Nice post! My prediction is that they are better next year but still a major work in progress because they are shifting into a completely different personality type and style from Hoke. Around year 3 they will hit their stride and have their most successful season, probably 10 or 11 wins. Year 4 some issues arise between Harbaugh and players or administration and he starts considering an NFL return which leads to major distractions and a slight fall off. Year 5 he leaves scUM to go back to the NFL....just my prognostication.

He is such a difficult personality to deal with though. It is not like he had an immediate turn around at Stanford. I think it will take some time for them to adjust to his way of doing things, they will have 1-2 years of success and then people will start getting tired of his BS and he will move on. You see it all the time at work, the people who come in and everyone thinks their great until they get to know them. Then after a while everyone starts to hate them and they move on...exactly what's happening in San Francisco right now.

What an idiotic statement by him. Aside from the first quarter we dominated that game, at their house, and you are going to try and say that they were the better team? I just wish they could connect a bullshit-o-meter on these guys to see if they actually believe what they are saying or just doing it to get a rise out of people.

Yep, we will get passed by people unless anarchy happens today. You can't just come out and play like that considering we are already playing with a poor perception nationally. Very inconsistent run defense, a fair amount of dropped passes, turnovers, inopportune penalties...definitely didn't give me the feeling we are a top 4 team. Also, let' not act like Minnesota is a good team, they will go to a bowl game against a mid-level Big 12 team and lose by 30 like they do every year.

St. Bernardus Christmas Ale is pretty fantastic, it can be difficult to find though. I think it is 10% or so, so a big bottle will warm you up pretty good.

No, he doesn't have a cannon but I place more value on accuracy and touch over arm strength. I think he has shown he throws an accurate on time ball when he is not rattled. I think it was obviously from the start the atmosphere shook him up quite a bit. Add to that the line looked lost at times and I didn't come out of that overly concerned about his arm strength. A guy that can throw a 60 yard bomb also hurts you when he can't time a crossing route to save his life.

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.

Comment 04 Oct 2014

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.

Comment 02 Oct 2014

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.

Comment 30 Sep 2014

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!

Comment 30 Sep 2014

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.

Comment 27 Sep 2014

Absolutely fantastic, I can't stand PSU or their fans...well deserved loss.

Comment 30 Aug 2014

Yes, Hackenberg is a stud...he is gonna be on his back a lot this year though...

Comment 30 Aug 2014

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.
