NCAA = "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain"
More details surfaced in this interview of the plaintiff's lawyer who is also a Penn State grad on Penn Live: https://www.pennlive.com/pennstatefootball/2020/01/lawyer-representing-isaiah-humphries-in-lawsuit-against-penn-state-this-isnt-horseplay-its-dominant-vulgar-misconduct.html
I'm speculating but I would think on the timeliness of this situation alone could bring at a minimum similar circumstances/punishment that could get Franklin suspended much like it did for Urban reading the lawyer's comments on the complaint. I'm not a legal expert, just reading between the lines, if someone wants to confirm or deny this thinking, feel free to chime in. But I don't think this kid is just out to make a buck out of this situation, I do think he is probably getting attention that will be distracting and embarassing. With that said, anything is possible after the Manti T'eo situation, so we wait until this plays out for sure and the facts are revealed.
According to NBC Barber had violated student code of conduct although it wasn't specified what occurred, this potentially could solidify the claim to some extent, I still think we need more info to be certain: https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/lawsuit-claims-penn-state-football-players-threatened-sandusky-teammates-hazings-n1115511
You can say that again
This is a refreshing comment, if you don't know how use a potato peeler it might take you forever to make mashed potatoes. We had guys in place to do the job they just were used wrong and the sea change at defensive coaching was what led to better outcomes. I do think it was rather unreasonable to expect us from getting gashed frequently to be a completely shut down defense to be quite remarkable as much as it did and keeping Clemson in the 20s is a keeper on most days as OSU's offense should be able to score 28+ on most days. Today's football also isn't the same game Jack Tautm played either, you can get away with facemasking as an offensive player but you must be sinless on defense because you should just be expected to get a yellow flag. I suspect with another year with coach Washington and a unit that mostly returns should improve to another point of being a strength. My hope is that we have a rotation of guys that get meaningful time throughout the year and not only in blow outs.
I'm thinking Wade should stay too, get the top 5-10 money next year and build to get that nice second contract. Being the guy for a year will build him up nicely like it did to Jeff.
They can also offer $300,000 to players. Don't believe me? Just ask Rashan Gary...
Chrisman is coming back
With the Second Pick, the Washington Buckeyes select...
