|1 day 33 min ago||Yes, this year may not be bad||
Yes, this year may not be bad given the relative off years for the teams, but on average they play a tougher schedule than 90% of college football. Can't believe I'm defending ND on this
|1 day 36 min ago||Not about maintaining a||
Not about maintaining a redshirt for the sake of maintaining a redshirt. Happy for the kid because it sounds like he's getting his academics in order. He may never play on Sundays so I hope he gets a degree the brief time he's in Ann Arbor.
|1 day 50 min ago||If it means Walker gets his||
If it means Walker gets his academics in order for his future, I think that's great news. However, I still could care less if the team decided to burn his redshirt for no other reason than to contribute on special teams.
|1 day 55 min ago||Don't care. Players work too||
Don't care. Players work too hard to not get in the game if they can contribute even if it's just special teams. If he's so good that he can get drafted after three years, he's not staying for a fifth year anyways.
|1 day 1 hour ago||When I say one of the||
When I say one of the toughest, it's not only accounting for players' standards. Year in and year out, they have one of the toughest schedules and have unrealistic expectations every year.

May James Franklin continue to run PSU further into the ground.

Brian seemed particularly giddy, which I can thoroughly empathize with as I likely attended UM around the same time. Good to have UM football familiar again after a decade to forget. My Monday is definitely going more quickly as a result.
|1 day 1 hour ago||LSU is not barren of talent.||
LSU is not barren of talent. They are just completely mismanaged. You're probably right about the age factor. For some reason, I thought Dantonio to be around Harbaugh's age

Probably not but would like to see him leave MSU buried in a big pile of garbage

Every team deals with some injuries. It hurts because Clark is a good CB but hopefully manageable

As much as I hate ND, ND is a really tough job. Not sure how Herman would handle it frankly.
|1 day 4 hours ago||Definitely Hand but not||
Definitely Hand but not McDowell as his heart always seems to be with Sparty. At the same time, without a collapse, we may have gotten Harbaugh. I like the collapse for Harbaugh trade personally.

Agreed. Hoping David Long or whoever the replacement is can settle into the 3rd CB role over the course of the season

Concerned but hoping that David Long can step-in and become a relatively good B10 by the end of the year.
|1 day 4 hours ago||Louisiana is an awesome||
Louisiana is an awesome recruiting hotbed with players who generally stay instate. Dantonio would be just fine plucking instate talent.
|1 day 4 hours ago||I agree with Herman as no. 1,||
I agree with Herman as no. 1, but I'd have Dantonio as no. 2. With LSU recruits, he'd be a really, really tough out.
|1 day 4 hours ago||I have to give "respekt" to||
I have to give "respekt" to Dantonio. He is a top 5-7 coach and gets his players up to play UM every year like it is the Super Bowl. I would obviously still rather have Harbaugh but wouldn't mind seeing some other coach on the sidelines for a few years. I'm thinking Bobby Williams level.

Haven't watched every Penn State game but thought McSorley was a decent QB. He threw a few nice balls down the field in the games that I saw. I was also impressed by Godwin.

No doubt, but I believe the offensive philosophy at the time hindered the team overall. They had the weapons to just run up the score but too often played down to the level of competition.

To me, that was endemic of the Carr era. We had all the offensive weapons and would step off the gas unnecessarily.

Can't really fault Henson for taking $17mm.

Separately, those Carr recruiting classes in the mid-to-late 90s were absolutely ridiculous. I still can't believe there wasn't one more team that went to a national championship game during that time.
|6 days 1 hour ago||I went to undergrad at the||
I went to undergrad at the same time (95-99) as Brady, and there was a split of fans who wanted Henson to be the heir apparent. I was pro-Brady and thought that the 99-00 team was shortchanged a bit by rotating QBs. There was no doubt, however, that there was room for debate. Henson had all the tools in college.
