    New coaching staff, no spring practice to speak of, and Travis missed a lot of preseason camp. It's obvious enough now, but I suppose they do need to see the guy play a little bit first.

    As for the mobile QB issue, Norvell's offense worked fine without one at Memphis. It's a mix of pro and spread concepts. But all things being equal, a QB who can run makes a lot of things easier. I think Travis is average at best as a passer, but if he can just hit the wide-open guys and move the chains now and then with his legs, that's a lot better than we've been getting in recent years.

    The Athletic is reporting that Penn State starting RB Journey Brown may be out for the entire season with an undisclosed medical condition discovered in the offseason.

    yeah, I have seen a lot of activity online over the last 48 hours kind of rewriting the history of Travis....as in everyone knew he would be good if given the chance. Jordan Travis was low 3 Star recruit out of college...and not even a Top 100 guy within the state of FL. None of that means he will not excel at FSU, but I am not buy that everyone expected him to come in and play great that claimed so on Sunday morning. I just knew they had to try something besides Blackman, but I had no idea how the backup would play. The real difference was Travis was mobile and Blackman was not which allowed some plays to be short gains instead of the normal TFL or interception from Blackman.

    The problem with the programs at Nebraska and Tennessee is neither has been able to find a head coach worth anything. At least not one of the likes of an Osbourne or Fulmer.

    Big loss. If he's out and with Parsons out, they've lost the best players on each side of the ball they expected to have back.

    Add to it, the Huskers switched conferences. Miami and Florida St. joined conferences. Seems that Penn St. hardly skipped a beat even with the chomo stuff.

    how does switching conferences impact the situation? Florida State joined the ACC almost 30 years ago right at the time they were solidifying themselves as a national power.

    The mods figured out that SeaRay was Q. So of COURSE he had to be censored.

    It is a 100% echo chamber that lacks tolerance at a near child like level, but I have not encountered moderators trying to silence opposing views. The moderators are part of the echo chamber, but that is not actively silencing other views. If you find an online forum with anything that resembles equal numbers of partisan users, it will be the first that I am aware of....the majority always turns it into an echo chamber on both sides.

    The mods won't discuss it, but that's absolutely not what happened. And SR left on his own accord.

    This is not the place for this discussion, but this needs to be responded to. He was not censored, and I'm really not sure where you got that idea. You can PM me if you'd like to further discuss.
