In my 35+ years following Penn State football, I have never seen the kind of development in one year that we've seen with Matt McGloin. It was a " perfect storm" with him being a 5th year senior and with Bill O'Brien arriving. Both have obviously come together in an unbelievable way. I expected improvement, but this is a metamorphosis of major proportions. I have been very critical of Matt in the past, and I believe deservedly so. And I didn't believe he could be a legitimate Div-1a QB. But I was wrong. Dead wrong. Normally I would say "let's see how he does next Saturday". But I believe he will do well and can't wait to be screaming in support from section EGU !!!
Your opening sentence was very 'Phil Grosz'-esque but ya I agree with you. What Bill O'Brien has done with Matt McGloin in such a short period of time is pretty remarkable. Imagine how good Hackenberg could be with 4-5 years of coaching at Penn State.
And on a side note, how weird does it feel to point out that QB development is one of the strong areas of the PSU football program? That couldn't be further from the truth with the previous regime.
This offense, or maybe it's better to say - the portions of this offense that have been employed - are a near perfect compliment to what Matt can do. And more importantly, what he can't do. This is where O'Brien has really shown his expertise. He knows the kind of QB has has, and he knows what to trim out of his total package in order for his QB to excel. It helps when his scheme includes so much focus on the TE, because its obviously been a key in Matt's success. It's smart coaching. And I agree with you fully - can't wait to see what opens up when a different kind of QB - in Hackenberg - is behind center. He can do some different things, and it will be really interesting to see what parts of the offense are added back in. We actually have the weapons to take advantage of what McGloin has to offer, as well as what Hackenberg will be able to add. Just imagine the numbers ARob, Kyle Carter, Jesse James will continue to put up...and then add Breneman into the mix...... We are on a good path, there is no question about it!
I'll be looking for you next Saturday from across the field in section WF. Look for me, I'll be wearing white!
October 12, 2013. PSU 43 - UM 40 (4 OT). Unfortunately this fan wasn't around long enough to see it!
I'll wave to ya' !!
Or - better yet - maybe share a beer at the 247 tailgate.... You going?
Depends on if I have to walk 3 mi. to find it! ;)
Don't forget Charlie Fisher. The guy did have a hand in Cutler's development at Vandy, after all.
“We’re doing things we couldn’t imagine,” says safety Stephen Obeng-Agyapong. “But we’re doing them together.”
Its less than .2 miles from the stadium. If ya walk anywhere close to 3 miles, you should have gotten a map before coming to State College to begin with haha
