But as Franklin confirmed Tuesday, the chart only reflects the situation from the past game and isn’t indicative of who might suit up against Indiana. The longer answer – Sudfeld hopes so.
Franklin said how Barkley – and other injured players respond to treatment in the coming days – will determine whether or not he and others play Saturday afternoon against Indiana. Northwestern is 10-5 overall with a an identical 2-2 record against the Big Ten, entering Saturday’s match having also dropped its last two matches to Wisconsin and Minnesota. He originally hurt it the previous week at Wake Forest.
The Buckeyes managed 105 yards in the second half, including just 54 yards and two first downs in the final quarter of play. Those fans helped us. Can he also be put in a proper position? “You can’t control the fact that the lights weren’t on, it’s the way it goes”. This one is big.
“I got the ball on the right side of the field”, Sa said.
“They’re going to load the box up”, Franklin said. “Like Marcus Allen? Yeah”, Franklin said. “How do you go out and get people really excited about the season, about the team and about the future without setting up false expectations at a place that no matter what has happened, the day the season starts everybody remembers 1982 and 1986 and that’s their expectation?”It’s the thing that I probably love the most about Penn State”. Don’t get me wrong – Zettel is a terrific player and, despite an increase of double-teams he’s faced this season, has still been productive. “I was telling him I was fine”. “I get that you guys gotta do your job”. Wilson, anxious about Sudfeld’s lack of mobility and pleased with Diamont’s success, chose to stay with Diamont. Four of their five leading tacklers in the game Saturday are sophomores or younger.
“It makes me be able to fight through it and deal with it better”. “Zander gives us more of an athletic threat at quarterback”, offensive coordinator Kevin Johns said. Kick returner Koa Farmer and Nick Scott and punt returner DeAndre Thompkins have been explosive but haven’t gotten too many chances. Previous year we had to limit the offense with him. “The delay, everything was just kind of … it makes it hard to swallow”. Sophomore Simmie Cobbs, Jr.is another excellent target who can use his size to create mismatches, especially in man coverage. Simmie Cobbs added 68 receiving yards on four receptions.
Barkley, however, did not play last week due to an ankle injury, and no timetable has been given for his return. He’s second in the Big Ten in rushing with 709 yards. For the season, he has gained 116 yards on eight carries (14.5 ypc). That’s how I envision this team playing.
Saturday’s opponent, Indiana, is not one of them. In a week? In two weeks?
“Do we need to get better on offense?” At that point, Penn State president Eric Barron was forced to backpedal and issue a press release in which he rescinded the invitation to Heim, saying that it “has reopened deep wounds in our community that do not involve his service to country, but have distracted the public from the objective of the day”.
Junior libero Justine Wong-Orantes was named co-defensive player of the week by the Big Ten for her performances over the weekend. “I’ve seen a lot of insane things, but that’s a first for me with this delay and the power outage and everything”.
Indiana took one step forward when they defeated Wake Forest on the road, but Penn State presents a much tougher challenge. This season, they have just 46 receptions.
Few environments will ever compare to the one inside Beaver Stadium on October. 8, 2005 when the unbeaten and 16th-ranked Nittany Lions battled the sixth-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes in a primetime tilt of Big Ten heavyweights. They’ve won four in a row. We’ve also shown we don’t consistently move on.
“You talk about being more methodical; I think we need to be more aggressive at times, ” he said. We expect to play better, and we haven’t accomplished much yet. “They’re very good; they’re going to win a lot of matches and they’re going to be right in the hunt”.
