So your hypothesis is that it took Joe Moorhead over nine months to realize that Trace McSorley and Christian Hackenberg are two different types of players. You must really have a low opinion of Moorhead's intelligence.
Of course, I'm being sarcastic. I understand your point (even though you're wrong), because you only ever have two points: James Franklin sucks and needs to be saved by actual good coaches, and Trace McSorley sucks and needed to be saved by those good coaches that Franklin sometimes accidentally hires. You manage to crowbar your thoughts on Franklin and McSorley into just about everything you ever whine about on here.
Please tell us more about the offense Joe Moorhead designed for Christian Hackenberg.
This is so fascinating and telling. You'd rather have worse talent and slightly overachieve on occasion so that you can sneer at more successful programs for having to rely on money and good recruiting. You dislike Franklin and his "recruiting philosophy" because you can't pretend you hold the moral high ground over the blue blood programs. And let's be clear, it's pretending. You have a very rosy colored outlook on Joe Paterno's tenure and how he led his program, let's just say that.
If you don't like the facilities arms race and spending big money on coaches, that's fine. There's a perfectly legitimate and even moral case to be made that it's not a good thing. But if so, you're following the wrong sport.
If they're going to buck that trend, tight end seems like the position to do it. This is a highly desirable place for tight end prospects (similar to running back). Think of it from Barnwell's perspective: he's making sure he's THE tight end in this class and not some other highly rated prospect.
It sounds like you agree with my response, then!
This is the perfect comment to make if your intention was to illustrate that you don't know what you are talking about.
It's an interesting decision. I actually agreed with Chambers, for the main reason that Penn State had been miserable shooting from deep all night, and a foul likely gets at least one point on the board for Illinois. But I can totally see both sides of the argument.
Mildly disagree, as Adisa Isaac was almost surpassing him by season's end as a true freshman. I think, either way, he knew he'd be third or fourth on the depth chart at best.
He has the ability to start at a decent school, and a grad transfer makes a ton of sense for a guy like him. On that, we both agree.
There has been no indication that Shorter is conflicted the way Wade was last season. Everything seems to indicate he wants out. I would be stunned if he returns to Penn State.
The unfriendly whistle is becoming to be a real problem. They don't get the home court advantage other teams get, even with their success and their star senior players. Anyone who has watched the games would agree it is not conspiratorial to say so.
