Franklin On Ficken: ‘He’s Had An Interesting Career’

ficken

1-0 bitchesssss. Really weird game though…

 

Remember this? Say no more. Ficken is a hero.

 

 

 

Kudos to young wideouts Geno Lewis and Daesean Hamilton. Showed a lot.

Penn State defense is rock solid as well.

However, O-line—question marks there.

Ps. Seems like Penn State ran the same eight offensive plays the entire game? Lacked creativity, didn’t go fast enough, that WR screen sucked, no RB screen passes, and where is Lynch?

Needs to work on throwing the ball away, admitting the play isn’t there. His confidence is booming, and he thinks he can make everything play, and throw into every tight window. That’s fine. He’ll learn and get better. But man, the dude is calm and cool in the pocket and throws the deep ball as beautiful in college as I’ve ever seen.

454 passing yards is a PSU record. And it’s only game one, in year two for this kid. Special is an under-statement.

They say we’re a cult. We say, you’re just jealous you aren’t in it.

VIDEO: PSU FOOTBALL IS BACK

 

I’M INTERNET YELLING BECAUSE I’M EXCITED.

(deep breath)

7am wake up. Hammered by 7:30am. Cannot wait. Penn State is two-point underdogs too, might have to make a little wager.

Ps. Not sure the line about UCF being “ready for us” quite works, you know, since the whole they beat us last year thing, but either way…great promo.

Report: Penn State’s Bowl Ban Could Be Lifted Next Season

247SportsAccording to Sporting News’ Matt Hayes, two sources within the NCAA say if Penn State continues to “reach and go beyond” the recommendations laid out in the Freeh report, the Nittany Lions will have a “strong case” to get its bowl ban lifted next season.

Don’t tease me Matt Hayes. Do NOT tease me.

You never know. Volcanoes and what not. Just happy to wake up to this tweet today. Now, let’s go to work. PSU football in four days. Hasn’t hit me yet.

James Franklin’s Daughter Just Won The Day

First thought, this is awesome. Second thought, why does Franklin have his little girl hitting blocking sleds? Seems kinda weird. Still awesome, but definitely kind of weird.

Instantly thought of:

yoast

 

Ps. Football less than a week away #HackCityBitch

Full Analysis Of The Birds’ Dress-Rehearsal Smashing Of The Steelers

Couple things:

1. These penalties are getting out of hand

2. Maclin won’t stop getting hurt and saying he’s fine. I can’t take it much longer.

3. That Shady screen-play (same play they ran to Sproles who tripped on the INT) is harmonious. Thing of beauty.

4. Defense looks solid

5. Alex Henery is atrocious, Eagles need a kicker badly

6. The Steelers are pretty bad, but Antonio Brown is a stud

7. Is it week 1 yet?

Watch: Full highlights here

PSU vs. UCF Ireland Game In Jeopardy Because Of A…Wait For It…Wait For It…Volcano!

CBSSportsYes, it seems that there’s been increased volcanic activity in Iceland, and there are concerns a volcano called Bárðarbunga could erupt. Do not ask me how to pronounce it because I have no idea.

The concern is that if the volcano erupts it could disrupt air travel to Europe just like in 2010 with another Icelandic volcano, Eyjafjallajökull (seriously, Iceland?), and over 10,000 flights to and from Europe were canceled due to the resulting ash spewed into the atmosphere. Penn State is currently scheduled to fly to Ireland on Tuesday Aug. 26, and the school is aware of the possible eruption.

So what would happen if the volcano does erupt and cancels the game? I don’t know. I’m guessing the game would be postponed to another time and played somewhere in the United States, possibly in Happy Valley, or maybe in Orlando.

volanco

A volcano though?

Hopefully the volcano doesn’t erupt, it would ruin a sick day and would really suck for everyone making a trip out of this game.

8:30am start time for everyone staying in Penn State — or in Philly with Made In America — makes for a pretty sweet drinking day. Don’t even both trying to sleep Friday night.
