Hopefully this isn't an errant false memory, but I recall him making an insane play, I think on special teams, as a freshman, coming out of nowhere to keep a punt returner from scoring inside the 10.  Roby was hella fast.

This.  If it isn't Luke, and Mike's not already winning Super bowls as an NFL HC.

A decade from now...Kenny Guiton.

No doubt.  He's looked great.  But playing against backup on bad teams, or tired starters with a game out of reach.  So grain of salt, yadda yadda.  But he made quick decisions and throws a beautiful f'ing ball.  I for one would have no worries about him stepping in.

However....If Haskins can sling it as well, he fits the mold better than Joe.  And with Jones coming in '18 as a better version of Terelle Pryor, I think whoever ends up #3 would be better served transferring.  Won't play much this year, so sit out anyway and get 3 years to run a team.  JMO

Feel free to bookmark this and mock me 4 years from now, but I don't think Tate is going to start a game for us, barring injury to a starter.  Emory Jones, if he ends up part of the '18 class, is gonna be legendary. Until then, Haskins is gonna be tough to beat out.

Just my take. Tate is a great player, and by all accounts an awesome guy. But knowing what the rest of that QB room looks like in 2 years....I just don't see him beating out Haskins or Jones.

Whatevah.  It was a legitimate concern that Washington would get in and it come down to us or PSU.  Given we lost to them, and they won the hardest conference in the country, while being one of the hottest teams over the last 2 months, it was entirely reasonable to accept the possibility the committee would put them in over us.  

It wasn't pessimism.  It was, I think, a fair reading of the situation.  It wasn't an outcome I wanted, but one I thought plausible. Why that amuses you...

The most ridiculous part is they say he played 10 positions, but count every DB spot (including "nickle") as different, and all three WR positions as unique.  If you are a LB who stays on the field when the D would normally go into a nickle package, you are still a LB. And DB positions differ based on the coverages called.

I like Peppers.  I think, based on what I know about him, he's a pretty unique guy, and he's a tremendous athlete.  But I am pretty sure that Jerome Baker is probably the best RB/HB on our team or theirs.  But we only need him to play LB.  Peppers is  a smaller Darren Lee on a team that needs him to play everywhere.
