I would be shocked if it had any impact.
No worries. The timelines aren’t always 100% accuarate.
He was not. The official visits, uh, officially start tonight.
One, the Big Ten instituted four-year guaranteed scholarships for student athletes in 2014, so they aren't just pulling those from players. More accurately, guys want to play. Andre Robinson fell to, at best, third string this season, and was likely looking at the same next year. Barbir likely saw the writing on the wall that they were bringing in another kicker in this year's class.
There is a natural attrition that has nothing to do with "we don't want you here anymore" that happens in these situations, and a big part of it is guys want to go somewhere and have a shot to see the field. When you're 3rd or 4th on the depth chart at your position, it only makes sense to look around.
Ha. PSU is in a very good spot, but no silent verbals yet!
Thanks for catching that!
PSU's line has improved significantly in Limegrover's two seasons. Yes, it took a step back in the latter half of this season, but it's still significantly improved from what he inherited. I firmly believe that the two biggest things, in order, you need to succeed up front are physical maturity, and experience. PSU is getting the latter, and the former just takes time.
PSU's line this year started a RS senior that, in my opinion, clearly was limited by a significant injury last year (Mahon), two redshirt sophomores, a true sophomore, and a redshirt freshman.
A fourth OL coach since 2011 is not the answer, in my opinion.
Thanks for that! I had the info pulled up, but flipped the scores.
Regardless of who is brought in, the scheme will not change significantly, if at all.
They averaged almost 500 yards last year. They dealt with a number of injuries this year, among other things.
Yes, really a shame that there's no possible way to hire another great offensive mind.
Not official, but I’d call it very likely.
Fortunately schools are allowed to assist with insurance policies.
Trace McSorley is 19th nationally in completion %, 22nd in yards per attempt, 19th in passing TDs, and 17th in rating. No. 17 in QBR if ESPN's metric is your thing. Do you prefer S&P+? PSU's passing offense is No. 8.
Clearly the passing game is a massive issue.
I'll just leave it at there are a number of factors that contributed to OSU moving on from Parsons.
We got a brief glimpse of it on the first two plays of the game, 2 carries for 18 yards.
I am 100% serious here, but I would be interested in hearing how the passing game is holding the offense back, and why the offensive line is not as big an issue as people say.
