Re: Penn State Football: Building a New Foundation

Rob Bolden has been released from his scholly. Good luck to him.

Report is that he may transfer to LSU. Visited this weekend. Not sure why they would want him considering he is terrible though.

Re: Penn State Football: Building a New Foundation

USC has a bunch of unproven RBs and Redd was a 2nd team all conference selection. He won't be the backup for long if at all.

Re: Penn State Football: Building a New Foundation

And he wasn't going to transfer to be a backup.

he had to choose between being a starter and the star in rapeville and being 'depth' at usc.

he chose depth, smart choice.

Re: Penn State Football: Building a New Foundation

from another board...

Quote:
To put it into perspective, they've lost their:

Star RB

#1 WR

Starting slot receiver

Backup QB

Starting Punter/Kicker

Backup MLB

Backup FS

Backup TE

3rd string DT

Backup CB

-----------------------------

Their DB depth looks absolutely atrocious, and Michigan fans know what happens when you only have 4 scholarship CBs on your roster, and only 7 total scholarship DBs. It's goodnight Irene if even one guy gets injured.

They only have 7 scholarship LBs left, which means they've basically got 1 backup per position, so again, any injuries and it's time to que the fat lady.

Their running back situation appears to be a pu-pu platter, as a walk on is presently in competition for the starting job.

The top 4 receivers on their depth chart combined for 13 catches, 207 yards, and 0 touchdowns last year.

Their top 2 TEs did not catch a single pass last year.

In short, their offense consists of a walk on QB in his 3rd year starting after two very walk on like seasons, and no skill players with any valauble experience what so ever. Penn State's defense should be solid, but it's paper thin. A couple of injuries would completely decimate them, and turn them into a carbon copy of Michigan's defense circa the last few years.

The slot receiver was dismissed earlier this year for personal problems. He didn't transfer.

Re: Penn State Football: Building a New Foundation

And Bill Belton is the starting RB. He isn't a walk on. There is no RB competition currently.

You'll be hearing Hackenberg to Brenneman for years to come!

As they try hopelessly to come from
behind every game after their secondary gets torched for 42 points a game.

Oh, and never in the post season.

The class of 2013 will have at least one bowl eligible year. Two if they redshirt.

Re: Penn State Football: Building a New Foundation

The beginning of a new era starts today. Have to have a good season in order to hold on to some of these four and five star recruits.

Honestly, what are your expectations for today's game? Do you expect that PSU will be able to keep it close?
