I'm interested to see the linebacking rate with a highly confident Cam Brown and 2nd year Parsons. If Parsons can turn his impressive 82 tackles but menial 5 TFL into 100 and 20, hooooboy. Toss in Brooks over Johnson (if that's the best option), and I'll be very happy.
Behind Michigan State .... not the coaching
*pretends to be shocked*
Hard to go against those mentioned. I'd say 1. 2016 ohio state and 2. 2013 Michigan
A nice darkhorse is 2016 Minnesota. There was that like eight minute stretch in the 3rd where: Charles broke for 80 on a 3rd and 11 (their first conversion of the game (yikes)), Julius got railroaded on kick coverage prompting an ejection, a quick 3 and out with Bowen chasing down the back, and a kick catch interference gave PSU the ball at like the 30. Not to mention an interception in the endzone to really keep it close, Jordan Smith maybe.
narduzzi announcing this in a video where he literally could not bring himself to say Penn State is very fun to watch. What a numbskull.
Give me all the PJ Mustipher you have
I agree! They're talented at QB usually, at least serviceable, better than average ball carriers, pretty good receivers, and almost always has a good corner. It's just unfair that they play against two perennial powerhouses and michigan
Hi yes I'd like to see a 400lb tackle attempt to block YGM or Oweh very much
Four fumbles recovered by the spartans and then two dropped interceptions on the final drive? Lewerke throwing the ball backwards 15 yards for an incomplete pass? Those are a few things that stink out load for that game, just to play some devil's advocate. I also wouldn't call what Sanders was able to do a "fluke," he was a pretty damn good running back, showing that same escapability in many games.
rutger isn't gonna go many places with a last ranked QB...
Ouchtown. Population: piscataway.
I'd pay good money to see the daily livings of Sean Spencer and Gerad Parker.
There are 5-7 teams that make bowl games. and every bowl in existence knows how PSU fans travel so well. They'll make a bowl.
alright take your upvote
Please accept my deepest apologies for joke stealing
Start Isaac Rumery you cowards
Man, Seider was an amazing hire. Without him there's no way PSU would have Holmes, Cain, or Dunmore.
I literally knew you would comment this. I knew it. Before I even scrolled down here.
I think corner is really underrated on this team. DE and LB draw a lot of the hype and rightly so, but Reid is stellar, like super good, and TCF is one step away from teams just not throwing over there. Then you toss in Donovan Johnson and Trent Gordon. Of course a lot of unproven talent like many positions, but I'm excited for them.
Bart Scott? ohhh, Nick Scott.
I love to gripe about preseason polls because they don't mean anything so the griping is worthless.
What on offense does ohio state bring back that makes them 6th? Is Florida really that good? What makes everyone so high on michigan every year? Is UCF better than Penn State? Stanford??
Oddly enough, I'd say JJ excels versus the run more than the pass because he does a good job at reading holes and shooting up to the ball carrier. But I agree that Brooks is just flat out more talented, I'm excited for his time
I'd love a good 42-39 in favor of the good guys. But since there's no way on god's green earth that Pry is giving up 39 to pitt
I'll just predict 81-0 as all the points would just naturally appear on our end of the scoreboard
Nebraska? after going 4-8? I get it: they kept it close with ohio state and iowa, Frost is a golden boy, Martinez is good (?). But just what?
I hope to god I don't get foot in mouth syndrome this year too lol
I'll forever be in the camp of, "From whom did you get this information?" Because every single solitary beat reporter I have ever read has been of the mindset that there was an open competition (for every spot) every year. Tommy lost. Sorry.
