After spending three or so years covering recruiting for Black Shoe Diaries and contributing to SB Nation's college football hub, I couldn't be more excited to be taking on the senior editor and recruiting director positions for Roar Lions Roar. I look forward to helping to usher in a new era of Penn State sports coverage for you all.

This is a good point that I hadn't considered.

People expected Penn State to be a "chuck it deep, score 50 points a game" team, so since they're not doing that, people think something's wrong. When in reality, the offense has taken only a small step back in explosiveness and a giant leap forward in efficiency, making them a better offense overall.

Interesting point, thanks for contributing.

I could be wrong, but the meercatting usually doesn't lead to many changes. It's more for telling the guys what routes they're running, etc.

Sometimes it leads to shifts, but not always. None of us are really in a place to assume that they're looking at the cards and doing nothing. It's always seemed to be more of "Trace will tell you where to line up, we'll look at the defense and tell you what to run", IMO.
