Mark Allen just finished his redshirt junior year so I suspect he is eligible to grad transfer if he so chooses. Johnathan Thomas is an unknown on that front.
I think your hatred of Trace McSorley is warping your view of the offensive line.
They're not poorly conditioned, they just can never take a break because Penn State has no bench.
I think you mistake my intention here. I'm not saying the poor schedule should be excused. I'm saying they didn't make a poor schedule on purpose.
I think you are selling Reaves and Watkins way short. Reaves is a legitimate D1 talent on his defense alone. Watkins is one of the best bigs in the conference, despite his lackluster performance last night.
They did not intend to have this soft of a schedule, I can guarantee you that. The combination of losing a key week of games because of the Big Ten December games and many teams simply not being interested in playing against Penn State worked against them. They try to play in Philadelphia every year. That they have no game there this year should tell you all you need to know about how unwilling teams are to play ball with this program.
And I want to re-watch some of the tape, but I do not recall there being a tremendous number of wide open looks from three for NC State. They were throwing everything in last night. If you're going to have a problem with the coaching staff for last night, I would look at holding off on the press for far too long.
Injury to a star running back and a shaky quarterback depth chart was my understanding.
He was offered a scholarship in late October.
The 21st Amendment is the only one that matters to me.
*Mike Gesicki whiffs on 4 consecutive run blocks*
"This is Trace McSorley's fault."
I'm here for another Tony Carr double digit free throw game.
They have stated a goal of playing in Philadelphia every year. That they are not playing there should tell you that the schools in Philadelphia do not want to play Penn State.
If your sole criteria for a coach is "must be as good or better than Nick Saban and Urban Meyer," your life as a college football fan is going to be a hellscape forever.
My assumption is that Larry King will get a prediction in next week once his intern checks the Twitter voicemail.
I wouldn't normally bring it up ... but since the gauntlet has been thrown down, the refereeing in that game clearly favored Iowa. There was a 5-minute stretch early in the second half (I believe starting with the Haley interception) where they blew call after call in Iowa's favor.
