Two years ago under O'Brian Hackenberg was a star on the rise and now he looks completely lost. It's clear that Franklin is trying to force his spread system on players that were recruited to play a pro style system and it is failing miserably, 10 sacks ridiculous  . If you get a new coach you should be able to transfer to another school, the players shouldn't be punished for coaching changes and poor system fits.

I can only hope..... :devil:

 

Rich and Lori aren't going to like that....... but Paterno progeny Al Golden is doing his best to ruin my Hurricanes and I will never forget that fiasco championship loss to the vastly inferior Penn State team.

 

Now need to get some Penn State guys infiltrated at Ohio State STAT! :devil:  :thumbsup:

Temple stuck it to them. Never a bad thing to see PU lose.

Hackenburg was horrible today. I am not against him slipping because whilst I am not totally sold I wouldn't at this stage mind the Bills taking him and sitting him for a year or two and developing him. Way he played tonight he might well slip out of the 1st if he comes out (he isn't a senior is he?)

Hack is a hack. Loved seeing Temple win.

Likely no one here was alive the last time this happened.

One other thing to add and it maybe goes to the point... Bill O'Brien mught be the guy who bucks the trend of Belichick's Patriots assistants sucking. I think he is a good coach and I am liking what I see of him on Hard Knocks.

haha I think he was given one of those assistant head coach titles. The funny thing is that he was hired to replace Mike Vrabel, who left to coach the Texans DL for Bill OBrien.

I haven't been following the C-Bus police blotter to see how much damage his recruits are doing..........is Urban's "heart" issue going to flare up again anytime soon? :devil:

 

If so I like LJ for HC and Franklin for OC.......if he can't get an 8 year extension at Penn State.

On the bright side Hackenberg has some impressive tape so NFL scouts know what he is. But you lose seasoning. If he has a respectable year. His stock will skyrocket because scouts will see him as a versatile player.

 

I cant blame Franklin though because he is good with the youngsters. Wait until he gets his system off the ground before you crucify him

The one rookie that imitated him at the rookie talent show was too funny!
