    #Indiana Hoosiers Is Penix 100%? Last rumor I read was this might be his first real contact since the injury. Looking forward to a good game. Our offense is going to have to carry us the first two games till our Dline finds its way.

    Yes, in that the injury is fully healed but this will be his first "real contact" as well given it's his first game back. Does anyone allow their starting QB to take contact in practice or camp?

    I meant more along the lines of going 100% and maybe being bumped and pushed around. Quick change of direction.

    Many prominent people are saying Kenneth Walker = Leveon Bell (who was a two star).

    my big takeaway from the first half is laughing at Corch for accusing PSU fans of sandbagging.

    Yep, they are very very good up front. You need someone to take the top off to keep them honest.

    He overthrew the would-be 88 yarder in the first half and now he is just under throwing to give his WR a chance.

    How do you call that targeting and don’t call the Ransom hit on Brown-Stephens targeting? What is the booth even doing in this league?

    In a silo that was textbook, lowering the crown of the helmet and launching

    If the QB has the sideline and doesn’t take it, the def shouldn’t be flagged for teeing off on him tho

    Jim Leonhard is way too good of a DC to waste with your guys' vanilla offense.

    PC refuses to make adjustments, gets softball questions from the media after terrible loses like this, didn't promote Bostad to OL coach and gave it to his pal Rudolph, is supposedly a QB whisperer, calls extremely vanilla games (1-2 jet sweeps, runs up the middle on first and second, had RBs who are great in the pass and doesn't use them, plays Mertz under center until the last drive), etc etc. Offense is stale and archaic.

    Some point in that game a backup QB should've been considered. Mertz didn't impress in camp, while Wolf at least made the throws and didn't make mistakes.

    Also isn't Leonhard just expected to be a Wisconsin lifer.
