lose to Virginia & Ohio and Get a million dollar raise
Only at Penn state
If you guys win 8 with Hack taking snaps this year, I will be very impressed. I'd love to see it.
BOB in Tuscaloosa in about 5-7 years has a nice ring to it as well! (g)
Plus Maryland unis, lolcopter
As was already said, we ended last year with only 67 scholarship players. Clearly, staying healthy will be a factor moving forward. If we do that, BOB is collecting enough talent for 8-9 win seasons. If not, then it will be tough. Not much you can do about that though. No use worrying.
There are plenty of things that can happen that would make us struggle, but those are just what ifs. If we can stay reasonably healthy, we should have the talent and coaching to win 7-8 games a year. You got to figure we have 4-5 games each year that will be real winnable. I mean this year we play Syracuse, Kent State, EMU, and UCF in the non conference, all should be wins. Then if we win 3 conference games we are at 7 wins and I don't see us losing to Minnesota, Purdue, Indiana and Illinois. We could lose to OSU, Michigan, Wisconsin and Nebraska every year and still win 7 games a year.
USC went 7-6 because they have a miserable coaching staff. The talent is there to win at a very high level.
Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
This is the threat to PSU IMO. O'Brien just got a big pay raise for this and next season, and then has a big pay dip in 2015 IIRC, and that is when he will be the most likely to leave.
I and all PSU fans are praying Belichek coaches for another 15 years at NE.
Take a first round draft pick and a top-10 talent team, lead them to a 7-6 season with a bowl loss to GaTech, and keep your job.
Only at USCw.

If PSU likes what they see from him, that payscale will change. I expect an extension for him that will change that 2015 pay.
Well your opinion is moronic.
Considering he's one of the best coaches in the country, I hope this happens.
Not sure who we could find that would be as good.
I don't disagree... however this could be his forte. You don't know what he would be like with a full deck of cards... he may not be what he is as an underdog. I'll root for him to succeed though.
Edit-meant to quot TexasLion above me

Wait what? One of the best in the country? Sorry, I can't agree even with my bluest and whitest glasses. He could end up there, but he ain't there yet. He's got a whole lot to prove still. I think he's got potential to get there, but I would never call him one of the best yet.
He had a few rough coaching performances last year (see Ohio 2nd half, OSU), but as he gets more and more seasoned I expect those kind of mistakes to be few and far between.
He's talented enough, hopefully we can continue to improve.
If he's as good with a full deck as he is with half, then he served his purpose honorably and we can split paths. What matters is BOB seeing us through the sanctions, and then when the fight is fair again another coach can come in.
Yeah, he's still got a lot to prove. I would call him the best crisis managers in the country though.
I love that BOB is our coach, but he has some work to do as a HC. Putting him at the level of Urbs or Saban is just silly right now.
Then I've had too much koolaid.
Fuck it, I think BOB is one of the best coaches in the nation. We're lucky we have him.
No doubt we are lucky. He is a great play caller, is proving to be a very good recruiter and he obviously knows how to get the team to buy in. He also showed his green moments last year, and he tends to get a little greedy at times. The MOX bailed him out a few times with great plays.
With that being said, I couldn't be happier.
I like aggressive coaches, especially after the crap I saw my first two years at PSU, and what I see now at OU. He's my kind of coach, so I love it.
And at McGloin bailing him out. Other than his one display of athleticism with the double check crap, what play did he make that would be considered bailing anybody out? I remember far more plays that he put the team in a bad spot than bailing the offense out. Probably because I can only think of one play.
-4th down against Temple, 41 yard TD pass to Robinson.
-4th down against NW, 6 yard TD pass to Robinson (we were down by two scores at the time)
-4th down against NW, big 1st down pass to BMF mid-way through the 4th qtr.
Those are the three that stick out to me. Besides, just being the MOX and not Bolden or Jones is reason enough to say that McGloin bailed BOB out.
7-5/8-4 seems very unrealistic. Depth, ESP on the lines, is going to be so thin.
Really isn't at all. Half of the Big 10 sucks and we aren't playing any good teams in our non conference.
1) Great catch by Robinson, had to spin in midair to make the catch. What did McGloin do that was spectacular on that play? He threw the ball to where it was supposed to be thrown. link= http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xE8AGj8MnQY
2) Diving catch by Robinson, but it was thrown in a place where only his guy could get it. I don't see that as "bailing out" though. Also, Robinson saves a bad pass from being an INT at 0:55 mark. link= http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPCcpUhNtt8
3) That throw was a nice play by McGloin, so I'll give you that one. My nitpicking though, they blitzed 3 people. link=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U88jYnbTdRw
So McGloin bailed us out on two plays. He also threw a couple crippling INTs this season. I just don't give him credit for as much as you do I guess. By your logic whoever was QB1 bailed BOB out. So did Donovon Smith, because he was LT1. So did Allen Robinson (POTY for us on offense), because he was WR1.
Its been think for us on the OL for a while now, at least as long as I've been at PSU.
I don't know many teams in the country that can hold up to OL injuries though.
