It's my pleasure to serve as a senior editor for Roar Lions Roar. I am greatly enjoying building up a brand new entity from scratch (with a ton of help from our friends at Eleven Warriors, of course) after having spent time writing for multiple team sites on SB Nation including Black Shoe Diaries, Tomahawk Nation, Land Grant Holy Land, Alligator Army, as well as the main college football hub. I also spent time on the professional side, writing about the Seattle Seahawks for Field Gulls on the SB Nation network.

Please don't hesitate to ever reach out to myself or anyone else on the masthead about improvements you think can be made to the site or any other comments you may have. Thanks for reading! Go State!

It's impossible to know whether the KC-Franklin marriage would have worked long-term so it's hard to really say. But the commonality between the best teams in college football is running offenses that look like what Yurcich wants to run. Trying to emulate teams doesn't work in the NFL (like everyone who has tried to become the Patriots) but I disagree that that's the case in college ball.

Hell, Penn State was at its best when it had Joe Moorhead just a few years ago and beat Ohio State once and lost by a point the next year. I don't agree that bringing in Yurcich widens this gap, at all.

I think this thing is going to start to shift pretty heavily to Autio before too long. Souliere just looks overmatched right now.

I think what Michael meant is that though there are still multiple prospects on the board, we won't necessarily hear a ton about them thanks to the lack of visits and whatnot. Also, some of the players that they end up with on the second signing day will be guys that actually ended up signing during this early signing period and just didn't make it public yet.

As far as the transfer portal goes, yes, they will be busy. But we keep that realm separate from high school/JuCo recruitment.
