I will disagree with that. Our situation obviously changed mid-year with the PJ decision. Who's to say that BOB wouldn't have been recruiting Waters for a year now if he knew he'd only have two QB's on his roster next season.
So does this mean that a kid who blows up his senior year of HS should commit to the MAC school who offered him first, or the BCS school that offered in November? You have to do what's best for you, but not from a sense of loyalty to the first one you talked to.
"A lion does not concern himself with the opinions of the sheep"- Glenn Carson
Yeah. I dont care I also hope he sucks there.
Academics made him choose K-State?
Lets go Bench.
Questioning his decision is not "acting like children."
About the only "pros" of K-state over PSU are they started recruiting him first, and they can go to a crappy bowl.
Penn State offers a clearer path to the starting job, a clearer path to the NFL, and academics that are LIGHT YEARS ahead of K-state.
Given that, you don't think we can reasonably discuss why he made the choice he made without you thinking it's "acting like children?"
Get over yourself, dude.
Guys, keep in mind that not everything is based solely on logic. Sometimes kids visit a campus and they get a great feeling about it. I've been in that situation before and even though I grew up loving PSU, it just wasn't the right college for me and chose to go elsewhere.
Wonder if KSU still recruits that other JUCO QB?
I hope they do. That would be so hilarious to me.

wherever you went, I hope you sucked.

I didn't want his stupid rose anyway. *bawls*

Remember how mad some people were when we missed on Danny O'Brien? Team Bench/Hack! May the best man win the job.
Good luck to him.
We need depth at QB, but IMO, I wasn't impressed after watching the NJCAA NC game.
I don't know why, but he reminded me of McGloin.
Same here. Loved PSU - everything about it, but chose another school that I felt was better for me, a smaller one farther away from home.
I'd like to hear from some of the supposed "insider/experts" who thought PSU was sitting pretty. I mean I thought that's why I paid money to this site?
Dominate The State
If winning was easy even losers would do it.
"On paper they have nothing to play for– no bowl games, rankings, or championships– yet they play like they have everything on the line."
This whole bullshit about "God told me" is hillarious.
So Jake is to believe that instead of telling someone how to create completely green, clean free and unlimited energy... he instead chose to tell this kid where to play football.
That excuse makes me hope that God tells Snyder to keep Waters on the bench for the remainder of his career so Jake can find out just how usefull that K-State degree is compared to the one he would have gotten at PSU.
Goodness man, things change. Sean said he liked where PSU stood, but said they had to get past the KSU visit, which they obviously didn't. Even Waters admitted that he was leaning to PSU.
his gf is god apparently..
As far as I understand it, God can multitask.
Not to get preachy on spirituality, but praying on tough life decisions is important. it certainly doesn't hurt.
This one is a head scratcher for me.
Proximity to home
Opportunity to play in bowl games
First "Major" Program recruiting him
Girl who may or may not be involved w/him goes to KSU
KSU takes lots of JUCOS yearly.
KSU is less than stellar as an academic institution
Current offensive system is an extremely poor fit for him.
Coaching staff has zero track record of developing QB's for the next level,
Heisman Finalist Klein is being asked to workout as a WR or TE at All Star Games.
KSU gets a 10th of the national exposure of PSU.
A Top academic institution w/incredible resources that will prepare him for life after football.
A Pro style offense that runs completely through the QB. This offense is a dream come true for accurate QB's
A HC and QB Coach who have both groomed young QB's for success, and have proven their worth by turning a former walk on into an all conference performer.
A WIDE OPEN depth chart.
A young team with plenty to work with on offense.
Incredible program support, and national exposure.
Sanctions/No Bowl Games
Again a real head scratcher to me. I wish him well, but I don't see the logic in passing up what PSU could offer to get a shot at the Pinstripe Bowl or wherever else he will likely end up in his tenure in The Little Apple.
Well lots of people are getting hit with busses all the time and we still dont have that clean green free ulimited energy.
So hes doing a crappy job at multi-tasking.
u mad? read the first few pages, people are bashing the kid solely because he picked a different school.
holy hell, are you blind.
"he is going to take an absolute beating."
"hahahaha, what a joke. have fun playing in the wrong system."
"Well hope he sucks there"
"K State? Well, clearly he's NOT a "student first." LOL" -- just noticed you wrote this. this furthers what I originally wrote.
"Says he wants to be a student athlete first and that is why he is choosing Kansas State. HAHAHA! "
"To hear he was leaning PSU, then changed his mind at the last second makes me think someone talked him out of it."
Things you wrote
-"K State? Well, clearly he's NOT a "student first." LOL"
-Given that, you don't think we can reasonably discuss why he made the choice he made without you thinking it's "acting like children?"
contradict yourself much?
wow. so he's a nutjob.
Guys - He's probably not going to even start at K-State next year. They already have a HUGE QB competition between the top 2 guys on their roster. K-State sold him a bill of goods but they reality is they already have two QBs who know the system and are already competing for the starting job.
