    Yeah, its pretty clear he doesn't give a shit about burning bridges, which makes him look like teh short timer everyone outside of Michigan fans saw him as.

    I'm really hoping this is sarcasm, it was a walk on who would never see the field leaving and going to an FCS school where he MAY get a chance to play.

    Outside of Reeder, the others were all expected, even encouraged.

    yeah, hope all their recruits run to the fax machine or have their LOI's actually show up. They are way over the 85 man limit with teh kids they've already taken and are still taking more. A bunch of kids are going to be priocessed, told they can't enroll till Winter and forced to grayshirt or just told sorry, no room for you.

    We'll end up around 21-22 with several solid 3 star players this weekend. Still have a shot with Ferns, Hamlin and Diaboute as well. Its not a super finish, but it was a super start, we have 3 five stars and a ton of talent in the class, will still end up top 15.

    No offense and this isn't directed at you at all LBU but who gives a fuck how we started the recruiting year. That's like saying we brought the prom queen home but couldn't get it up.
    My dad always told me its not how you start but how you finished and my God we fell flat on our face and got curb stomped by Michigan. So they (UM) might be pissing off recruits, you know what they still got them signed. We had a decent recruiting class then fell apart at the end. Yes we still have some good players but it could have been a lot better. Harbaugh and Meyers wow that sucks to recruit against. OSU with the rings and UM sleeping with our commits. Speaking of getting screwed that's how I feel after we keep losing out on players, players transferring, and coaches jumping ship.

    Question I just love ESPN (sarcasm). They can never say or do a nice piece on Penn State. Here is a clip on recruits saying their craziest official visit. They show recruits tell about what they enjoyed most about their campus visit and 99.9% committed to them. Well the only mention about PSU was a kid who didn't commit to us and mentioned something about milk being awesome. What the hell. Wow look out, kids will be beating down our doors because of our milk. (Believe he was talking about our ice cream) but seriously espn puts that on the air.

    So, you don't think Sanders, Simmons, Menet, McGovern, Zembeic, etc matter because they committed early and didn't wait till now to commit? your class is graded on the whole, not on how it finishes. We have a composite top 15 class, held off many schools for guys like the ones mentioned above and will finish out with some solid players and land in top 15 NAtionally.

    I'll take landing a bunch of big fish early and keeping them over panicking to see who you get at the last minute. As the roster fills and we get the depth, experience and in turn the wins, stronger finishes will come. BE glad that with a team coming off sanctions and 7-6 record with what was an extremely puzzling/lackluster offense, we still pulled an amazing class. We'll land some more quality kids before next season and hopefully JoeMo gets the offense moving and we have a more exciting product,which will also sell kids.

    LOL, Nordin finally makes it official with decommit. His offer was yanked soon as Barbir committed. Gilikin and BArbir taking some jabs at the plane commit video, good stuff

    Hamlin also took a shot at him, its getting good

    Interesting development, 6'4" JUCO DT Tyrel Chavis now taking OV to PSU this weekend. If his grades are in order, he's a take for sure. 2 years of eligibility, very disruptive bi body in middle. Hamlin tweeted out some pics from his in home with Franklin, family looks very happy.....this one may be more interesting than anyone thought for PSU

    Class still looks like its going to be strong. I don't see how anyone can complain about a top 15 class in the country. Getting any of Hamlin, Hill, Ferns, Dioubate would be a pretty solid ending imo, don't know if we get any of them but even if we don't there are still some difference makers in this class. Now we just have to see the coaches utilize the talent on the field.

    Finally some great publicity for Penn State and it was at the Pro Bowl game. Jon Gruden mentioned how Penn State keeps producing great Linebackers. He was saying that there was 3 linebackers Nittany Lions playing in the game Tamba Hali, NaVorro Bowman, Sean Lee plus Allen Robinson was there. All did great.

    yep, heard we had at least 2, possibly as many as 4, but JFF wanted to space out the announcements. Hopefully Snelson and Chavis are on board, apparently there were a couple unknown visitors last night as well.
