Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

There was a 3-way tie for Goober of the Year.

Mrs psu_dad: Time to let that go.
Me: I like saying goober.

A Terry Jacks biopic? A Terry Jacks tasering, that I could get behind.

Re: Movies

When are they going to make a movie about Sam the Sham & The Pharaohs? It's long overdue.

Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

Every time the market climbs a few percentage points, it subsequently gives it all back. Not to mention the bond market, which sucks right now. I rely on bond funds as a hedge on mutual (stock) funds, but that hasn't been working. The Barclays Aggregate Bond Index is down 2% for the year, as are my ...

Re: Wisky Thread

So calm down.

If I were any calmer, I'd be comatose. This is all just hypothetical shooting the breeze. And when/if push comes to shove, I doubt any of us will be consulted.

PS - I do like the post-game lap dance plan.

Re: Wisky Thread

I can see the argument regarding Franklin's salary, but unfortunately college HC salaries have reached Looney Tunes level. If you're the HC of a Top-10 caliber team these days, you're probably making a minimum of 5M per.

Re: Wisky Thread

It will be interesting. If a few years from now, Penn State ends up firing a guy who has been winning 9,10, or 11 games a year and finishing in or near the top-10 every year, they're probably going to take considerable grief from the national media. I can already see the headlines: "Who do they...

Re: Wisky Thread

College HC salaries have gone through the roof. Different sources report different numbers, but there's something like a half-dozen guys making 6M+ and another half-dozen making 5M+. It wasn't that long ago such a salary would have been large for an NFL coach.

Re: Wisky Thread

Near term? No. But let me play the Devil's Advocate. Suppose he continues on his current arc, i.e., he doesn't compete for a NC ... he competes for a B10 title occasionally ...he has a bad overall record against the iron of the B10... but they play in a respectable non-playoff bowl most years . Is t...

Re: Wisky Thread

I don't see how the above warrants firing, or even consideration of it. I suppose that depends on expectations. In 5 years, he hasn't yet established Penn State as a CFP-caliber team. If that's the goal, he's fallen short. If competing for a Big-10 title occasionally is enough, there's no reason to...
