    True, so you hire their ex-coaches to work for you in the hope that you can stay ahead of them. Right Urbey?

    Only Penn State and Wisky have had winning records in conference since 2005. Bowl eligible record wise all those years.

    I would not say we were down. A little tripped up but not down.

    Yes, one big dude. The Buckeyes went after Mike real hard, and we know they generally have the "pick of the litter" when it comes to TE's.

    PSU was 2-6 in the B1G in 2014. Our only conference wins were against Rutgers and IU.

    No, not just IN conference. The only two conference teams that have had winning records since 2005. All games played in a season, including OOC.

    JF NOTES

    On the O-line "We plan on Andrew Nelson being a major part of our offense ... same goes for Brendan Mahon." Nelson will be ready for camp.

    Donovan Johnson, Tariq Castro-Fields and Journey Brown all ran under 4.4.

    JF (on Nick Bowers): "He should be full go for Day 1 of camp."

    Awesome that Bowers is back! Need that blocking TE, as it seems Holland is more in the Gesicki mould unless I'm mistaken.

    BFW put on 12 pounds of good weight since enrolling in January. Looking like a linebacker.

    #25 LB Brelin Faison-Walden

    Signing day listing: 6-foot-1, 200 pounds

    July listing: 6-foot-1, 212 pounds

    Buzz: Good to see one of Penn State's four January enrollees got right to work in the weight room over the winter. He's probably set to redshirt, but his early arrival could put him in play if needed.

    Franklin on Penn State's 2017 freshman class: "It's a fast class. I don't know if I've ever had four guys that clocked on six watches and they all clocked under 4.4."
    Those four freshmen are Donovan Johnson, Journey Brown, Tariq Castro-Fields and preferred walk-on Drew Hartlaub.

    I get what you're saying, but this is the year. I don't want any freshman returning punts or kicks. I admit if one of them wins a spot, Brown, Hamler, Hippenhammer, or Wade have the potential to change my mind.

    YESSSSSSSS! James Franklin just flat out "gets it." I have mentioned quite often my angst about 3rd-and-<2. Franklin states in that clip that we must be and are going to be improved in that area. :D Perhaps someone can insert the dancing emoji for me.
