rriva::spread is at 16 for the game this week i think
78Lion::they will find a way to put pressure on Getsy
futurelion::I just hope to see Odrick get a nice amount of PT against Akron
futurelion::i want to see what the kid brings tothe table
Alan84::the only thing preventing us from covering will be the rain
rriva::when y'all see odrick this year on defense, you'll see why he shouldn't be switched to OT
msj56::i wanna see james mcdonald and chris bell get some jump balls
Alan84::if there is a real mudbath I think Akron is shut out
LiverpoolLion::I want to see Odrick give Getsy fits and ND something to think about
Alan84::am19 - Akron is better than we want to admit, but I think the D is just waiting to kill some people
78Lion::I want to see Shaw push the OT into Getsy give ND something to think about
futurelion::agreed alan. Poz and Connor are going to lay some people out
am19psu::i'm just thinking we see a lot of cover two with few blitzes
quez56::Think about it.....Puz has been caged all summer
LiverpoolLion::psu O>akron D, psu D>>>akron O
quez56::I wouldn't want to be the first guy he sets his sights on....
Alan84::agreed on the cover 2 and few blitzes. I think the front four want to make part of that statement as well
PSU42Fan::my 8 month old daughter and i are ready to go!!!
PBRme::It's going to be a typical post millenium PSU year. Awesome defense, bad o-line. I just can't ever remember having a good o-line with three redshirt sophomores starting.
Alan84::bad o-line? This line is going to be awesome by OSU
mrpsu2::For some reason I think the OLine will be better than we expect.
futurelion::it won't be great, but it will be adequate
futurelion::it will be great in 07-08
Maxicat::2 seniors and 1 RS junior on OL
78Lion::same as last year's line but will be better by year end
dwheels02::hey i got a / for all of you guys about notre dame tickets
PBRme::I think it will be worse than a lot of fans expect.
PlaybookMark::Who's ready for some football?
dwheels02::some guy says he will sell me them for 175-200 ea
futurelion::as long as Kenney and Anderson here, we will never just 'reload' on the line
dwheels02::but he has no photo
mendy4psu::i haven't seen a pair go for less than a 1000
dwheels02::and wants to go through ebay square trade is that safe
PBRme::I worry about the youth and whether or not these guys can physically compete with Big Ten DTs from schools like Wisconsin, Michigan, etc.
mendy4psu::be very wary of any ebay auctions for ND tickets
futurelion::you're worried about Ohrny and Ship being able to handle things physically ?
futurelion::i'm not worried about them physically at all. these are the best athletes we've had on the line in a very long time
LiverpoolLion::physically compete, yes. Technique, schemes, who knows
PlaybookMark::This will become one of the more physical OLs PSU has had in a long while
dwheels02::thank god im going to the akron game and not watching it on tv did you hear pam ward will be one of the announcers
PlaybookMark::the thing that is good for PSU is they will have some stability at center rather than having senior after senior after senior take over the role
78Lion::I don't mind the internet delay for audio
mendy4psu::looks like the wind might be the biggest issue on Saturday
PBRme::yes futurelion. We always hear great things out of practice at this stage in their career. I remember hearing how Charles Rush was looking so good as a sophomore that they considered moving him to tackle.
PlaybookMark::mendy I expect a lot of running this weekend, so wether should play into PSU's advantage
PBRme::I'm just not sold yet that PSU can get o-lineman ready within 3 years.
Natty::Mark- what odds you giving of PSU getting B.Green? I say 2%
PlaybookMark::wind/rain neutralize or at least challenge Getsy
PSU42Fan::morelli needs to throw
futurelion::Rush isn't half the athlete Ship or Ohrny are. again, not worried about them physically. all you have to do is look at them
rriva::natty, i think it's much higher than that
PlaybookMark::Natty, if they get Green to U-M game that jumps to 30% I think
trock56::Rriva what is the deal with wiz
Natty::mark-thats a big if
rriva::i can't put a percentage on it (i'm no good in math) but i think that there's legit shot
PlaybookMark::Wiz apparently had a very good visit to UNC...
mendy4psu::a reliable USC poster on rivals said he thinks Green is gone
rriva::trock, i'd be shocked if he didn't commit to psu when it's all said and done
mrfolks::"So you're saying there's a chance"
futurelion::i don't know why anyone thinks Green is such a longshot
PlaybookMark::Natty, he's said he's coming, so it's as good of a situation PSU can expect right now
rriva::i've said my piece many a time on when kids commit and then take official visits...
PSU42Fan::he is not going to usc
futurelion::he's obviously not going to SC, and does anyone think Arky will have even a decent year ?
trock56::Why is wiz waiting. Chance he is a silent verbal
Natty::Mark-well I obviously hope he does, but just seems like a longshot to me
PlaybookMark::The team to beat with Green is Arkansas, he has close ties to it and it's home
rriva::trock, wiz is a unique kid, he really isn't caught up in the hype, he's way laid back and is really just taking his time and enjoying the process
PSU42Fan::he doesn't sound in love with ark
msj56::apparently arkansas took away his tickets to USC game
PlaybookMark::Natty, getting Wallace to OSU was a long shot too - he wasn't even thinking PSU
msj56::which made him mad
futurelion::i agree 42. his brother may be there, but that's the only thing giving Arky any shot imo
trock56::Bob how far did our recruits drop in latest list?
CharlestonLion::who will be our next verbal?
rriva::people just need to remember that a decent number of current PSU freshmen were "longshots" (i.e. wallace) before the osu game
PlaybookMark::Riva - exactly
PlaybookMark::Penn State sells itself
PSU42Fan::any idea exactly how many schollies available?
rriva::bob, i like the picture of you shirtless on your myspace page
BobLichtenfels::glad to see some things never chenge and Trock's degree from Phoenix University is serving him well
trock56::Bob why is everyone dropping bostick
msj56::has the marvin austin ship sailed?
Rathskeller::looks like a banner crowd here-
BobLichtenfels::msj I wouldn't say final, Im sure LJ is still working Marvin
CharlestonLion::who has been standing out on the OL?
PlaybookMark::I wouldn;t count Austin out yet, but he seems like the wants to head to Miami
msj56::it just seems like he has not mentioned PSU in forever
PlaybookMark::Who wins - FSU/Miami?
HowardStern::Bob...how did McCoy look physically? is he recovered?
PlaybookMark::Neither did Derrick Williams
BobLichtenfels::I see him and Ant Davis playing for the "U" unless Coker gets canned, which may not matter if they bring back Butch Davis
futurelion::Davis will be taking over for Nutt
PlaybookMark::I am not saying Austin is coming, but two days before he committed Williams said he was considering Oklahoma, Florida, FSU and Texas
PSUisBACK::D-Will's dad wrote PSU off after the NW game
BobLichtenfels::LeSean looked great, he was admittedly a little out of shape but the instincts are still there, the cuts are still sharp and that extra gear has not left
PSUisBACK::but realized that Joe was the only who didn't lie to him
CharlestonLion::thank god we got DWill
trock56::Bob not joking why is bostik dropping on all the list and we havent even played yet
Psu96::DT options are there even without Austin, although you always want the best of course
HowardStern::good ro hear
msj56::well we definately need him to visit for the michigan game
rriva::i think psu has a great shot at tydreke powell
78Lion::Langley didn't look too ripped in the video
BobLichtenfels::Dont know what lists I dont read them
Psu96::Powell would be one heck of a consolation prize
PSU42Fan::do you think mccoy woul chance another visit?
Psu96::42, the question is would Penn State allow him to visit again?
Rathskeller::I remember that Mark- people were ready to jump off bridges. heh
mrfolks::better ? is would they invite him to visit
JsT10::I think Penn State has a great shot at Wesley Saunders too
PlaybookMark::PSU's recruiting Come (to PSU) and they will build it (a future)
PSU42Fan::if they want him...
BobLichtenfels::Like I said before there's some swollowing of the pride that needs to happen first
mrfolks::i don't think they do
CharlestonLion::who do you all think will be thE MVP of the offense on Saturday?
78Lion::hopefully the right side of the line
PlaybookMark::Charleston I would go with Hunt
trock56::dwill return for a td
Psu96::Hunt will get 20-25 carries if the game is close into the second half
futurelion::oh, you meant for PSU, sorry
rriva::future, stop it :-P
BobLichtenfels::My guess TRock is most people put too much stock into the Elite 11 for QB's
CharlestonLion::I can't wait to see Bell
HowardStern::Bob...do you know anything about Jr DT Brandon Ware from Harrisburg?
PSU42Fan::2 things i am looking for
Psu96::I'd like to see Bell make a big play this week so that he gets that monkey off his back going into South Bend where he's bound to be nervous
PSU42Fan::1. the ol
PlaybookMark::I doubt Bell gets a lot of reps vs. Akron - the passing game will run basic routes (curls, posts, etc.)
BobLichtenfels::I heard bad reports about Dev last year from that and I knew it was ridiculous, anyone that has seen him throw knows how good he is
PSU42Fan::2. when freshmen play and who
BobLichtenfels::Not yet Stern, but I do have Harrisburg on my scouting schedule this year
PlaybookMark::Who wins Cal vs. Tennessee?
mrfolks::he's committed, so Bostick falls on some lists, name of the game
Psu96::Cal should win, but it's at TN so the Vols will figure out a way
LexLion::TN only because Cal's QB situation is a mess for the first game
PSUisBACK::Fulmer's job is on the line.........
am19psu::can someone explain to me why cal is a darkhorse candidate for the mnc this year?
Nittanylfan::I pick CAL
futurelion::Cal will win even wih Ayoob
LexLion::otherwise Cal would/should win
Psu96::Marshawn Harvey and DeSean Jackson
YearoftheHeisman::Bob, wghat's your predicition on PSU's las 5 recruit?
futurelion::Cal's D will shut UT down
78Lion::am, they are the only other team in Pac 10
Psu96::Ayoob is Booya spelled backwards
StevisInHSV::Cal..hopefully I hate Tennessee
Nittanylfan::USC or Arkansas ??
mxbscout::Look for Penn State to get more than five more recruits
78Lion::usc without McFadden
rriva::are we on Mad Money now with the booyas :-)
PSUisBACK::USC.........they are still loaded........
mxbscout::as many as seven
LexLion::McFadden out = death to Arkansas
Psu96::I don;t think the Pac-10 plays defense futurelion
futurelion::Booty is dumb as a brick
BobLichtenfels::thats tough with them taking a few kids I would not have thought they'd take
futurelion::USC will struggle this year
YearoftheHeisman::OK, MORE THAN 5, who?
PlaybookMark::The situation with the special teams seems solid heading in - that could mean a big difference in close games
PSU42Fan::yes they will not be as good
HowardStern::if we have a PR who can make a play
futurelion::CJ Gable is no Bush or White, not even close
PlaybookMark::HS - Lowry's dancin shoes have been hung up...
BobLichtenfels::I think Muldrow will commit, I'd expect one more OL. I would assume they may get one of the two PA WR's either Moye or Williams/ Maybe they can wow Broderick Green
Psu96::Scirrotto is very fast, although I'm guessing he'll need a good seam in order to break one. Still I expect a North-South runner there which is better than dancing around and getting dropped for a loss
LexLion::That other OLman better be Wisniewski
futurelion::Muldrow needs to head south.
HowardStern::but i fear Scirrotto will be more of the same
BobLichtenfels::yup Wiz is one, unless he pulls a stunner
PlaybookMark::Scirrotto was an outstanding returnman in HS
PSU42Fan::any recruit like wallace that may look our way if things go good (besides austin and other known names)?
futurelion::i could see Anthony Davis giving us a look if we have a really good year
PSUisBACK::the AJ / Austin analogy is a good one..........
HowardStern::so was Lowry
Psu96::Wallace was off the radar until after OSU, so that's a tough one to predict until a big game atmosphere like Michigan happens
BobLichtenfels::If PSU gets out of the gate fast it could sway some kids, obviously the Michigan game will be huge
futurelion::O'Dowd will be really tough to get from USC
PSUisBACK::AJ didn't have us on his list either............till OSU............just like Michigan will win over Marvelous Marvin............
rriva::future, i think OSU has a better shot at O'Dowd than USC
BobLichtenfels::I cant see O'dowd out here in PA
PSU42Fan::that's why you guys get paid
futurelion::we'll see Riva. the USC guys I've talked to have said they fully expect to land him
msj56::we need to be at least 3-1 heading out of columbus or i think kids like austin or davis will not visit for michigan
78Lion::be more specific Bob
Psu96::Austin would have to come to the Michigan game first PiB
BobLichtenfels::Marvin's situation is different he listed PSU all year then supposedly dropped them, AJ didn't do that
futurelion::they aren't going after Summers Gavin because they think ODowd will end up at SC
trock56::so when does snow make his first appearance
rriva::future, it'll be interesting to see how O'Dowd's recruitment works out, i don't think he's sold on any one school yet
mxbscout::Game 4 on Snow
mrfolks::seems austin is concerned about playing early
PlaybookMark::future - USC guys expect to land Green too
CaveLion::I think that O'dowd is just using us to get a bigger signing bonus from OSU
Rathskeller::What's the latest on Walker Ashley?
mxbscout::Joe said at least two games
Nittanylfan::Game 4 ?/?
YearoftheHeisman::I have predicted Austin/Davis tandem is ours. You heard it here first. No inside info, just my willd prediction for the year.
futurelion::disagree mark. most every USC fan who has voiced an opinion thinks Green is as good as gone
BobLichtenfels::O'Dowd is a west coast kid, whats to be specific about. Watch where Everson griffin goes that could be a ppackage deal
Psu96::Ashley is enrolled at USC I believe
Nittanylfan::will Austin Scott play on Saturday ??
Rathskeller::Is he on the depth chart there?
PSU42Fan::3rd string at usc
HowardStern::Ashley is like 3rd team DT at USC
PlaybookMark::Asley is at DT
LexLion::If O'Dowd comes east, he will be in Columbus.
trock56::What is the latest on logan
mxbscout::Scott playing sounds like an iffy proposition
rriva::lex, i think you're right on that
mxbscout::in the opener
PSUisBACK::Scott won't play..............
rriva::at least as it stands now
Rathskeller::havn't heard much of him lately
Nittanylfan::will Scott play at all this season /??
Psu96::Hunt, Kinlaw and Hahn will get the carries from what it sounded like today
HowardStern::hopefully Scott plays this year
PSUisBACK::if Royster appears on Saturday.........and I think he will...........
trock56::What is the latest on LOGAN?
PSU42Fan::wait and see with royster?
Psu96::Joe definitely made it seem like he won't redshirt Scott. Might be a sign that he wants AS to get on with his lifes work as Chuck Noll used to say
PlaybookMark::I am still not convinced Scott is fully recovered from the spring knee injury
BobLichtenfels::Yoth if you get that prediction right, I'll hire you the next day...lol
PSUisBACK::he's back to practicing...........doing well............
Nittanylfan::I talked to someone that knows AS and he thought Scott would play this season
PSU42Fan::i can see that
HowardStern::sounds like a plan to me 96
rriva::from CNN: Hurricane watch lifted for all of Florida, but remains in effect for coastal areas of Georgia and the Carolinas, National Hurricane Center Says.
rriva::let's see if ernesto makes it up to PA
PSUfan88::what will be the percentage of one-back formations we will see the first couple of games
YearoftheHeisman::thanks, Bob I may take you up on hat
mrfolks::hope not, i'd like to see morelli get some reps in
Rathskeller::we got enough rain here the last 2-3 days, for sure
trock56::Rriva what is the latest on logan
Psu96::88, I would imagine PSU will use the one-back set quite often and have 3 WRs on the field.
Nittanylfan::the Hurricane changed it track again ???
PlaybookMark::Here's an interesting practice note - they have run a formation with Morelli and Williams as "split" QBs under center
am19psu::no, nittanyfan, it jsut never restrenghtened
Psu96::Anthony Morelli talked today about exploiting Akron's rover, a hybrid LB/safety that is often matched up with the slot receiver, which is DWill in PSU's case
HowardStern::thats a ND formation
rriva::trock, other than the clearinghouse issue, nothing really
Nittanylfan::darn.. I'm hoping it doesn't rain Friday
trock56::is clearinghouse close to being cleared up
PlaybookMark::96, that size mismatch against a Bell/McDonald type could be a big advantage
mxbscout::nobody knows, trock
am19psu::it really could be anywhere from friday afternoon to saturday night
Psu96::Direct snap to DWill. The Steelers ran this play several times last year. Ben would pretend like the snap went over his head and Randle-El would take the snap and run
PlaybookMark::HS - oh yeah - never see that in Akron
am19psu::it all depends on the strength of a high pressure system in canada
BobLichtenfels::The clearinghouse is still backed up, it's very strange this year how they are handling things
mrfolks::96- they first ran that with Kordell Stewart
HowardStern::i dont recall the NCAA ever being so messed up this late
Psu96::they're affecting lives of kids by putzing around like this
Rathskeller::That's out of Joe's Brown U. playbook..
HowardStern::they are seriously hurting kids now
NewYorkNittany::these kids should file a lawsuit against the ncaa
PSU42Fan::yespsu wins will be telling us all "i told you so"
mxbscout::Clarks situation was messed up into the spring of his freshman year
PSUisBACK::I'll find out the specifics on ALE's academic situation Saturday morning...........
psulions12::hey, just got here, whats new
BobLichtenfels::well Stern they are really cracking down on prep schools, cyber schools and home schooled kids so that has caused a back up
PSU42Fan::hopefully he'll knwo more than walton
bhunter::tv saturday? network?
Psu96::Pam Ward and Mike Gottfried on the call
HowardStern::yeah...but not all these kids are from prep schools etc
Nittanylfan::LIVE inside the Beav
BobLichtenfels::But that has caused the back-up so others are suffering the brunt of it
PSUisBACK::Pam Ward is the female Lombardi............her knowledge is overwhelming
PlaybookMark::With Getsy I suspect well see some press coverage from the secondary
PennStatePigskin::3 Days, 19 Hours, 10 Minutes
Maxicat::So, is there one coaches challenge
LexLion::I hope you are joking PIB
PlaybookMark::Who wins ND vs. GT?
Nittanylfan::Mark .. Blitz coming out tomorrow ???
psubart1::So are Maryland High Schools that bad or is it our admissions department
Psu96::yes one challenge but you have to take a timeout to throw the red flag
PlaybookMark::ntnyfan: we're working on it...
PSUisBACK::oh...........Pam Ward...........i thought you said Charlie Ward............
Psu96::you get the timeout back if the call is overturned
Maxicat::Joe has a red flag!!
78Lion::don't blame all of Maryland, Just PG county
psubart1::Ahhh, PG county, I guess if you make it out alive, you are on the right track
NewYorkNittany::we win the toss what do we do?
PlaybookMark::Tony Davis should be a solid corner
bhunter::amen on defend
Maxicat::If out of time outs you can't utilize?
LiverpoolLion::How many TE's see pt? any chance of seeing quarless?
Nittanylfan::good question - who gets "upset" this weekend ????
Psu96::I think the program has the luxury of redshirting Quarless
leftcoastpsu::UT beats Cal
psubart1::UVA or Pitt?
trock56::who gets first int of season
bhunter::u all pick any scores yet for our game
78Lion::pitt should win UVA sucks
PlaybookMark::Liver - I doubt we see Quarless Saturday unless it's a blowout - he needs to work on his blocking, which they are concerned with for Morelli out of the gate
Psu96::They don't need him to catch passes, so let Quarless bulk up and work on his blocking
psubart1::But Al Groh is a genius
PennStatePigskin::Broderick Green ? for the experts. Is there fire where there's smoke?
rriva::davis, from a build standpoint, reminds me a lot of rashean mathis, stocky legs and long arms
rriva::psp, so long as green takes his official visit, i give psu a legit shot
restoartheroar::FOS should have a season long pick em for college football games, with prizes of course
leftcoastpsu::how many does USC win by?
PSU42Fan::less than a TD
PlaybookMark::Pigskin - if they get Green to U-M is a new ball game
leftcoastpsu::42 that would be great for us
rriva::psp, i'm a stong believer that when a kid commits to a shcool and then takes officials, more often than not he ends up elsewhere
PennStatePigskin::Ok...The coaches are really trying.
leftcoastpsu::rriva - how much evidence do you have to support that?
trock56::Rriva I think logan would not agree with you. oh yes he would
mendy4psu::Green will not end up at USC
Nittanylfan::chances of Odrick playing are ???
rriva::nittany, pretty good chance
mendy4psu::how about Evans?
leftcoastpsu::maybe not immediately but soon
PSUisBACK::how does a kid like Odrick look so lean and ripped at 290?
mxbscout::don't think Evans plays this week
Nittanylfan::very good question - is the field covered ???
rriva::PiB, good question, he's just been blessed
PSUisBACK::he could be 320
PSUisBACK::and not have an ounze of fat
BobLichtenfels::PIB yopu should see Bruce Campbell he is 280 and has a six pack
PennStatePigskin::I thought he was 280
restoartheroar::what is the over under on yards traveled by Joe Paterno on the sidelines?
leftcoastpsu::other than Wallace and maybe Bell - frosh time will be limited
PSUisBACK::these kids are amazing
Nittanylfan::Wallace will be at WR ??
BWW71::any update on the Phil Taylor weight watch?
feetforlove::Man I cant wait, gonna be leaving Dayton Ohio, drving to SC for the game
PlaybookMark::Odrick seems ahead of Evans right now - LJ knows he needs solid guys for the end rotation
mxbscout::340 was last we heard, I believe
feetforlove::wallace at WR what?
Psu96::That's a luxury. PSU had to play a bunch of freshmen and redshirt freshmen last year. Now they can afford to redshirt highly talented kids and keep the pipeline full
PlaybookMark::NF - Wallace will likely se rps both ways this season
mxbscout::I would not be surprised if Wallace plays both ways this season
mxbscout::good point, Mark
feetforlove::Thats a given
psubart1::Can't redshirt too many, kids said they came because they could play right away
feetforlove::but will he see field this week?
Psu96::Wallace will fill the Justin King role at WR, taking reverses and getting the occasional pass thrown his way
mendy4psu::this years Justin King
mxbscout::Wallace will play this weekend
PSUisBACK::i think AJ plays right away
feetforlove::AJ can run
mendy4psu::what happened with Evans? I thought he was a lock to play right out of the shoot
PSUisBACK::he's getting quality reps
PlaybookMark::AJ is too good not to play
Nittanylfan::how fast is Wallace ??
PSUisBACK::so is Bell........
mrfolks::will sargeant, that's the question i want to know
feetforlove::Bell is on the field pronto
HowardStern::if Aulletta is banged up....who is the 3rd OT? Eliades or Landolt?
PlaybookMark::Sargeant could see some return reps
Psu96::Evans is very talented but has had issues with his endurance. The conditioning is a real shock to the system for many freshmen
BobLichtenfels::I dont see Evans as being big enough right now to play end in the Big Ten he needs a year to bulk up
PlaybookMark::HS - Landolt is ahead ot Eliades
PennStatePigskin::James McDonald has dissapeared?
Maxicat::Farris didn't even make the 3 deep
PSUisBACK::Evans is only 260.........isn't that a tad light?
PSU42Fan::harrison moves in at rg
HowardStern::Landolt has good feet
Rathskeller::What weight did Tamba play at?
PlaybookMark::McDonald will be in the rotation, he adds size on slants and flat routes
Nittanylfan::how fast is Wallace compared to Williams ??
MEpsuproud::so, in summary, we should look to see Odrick, Wallace and Bell on the field this weekend? Any other freshman?
mendy4psu::so Price starts this week and is back on the bench for ND?
78Lion::remember Tamba started at DT
Psu96::Landolt was a terrific high school wrestler. That should help him on the OL
mrfolks::wow, PSU running slants again... thank god
feetforlove::Anybody wondering if the depth at WR is a little too deep, and that we might need to switch some to RB or something?
PBRme::260 isn't light. Matt rice played at 255
HowardStern::wasnt Hali like 269 lbs?
PSUisBACK::i think the middle screen will be back in the O again
BobLichtenfels::Evans cant be 260
PSUisBACK::like in 1994
PBRme::One of the reasons Evans is probably out of shape is because he tried to gain too much weight too soon
mrfolks::ahhh, the middle screen...Engram was masterful at that play
BobLichtenfels::if he is its bad weight like the kind most of us would gain
PennStatePigskin::Bob, What PSU games will you see live?
restoartheroar::LETS GET FIRED UP,,,,,, WE ARE....
BobLichtenfels::Michigan I plan on coming to Happy Valley
PlaybookMark::Evans isn't out of shape - he just needs to get acclimated to all the conditioning - a lot of HS teams run a fraction of what PSU does
leftcoastpsu::But the bad weight is so good...
Psu96::It's very cool in State College right now
feetforlove::I'll be in the Beave for MSU and Akron, possibly YSU
PSUisBACK::i must be great then...........i have a ton of bad weight
BobLichtenfels::I'll get the Octagon set-up
PennStatePigskin::Maybe we could meet up.
PSU42Fan::osu game baby
trock56::Bob I want first match
PennStatePigskin::Buy you a brew or two
BobLichtenfels::I don't drink
leftcoastpsu::I heard 75 and sunny
BobLichtenfels::lol...Ok I joke I joke
mxbscout::Anyone coming up for Akron, we'll have an FOS tent up on Curtain Road for Football Eve
BobLichtenfels::Maybe I meant drink too much
feetforlove::I'll drop by the FOS tent
Rathskeller::Is FOS having a tent for any games?
PSUisBACK::where will the FOS booth be set up?
PSU42Fan::central catholic on fox sports on saturday
PennStatePigskin::I'll be at em all, God willing
PSU42Fan::that's wiz, right?
BobLichtenfels::Thiel, baby I'd say by two scores
mxbscout::right across from the BJC
NewYorkNittany::bob do you know if penn state is still recruiting iloegbu?
Psu96::FOS tent on Curtain Road leading to the stadium for Football Eve
LexLion::2 FG's, 2 TD's? 1 TD, 1 FG?
Nittanylfan::nice.. I'll visit
BobLichtenfels::you can see Ditto, Wiz and Sukay saturday in the double header
mxbscout::We are also doing an FOS webcast Friday at noon
feetforlove::Will the tent be out there every game?
PSUSmitty::Bob - any insight into our running back recruiting?
mendy4psu::any new updates with Paternoville?
mendy4psu::why are they camping for Akron anyways
feetforlove::it's opening game
feetforlove::not so much akron, but opening game
feetforlove::to say u were tehre from teh beginning to the end
PlaybookMark::mendy - the students are chomping at the bit for football - I know crazy
HowardStern::will the cutie from the FOS Myspace page be there?
PennStatePigskin::I LOVE the enthusiasm of the student body in pregame for the 1st game.
feetforlove::I cant make Football Eve, due to school
PSURocks40::what's the weather looking like for Sat? Is Ernersto going to strike?
BobLichtenfels::I will give you this morsel, I do not expect that McCoy will land in Miami. I personally think he ends up elsewhaere and I have heard from some folks close to the situation, do not count on him not going to PSU
restoartheroar::what time if football eve
mxbscout::for future home games, we have an FOS Happy Hour planned at the real Lions Den. This starts with the YSU game. Football Eve stuff outside the stadium starts at 6 p.m. Gates open at 7 p.m. Their is a Spikes game at 4 p.m.
PSUSmitty::i have heard that the door is more wide open for Shady than some people thing
mendy4psu::Bob, did McCoy talk about PSU at all?
feetforlove::I think too many people are saying that they dont wan McCory
PSUisBACK::Bob ...........that is more double negatives than my 5th graders use in a week.............
PSU42Fan::so you are saying he could come?
am19psu::too.. many.. negatives.. bob.. arrrgggh
Psu96::I wouldn't be surprised if McCoy ends up at MD or Va Tech, possibly NC State
HowardStern::do not count on him not going to PSU?
78Lion::Vtech the other and is Maryland or NCState in the mix
Rathskeller::He needs Joe and PSU as much as we need him.
BobLichtenfels::Shady danced around the topic, but I have learned to read between the lines and he is more than open
BobLichtenfels::I play Hold em dammit I can read people...lol
PSUSmitty::PSU42 - yes, the door is not yet completely closed
leftcoastpsu::Rate him Bob - comp to BG others?
mendy4psu::i cleaned up down AC playing limit
78Lion::but you play online bob
PSU42Fan::i was trying to decipher bob's quadruple negatives
Natty::psu's grade policy makes no sense when you think about it, totally random it seems
BobLichtenfels::Mansionpoker,net..I will make the Pokerdome one day
PSUSmitty::Shady never went to a juco
PSUisBACK::i'm not NOT going to get into not talking about Shady McCoy again..........
PlaybookMark::Morelli is fired up to play this weekend - he is anxious to ride the bus over and show his stuff
abstutz::1st time chat... hi everyone WE ARE!
am19psu::looks like i'll just get there after class at 430
BobLichtenfels::I would take Shady over any back that PSU is currently looking at
mendy4psu::is Shady healed up?
PlaybookMark::he abstutz - welcome
leftcoastpsu::that is what I thought you would say
PSUSmitty::me too Bob - amazing player
78Lion::is he starting Bob or is the other Miami commit starting?
PSU42Fan::i see that
leftcoastpsu::hey Smitty - how's the game
BobLichtenfels::shady's good to go, just getting his conditioning back
restoartheroar::too high a risk
PSUSmitty::lets ask PIB what he thinks of landing McCoy
PSUisBACK::have him come up...........
PSURocks40::what's ernesto looking like for the weekend?
PSUSmitty::Leftyy - pretty bad right now
abstutz::sorry if already discussed, but what is the latest on B. Green? saw a lot of posting going on today.
BobLichtenfels::Cooper was first on the depth chart for the Hudson Valley game, because Shady arrived late to camp
restoartheroar::he has an attitude you know that
HowardStern::big IF...but if Shady were on campus Royster would be fight ing for # 2 on the depth chart
BobLichtenfels::Shady is a great kid, he is just highly competitive
psuthebest::when will we know where shady is heading bob?
PSUSmitty::i have heard that Royster is doing very, very well
PennStatePigskin::B Green if at SCum game we have a shot,
PSUSmitty::in fact, the staff is vey high on him
feetforlove::I expect him to be a surprise
leftcoastpsu::I really hope he pulls it together and he lands at PSU
BobLichtenfels::Probably not until late
PSUisBACK::difference between Royster and McCoy is that Evan can read and comprehend the playbook............
trock56::PIB not nice BUT FUNNY
psuruls::low blow PIB
leftcoastpsu::PIB - that one will hurt
FurnaceB::you know that for fact PIB?
BobLichtenfels::Reading a playbook and taking a Trig test are not quite the same
PSU42Fan::what is the deal with the animosity towards mccoy?
feetforlove::Trig is hard ish man
FurnaceB::McCoy should be a high priority for us
PSU42Fan::it's not like he said anything about royster?
Natty::who cares if these kids can read, i care that he can run real fast
Rathskeller::it was a joke- sheesh
StevisInHSV::No offense to Royster but he isn't in McCoy's league as a TB
Natty::he can go work at mcdonalds after PSU for all i care
Sweeney97::which freshman Offensive lineman has impressed the most?
trock56::natty thats the psu spirit
PSUisBACK::Natty.........this is PSU...........not Pitt...........
trock56::Natty thats the psu spirit
HowardStern::i hope Royster is great...but talent wise he aint McCoy
restoartheroar::Chemistry above talent
HowardStern::McCoy excels in all areas of the game
PennStatePigskin::Bob, will the stash be in deep poop with a 6-6 season?
PlaybookMark::Upset special this week? I'd go with Wisconsin getting knocked off
Sweeney97::bob what are you thoughts on Lou elisades
Nittanylfan::Mark....who do they play ???
trock56::I go with PITT
HowardStern::is Stocco out for the year?
mendy4psu::i don't think so Howard
feetforlove::they have no RBs it seems
abstutz::how comfortable is everyone with our recruiting class so far... so few ships, so many early commits
mrfolks::winning or losing trock
feetforlove::and there passing game is less than impressive
mendy4psu::i think he's questionable this week
HowardStern::i think Wiscy lost all their WRs
PlaybookMark::Wisky plays Bowling green
feetforlove::how is their D though?
78Lion::stocco only misses one or two games but it won't matter
restoartheroar::WE ARE... PENN STATE!!!!
LexLion::You are right Stern
StevisInHSV::stern good possibility the kid from Scotland plays this year
PSUfan88::i think the BG quarterback is suspended as well
BobLichtenfels::I love Big Lou, he is an ass kickin machine
mrfolks::man, people won't le that one go, eh bob?
Sweeney97::bob, you think he is a tackle or guard?
PSUSmitty::Playbook Mark - who is Wiscy playing?
Maxicat::somewhere in Ohio, Ithink
PSU42Fan::so do the recent problems at OT facilitate a move to O for odrick in '07?
LexLion::Wiscy v. BGSU is in Cleveland
feetforlove::Bowling Green is THE ugliest place i've ever been to
mendy4psu::Bob, what's the feeling with Pitt this year?
Natty::PIB-he is seriously hurt, i'm betting labrum surgery after the season
feetforlove::and dead in the winter
Maxicat::that's it Clev
Nittanylfan::yea.. I do remember. its in Clevenland
PSUisBACK::he's hurt in the head........
PSUSmitty::sorry - missed it earlier
PSU42Fan::all you can do is drink
LexLion::go to Jackson State brother
feetforlove::what about Cleveland? Bowling Green isnt near Cleveland
LexLion::Game is in Cleveland
Maxicat::My upset Minny
feetforlove::Whats up with Minny, do they have much left?
LexLion::Cupito back for his 20th year
78Lion::has all his WR too
feetforlove::I dont think he's that great of a QB
Sweeney97::bob what are your thoughts on our recruiting class so far, and how we stand with the recruits
BobLichtenfels::Mendy 6-6/7-5 maybe 8-4
LexLion::Wheelwright is a good solid WR
78Lion::if he isn't they don't win many
PSUSmitty::so who believes ND struggles against Georgia Tech?
am19psu::payne is too, lex
PSUSmitty::i think that might be more hype than substance
Maxicat::Who is Northwestern playing on Thurs?
LexLion::Spaeth is a solid TE. I believe he is back
PSUisBACK::i think GT beats ND...........
PlaybookMark::Smitty - I think GT gives ND a handful
BobLichtenfels::I know this will go over well, but I'm a little disappointed with it coming off the season they had
feetforlove::Miami of OHio
feetforlove::I wanna go to that game
PSU42Fan::nd wins by 7-10 but looks vulnerable
feetforlove::since my sister goes to Miami
Nittanylfan::any big ten teams get knocked off this weekend ??
LexLion::Miami is going to win that one
HowardStern::you arent the only one Bob
PlaybookMark::NW plays Miami Ohio
Sweeney97::i agree bob
BobLichtenfels::watch Ryne Robinson maybe the most explosive kid in college football that nobody ever sees
feetforlove::I went to the Miami-Bowling green game last year, and god my you know whats froze off
Tiapan::yes thats a fair statement
Nittanylfan::Minny vs Kent State
PSUSmitty::if Johnson lights up their secondary, i will feel even more confident than i do about our game against them
Natty::bob-don't say that abou tthis class, you'll get crucified
Sweeney97::bob where do you think Austin is leaning?
FurnaceB::this is a subpar class so far
feetforlove::I have a bad feeling about Austin
BobLichtenfels::You know me Natty I tend to buck the system once in a while
Rathskeller::what's the good word?
BobLichtenfels::I think Austin ends up in Miami
mendy4psu::it's a good class for depth purposes, no real standouts but plenty of guys who will contribute
FurnaceB::how could anyone possibly have a really good feeling about Austin at this point?
Ed001::Think it'll rain??
psulions12::ed's the man
Nittanylfan::I really hope not...
restoartheroar::ANY possibility on Austin coming to PSU MICH?
PSURocks40::hope it doesn't
PSUSmitty::Mendy 100% correct
78Lion::Ed, remember Navy '74?
PSUSmitty::this class is about depth
BobLichtenfels::Never say Never in recruiting
PSUSmitty::the last two were about building an offense and a defense
PSUisBACK::if Maybin is future captain material........his buddy Austin will be visiting for Michigan
PSUSmitty::i would still rather see some 5 star skill people though
Ed001::78 I was'nt born yet.
BobLichtenfels::11-1 and a big win over FSU you should have a top ten class, no excuses
PSUSmitty::20% chance to land Austin at best
PSURocks40::even with only 15 schollies?
HowardStern::Bob is right
HowardStern::we have about 20
PSURocks40::bob, penn state have any chance with Austin?
Ed001::Bob you know it is almost impossible to have a top ten class without a QB and only 18-19 scholarships
BobLichtenfels::its Penn State
PSU42Fan::psu should always be near top 10 no matter what
mendy4psu::Bob, are you LK25
PSUSmitty::PIB - is Maybin banging Austin's ear these days?
feetforlove::Where does Austin go to school again
HowardStern::we have a class right now that Purdue or BC would be thrilled with
Sweeney97::bob, any players come to mind that we missed out on especially since we had a great season
LexLion::As long as he is only banging his ear
PennStatePigskin::very good point ed.
78Lion::in DC Ballou
BobLichtenfels::its not impossible, difficult but not impossible, PSU is one of the most prestigeous programs in the history of the game they should always finish high
PSUisBACK::he would be an ideal host..............
PSU42Fan::we have too much young depth to attract top talent
FurnaceB::Aaron Maybin will have zero influence on Austin's decision
PSU42Fan::they want to play early and we can't guarantee it
78Lion::KNow that how Furnace
Ed001::Based on the cumulative star ratings it is damn near impossible.
feetforlove::Except for RB position
PSUisBACK::just had Maybin had no influence on ALE's decision?
PSU42Fan::those positions are open
PSURocks40::42fan, then why do people go to USC?
BobLichtenfels::Austin goes to Ballou
BobLichtenfels::No Mendy I am not LK
PSU42Fan::because its california
Sweeney97::Ed whats the word on lou elisades, how does he look?
BWW71::wheres the eating popcorn emotican?
feetforlove::Hollywood doesnt have Sticky BUns
Ed001::Lou is a player
LexLion::Like who Bob?
PSU42Fan::even if you never play you still have fun
mendy4psu::i know Bob, LK's been saying the same thing for awhile now
FurnaceB::I love these guys that think kids make decisions based on what their buddies do
Sweeney97::ed think he may be next year starting guard
JsT10::Bob, what in-state kids did Psu drop the ball with?
spud358::how does Lou look at OT?
BobLichtenfels::Devlin is better than Muldrow
HowardStern::i dont think PSU dropped the ball in PA this year
PlaybookMark::Lou is "nasty" - compared to Shipley with his game play
PennStatePigskin::Is Logan El practicing yet. Is Logan El a player?
HowardStern::muldrow ill give you
feetforlove::Devlin is better then Bostick IMO
Psu96::No need for a FB Bob. PSU hardly uses one now
HowardStern::but basically PSU is getting all the top PA kids
78Lion::Would have loved Hyno but with 15 ships how do you take a FB
feetforlove::OSU locks down Ohio
PSUNIP::D@mn. A lot of people in here
HowardStern::where PA screwed the pooch this year was NJ
LexLion::He had no interest in PSU right?
Psu96::Clemons seemed like he never wanted anything to do with PSU
BobLichtenfels::I agree Stern
PSUSmitty::Sweeney - i have heard the staff loves Big Lou
StevisInHSV::feet if we get stronger I can see that changing after this year
feetforlove::it's insane, because I live in Ohio, and other than a few Michigan fans, and PSU fans, EVERYONE wants to go to OSU, or doesnt wanna leave the state
Ed001::Thank you Dick Anderson!!
BobLichtenfels::NJ has a lot of high end talent
FurnaceB::Clemons wasn't a big priority for PSU..........nice potential, but not a guy I'm worried about losing
Rathskeller::Maybe we should go after him now- ;-)
LiverpoolLion::clemons wasn't a need
PSUSmitty::could potentially play all line positions
NewYorkNittany::whats the story with evan rodriguez bob?
Rathskeller::Hyno- that is.
restoartheroar::OT but I know a kid on State college high school he played Bostic said he isnt that good, easy system
BobLichtenfels::Gaskins and Gradkowski are better then the NC kid
mrfolks::feet- it is b/c they have no other major player in team sports...
BobLichtenfels::Jacobson would eat his lunch
mrfolks::pro FB in Ohio sux recently, so they have to focus on OSU
FurnaceB::we are comparing Pitt's class to PSU's thus far??
Psu96::PSU needs to get a more dynamic guy on North Jersey. Coach Anderson is a great coach, but he's at the end of his career and isn't a dynamic recruiter in an area where there's a lot of talent
feetforlove::My friend was talking about Stupar, and stuff and saying he was really good, and I live in ohio, and visitig them, and i was like, "Oh yeah Nathan"
BobLichtenfels::Chaz Powell was a steal
HowardStern::we just have to hope to get lucky with muldrow
PSUSmitty::agree on the Jersey comments - we have been terrible there for years - Jarret, Rolle, Perez
PennStatePigskin::The Nc kid was a gamble
PSUSmitty::and many more got away
PSU42Fan::afc north champs last year?
scpsu21::They had a nice article about Nathan Stupar in the Patriot News
mrfolks::the bengals the last two years, but what about the 15 before that?
feetforlove::I heard State College has a nicer gym than PSU possibly
PSU42Fan::people in ohio love osu regardless
scpsu21::did anyone read dave jones' predicitions
PSU42Fan::has nothing to do with cincy or cleve
PSUNIP::What's the story with Logane El?
scpsu21::LOL Feet no way state highs gym is mediocre
Rathskeller::good god, no
PSUCrusader::bob what is your opinion of powell? he goes to my former high school...
Spider legs 11::I live in OH as well and OSU does such a GREAT job marketing its program and players. Every kid in OH wants to go to OSU
PlaybookMark::NIP - Clearinghouse issue with the NCAA - they are backlogged with academic verifications
Rathskeller::The Patriot news is dead to me
restoartheroar::Stupar is going to get a reality check at PSU
restoartheroar::he is COCKY
BobLichtenfels::I think Powell is a great athlete, had he waited longer I think he would have approached the 20 offer plateau
PlaybookMark::Restore - a LOT of players go through that - Big fish syndrom
FurnaceB::is that you Carol?
Spider legs 11::Joe veil of secrecy hurts the program in this regard
Tiapan::I heard the same thing restoar
scpsu21::restore what the heck are you talking about
78Lion::what big time recruit isn't cocky
mxbscout::Stupar is legit, though. See him vs. McCoy and company last season?
scpsu21::rathskeller to save you effort
BobLichtenfels::Stupar is as humble and as nice of a kid as I have ever met
NewYorkNittany::if you're a major college recruit and aren't cocky there is something wrong with you
BobLichtenfels::maybe on the field he is different which is a good thing
StevisInHSV::Bob Wiz or Jacobson, who better?
78Lion::thank you NY
Psu96::Better to be cocky and actually have the talent to back it up than be all talk, no game
restoartheroar::stupar is not humble
scpsu21::1. fsu 2. california 3. louisville 4. iowa
PSUNIP::I'm fine with kids being cocky. We heard the same thing about Bell. Nothing negative out of camp about him
Sweeney97::stupar had a great game vs shady, he kept the team in that game
PSUSmitty::Jacobson - his shoulders are as wide as a Mack truck
BobLichtenfels::right now Jacobson, but I think Wiz has more potential
scpsu21::do you go to state high restore
Sweeney97::bob, still think Wiz to psu?
restoartheroar::yeah my best friend is going to start at RB
scpsu21::doug suhey or shane gray
BobLichtenfels::I hope lumpy and Wiz make the AA Bowl and see what they do against Austin
psuthebest::is wiz going to be wearing the blue and white?
PSUSmitty::Bob - any of our guys going to the Tom Lemming
restoartheroar::no dont listen to the papers
scpsu21::who is it then
feetforlove::This guy in my class (frist day of school) was like, "Yeah i play football and i dropped the ball to lose the game last friday against our biggest rivals"
PSUSmitty::Notre Dame fashion show a.k.a. the US Army Event?
BobLichtenfels::not sure yet Smitty
HowardStern::does Wiz have a shot at the AA bowl?
scpsu21::yeah he is tough
PSUNIP::The AA Bowl is as crooked as the day is long.
HowardStern::i heard Jacobsen is already in
feetforlove::how good of a shot do we have with Wiz?
BobLichtenfels::I think Both will make it
HowardStern::cool i hope
BobLichtenfels::NIP I think its changing slowly hopefully
scpsu21::stupar is just a little different but he will heck of a player at psu he was unblockable all last year
HowardStern::gotta get rid of lemon
Psu96::No Lemming would help the AA game's credibility
restoartheroar::he will be great no doubt, he is a great player
PSUNIP::ND homer picking the team. ND network carrying it. I seriously felt bad for Frazier in that game last year. He was totally outmatched
