Some of you guys need to chill a bit. Seems like any mention by either a journalist hack or reputable source gets people panicked if anything negative is even insinuated. This game of reading into Tweets about what the kids are "really saying" is senseless. "Is AB really criticizing Redd with this quote?" Who cares? Maybe he likes the quote.
And rather than take 4th hand information about a recruit's commitment level just let it ride out. The kids say they are committed, are tight knit, and hang out together when away from the program. Take them at their word and be optimistic. None of the core guys have done anything to the contrary to doubt their commitment, but as soon as someone posts a rumor you throw all reason out the window. It's ridiculous. Besides, what are you gonna do if they do decommit? Bail on the team?
Being a fan is a roller coaster ride. Part of the fun of being a fan is riding those lows and those highs.
I prefer to think of our situation as jumping out of an airplane with a malfunctioning parachute.
The sky is falling!!!!
As much as I love Hackenburg and think that he's going to be a great QB, I'm not worried about BOB's ability to recruit QBs. If Hack leaves so be it, BOB will be still be able to tell some kid a year or 2 from now that he's worked w/ Tom Brady and that he knows how to get him to the NFL. Not saying it won't suck but I have faith BOB will be able to recruit QBs.
Dominate The State
I have a feeling this "reporter" was prodding Hack with difficult questions to get the answer he wanted.
"On paper they have nothing to play for– no bowl games, rankings, or championships– yet they play like they have everything on the line."
i.e. - "So if PSU goes 0-12 with horrible QB play this year would you consider looking around at other schools?"
exactly... pseudo-journalism at it's finest

Really enjoyed meeting and talking with President Erickson today. Great guy who's doing a great job during a tough time.

I agree with AB that these are, indeed, tough times.
Dorian Johnson is currently retweeting a whole bunch of PSU folks who are telling him they understand his decision but hope he reconsiders by February.
Instantly connect to what's most important to you. Follow your friends, experts, favorite celebrities, and breaking news.
Bunch of idiot PSU fans on there as well. I dont understand people who would go onto a 17 yr old kids twitter and bad mouth him.
I'd like to see a write-up about his decommitment. Any chance he will reconsider come February? I really thought he would be a solid commit. He alwasy seemed more interested in an education, tradition, and family more than a bowl game. Either way, I wish him the best. Seems like a classy kid. Seems like a PSU kid.

I honestly don't expect a decision until early next week, but it could potentially come sooner. Like always, I'll keep everyone informed.
Issah is basically down to #PSU or #Oregon. He needs to get away from the media and others and make the decision thats best for him.
Eh.....don't like the sounds of that.
At his size, he'd fit right into what Oregon likes to do on defense, and what they need to defend against Pac-12 offenses. They like to get speed out there - and for a LB he has a ton of it.
I'm not sure what Roof is going to want out of his backers, but normally he'd be a bit undersized for a Penn State linebacker. Oregon is tough to turn down here.

I need some Penn State followers now.. Where y'all hiding?

"People ask me why I stayed here so long, Look around, Look around, I stay here because I love you all" R.I.P. Joe - 12/21/1926-01/22/2012
Who is this?
One is Colin Bryant- PSU freshman runningback and the other is Zac Etheridge- PSU GA from Auburn.
Bryant is pretty young even for a freshman. I really like his higlights although I'd prefer seeing him at safety. He's a pretty good athlete. I guess with the depth at RB he's best left there for a while. Definitely a walkon I expect to see on the field some day.

In today's Penn State football news, SBNation reports that Christian Hackenberg has reached out to other schools and wonders if he will stick with the Nittany Lions in light of Dorian Johnson's decommitment.
