That run off simply prevented the inevitable, a failed drive late with 10 seconds left and no timeouts. Hard to get too broken up about it. More annoyed that PSU fumbled it away a play after Robinson would have scored a TD had he not been interfered with. They got the PI call, but their refusal to go for the jugular was annoying. So many predictable first-down runs. Not taking anything away from UCF (their defender did what he had to do to take away a sure TD, and they controlled the offensive line of scrimmage most of the night), but PSU's predictability and mistakes (hello tackling) makes it a deserving loss. Perhaps one they will learn from.

The strength of the secondary this year was something fans were looking forward to since last season--there's a reason that Obeng-Agyapong, a fifth year graduate student who started every game in 2012 at the safety position, was passed over by not one but two other players. As for the front four..DaQuan Jones had 9 tackles and 3 TFLs...I guess I'm just not seeing what you're seeing. I agree with the "inferior competition" but the PSU schedule isn't exactly scary.

The only part of the defense that worries me is at the linebacker position, if only because the starting combination of Hull/Carson couldn't go one game without getting hurt.


I agree their schedule isnt very good, but they should start 5-0 and will likely lose to all 4 of the ranked teams they play. I'm just saying given the competition I expected a lot more pressure on the QB from Penn State's front 4. Barnes was almost non-existant and Olaniyan wasn't a factor. I think the secondary was the beneficiary of poor QB play which will definitely improve in conference. Agree to Disagree.



As I said after week 1, the Penn State D is really going to struggle this year. I didnt think it was going to come this early, but given the lack of top end talent it was inevitable. Until the sanctions are over it really doesnt matter any way.

Whomever had possession of the recording was very deliberate in their timing--there's a reason it wasn't released until yesterday.

Yup. I actually made a random "Bo Pelini is a turd" comment in this thread on Saturday before I even knew about this story.

Saban paused a moment, put his bags down and made eye contact to make sure his point would be understood. “I think Johnny’s a unique player,” he said. “Many people have said about these guys, like [Robert Griffin III], that they’re not really NFL-style quarterbacks. But yet they’re all doing pretty well in the NFL.

“I think when somebody’s as instinctive as [Manziel] is, and as fast as he is, and as athletic as he is, and he’s developing into a pretty good passer—I mean last year he really developed as a passer—I do think he has an NFL future.”


He and Wilson also share one of the most important traits in determining whether or not a quarterback will succeed in the pros: in the face of a pass rush, is the player calm? Does he stand in the pocket, deliver the ball and take a hit—or is does the pressure alter his mechanics, both in footwork and arm angle? Manziel remains tranquil in the midst of a driving storm. He never looks at the rush, his eyes are always downfield; he has a tremendous feel for what’s going on around him; and he doesn’t bolt from the pocket unless he has to. Manziel is a pocket passer.

And yet, he’s probably at his best when he’s on the move. “When chaos erupts—when everything breaks down and chaos begins—and he runs around, that’s his moment,” the AFC general manager says. “Is he a pure pocket passer? No. Does he have some athleticism to beat you with his feet and stuff? Yeah.”

Did anyone else notice how flat footed he was against Alabama? It was strikingly obvious to me.

I.....what? Are you saying he was throwing flat-footed rather than stepping into his throws? Or flat-footed like slow and plodding? Because, again, what?

If that is what he looks like flat-footed, even if he is a colossal *****, the Steelers need to tank this year and next year to get him. :pop:

Watch the video, lookup some youtubes, you'll see for yourself.

When he drops back into the pocket from being under center his completely flat footed. It's not until he breaks out of the pocket that you see him get up on his toes. I just thought it was interesting. All of this trying to create an argument off of my comment is just :face:

Just to be clear, I wasn't trying to "argue" with you at all. I was asking you to clarify what you were saying because I genuinely didn't understand it in light of how I viewed his performance.

It's strange getting excited about a game when the players who will be in those games are currently in 3rd grade.

How sweet would a Pitt-WVU-PSU yearly triangular series be (akin to the Army-Navy-Air Force Commander in Chief Trophy)? Would never happen of course, but I can long for the 80s all I want.

What would the trophy be called?
