I said it below, but it seems too obvious to me. I think they'll fake the jet sweep and either run Zeke or throw a short out to Thomas.

That is the huge question. I'm shocked at how many people just blanket assume our defense. Will be better, despite the fact that 3/4 of our dline hasn't done anything of note. Urban famously said, "if you want to see a bad football team, have a bad dline." We need them to be above average to get our defense where we want it to be.

Got to beat the best to be the best. Bert will be the last football coach on earth before I root for a team he coaches.

DJ leaving the skull session is an every day hangover for me. If the new guy doesn't title game days "get dumped then" I'm going to revolt.

Are we that stacked? Do we have more than 3 TE's on scholarship right now? Only one of which has significant playing time.

We'll be stacked, cuz we have a couple of big time recruits lined up for 2016, but I'd argue it's a position of limited depth. Certainly relative to the rest of the team.

Yeah and it's a sliding scale. It's not "they have an advantage or they don't." Of course they have an advantage. Is it the biggest home field advantage is college sports? General consensus is no. But is it like playing in the Big House, where there is basically no noise retention (and a shitty team and weak crowd)? No, it's much more difficult than that.

Judging the home field advantage by wins and losses alone is sort of oversimplifying it. That would imply that PSU last season had zero home field advantage, because we won the game. Watching the game, you know that is obviously not that case.

They'll be loud and rowdy. It is an advantage. Especially the first game out of the gate with a ton of new talent (mostly WRs) getting broken in.

Nobody is more elusive than Braxton. Nobody.

Samuel runs very hard and is fast as hell but it's not like he lit it up in the spring at the H. If he gets the nod it'll be a better grasp of all of the responsibilities. But I think they'll all play a lot and motion around and confuse everyone and score touchdowns and be wonderful.
