    I do believe it should happen but also recognize that it won't because of money.

    The culture of doing/saying anything to protect the Penn State brand is irreparably toxic.

    The only school that's remotely close to Penn State is Baylor.

    Maybe he thinks Ohio State should be kicked out too?

    I personally think we should just shut it all down. Football is for barbarians.

    We do return everyone from our offensive 2-deep other than Tyler Johnson and Rodney Smith. Smith is replaced by a 1000 yard rusher. We do still return the B1G's best WR and Autman-Bell would probably be a known name in the B1G if not for Tyler. I would be disappointed if the offense didn't improve as our OL moves up from being mostly underclassmen. Defense does have bigger losses than the O.

    You lost your OC to Penn St right? That could cause some issues if you didn’t fill the position with a good coach. What’s your schedule look like next year because this years schedule wasn’t the best.
    I still think you guys will be good, just more questionable than if you returned your OC and more defensive starters.

    I’m not that positive in Iowa being able to beat you next year early on and on a Friday. Too many key pieces to replace, especially on defense.

    Our schedule:

    FAU (Thu)
    Tennessee Tech
    Iowa (Fri)
    BYU
    at Maryland
    at Wisconsin
    Michigan
    at Illinois
    at Michigan St.
    Purdue
    -Bye Week-
    Northwestern
    at Nebraska (Fri)

    A little bit tougher than last year's schedule, but still fairly manageable. We may not be huge favorites in a ton of Big Ten games, but I don't really see a sure loss, either.

    Ciarrocca is gone, which is a loss (especially with regards to QB development). We replaced him with Mike Sanford (was OC at Utah St. last year, was formerly an OC at Notre Dame before failing as a head coach at Western Kentucky). Our WR coach Matt Simon will also be a co-OC, and he was the one in control of the offense in the bowl game. The fanbase is more excited about Simon of the two (for what he's done as a WR coach as well as his one game trial in the Outback Bowl), while cautiously optimistic is probably the best way to describe how Gopher fans feel about Sanford.

    Yes, new OC which could definitely complicate improvement. Where I think the O could get a lot better is that we were so young (2 Jr, 2 So & Fr) on the OL last year and they really developed as the season progressed. If what they did against Auburn is what they are next year, the O should be pretty tough to defend and it will lighten the load for the D. Big ifs but it is the last image we saw.

    This spring will be interesting to see how teams are developing in the West. Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin all might start the year ranked.

    Nebraska has a very manageable first 7 games if they get past Purdue and Cincinnati, both at home.

    Purdue is interesting because how young they were in 2019, especially if Rondale Moore returns healthy. They had freshmen score every touchdown they had for a streak of 5-6 games in 2019 after Moore went down.

    I think I'm on the Purdue bandwagon for winning the west next year. They have a pretty manageable schedule next year with only a couple tough away games.

    That defense is fucking awful and I’m not sure if they have enough talent to get on the level where the offense can carry them.

    Gonna be a lot of 38-41 games.

    Yeah, unless their defense takes a 180, I can't see them doing better than 6-3 in the B1G.

    Indiana QB Peyton Ramsey officially entered the portal as a graduate transfer who can play immediately with one year of eligibility left.

    He has completed over 65% in three seasons and thrown for 1252, 2875, and 2454 freshman-junior.

    Indiana went with Penix last year, who got hurt and Ramsey replaced him.

    I always thought he was a decent QB, not an NFL guy, but could be dangerous in the right type of offense.

    I have no idea where he is looking, but Kentucky seems pretty desperate for a QB unless what they did with Bowden as an emergency is actually a plan for the future.

    Ramsey’s dad coaches Cincinnati Elder, which isn’t a bad program to have an in.

    Definitely. One of our strongest recruiters. Timing of this is tough too as a lot of vacancies have already been filled. That said, a lot of our sack and TFL production can’t against our weaker opponents and our line was never a strength in big games. So it’s one of those situations where we probably can’t make an equivalent hire in terms of talent but Spencer definitely left some things to be desired. Thankful for his time here
