"If Mahon, Nelson, Palmer play we beat USC going away."

If Brandon Bell doesn't get hurt, I think PSU wins by double figures even without those guys playing. The defense had just started to take control when he got hurt. I said to the people that were at the party I was attending that I wasn't sure we would stop them again once he left the field, and I'm not sure we did.

Terrible news today out of practice. John Reid probably out for season. For my money, our best player on defense and second best overall (after Saquon). We have depth at the position given recruiting classes of late, but a big blow. Good luck to him on the recovery

Not good news about Reid. Only positive I can say is that at least it wasn't a starting linebacker, can't afford to lose any of those.

That's a shame, John was a solid, key corner back locking down the opponents star receiver. The Lone Ranger goes down. Fortunately we are well stocked with defensive backs but not all of them are John Reid type players. Hope he recovers quickly.

Remains to be seen on the field, but most everyone is raving about the spring that Juwan Johnson is having.

In the "man I got old department" a legacy recruit is reported to be in attendance to B&W game - Curtis Enis' son - a WR recruit.

I actually met Enis after Fiesta Bowl game in mid 90s - I know he had an ugly departure from PSU and some a rough go in the NFL but I have to say we was certainly polite and respectful when I met him and in tremendous physical condition. IMO maybe a Top 5 PSU RB in my lifetime.

Curtis was a force of nature. I always thought Joe was overly tough on him. He was a poor kid, he was nominated for an award, and he took a suit from an agent. was it a dumb thing to do? I guess, but to basically throw him off the team for it seemed ... well, un-Joe like. Maybe Joe was trying to give him the push he needed to go pro. But, he was a great player for us.

He was ok with the Bears for a while, but he got hurt early in his career and just never was able to make it back. That happens. Glad that there are no hard feelings and he's willing to send his kid to Penn State. The incident with the suit aside, I think he was a great Nittany Lion. Always came off as a good guy.
