really think A&M will take a pretty big step back, like maybe win 6 or 7 games. Their defense was abysmal last year and I watched opposing defenses get pressure and stuff them pretty good until Manziel escape and throw up a prayer to Mike Evans...losing both of them to the draft will hurt them quite a bit.
Now if only our D can get more stops this year so more of these guys can get touches, so many players that I want to see what they can do!
I guess the sign out front that said "Pay Money to Make Friends" just wasn't cutting it anymore huh?.....
