Is that NaVorro Bowman in the Penn State section of the commercial? Nice get.
Pryor lost a QB battle in Oakland last year to Matt McGloin. What more is there to say? If he wants to play in the NFL, he's going to be a practice squad QB at best. Somebody mentioned CFL, and I could see that happening too.
You know these are staged commercials, right? Those "Penn State fans" all live in Connecticut. (Then again, maybe they are PSU fans.)
I think something some folks should always consider too is that this great problem might lead to a transfer. Miller wants to be in the NFL—ASAP too—and riding the bench or sharing time won't do him any favors. That's a scenario I think should at least be looked at, because it very well could happen with JT's improvement.
The way MSU is dropping teams, they're going to be hard to pass on this poll at this time.
This Penn State team isn't good, as we expected. I'm surprised they made it to 4-0. Still, that night game on the road is worth being concerned about, because their rush defense is pretty good.
Thanks Birm. Didn't think he'd commit this weekend anyways, especially for a game like OSU-UC. He'll be taking his other officials.
That ship has sailed with PSU's sanctions over and Franklin, but you're right in that they "could" have been.
Pat Fitzgerald's comments made me laugh. I feel for the guy, but he's a little punky, too.
I really hope they don't to be honest. I like him being there. He gives me comfort.
Look man, it's cool you're passionate about your beliefs. We just need to agree to disagree here.
Well said. Thank you. I can't believe we're even discussing the "unfairness" of Spence's suspension.
They already beat Akron, who might be the MAC's best team.
OSU, Wisky, MSU, PSU, Nebraska. That's it. NIU, Akron and Toledo would give the rest headaches.
So Spence should not be suspended because drugs aren't bad? OK. Got it.
True. They should both warrant the same penalty, though, that penalty should still be what it is: permanent suspension. We're talking about a guy here who has a drug problem, and possibly a serious one at that. It's not about football at this point.
Odds of him NOT transferring or going pro are rather nil. May reported that he's likely done as a Buckeye.
Washington State's offense (Leach) vs. Penn State's offense (Franklin) isn't much of a comparison. On the same token, Leach is where he is today because he's never had a defense either.
Not even a comparison. When you throw 40+ times a game, you're gonna have INT's. Penn State sinks or swims depending on that kid.
Going with Hackenberg, only because he's that entire offense right now. And he's going to look great in Cleveland in two years.
Birm, what will it take for Ohio State to get back to first place in B1G recruiting, or is that out at this point with their scholarships back? I'd love to keep the recruiting crown streak going.
Well said. +1
Give it a few years and Penn State will be thee hardest game on the schedule, especially with the pace of Franklin's recruiting.
I think there'd be something nice about, say, the Orange Bowl, and beating, say, Auburn. Get the youngsters a nice win. All we've heard is "Meyer has nothing to hang his hat on"... and that's fair. Getting thrusted into the playoff at #4 doesn't sound very fun because, frankly, I don't trust that this team—right now—could hang with a #1.
A question to ask: Would you even want Ohio State to play in the playoff? Exposure is good, but I'd rather a nice solid bowl win than get thrown into a cage with Florida State.
