Hot takes in Twitter replies and comments sections fuel me.
edit: also the people sitting around me at games who feel the need to angrily shout their takes at a guy 60+ rows down and 50+ yards away.
I love Pat Narduzzi. He has been the absolute perfect villain for Penn State over the past four years, and for that reason, I am going to truly miss him.
Never before has a blog so clearly summed up my thoughts into a sentence before. "Maybe I'm just a stupid defensive coach" will live with me for the rest of my life. Good luck on your future endeavors, Pat.
The guy sitting behind me got REALLY mad whenever Brisker was on the field instead of Wade.
Going forward it's looking to me like they want to solidify Brown as the first string, Slade as the second, Cain as a short distance guy, then Ford as a reserve. Not terribly surprising, but it's nice to see that all start falling into place.
Primetime both Friday and Saturday feels kind of boring to me. I vote for volleyball instead. Go state! Beat Stanford and Oregon!
This was supposed to be the game where Daniel George came in and scored 8 tuddies. Since that isn't going to happen now, I'll second Clifford, who is going to stay in the game until the last drive and still be throwing deep bombs into the 4th quarter because #HangAHundredOnPitt
That URL though...
I don't know how valuable 3 years of study is worth considering we've had almost complete turnover in roster and offensive staff. But I would recommend that you tell him to play the first half in the rain with no fans, and then just cry for the second half because they have never won a second half against us.
I definitely call out Alabama for 1941. Also Pitt for every single one of their 9 nonsense championships.
Screw Nebraska and screw Nixon. We should claim 94, 69 (nice), and every undefeated season.
The Athletic talked about all those things in their PSU podcast, I believe.
Something really interesting about this schedule is that men's basketball is going to be at home against Northwestern on 2/15, same day as the Ohio State dual in the BJ Center. Either some kind of awesome doubleheader is in the works, or the basketball game is going to be in Rec Hall, maybe?
Things are not going well
I wish I had the willpower to find out if there is a correlation between what recruits refer to us as in their offer tweets and whether they end up signing. My gut says that players who refer to us as "Penn State" are more likely to sign, but I'll likely never know for sure.
Hold off on that prognosis, I'm going to the Phillies game tonight.
racing out to a 38-3 halftime lead and coasting to the same 45-13 final score would have felt better for everyone.
Everyone else in the country was watching LSU Texas. For all they know, that's exactly what happened. I won't tell them if you don't.
Everyone focusing on 7-10 first half and ignoring the fact that we went 38-3 in the second. Not to mention the fact that we covered the spread. We definitely have things to work on, but luckily we have 2 bye weeks in a row to get them done before the trip to College Park. #HangAHundredOnAkron
Free money from Vegas, really.
Agreed. SP+ has Maryland at 38. They're actually 0.1 point dogs at Temple this week by that metric.
This is the best articles you guys have published since the Land Grant Trophy DIY
It is Reid! It is touchdown!
Right up there with the best Chris Fowler and Gus Johnson calls.
Was that intended for Dotson or Hamler?
