The only teams to make the playoffs with something resembling a true pro-style offense are Michigan State and Washington, who got in more thanks to down years from the rest of the country, not their own merit, and both got stomped on once they got there.
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.
Hiring Yurcich doesn't make them further away talent-wise. Really not sure what you're attempting to say here.
I think this thing is going to start to shift pretty heavily to Autio before too long. Souliere just looks overmatched right now.
Shout out the dude in the first clip running the dummy screen who stays still for a solid 3 seconds lol
IMO, all Altoonas should be Penn State feeder cities
Last I read, I believe 10 rounds is probably likely. You're right though, if he gets past the early 2nd round, he could be someone who drops to the later rounds due to signability factors.
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.
