This is the first one I could find, from this preseason. He had Rutgers ranked just behind Bama, LSU and USC coming into the season with Michigan at 5. Rutgers at 4 might actually be the worst he's had Rutgers in a long time.
Yeah and win or lose it was blame Joe and Jay and this person sucks and that person sucks. (Skip November till the hire because I can't fault anyone for any posts during that time)Then BOB got hired and he sucked too. Everyone else was high on him after his presser, but Sneaky said he hadn't coached a single game yet and we were crazy for thinking BOB would be a good hire. Well he's coached some games now, and I'd venture to say he doesn't suck......
Crow supper is ready and waiting....
I too appreciate his non homerism at times, but his criticisms' are usually over the top.
I still fail to see why everyone got a hard on over that press conference.
IMO because of the way he came across, he gave hope when there wasn't much.
I can tell you why I did. BOB was the first person to publicly say Joe's name since the night the BOT fired him. He paid Joe the respect he deserved when no one else would say his name. The second thing is that he announced he was keeping LJ. That was the first time I had hope since everything hit the fan.
Sneaky will definitely offer an opinion that can even irritate the fans who don't drink any of the PSU kool aid. I can't say I agree with a lot of the things he says (and don't get me started on his political views), but he is a huge PSU guy who sees things differently (more negatively) from most of us.
I wish he'd post more again. I'm guessing he's been pleasantly surprised by the turn around (and was probably infuriated by week 2 of the season), but is waiting to see more to give a full judgment to BOB, which I am as well. I'm sure most don't like his style, and I see why, but I like hearing a genuine opinion that's different from most others than reading the same things over and over and over and over again.
Well yeah, I know that. But honestly it never seemed that great. He got up, answered the questions, and spoke like a man. Good PC, but not enough for people to swoon the way they did.
Not that I didn't dislike it, but wow was there over reaction like a mother.
I agree. Nailing an opening PC is somewhat meaningless and not too difficult (I said that a few times right after). Although, at the time, many were just looking for something positive to latch onto, and even something little meant a whole lot to them.
When everyone had been kicked in nuts 1000 times he picked us up, when nobody else would. I think that earned him a lot of respect. So many other coaches wouldn't have even thought about touching this job.
This board overreacts positively and negatively to every little thing. As do all of the other boards with lots of posters. You know that.
That's true, I'm going to text sneaky now since I haven't had a negative text messge in awhile. Maybe he'll call me an immoral liberal again. Hehe
He got the immoral part right at least.
To be fair, its amoral in most cases. Im not there to be nice or mean, just want the #'s and $'s to add up.
...and one last time, for good measure.

"PSU a 3 to 4 win team" - New-era, September 2012
I can't believe new-era got it wrong.
Ha, never too late to bring this back.
Can't wait to read his next "post".
I'd like to pin a thread with new-era's and Spulv's greatest quotes.
“We need to keep this (expletive) together,” Mauti and Zordich to Hill
I 2nd that.
How many ranked teams did PSU beat?
Pitt beat more!
Who said early on ND would play for the NC? I Did!
So hate on haters!
How many FCS teams did Penn State lose to? Pitt lost to more!
I'm sure it must be nice to have your favorite team in the MNC.
(deep breath in)
Anyone with even the slightest knowledge of football knows ND doesn't belong there. They would have 3+ losses with evenly officiated games. I think even you know that.
Alabama is going to make sauce out of them.
Serious question, do you think they win it?
