In wake of Saturday's performance that got him Big Ten Freshman of the week honor, a lot of people are talking about Christian Hackenberg. Bill Connelly of the SB Nation mother ship gives Hack an A- for a grade.
So why the minus? The picks and sacks made PSU's life a little harder than it could have been, basically, and you always like room for growth, right?
Bob Flounders talks about the evolving relationship between coach O'Brien and Hack.
Of course, another guy that had a great day was kicker Sam Ficken. Your money quote from coach O'Brien:
I said, ‘Congratulations to Sam Ficken.’ Especially to all those tweeters after the Virginia game last year. He’s done a hell of a job and he deserves it.

Ryan Keiser talks about the defense but not about his successful fake field goal. SOA gets some love from philly.com.

Bob Flounders has your odds and ends wrap-up and here's your recruiting news.
Looking ahead to Eastern Michigan who beat Howard 34-24 this weekend.
The Eagles did control the tempo against Howard and held the ball for 32 minutes and 58 seconds. Look for Eagles head coach Ron English to be aggressive on the offensive side of the ball.
