You're certainly not taking away by acknowledging that fact.
It's OK to honor both!
I have been following college basketball for nearly forty years.
Definitely an improvement. The team playing on fire of late helps, too. Sometimes it's one of those "chicken-egg" scenarios. Sustained, good, exciting basketball will draw. Sporadic bouts of it? Nah.
A resounding YES to this. They just flat-out demo'ed Ohio State.
This team is playing with some SAUCE right now. They have to ride it as damn long as possible.
It's a beautiful sight. Nuke 'em, Bae.
Really excited by this move. Franklin has tremendous contacts and he's made State College a desirable place for an assistant. "Come here and, uh, you can win a Big Ten championship and maybe Nick Saban will hire you eventually or you get your own head coaching gig." Pretty great selling points.
Not an Alabama fan, either! But gosh dang, Saban and company saw something in Gattis. Great move up for Gattis. Wishing him the best of luck. And, as has been said, this is a challenge for Penn State but also a significant compliment. The SEC is knocking on Jimmy's staff's doors, seeking answers to their problems.
If nothing else, it'll give him a chance to carve his own path. Imagine if he does well and they somehow start winning in year 2 or 3? Legend!
I'm really considering it!
