On Saturday, Penn State football concluded its spring season with the 2022 Blue-White Game. Since then, film analyst Thomas Frank Carr has been reviewing the film and takes you in-depth into one throw for each quarterback during the Blue-White Game to give you a sense of what they accomplished during the scrimmage.  This video is free to YouTube fans, but check out his extended breakdown of each quarterback to see the complete picture.  Not a member of Blue-White Illustrated? Join for just one dollar and get access to premium content.  Penn State quarterback evaluation from the Blue-White Game T-Frank starts with the Nittany Lion's starting quarterback, Sean Clifford. The sixth-year senior didn't have much to do throughout the afternoon, with plenty of pre-determined reads, but T-Frank takes you through one play that he feels indicates Clifford's comfort and poise in the offense. How has he progressed in the second season under offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich? T-Frank breaks down a play from the first half that shows his ability to read the defense and make a decision quickly.  Next, he moves on to quarterback Christian Veilleux. It seemed that the redshirt freshman quarterback was off on his deep passing attempts on several plays. But, according to T-Frank, what looks like an errant ball is something else entirely. He breaks down the play and tries to find which party is to blame for miscommunication in the attempt. This play also provides insight into first-year defensive coordiantor Manny Diaz's scheme.  After that, T-Frank pulls up a play for freshman quarterback Drew Allar. On Saturday, the five-star looked shaky and unsure of himself, missing receivers and having erratic accuracy. Was that indeed the case? T-Frank doesn't think so and explains what Allar was trying to do and why he looked so off.  Finally, it's time to examine quarterback Beau Pribula. The second freshman quarterback impressed T-Frank with one throw that showed all of his skills in an effortless deep ball completion.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Of the topics he discussed, Bauer brings up his conversation about the Penn State defense and how much of a task it would be to learn the new system under first-year defensive coordinator Manny Diaz. So how has that gone this spring? Next, Bauer explains what Franklin had to say. T-Fank comments on how that conversation has changed this offseason from Franklin's first comment to now. Finally, they discuss how learning a new defense has held back discussions about leadership on the defensive side of the ball. Next, They move on to Franklin's comments about the offensive line. The head coach was more open about the injuries that his front five suffered this spring and who has been able to play. First, Bauer and T-Frank discuss the names he mentioned to set the stage. Next, they discuss how that has impacted the group before T-Frank says how the Nittany Lions dodged a bullet with the players that did stay healthy. Finally, Bauer discusses what Franklin said about the running back room. Specifically, Bauer mentions how Franklin described the effect of freshmen Nick Singleton and Kaytron Allen on the group. From there, they dive into the BWI Mailbag to answer your questions. They start with Tim, who wants to know how good Penn State could be next season if they had four or five All-Big Ten Freshmen on the team. Next, t-Frank and Bauer spend quite a bit of time discussing which positions would make the most impact, which players are possibly a factor, and which jobs are not up for new blood. Finally, T-Frank tries to ascertain how much difference those players could make to the overall record.

Penn State cornerback Daequan Hardy and defensive end Nick Tarburton spoke with the media yesterday ahead of the team's annual Blue-White Game. Host of the BWI Daily Edition, Thomas Frank Carr, and senior editor Nate Bauer, discuss their impressions ahead of the weekend. They start with slot corner Daequan Hardy. Hardy is quietly one of the best players on the team, but his role last season was surprisingly small. So does Hardy want that to change? T-Frank asked the redshirt junior that question on Tuesday, and he plays Hardy's answer on the show. First, they discuss Hardy's response and examine if his role can expand. Does he have the skills to play other positions? Once again, T-Frank picks Hardy's brain to find out what makes a good boundary corner, and then he and Bauer examine if Hardy has the physical and mental skills to execute that role. Next, the discussion about Hardy and his fit inside the new Manny Diaz defense expands to the rest of the secondary. While Hardy is one of the better coverage players, the system may use players differently. Is there more room for his role to grow naturally this year? Finally, T-Frank and Bauer discuss who will play behind linebacker Jonathan Sutherland and how that position impacts Hardy. Finally, they shift their attention to defensive end Nick Tarburton. The veteran defensive end dished some interesting information on several young players who have stood out this spring. You'll hear his comments on running back Nick Singleton, safety Zakee Wheatley, and fellow edge rusher Smith Vilbert. Additionally, Bauer recalls Tarburton's thoughts on offensive lineman Olu Fashanu, Caedan Wallace, and center Juice Scruggs. Tarburton has high praise for the offensive linemen and the running game so far this spring. Next, they dig into Tarburton's impact on the defense for the upcoming year. Despite gaining some critical help in the transfer portal, T-Frank explains why Tarburton needs to take a step as a pass rusher for the defense to succeed. Finally, they delve into how the other players at the defensive end position need to play a role next fall.

While things are still taking shape, we have a better sense of what Penn State's defense will look like under defensive coordinator Manny Diaz. The first-year Penn State coordinator spoke with the media last week, and the host of the BWI Daily Edition, Thomas Frank Carr, pieces together the clues to get a rough outline of some of the changes. He uses evidence from head coach James Franklin, Diaz, and linebacker Curtis Jacobs to build a sketch of the differences between the former Miami head coach and former Penn State defensive coordinator Brent Pry. To find the differences, T-Frank starts with the similarities. First, he recaps what Franklin said about Diaz during the winter and explains how both coaches come from similar backgrounds. Then, he allows Franklin to explain the differences that Diaz is bringing to Happy Valley. Next, T-Frank fills in the context of what Franklin said with some details and examples. Lastly, he leaves you with one element that might be noticeable when watching things this spring's Blue White Game. Next, he dips into the coverage aspect of defense by asking Diaz what sort of system he believes in. The Penn State explains what he believes in and leaves a big clue about what the Nittany Lions need to be successful next fall. This nugget leads to a discussion about the transfer portal and a common thread between the Miami defense in 2021 and Penn State's current squad. T-Frank thinks that one aspect of the defensive structure will dictate what sort of coordinator Diaz is on Saturdays. This thought brings him to starting linebacker Curtis Jacobs. How is the adjustment to the new defense going? Jacobs explains what it takes to get everyone on the same page. Next, T-Frank explains why Jacobs is a crucial player in the defense next fall. It's not just that he's the most experienced linebacker returning, but his skill set is essential for Diaz's defense to thrive. T-Frank details those skills and what will likely be asked of Jacobs next fall. Lastly, T-Frank takes all of that information and outlines what he expects the new defensive coordinator to be like next season. Will he be aggressive? How will he use his coverage players? While some information is yet to gather, T-Frank expects an aggressive and attacking defense.

The Penn State football team held an open practice on Wednesday night, of which BWI was present. Host Thomas Frank Carr and senior editor Nate Bauer discuss what they saw and more of what they heard from Penn State head coach James Franklin, defensive coordinator Manny Diaz, and linebacker Curtis Jacobs. They discuss that and then take viewers' questions on the BWI Daily mailbag edition. The first topic of conversation they start with is something asked by fans of the show that didn't make the mailbag. T-Frank and Bauer explain why there has been less talk and less evaluation of the Penn State offensive line this spring. Next, Bauer describes how the practice works and how the media is limited in some capacities by the setup in Holuba Hall. Next, they discuss the transfer portal's impact on college football rosters. It's a problem not just for Penn State but also for the rest of the country. They discuss how the offensive line has limited numbers this spring and how Penn State uses the portal to find defensive ends. Finally, T-Fanks points to immediate real-world ramifications of NIL and the transfer portal ono Penn State this spring. They discuss Penn State linebacker Curtis Jacobs's comments after practice and how he's adjusting to his new position as the Will linebacker. How has the transition gone? What is he looking for in his own game? Bauer had a chance to talk to him and gave his thoughts. Finally, they get to the viewer's questions in the BWI Mailbag. First, they discuss Penn State's linebacker situation and depth and contingency plans for injuries at key positions. Next, they discuss Franklin's comments about Hakeem Beamon from Wednesday and what they mean. Next, they have an extended conversation about the situation around guard Saleem Wormley. First, Bauer discusses how the media overlooked his injury last season and why that happened. Then, he discusses how big of an impact and how important of a player he could be for the Nittany Lions next season if he can return to his previous form. After a quick discussion about the Penn State basketball portal activity, T-Frank and Bauer discuss a long-held trope by a large section of the fanbase. Is James Franklin a great recruiter and an average coach? T-Frank challenges the notion not to defend Franklin but to deconstruct an either-or scenario that isn't realistic in college football. That conversation spins into several about philosophy, program structure, team building, and more.

The freshman-to-be sat down with host Thomas Frank Carr on the BWI Daily to talk about his game and preparation for the future.  The senior from La Salle College high school is the 128th player in the nation, according to On3, and was a force his senior season. So that's where T-Frank begins the interview, asking Carter about how he thinks his final year of high school football turned out.  From there, he turns his attention to the current Nittany Lions and asks Carter, who recently visited Penn State, what he thought of new defensive coordinator Manny Diaz. Carter gives a favorable impression of Diaz as a person and a coach. Next, T-Frank asks what sort of conversations Diaz and Carter have had, leading to Carter's thoughts about football and playing at Penn State.  That becomes a theme of the day for Carter.  After that, T-Frank dives into a conversation about Carter's game and what he saw on film from the Philadelphia-area native. Next, T-Frank explains to Carter how hard he thinks it is to play linebacker in modern football thanks to recent offensive innovations aimed at confusing linebackers. After that, he gives his opinion on just how good Carter was his senior year and asks what caused the lightbulb to come on for the promising junior his final year.  Carter takes T-Frank through his football journey and explains what led to a breakout senior season and why he's such a versatile player on the field. Next, they discuss what sort of linebacker Carter is and what he wants to be. So how important is communication to Carter?

Penn State football has a busy few days of recruiting in store as the BWI Daily Edition heads into the weekend. Recruiting insider Ryan Snyder joins the show to give you the important names and then update the top targets on defense for the Nittany Lions in 2023.  Before that, they start with a Class of 2023 target that announced his top 5 today. Running back prospect Treyaun Webb put Penn State in the final group of schools along with South Carolina, Tennessee, Baylor, and Florida. So, where does Penn State stand on that list? First, Snyder tells T-Frank and then discusses the other standout target that makes up Penn State's priority players at running back. Can they take two? T-Frank doesn't think so, which he explains later in the show.  Another critical factor for Webb is visiting Tennessee, which now has a very famous and dangerous NIL reputation. Will that sway his decision? T-Frank and Snyder discuss and then dig into the topic of NIL further. Finally, they discuss the potential ramifications of how NIL will shape the future and how it is changing things already.  Next, they break down the list of players visiting Penn State this weekend.  Some of the key names are 2024 quarterback prospect Michael Van Buren, 2025 athlete Aaron White, and 2023 running back prospect from Texas, Cameron Cook. Again, check out Snyder's article or watch the BWI Daily for the complete list.  After that, they discuss Snyder's hot boards for the defensive class of 2023. T-Frank wants to start at defensive tackle because it's a deep and talented group that includes Florida prospects Derrick LeBlanc and John Walker, IMG product Will Norman, and prize of the 2023 class DeMatha Catholic's Jason Moore.  Snyder breaks down where Penn State stands with those players, their recent activity, and a general sense he gets from them. From there, they discuss the equally deep defensive end class. T-Frank references the running back board when looking at the breadth and depth of the defensive line class this year and calls into question the idea of taking more than one runner. He also brings up two wildcards in the group to illustrate his point.  Next, they move on to linebacker and discuss the clear top targets for the Nittany Lions, Ta'Mere Robinson, and Tony Rojas. After that, there are three clear-cut middle linebacker prospects to Snyder. How does all of that fit into Manny Diaz's picture on defense? T-Frank and Snyder have an in-depth conversation about the group and how things can change either way for Penn State's recruiting linebackers.  Finally, they finish the show by discussing secondary recruits. T-Frank starts at safety because it ties in with the conversation about linebacker and brings up four-star prospect Cameron Seldon. How great of a fit is he in the current Penn State defense? Snyder goes even further to underscore Seldon's importance to the Nittany Lions. Safety is another deep group in general, but cornerback is not. See who and where the prospects for 2023 lie in that group.  JOIN Blue White Illustrated: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/join/?plan=annual SUBSCRIBE to Blue White Illustrated on YouTube and enable alerts - new highlights and videos uploaded regularly: https://www.youtube.com/c/bluewhiteillustratedvideo?sub_confirmation Bookmark our homepage: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/ Subscribe to BWI Magazine and Newsletters: http://bluewhiteonline.com Download our podcasts: https://cms.megaphone.fm/channel/LRL3155877513?selected=DSVV2664982394 Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BlueWhiteIllustrated/ Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/PennStateOn3 Sound effects obtained from https://www.zapsplat.com Learn more about your ad choices.

Penn State football is back for 15 practices, and it starts today. Penn State head coach James Franklin started things off with his annual spring practice press conference, live and in-person for the first time in two seasons. So, the BWI Daily Edition takes to the road for today. Host Thomas Frank Carr, reporter Greg Pickel, and senior editor Nate Bauer give you their thoughts of Franklin's comments from the field at Beaver Stadium. Note: The BWI Live show will recap the entire day's events tonight at 8:30. Tune into YouTube and join the show! Last week, Bauer was curious to know what the "vibe" of the spring would be. Every year, he says there is a feel to the team or an overarching message that usually responds somehow to the previous season. Did Bauer find that vibe from Franklin? He did, and he tells you what he thinks the team's personality and mindset are, coming off of a 7-6 season. Next, they transition to the offensive line and the situation with the five men up front for the Nittany Lions on offense. Pickel explains what he heard from Franklin, including guard Saleem Wormley and bringing up some player positions and notable availabilities. Finally, he puts Franklin's comments into perspective over the eight years of his tenure as head coach. From there, they discuss the quarterback situation. Franklin was asked point-blank how he will handle the pressures of having a five-star quarterback on the bench. Bauer gives his thoughts on the situation and how he doesn't think it's accurate to say that Clifford has never had competition for his job. Naturally, that conversation leads to Franklin's comments about the other early-enrollee players in the Class of 2022 and the transfers that are on campus. Pickel gives his thoughts on both groups and how they should be perceived this spring. Finally, they discuss the changes on defense with new defensive coordinator Manny Diaz. T-Frank breaks down what James Franklin said about Jonathan Sutherland's move to linebacker and how that changes the defense. Should Penn State fans be worried about only playing two linebackers? Bauer and T-Frank discuss.

Penn State has a new defensive coordinator in 2022, but what does that mean for the Nittany Lions? Head coach James Franklin has said that he chose Diaz because of his skill calling defensive plays and his similarity to former coordinator Brent Pry. But no two coaches are the same, so what are the differences? Host Thomas Frank Carr looks at that today on the BWI Daily Edition. This video is a complimentary piece to T-Frank's article from earlier in the day, detailing the most significant structural difference between Pry and Diaz. Check out that article below. Article: https://bit.ly/3qafzIa Instead, T-Frank focuses on the secondary differences between Diaz and Pry during this episode of the Daily Edition. These stylistic quirks make each coach who they are, but many different factors can alter them each season. Coverage The first, and most notable difference between the two coordinators, is the use of different coverage schemes. Of course, all defensive coordinators have crossover in terms of coverages used, but it's where they lean in their tendencies that make them different. T-Frank points to a very distinct split in this area between Penn State's former defensive boss and Diaz. Will that continue for Diaz in Happy Valley? T-Frank has his doubts and explains why. Because of Diaz's coverage preferences, the next difference from what Penn State fans know is the use of safeties by each coordinator. Pry and Diaz have had similar tendencies over time, but Diaz has recently diverted from that path and gone in a different direction. So how does he deploy those players? T-Frank explains how one part of coverage affects player usage in another. Blitzing Penn State is not necessarily getting a more aggressive play-caller in Manny Diaz, but T-Frank points to the 2021 season for the Miami Hurricanes as a blueprint for the Nittany Lions in 2022. So why does T-Frank think there is a similarity? He shows the differences last season and how that might affect the Nittany Lions next year. Finally, T-Frank explains different ways a defensive coordinator can dial up the pressure and what that means for the players involved. #PennState #NittanyLions JOIN Blue White Illustrated: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/join/?plan=annual SUBSCRIBE to Blue White Illustrated on YouTube and enable alerts - new highlights and videos uploaded regularly: https://www.youtube.com/c/bluewhiteillustratedvideo?sub_confirmation Bookmark our homepage: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/ Subscribe to BWI Magazine and Newsletters: http://bluewhiteonline.com Download our podcasts: https://cms.megaphone.fm/channel/LRL3155877513?selected=DSVV2664982394 Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BlueWhiteIllustrated/ Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/PennStateOn3 Sound effects obtained from https://www.zapsplat.com Learn more about your ad choices.

This week, Penn State football made some off-field additions to their coaching staff, with a former Nittany Lion legend headlining the group. This week, the all-time leading tackler in Penn State history, Dan Connor, joined the program as an off-field analyst. Former Temple running backs coach Gabe Infante and Manny Diaz assistant at Miami, Rick Lyster round out head coach James Franklin's latest acquisition of support staff this year.  That's where host Thomas Frank Carr and Senior Editor for Blue White Illustrated, Nate Bauer start. They examine each hire, starting with Connor. The emotional tie to the university is real, and Bauer thinks that Connor is an excellent fit after beginning his coaching career in high school in this current role. So what will he, Infante, and Lyster be doing? T-Frank lays out some of the essential functions that Penn State needs from their analysts and illuminates how they can add value in multiple ways outside of just x's and o's.  From there, they discuss Penn State's other job openings. The university posted a job for an analytics director this week, so T-Frank and Nate discuss the merits of the position and how valuable an in-house data scientist can be.  That conversation morphs into one about scheme, talent, and football tactics. T-Frank looks at the Penn State offense through the prism of analytics and explains football reasons why simply following the numbers doesn't work and why only relying on football information can leave you blind. Did Mike Yurcich want to run a specific type of scheme last season? Is that a helpful plan? Did he use it as much as he has in the past? T-Frank takes you through his evaluation of the Penn State offense this season and what you can find when looking at the data and applying football logic.  Next, he asks Nate the question, "What did you learn about football this year?" They discuss what lessons they picked up from their football viewing in 2021, and their answers might surprise you.  Finally, they wrap up discussing Penn State basketball, which takes on Michigan Tuesday night at the Bryce Jordan Center.  JOIN Blue White Illustrated: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/join/?plan=annual SUBSCRIBE to Blue White Illustrated on YouTube and enable alerts - new highlights and videos uploaded regularly: https://www.youtube.com/c/bluewhiteillustratedvideo?sub_confirmation Bookmark our homepage: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/ Subscribe to BWI Magazine and Newsletters: http://bluewhiteonline.com Download our podcasts: https://cms.megaphone.fm/channel/LRL3155877513?selected=DSVV2664982394 Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BlueWhiteIllustrated/ Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/PennStateOn3 Sound effects obtained from https://www.zapsplat.com Learn more about your ad choices.

On the 73rd episode of “Great Dane Nation,” Morten is joined by his Pro Football Hall of Fame brother and Baltimore Ravens legend Ed Reed (05:48 – 54:56). But first, he checks in with TommyFreezePops (Tom Carroll) for this week's edition of the “Opening Kick” (01:24 – 05:02). This week, Morten reflects on the divisional round, and how the unlikely heroes of the weekend deserve our respect and attention.We then move to our interview with Ed Reed, where he discusses a wide range of topics: the importance of playing multiple sports while growing up (06:33); why tackling has gotten worse across the sport in recent years (08:12); why his mentality on defense was always to put the ball in the end zone (09:41); the state of the Baltimore Ravens, and what he thinks of John Harbaugh's decisions to go-for-the-win vs. play-for-overtime in key games down the stretch (11:55); what “made it work” in 2012 that led Ed to his first and only Super Bowl ring (15:11); the importance of watching a ton of film, getting everyone on defense on the same page (17:54); the “simple” base defense that everyone on the Ravens had to know (19:42); the amazing 2001 Miami Hurricanes, and why he thinks the program was unable to sustain its excellence (22:34); why leadership matters, and why the Ravens' lack of playoff success since his core group left is a perfect example of that (26:30); what he thinks about Miami firing Manny Diaz, and why it's going to take a mentality shift from the players for Miami to get back to a dominant level on the national stage (28:17); why he thinks Trevon Diggs is the best defensive back in the NFL today, and why Jalen Ramsey is not at the top of his list (31:51); why he thinks analytics and rule changes are watering down the NFL product (33:22); “The Name Game,” featuring Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, Jonathan Ogden, Steve McNair, Justin Tucker, John Harbaugh, Sean Taylor and Rex Ryan (37:02); why his relationship with Coach Harbaugh almost made him want to leave Baltimore (37:57); why the Houston Texans are a horrible organization run by terrible people, and why that “old southern mentality” doesn't work anymore (42:46); his mentorship of Sean Taylor, and why he believes Taylor would have been a Hall of Famer (45:27); why he loved playing for Rex Ryan (47:38); and this week's listener question from Scott on Twitter – Who was the player he hated tackling the most during his NFL career? (49:35)We then take a few minutes to talk about the career of Sean Payton, as news broke of his retirement during the recording of our episode (54:56 – 59:45). Morten has been a friend of Coach Payton's for over 20 years, as they were together with the Giants when Sean was a young offensive coordinator in the early 2000s.Then we move to a special edition of “Morten's Fast 5,” where our Hall of Famer makes his picks for both the AFC and NFC Championship Games (01:01:03 – 01:09:10). Morten gives his picks for Bengals at Chiefs (01:03:25) and 49ers at Rams (01:06:09).Finally, we close things out with “Morten's Game Winner” – a weekly monologue from The Great Dane on his biggest takeaway of the week. This week, Morten talks about Ed Reed, and the “heartbeat within the lines” (01:09:10).

We're deep into the offseason for Penn State football, and there are some things we're not going to find out yet, if ever. That's what host Thomas Frank Carr has been thinking about and what he shares with you on the BWI Daily Edition. What will Penn State football look like next season with an offseason of changes behind them and more ahead? T-Frank has put together a list of five questions he wishes he had the truth about right now regarding the Penn State football team.  He starts at five and asks a question that he's posed many times on the show. How will Manny Diaz alter the Penn State defense? We know that head coach James Franklin went out to find a coach who runs a similar scheme, but subtle differences can change quite a bit. So he gets into some of his questions about how Diaz could put his stamp on Penn State's defense.  The next question deals with the hottest topic for Penn State fans; quarterback. No, not incoming freshmen Drew Allar or Beau Pribula. He looks squarely at redshirt freshman Christian Veilleux and wonders one particular question.  Third, on the list of questions, he wants answers about the health of two key players. Penn State's roster projections hinge on one defensive and one offensive lineman. Becuase Penn State doesn't divulge injury information, all timelines about a return to play are conjecture.  The second most important question that T-Frank would like answered is one he wants to know the most. How does the Nittany Lions staff feel about one of their starters from last season? Knowing their honest evaluation would give insight into how Penn State wants to build its line and how things could shake out next year.  Finally, the most critical question to which nobody knows the answer comes from the transfer portal. Will Penn State get more additions this spring? What positions will they play? Even the Nittany Lions staff don't know the answer, but it's the most critical factor in how next season will go.  JOIN Blue White Illustrated: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/join/?plan=annual SUBSCRIBE to Blue White Illustrated on YouTube and enable alerts - new highlights and videos uploaded regularly: https://www.youtube.com/c/bluewhiteillustratedvideo?sub_confirmation Bookmark our homepage: https://www.on3.com/teams/penn-state-nittany-lions/ Subscribe to BWI Magazine and Newsletters: http://bluewhiteonline.com Download our podcasts: https://bluewhiteillustrated.podbean.com/ Like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BlueWhiteIllustrated/ Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/PennStateOn3 Sound effects obtained from https://www.zapsplat.com Learn more about your ad choices.

Penn State football got a shot in the arm this week the safety Ji'Ayir Brown announcing that he is returning for his final season. But what does that mean for the Penn State defense? Besides getting back a veteran player, host Thomas Frank Carr breaks down what Penn State can do with Brown in their defensive system next season.  First, T-Frank looks at what Brown wants out of his final season at Penn State. He asked the safety what he would come back for if the Lackawanna transfer stayed and where he wanted to improve his game. Brown had a precise answer and has one particular stat the senior would like to accumulate next season. That answer gives T-Frank a clue as to Brown's expectations and where he will need to play within the scheme to accomplish that.  The next element to consider with Brown's return to Happy Valley is the players surrounding him in the defense. So, who is the likely candidate to start opposite of Brown? The obvious answer is his backup, Keaton Ellis. How has the transition from corner gone for Ellis? Both Brown and the former State College Little Lion weigh in. The other player to consider is freshman standout Jaylen Reed, who worked his way onto the field late in the season. T-Frank looks at each player's strengths and explains how he sees all of the pieces fitting together.  Finally, T-Frank explains how new defensive coordinator Manny Diaz could change the picture with his defensive style. With that in mind, T-Frank explains what he saw from the Miami defense under Diaz and the type of players and body types that Diaz used at each position. With the similarities in the scheme, it's easy to make. Despite that, T-Frank isn't sure that the new defensive coordinator will bring a carbon copy of his old principles to Penn State.  He wraps up the show, evaluating where Penn State's safety room stands heading into the offseason.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Senior Editor for Blue White Illustrated Nate Bauer and host of the BWI Daily Edition, Thomas Frank Carr, were on hand to take in the sights and sounds. They bring you their observations on today's show.  First, they start with the biggest news of the day, introducing new defensive coordinator Manny Diaz. Bauer and T-Frank discuss their initial impressions of Diaz, his comments and responses to tough questions about his previous job, and his fit at Penn State. The two discuss how Diaz echoed similar but unrelated sentiments to what Head Coach James Franklin said earlier in the day.  Next, the pair gave their thoughts on what Offensive Coordinator Mike Yurcich had to say about his side of the ball in 2021. First, Yurcich took ownership of the situation and answered questions about the running game, his system, and more. Next, T-Frank and Bauer talked about the moments that stood out to them, including an illuminating answers at the end of the press conference.  Bauer and T-Frank dove into the quarterback conversation and what sixth-year senior Sean Clifford can provide for the young players that just joined his room in five-star quarterback Drew Allar and three-star Beau Pribula. How can Clifford help bridge the gap beyond his play? Can the embattled signal-caller raise his game with one final year at Penn State? Bauer and T-Frank discuss that and more.  Finally, they share the interesting conversations they had with individual players throughout the day with the audience. Those players include running back Noah Cain, right tackle Caedan Wallace, and safeties Keaton Ellis and Ji'Ayir Brown.  Cain discussed his health in 2021 and the issues in the running game that held the Penn State offense back. Were there issues that went deeper than just missed blocks or wrong reads? Bauer reads between the lines with Cain's answer to try and find the truth. Meanwhile, Wallace discussed his development at right tackle and some of the offensive line's struggles in 2021. He also gave an unexpected answer to a question that raised T-Frank's attention.  They wrap up with a discussion about the fixes in the future for the offense.  Learn more about your ad choices.

After every week of action, we will get you caught up on all the conference's games and look ahead at the matchups, storylines, and players that you should be paying attention to in the next week. My name is Jordan Williams, and I am joined by my co-host Dante Morgan. In this episode Dante and Jordan get a jump start on the off-season conversation. What are the initial thoughts from the season? This season had to most parity we've seen in a long time, our pre-season picks were way wrong, and how much did super seniors affect the results. Will there be more parity next season or is Ohio State going to win it all again with a more experienced roster? Ohio State and Penn State both make flashy defensive coordinator hires with Jim Knowles from Oklahoma State and Manny Diaz from Miami respectively. The boys get to live react to Quinn Ewers transferring to Texas and try to figure out where Adrian Martinez and Michael Penix Jr. play next season. Also, we send a major congrats to Aidan Hutchinson and C.J. Stroud for being Heisman Finalist. In their weekly pit stops they take a moment to honor Demaryius Thomas who tragically passed away at 33 years old. We're sending thoughts and prayers out to his loved ones as they grieve the loss of an amazing human being.  Connect with us on Twitter: Jordan: @JordanW330 Dante: @DanteM10216 Learn more about your ad choices.

If you like pets interrupting your podcast listening, this is the episode for you! It's a real quick Duke recap so Mama Hayes and I can get into the big news around the University of Miami football team. We look back at the Manny Diaz era, what went right and what could've been. We talk about Mario Cristobal coming back to the Canes (don't tell him he was Mom's second choice) and the Dan Radakovich hire as the Athletic Director. Go Canes!
