"On paper they have nothing to play for– no bowl games, rankings, or championships– yet they play like they have everything on the line."
No offense but if you didn't see Bradshaw and Johnson decommiting then you haven't been paying attention. Issah's next. Hack, AB, Sickels, Nelson and Mahon aren't going anywhere else, even if they're the only five in this class. While this is all just my opinion I feel strongly about it. We'll see I guess.
Yeah I meant to edit that after I saw the post.
I would'nt go that far, but this yr. and maybe next yr. is going to be hard to recruit top talent here to PSU,if these top recruits want to go somewhere else let them go it's there loss, they are not looking at the big picutre, and thats is the NFL,we have the best coaches to get them there,and you would be a fool not to see that.
Are you sure about that? Most internet sources are saying its the 2013 class.
and White_out the guys that sign February 2013 would have 1 bowl game without redshirting, its the new freshmen that just came in who won't see a bowl game w/o redshirting.

If opposing coaches get to Hack it will be by pointing out MSU and OSU's elite Dlines and that he doesn't have a blue chip OT protecting his blindside.
Just chiming in with an outsiders POV.. I sincerely hope that Hack sticks with you guys. I know he re-confirmed his commitment and whatnot but there is obviously a lot of time for that to change, and I'm sure you don't need me to tell you that. He is going to be a great college QB and IMO is the only piece that can keep you guys at a competitive level during the sanctions. As Peyton showed in Indy, a great QB can cover up a number of deficiencies in an offense. If Hack pans out the way I (and, like, all the recruiting services) expect him to, he has the potential to take some 3* WR recruits and make them household names. He will also draw some higher quality recruits to your program who otherwise wouldn't be, yada yada yada.
Point is, I do not want you guys to be a cakewalk. I want to see how successful Hack can be under BoB's offense, and I want you guys to be a threat every saturday.

Pretty sure, my source was our very own Andrew dzurita from twitter.
I posted a google doc the other day outlining the scenarios
If winning was easy even losers would do it.
D. Smith is a potential 1st round pick in a few years, and we have some good looking prospects still around. Both lines are places where transfers did not hurt us that bad (not sure about Nowicki's potential) yet.
It is my understanding in reviewing the language from the NCAA that the scholarship limit goes into effect with the 2013 class.
"Four-year reduction of grants-in-aid. For a period of four years commencing with the 2013-2014 academic year and expiring at the conclusion of the 2016-2017 academic year, the NCAA imposes a limit of 15 initial grants-in-aid (from a maximum of 25 allowed) and for a period of four years commencing with the 2014-2015 academic year and expiring at the conclusion of the 2017-2018 academic year a limit of 65 total grants-in-aid (from a maximum of 85 allowed) for football during each of those specified years. In the event the total number of grants-in-aid drops below 65, the University may award grants-in-aid to non-scholarship student-athletes who have been members of the football program as allowed under Bylaw 220.127.116.11.6."
The 2013-2014 academic year represents AB's class. So this coming class' limit would be 15.
Additionally,the bowl ban begins at the end of this season and expires when AB (if not redshirted) is a senior.
"Four-year postseason ban. The NCAA imposes a four-year postseason ban on participation in postseason play in the sport of football, beginning with the 2012-2013 academic year and expiring at the conclusion of the 2015-2016 academic year. Therefore, the University's football team shall end its 2012 season and each season through 2015 with the playing if its last regularly scheduled, in-season contest and shall not be eligible to participate in any postseason competition, including a conference championship, any bowl game, or any postseason playoff competition."

This is so true. People started to write Stanford off after Luck left, but after the haul they brought in on the O-Line, they are far from off the radar. And plus, right after Josh Garnett committed, BArry Sanders Jr committed. The O-Line classes put together at Michigan and Notre Dame in this class are along the same lines. Opening holes and protecting the QB are equally if not more important than those running through those holes or standing in the pocket of them. If forced to chose, I'll take a 5-star O-LIneman over a 5-Star RB anyday.
I hate to see see your program going through these rough times. I am a buckeyes fan but have always loved Joe Pa and the type of program he ran. In my book you guys still have the cleanist programs ever and I don't think a sick man like Sandusky has any barring on Joe Pa and Penn State Pride. Penn State will rise and make the Big Ten whole once again! If I wasn't wearing scarlet and grey on saturdays id have no problems wearing the Blue and white of THEE STATE COLLEGE
Recruiting scholarship limit is in effect for Class of 2013. It impacts those who start to receive aid for 2013-14 Academic year, hence the staff's attempts to tack on late 2012 guys and EE's.
i think he meant with johnson, he was answering my question...but i like your attitude, we'll be good without him
I believe this is correct.
And that is EXACTLY what I just read on espn... Don't know why I even look on that page... You would think I would have learned by now.
Not one word about Brandon Bell. At least as I skimmed over it... Didn't feel like reading it all...
This made me feel better when I got up this morning.
