  1. And almost any scene between Vito and that johnnycake waiter/firefighter.
  2. They should have just brought out Eli and Odell to do a live version of that Dirty Dancing commercial from last year.
  3. Until the past fifteen minutes, the worst halftime show I’d ever seen was at a Blockbuster Bowl in the early 1990’s. Penn State was playing Florida State. The halftime show was a combination of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Fred Travalena. Thanks, Goodell.
  4. My Nittany Lions suck this year. We were never exactly very good at basketball, but this year is an embarrassment. Sorry, rest of the B1G!
  5. Agree. Wimbush thought the grass would be greener at Notre Dame and didn’t look particularly good there. Wish him well somewhere else but would rather roll with the guys we already have that have shown they want to be here. What are your thoughts on Martell?
  6. I've seen a few folks mention weather from the perspective of kids wanting to play in better vs. worse weather. Another related factor is that many of these southern teams rarely head north of the Mason Dixon line. So they don't have to play in bad weather like Big 10 teams do, for example. Getting to play most games in sunny and favorable conditions must be nice compared to having to play in Nebraska or Iowa in November. If you couple a presumed high-end talent home field advantage in places like Georgia and Florida with rarely/never having to play in snow/ice/other poor-weather situations, one could argue that that helps minimize the risk of losing and therefore increases the chance of staying toward the top of the polls and in the right neighborhood for playoff consideration.
  7. Add Bates, Givens, and Miller to the list of early departures. Likely Sanders too. Possibly Gonzales too. While it may help recruiting to see more players getting a shot to play on Sundays, other than Sanders and McGovern I wonder if/how high some of these others get drafted.
  8. McGovern going pro is interesting given how badly he played yesterday. On the other hand, given the lack of development on the OL he probably didn't stand to gain much by staying either.
  9. 4-4 against bowl teams. Seem even farther from elite than Franklin suggested after the Ohio State game. At some point, if the gains in recruiting don’t show consistently on the field then either we are recruiting the wrong kids for the system the coaches want to run, or we aren’t preparing the kids properly to execute the system, or the system itself is flawed. We lost a lot of talent after last year, and some key coaches. Seems like we might have survived one or the other, but the combination of both was more than we could overcome with the remaining players and coaches. Special teams were a liability today and much of the year...hope they get adequate attention before next fall. Thanks to the departing seniors and players for helping to “Restore the Roar” these past few years.
  10. Sounds like the job is his from now on.
  11. Sounds like negative recruiting perfectly timed just days before the early signing period.
