We will see if he can coach as good as he did at Vandy, no reason not to believe.
Tonight was a HUGE night in the resurrection of a program described by many as left for DEAD. WE heard all of the analogies.
Now Franklin has taken over and thankfully to probably the #1 draft pick one day in the NFL at qb, this team is setting itself up very nicely for the future.
Sure there may be struggles with depth the next couple of years still, but the program will be back to national prominence within 5 years at the most.
While the verbal announcements via radio and Bleacher report of PA #1 recruit OT Sterling Jenkins (from Pitt) and QB Brandon Wimbush tonight were just another small step in the rebuild (as if 15-9 last two years is that bad considering sanctions and fact two missed xps cost them two of those losses and a horrible review of a td another), outside of Hackenberg and Breneman committing, probably the best recruiting night in PSU history.
The recruits are buying what Franklin is selling and they are currently ranked #2 behind only Bama for 2015, this after he saved face and kept all recruits and even upgraded the class in 2014 after O'Brien suddenly departed.
I fully expect at least another one year of sanctions (some have already been removed) to be removed after George Mitchell gives yet another positive review of PSU football culture ( gee what a shock) and the NCAA tries to save face again in lieu of the Paterno lawsuits against them where they have tried to settle already with $ and been told, NO! More than likely, this fall all sanctions will be removed as you start to get the idea these recruits know there is a great chance of that.
However you want to break it down, there is something special about to take place at PSU. As one player put it best at the most recent spring game, "they got FAT while we starved, its going to be our time to eat!"
Never underestimate a hungry Lion, especially if its Nittany blue.
I think its over.
Mike Florio reported Washburn and Morninwheg got into it tonight. MeSean Jackson was benched.
And the Philly fans chanting Fire Andy in early 3rd quarter.
Think his career will be summed up in Philly by this play.
4th and 1 from 2 with Vince Young at qb and no d lineman over center, an easy sneak. He chooses to roll out VY short side and throws one out of the end zone. An awful play call in that situation. And it shows he just never could find that power back to help his teams get the short yardage.
Not to mention ownership gives him the dream team. And he takes an o line coach who is clueless to run this defense with most talent in league at dline and corner.
I think he's done.
reports that they are working out pac man...
this is out of control, you laughed at the fact you had so many players with problems years ago and you kept bringing them in. You gave Chris Henry numerous chances and tragedy struck this team as many predicted. Nothing good comes from these type of people, why do the Bengals feel they can change these guys or why do they like to sign them? They aren't even that good besides.
This Pac Man things tops it all for me. Get a grip Bengals, c'mon.
