Fully agreed, Spooner. No doubt, Day knows the exact intricacies of the 25-cap soft or hard, and has a defined plan for it. It'll all workout, just fine.

Don’t need me to tell you this, but something stinks to the high heavens, folks. Penn State was already limping on the recruiting trail, and now has lost two four-star offensive tackles in the last four days.

From Black Shoes Diaries own author Patrick Koerbler. He isnt wrong. And oh, oh, oh... the comments. Complete denial.

I won't lie, his defenses were really good against Urban Meyer led offenses.

Were they though? We've scored >40 points in 4 of the last 6 games of the series. 

In general, I will agree: scUMs defense has looked really stout against many teams, whereas ours last year looked stout against almost no one. I think the big thing will be that everything is simplified schematically. Complicated doesnt always mean better, so hopefully that helps the D/LBs play more freely. Probably more zone coverage than we've seen in the past. And hope-to-God better technique. 

I think its been well documented that overall, we might see something like a 4-2-5 defense, using the nickel or whatever the call it (the Gerbal Peppers position) to roam as a third S/LB combo (calling Brenden White).

Thanks for the update, Andy. 

The idea of Singletary moving down next year is interesting... do you think its a real possibility? 

Edit: I'm losing my mind, Moore has one more year, so that complicates that thought for next year. But, the year after that would make sense.
