Although the good quarterbacks at Penn State have outweighed the good in the past few years (Michael Robinson and Darryl Clark get the thumbs up, Antony Morelli gets the thumbs down), 2010's Rob Bolden/Matt McGloin combination wasn't fun and neared on disaster on many an occasion, culminating in humiliating losses to Florida and Ohio State.
Now, we've got a choice: Rob Bolden (who wanted to leave but got stopped doing so), Paul Jones (who's got a cannon and there's a camp who'd LOVE to see him start), and McGloin (who apparently's got some 'moxie', but also loves throwing it to opposition secondaries at inopportune moments). Frankly, I'd love to see them all do well on Saturday, but in reality, McGloin's in prime spot.
But there are other worries. The defensive line (Massaro, Crawford both out) is shot to pieces by injury, and the Nittany Lions don't have a tight end to speak of, either. And let's not also forget injuries to speedster Curtis Drake, who everyone thought/hoped/prayed would be big-time this year.
Oh, and there's the young offensive line who actually might change the life of a college in the last couple of seasons by actually being able to stop a pass rush (or is that a little tough?)
And we'd love a kicker.
Listen, there are things I'm excited about.
