I was just going off what RA said a week or so ago that one of our coaches contacted Penn St. and asked permission to speak with one of their OL's. The Kid is from Tx.
That would be nice getting a kid from Penn State that could fill in. One of the more attractive things about recruiting is the icing on the cake of playing in big post season games.

The kids at Penn State won't get that opportunity for quite some time and Gundy has oSu positioned for a run at the conference and possible national championship if the QB and WR positions are running at expected levels.

I think you can agree that this is not a "good thing" reguardless of how you slice it. Left tackle...it hurts pretty bad. If the guy who steps in is not as good, our offense will not be as efficient. That position is a differance maker.
Like I said, it's certainly not a good thing for this season, but if you're like me, and think this season may be a bit of a bumpy road regardless, there's a bright side to getting a redshirt freshman a whole season of starting reps.

We're now going to be a lot better at left tackle in 2013, which is the year it will really count.

Yes. OSU first, Wazzu second..

What's wrong with having a hard-on for one of the greatest offensive minds to grace da erf?

No. Absolutely not. Manny Diaz? Yes. What's wrong with having a hard-on for one of the better on-the-rise defensive coordinators?

Come at me.
I hope you aren't serious about becoming a coach, because years from now prospective employers will read this post and say, "nope, not interested. Remember Sandusky?

True that. Hate to lose Michael Bowie as a player but Devin Davis can play. I'm just unsure of who is behind Davis. Koenig is a backup at RT and can play, maybe he could back up both spots now.
From what I've read Koenig is a future star, very highly regarded, so I wouldn't be too concerned. For Davis and Koenig the future is now. I like Mike's discipline policy, screw up enough and you're history and I suspect we will applaud this move probably this year.

I do expect a bumpy road compared to last season, but not a throw away season by any means.

If the sunshine I read about Devin Davis is true, he is/was going to get some PT reguardless.
