    I really appreciate the measured response to the reporters who continually take a crap on their customer base... No wonder this has persisted for years

    have to agree, for the most part, in Nov 2015. On that date, PSU was 7-5 and just got pasted by Sparty 55-16. Also, that point was probably the abyss with regard to sanctions. Thank God for #26 as a true freshmen that year because we would have had a loosing record in all probability. If not blame it on talent, blame it on coaching? that would have gone over just as badly. Donovan was fired right after that game and Moorhead was a nobody coaching at a tiny school

    Having said that, Jones could have made similar statements in a much more positive light. His body of work is always really, really negative. So he doesn't have any credibility, IMHO.

    We have beat on us writers.

    Every time we mention Jones, Pickel, Pennlive we keep them somewhat relevant. How about we just ignore them and make like they don't exist?

    Ouch on bleacher report they are saying ND basically pulled TJ Sheffield WR offer of a scholarship and are going in a different direction after the coach had called him when he committed and talked to his parents about how excited he was to coach him ....

    It’s awful. The same crew of about 7-8 guys. If I were one of them, I don’t think I’d have the audacity to post much here or opine on Penn State football

    I tend to agree, especially when it comes to recruiting. If you think about it, guys like Jones and Pickel might not even make enough money to be able to afford to subscribe to the premium recruiting services. But assuming they can, they only have access to the same information as every other subscriber. If you're looking for recruiting insights, look elsewhere.

    We had a Dave Jones thread going for awhile (my next 10 posts will be recruiting). Other greatest hits are his video after the Mich 2016 game where he says PSU will go 3-9. And him on keystone kickoff in Jan 2016 where he goes on and on about how Franklin doesn’t fit at PSU and we should have went with Munchak.

    Jones keeps a low profile when things are going well.

    Franklin epitomizes Joe’s focus on the classroom and public service.

    You are equating an emotional, in the moment response with a planned, calculated attack on the program by someone with a far-reaching platform. Obviously, I'm passionate about the topic and this will be my last post but I'd like fans to consider the while Franklin works his ass off to build the perception and brand of the product, there are know nothing lazy malcontents standing on the sidelines pointing fingers and tearing down what the staff is trying to build... Please consider stop reading their content.

    There is a long list of current Penn State players who had Alabama offers. The writers who pen columns like that are too lazy to even do the most basic research.

    After the 7-6 years, there were lazy writers (incl “Mom Jeans” Audry Snyder) who were trying to say that Narduzzi was running a better program then Franklin. I started my recruiting scorecard between the two schools that showed that Franklin was cleaning his clock. The tide would turn.

    The main difference being its his job.
    I would expect him to fail miserably if he tried to do my job, so I get a pass when I fail to do his.
    I'm not perfect at my job, but if I was wrong as often as he is, I wouldn't have mine very long.
    He doesn't get a pass because a bunch of amateurs thought the same way. Just proves he's an amateur.

    Pickel needs to focus more on proof reading. Never have I seen more gramatical errors, spelling mistakes, and typos published.

    In his choice of vehicles. It's a mistake to buy one Hyundai, but downright stupid to own 2.

    I do not understand all the angst towards Pickel. He seems like he tries to give a realistic point of view. I do not get a sense that he has inside information so perhaps he lacks any special knowledge about situations.

    I think Jones believes he is always the smartest person in the room. His arrogance can be annoying. But I have also watched his post game videos where he said how wrong he was with certain predictions and how he was enjoying Penn State football.

    It's Sean Fitz then everyone else on PSU recruiting. I don't pay for Rivals or 247 but still have a clearer picture and am better at reading tea leaves, as are a number of others who post info in this thread on a regular basis, than Pickel ever is.

    Well played if so sir.

    Ryan Snyder has just as much info as Fitz. They even talk to each other, I just don't think Ryan gives out as much free info as Fitz so if you don't pay for it you wouldn't know that.
