ESPN writer's take on John Donovan from covering him at Penn State

2»

Comments

  • Listened to the podcast a few days ago... nothing we didn't know.

    1. Sanctions may or may not have hurt his chance to develop a quality offense.
    2. May or may not be a good recruiter because Franklin is well known in this arena.
    3. Not sure if he can develop a quarterback cause Hackenberg sucked.
    4. He may or may not have been the scape goat for internal issues with the program.
    5. Was a rising star at Vandi and his named potentially derailed by a bad situation.

    30 minute podcast essentially used to say that they really have no idea if Dovovan sucks or not.

    I am very happy that UW hired Donovan.

    Another thing I've noticed along with Coker. A lot of players are hitting the weight room a bit harder than they have in
    years past. Hmmmm could it be that players be signaling that they understand Jimmy's loyalty are different than Petersen's
    loyalty and CP liking you = playing time is an bygone era now?

    Tick tick tick tick tick.

    Disagree.

    He sucks until he doesn't. Plenty of circumstantial evidence says he sucks. A handful of excuses for why it wasn't his fault for sucking.

    Stay tuned...

    Hackenberg was the next big thing until Donovan ruined him.
  • He was horrible at PSU, case closed. No other way to dissect it/spin it.

    That being said, if BTP is bearish on Donovan I like his chances to outperform

    How much worse could we really get compared to last year? Ross, Pettis and Gaskin kind of masked what was really creaky offensive scheme.

    It can always get worse.
