What a fuckin' game....Penn State wins in on a walkoff TD pass. Trace McSorley is a fuckin' winner!! Would love to see Steelers get him AND Sequeon Barkley

I'll pass on McSorely, but Barkley has NO weaknesses. None. Seriously. Find me one. Including character. What a game.

I'd take Marcus Allen at safety too.


Might be an all time high for the surrender cobra in the Iowa stands after that catch!

He's Leveon without the knuckleheadedness.

Stronger and faster than Bell. Vision might give Bell the edge.

Barkley is not as strong in Pass Pro as Bell. Barkley is capable of being such but has lapses in that area. I think that is his one and only weakness.
Kid is a pure stud though.

McSorley is going to end up being a WR in the NFL if he can make it. Another one of those slippery WR's the Patriots love.

Kirk Ferentz doing his best Mike Tomilin with those 2 point attempts in the fourth quarter. He did not maximize his teams chances for victory. That was an amazing game though.

I don't follow closely enough, but.....
*Dude's a winner
*Dude seems to throw a good deep ball
*Winning TD last night.....that was a PERFECT fuckin' pass....reminiscent of Ben to Santonio in the SB. How the fuck does he get that pass over #27....three receivers....and defenders, in that area.

The two point try was the exact right call to make there. There was no difference between 19-15 and 20-15, but make it 21-15, and Penn State has to make the XP to win the game.

Yes- they probably do make that extra point, but it's the difference between 100% chance of victory with a TD and 90+% chance.

That was a perfect pass, but McSorley actually was playing a pretty piss-poor game up to that final drive.

He must have been telegraphing something- about a half dozen passes batted down last night.

BTW, I don't want to imagine how I would have felt had Penn State lost last night AND I had to endure the shiftiest today.

McSorely has zero NFL future. He's a less talented version of Johnny Manziel. He's an exciting college player for sure.

Saquon Barkley is the best RB on the planet including everyone in the NFL. He's like a 230 pound Reggie Bush. 4.3 speed with insane lateral ability and deadly in the open field, good hands, work horse.

I'd like to scoff and tell you that you're crazy, but...

Look up the word "stud" in the dictionary, and you'll find a pic of Saquon Barkley...
Best collegiate RB I've seen in...

EVER!!!

Marcus Allen I assume you mean. Smart, leader, hard hitter, very solid tackler. Speed, range, and ball skills are all ok. Mid round player, I think he'll be a solid starter in the NFL.
