Thanks Matt! I always am concerned at DT because it seems that’s an area we seem to be just ok at recruiting while OSU and Mich get 5* there year after year and am fully convinced a rotation of a few DT that can push the pocket is key to winning the B1G and getting into playoff contention.  May even just a hunch though.

Blog, I commend you on yeoman’s work during the stay at home order! 
would love if this all came true, worried about Leigh and Bowers more than anyone.

I’m not sure if you have any inside information, but if you considered an article about what a unofficial versus official visit looks like? Or perhaps what type of recruiting pitch Coach Franklin and the rest of the staff give to these kids? I was curious what they say and how that process works.

also any interest in a RLR/GIA combined post about the nonsense that is PSU/Iowa?

Matt- good article and conversation that looks more and more realistic every day. I do wonder if pushing back the games, which would include playing games right around this time next year, would do anything to stop the spread of the virus, and that’s assuming that everyone has access to a vaccine by this time next year to the security of having over 100,000 people in close quarters.

I hate to even bring up the thought, but I do wonder if we’re heading for a football season without fans in attendance. It would not be ideal, for the atmosphere, the players, the downtown state college economy, and others, but at least it should be pretty easy to stage a white out for every game…

Wait this cant be right, Rivals Mike just said PSU is slow in recruiting and it can’t be good!  Tengwall probably just accidentally wrote Penn State instead of Notre Dame.

incredible pickup...kudos to Jimmy and Traut for getting this ‘big fish’.

Great article - what is it about his offense that makes it click though? The Tanner Morgan quick ball out of your hands type of command for the offense?  That certainly contributes to lack of sacks.  Assuming Pat becomes the 2nd WR type of role in his offense too, right? Hopefully he can turn Jahan into a dangerous weapon this year.  Also looks like Dunmore put on some weight this year...ready for a breakout year perhaps?

This whole recruitment was bizarre...he committed because of the cows...? Let’s go go Cali and get Brock Lesnar or whatever the heck his name is and then Pat gets drafted in the top 10 next year and then e’rybody in the club gettin tipsy

Listen up… There’s absolutely nothing to worry about! This team has 20 wins…TWENTY WINS!  
I graduated in 2006… Are used to go to basketball games, or at least the majority of them during my freshman and sophomore year… Until I couldn’t take the pain anymore. Our best player at that time was Aaron Johnson. AARON JOHNSON.  Unless you actually followed Penn State basketball in 2002 and 2003, you probably don’t remember him. He ended up transferring to New Mexico. Or New Mexico State. I can’t remember, but that’s what we were working with at that time, people that were transferring to New Mexico and New Mexico State. Yikes.

This has been an absolute dream of a season… I’m pretty sure Penn State will end up with more wins this season than I saw in my entire undergraduate career. It is an amazing accomplishment especially for a school who is traditionally not put a large premium on basketball as it’s central sport.

Sit back and enjoy the ride! There may be a few more losses in our future… We may not win the Big Ten out right, we may not win the Big Ten tournament, but dammit, each and everyone of you reading this post right now should be proud, excited, and thrilled with what the team has accomplished this season!

PS I hope they were the black and pink uniforms for the entire NCAA tournament.
