They have two weeks to fix this mess. The OC has to go now, this play calling is beyond bad, no good in sight. The O-line is an issue for the, well I forget how many years, this coach needs to go too. If Franklin is going to salvage some degree of an ability to compete with whats coming now is the time to act. We are one of the most pathetic 3-0 teams in the country and the pollsters are beginning to see it too. Clifford is doing OK but he has a long way to go to be on Traces' level. Thank god we have the best kicking game I've ever, and that's a long time, see PSU ever have. If we start to falter this will add with the mess it is now to get in and out of parking; the large crowds will be no more.
Lucky to drop only one>
Its early, Hope I'm wrong but saw to many things Sat to feel they deserve the ranking. USC lost their QB against Fresno. They started another Freshman Sat and he was amazing, just saying. MSU really should be ahead too, since we can't beat them or out coach them.
Not much of a home schedule, Neb, Iowa, Minn, Ariz of course all away. Looks like I will have my surgery in Jan. which means no home matches for me anyway.
On a quick note for now I would move them down to one above MSU and slide in USC.
We are highly over rated by about 8-10 spots, sorry guys after Sat. I'm not convinced, especially after the amount of college ball I watch. I've lost interest with the over paid so called professionals, Love the Steelers but good god what was that last night?
We have another O line issue regardless of the D they played. We were exposed all over the place, even S. Jones on the radio said after the game we are looking at 8-4, 9-3 at best, if another repeat of that first half we could be in big trouble. Lets just say Idaho was a scrimmage, the Bulls were our first real game. Joe always said your biggest improvement is between game one and two. Pitt will be a good test of that theory. On a side note, Clifford is doing real good. Students were fired up they caused a penalty or two. The exit off Park Ave to Atherton after the game is a GD mess, even the St. Police directing were disgusted.
These clowns just don't seem to get the great opportunity they have. Don't even start the kids will be kids stuff. We have kids younger than them fighting and dying on a regular basis. They've had their warning next time out the door.
Great news! even if it's the Ravens. Yes, the naysayers can enjoy their crow pie. Just hope he doesn't work his magic against the Steelers.
Very weak opponent, probably as weak as I remember. What I did see was the fastest PSU team in my memory. Kicking game was great. Backs were excellent. O-Line blocked well. D-Line was strong. No dumb penalties. Next two weeks will reveal more of what we're all about.
Good god guys, Trace and Tommie are gone let it rest. This is the year I believe coaching has to improve and no stand-outs can pull them out of the fire. The OC is on the line most in my opinion, if we falter regardless of who QB's he must go. Franklin isn't gong anywhere but a bad showing this year could leave him on a hot seat. If we lose most of the big match-ups and a trap game this will start the dump Franklin movement.
The Defenses we sent to the Rose Bowls were horrible. Oregon, USC x2 made us look horrible which we were.
I don't remember him slingshotting anything. He was a drinker. Got a second chance and blew it. Guys like Marstellar and the transfer to Rutgers are the type I'm referring to in the same class as Teasdale. They were are all initial commits and then bailed. Apples and oranges my friend.
Whatever, not PSU material, we don't need, no matter how good problem children.
Again, I'm not sold on him because of big game flaws. I still think this year will tell more.
Pathetic, really? You don't consider those three bowl losses to real quality non Big 10 opponents (we don't play anyone in the regular season that compares) an issue? Well 2-3 is not good, PERIOD!
Now we have a problem. The ship jumping by these recruits goes with the portal jumps. What is the common denominator?
This year will be the measuring stick in my opinion. De-commits are becoming an issue but not a run for the doors, yet. If the OSU chokes continue, the Mich blow-outs, the MSU debacles, and three, I repeat THREE pathetic bowl game losses we are in serious trouble.
Well, that makes two now, one more steal and we have a problem.
If this becomes a trend then that spells trouble. One recruit does not make a big deal, especially with the talent we have, if they hold onto the ball. This still is not good when OSU takes one of our own but we'll just have to wait and see. Get off the DUI stuff, in this new world if you breathe in fumes you're in trouble, many of us old timers would only be allowed our walkers to drive if things were this way back then. He paid his dues let it rest.
Is this the kid Chambers grabbed?
Guys, the seats are not the only thing they charge, parking, seat cushions, DONATIONS for those seats. Wrestling has went up significantly but is still a bargain for the most part.
The prices keep rising, rising, rising and the on field competition gets lower and lower, that's PSU. Wrestling is getting the same way but what a product they put on the mat.
It would be great to see him get to Dake but it will end there. Dake was too much for Taylor, Hall will not be able over come this obstacle regardless of his ability.
I said all along Moorehead was involved in this thing. He got a promise to start there where he didn't here. He also must of been unsure of his ability or health to compete and win the job. Personally, good bye and good luck. We have a capable QB here for several years to come.
