Alabi at 58 caught my eye...it'll be interesting to see which side of the line he lands on.
I think the football player is becoming more athletic overall. Quarterbacks are simply more versatile, perhaps out of necessity, as defenders are increasingly bigger, faster, stronger, etc.
Fullbacks are a near extinction, and the shelf lives of running backs are dwindling.
While I do believe dual threats bring more to the table, I don't think the value of pocket presence fades away - I think an effective quarterback must have that ability/skill, no matter the system.
I wouldn't trade any of them...and I was behind enemy lines when Penn State joined up (1994 was tough). I think there's a much bigger picture when assessing the Nittany Lion community.
Ohio State is a good ROI.
Climb aboard, brethren...there's room for you all.
I'm thinking the Thrillist might be atop my Meh list.
It's Monday, it's the off-season.
This is very helpful.
I like Nuernberger's potential, and I think he raises his game this year (dozens and dozens of extra points!), but I saw the Craddock kid from Maryland boot a 57 yarder against the Buckeyes in their game last season - he's clearly the class of the conference at placekicker.
I've lived in Maryland for about a decade now, work and live among their alumni. The move to the B1G has been overwhelmingly favored by most of the Terps I interact with - it's been beneficial for both sides.
I lived in Pennsylvania 20 years ago when the Nittany Lions joined up. No comment on the fan reactions I witnessed at that time.
Some things change, some things stay the same.
