Kind of like with OSU?
What you said may be true, but for a linebacker it just makes the most stance from a football standpoint to choose PSU.
I have one upvote left, and I am not afraid to use it!!!
Yes. Thank you. It is reaching laughable status and he has contributed to it himself.
Would I like him to pick PSU? Sure. But if he doesn't there will still be relief because there won't be a thread dedicated to him every day.
Wrong. And I'm not slamming him at all, rather the whole circus he helped to create.
It's not about you, it's about him. Honestly, anyone who has followed recruiting can tell you that this is far from a circus. His recruitment is pretty standard for a kid of his caliber.
And if Anzalone was a heavy PSU lean at this current moment in time then nobody would be bringing up this supposed "circus" surrounding his recruitment.
Pretty funny transition here. Here are the recent Anzalone threads regarding his most recent visit to PSU and his announcement date:
Still somewhat positive and optimistic:
And now fast forward to today with the news leaking that he is a ND lean and all the sudden people feel the need to publicly bash Anzalone and, although just a week ago when everyone was so interested in Anzalone's recruitment due to the high marks he gave his PSU visit, now everyone can't stand his recruitment and wants it to be over.
Pretty interesting dynamics how people enjoyed the "circus" as recent as a week ago and now they can't stand it anymore. I wonder why that is?
Well, sorry but I don't post on message boards on behalf of Alex Anzalone. I post on behalf of myself.
Standard, huh? Well I don't recall similar recruitments for these guys:
I agree. I guess part of the reason why for some the Anzalone recruitment feels a bit over the top is because of the non-stop media coverage nowadays with twitter, the various recruiting websites, text messaging, etc.
Anzalone is going to have his recruitment done with in early July, a full 7 months or so before NSD. This has been far from drawn out.

Two words: Jordan Kerner.
There is more to life, or there should be, than football. Even for these kids. AA seems to get that. IMO, you can never knock a kid for picking a "better" school. Good luck to the kid. But I think he's destined for one of the NCAA commercials that state "most student-athletes end up turning professional in something other than sports."

“We need to keep this (expletive) together,” Mauti and Zordich to Hill
Shocking he's making a grandstand announcement at the opening. And I've felt this way a long time ago.
Hah. Who hasn't woken up net to the hot girl who turned out to be guano-crazy the next day? #WalkofShame
When is the last time a player hyped up his impending announcement for weeks stringing the media and message boards along and ultimately picked Penn State?
How about, never? Penn State kids don't announce like that. Notre Dame kids do it all the time. I'm surprised he's not rolling up to the college football hall of fame in a stretch limo.
Really, weeks! I think maybe AB this year!
Stop ... I'm pretty certain either way, people would be sick of the circus.
Remember Jimmy Clausen? I think he did the exact thing, it was sickening.
Awww poor Jimmy lol Still remember thrashing him... My first big game watched at the Beav.
WE ARE! And we will always be...
Who was worse: Jimmy Clausen or Tate Forcier?
Clausen without question to me.
This and it isn't even close. Anyone who thinks otherwise needs to go back and check.
Seriously? Isn't one of them making millions in the NFL?
Edit: are you talking about their announcements?
I'm referring to their recruitment, not their talent.
Announcements, but Clause also is a bum. He makes a lot of money but he did nothing relevant in the sport.
How about Davonte Neal last year? He didn't even show up to his own press conference to announce for ND.
Again, why I think ND is set to implode. Their locker room is a joke. And don't forget about the QB from last cycle...
