They had no running game ( except QB runs) and couldn’t stop buffalo’s running game. If They don’t fix that , they’re in trouble in the Big Ten , and Clifford won’t last long .

They get all these 3 and 4 star lineman, especially offensive linemen, and we keep having inadequate results. Seems like a coach them up problem.

Yeah....PITT will likely be another good "tune-up" game but the "tune-up" period is soon coming to an end. Hopefully, all cylinders will be firing when the tough Big 10ers enter the track!!

They have days to come up with a game plan then once again look lost the entire first half. In 10 min at half time they figure it out. Maybe they scheme and over think in the days leading up to the game. Time might be better spent in how to block and tackle. But a win is a win, no matter if it's not pretty.

I stated last year when the line all went to the draft this year would be a test to coaching. Seems like they did not scout these first 2 teams and did the scouting in the first half and came up with a game plan for the second half. So my take is the coaches were unprepared or overconfident.

If they don't find a running game there will be no passing game. Waugh!

Tell me again how the O line was not hurt by the underclassmen drafted. Waugh!

If this was a big 10 crew PSU will lose 3 or more this year. Very one sided officiating on important calls. Waugh!

Not ever!!! With Franklin as the coach. He is terrible! I would like to see an offensive line somewhere in the near future.
Was no bigger psu fan then me. Now I canít hardly stand to watch them. This isnít psu football. This is crap. May get trimmed up against Maryland.. at least 4 losses this year.

These games against Buffalo and Pitt have exposed the O line as a weakness. They're not going to hold up through the Big 10 schedule. They look decent running the ball, but the pass protection is a major concern. This is like Pitt's superbowl, so I never expected a blow out, but PSU pass rush wasn't nearly as effective as I thought they would be.

The thing I can't understand about today's game was that PSU went on that 1 long drive and scored a TD, much of which was done on the back of Noah Cain, but I don't think the kid played another snap after that series. I don't get it. If you're going to rotate 4 backs you have to play the hot hand.

I'm predicting a 3 loss season at this point.

That Pitt QB looked good but chocked when the game was on the line.

The PSU QB looked raw with a lot of up side to him when he gets to know his receivers better. The kid has guts and played well under pressure. Franklin needs to provide a dump off man for him. A TE with hands will open up that long ball and they need to run to set up the pass not pass to set up the run. That line has to do better. The secondary needs plenty of work. Waugh!
