Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

Can someone get us a count of players on the field for our blocked FG? Looked we might have been short a couple there...

In regards to recruiting and the small class size for this year, wouldn't the expectation be that a coaching change would lead to some guys transferring thus increasing the size of the recruiting class? I would hope that the number of transfers would be minimal or even zero, but that never seems to be the case in these situations.

That's probably not going to happen against an end-of-half prevent Cover 4.

It seems that Hoke wanted them to throw instead of punt. I think I agree.
Bad things can happen on a punt return. You could try to be aggressive and go for the block, but you could end up roughing the punter which would give them a 1st down with time still remaining on the clock. You could try to set up a return, but a muffed punt ends in almost guaranteed points for Penn State.
Alternatively, you force them into trying a Hail Mary. The bad thing you're worried about here is a TD. Anything underneath is pointless because there is no time left. From the spot on the field they were, and their offenses proven inability to protect the quarterback, there was very little chance of that being executed properly by PSU. However, it is one more chance for your DL.
This might be a case of Hoke's DL mindset taking over. He's basically avoiding the most risk averse decision (letting the clock run out) to give his DL one more chance to make a play.

How about we just call it the Penn State game instead of UTL? #unbrandoning

Here is alternative way to stick it to Brandon: don't ever under any circumstances refer to the Penn State game as UTL. It is the Penn State game.
UTL 1? That was the Notre Dame game, etc.
