Success With Hyperlinking Is Awaiting The End

New, comments

Hey, we're back from hiatus!

Matthew O'Haren-USA TODAY Sports

College football ends tonight. It's the day that we all dread every year, but after tonight's national championship game, we must wait until April for the spring game for that sweet taste of the greatest sport ever created again. So cherish every second tonight, even if you have to watch Ohio State play for a title. And in the meantime, check out the mothership's coverage of tonight's game.

Now, onto some other news and notes:

  • Last week, 2014's backup quarterback D.J. Crook tweeted that he was transferring out of the Penn State and heading to play for SUNY Albany. With Trace McSorley and Tommy Stevens on the team in 2015, Crook probably saw that even mop-up duty was out of the question for him and decided to move onto a school where he could utilize his talents. We here at Black Shoe Diaries wish D.J. all the best as his continues his academic and football career at Albany!
  • Former Wake Forest guard/center Cory Helms, a 2013 Freshman All-American selection, is transferring out of the Demon Deacon program and Coach Franklin has already offered a scholarship to the 6-foot-4, 305-pounder. He's set to visit State College on Jan. 30. The addition of Helms' skill and experience would only benefit a line that allowed Christian Hackenberg to be sacked 44 times in 2014. Helms is also being courted by Texas A&M and South Carolina.
  • Onward State takes a look at how Penn State will replace Donovan Smith, Deion Barnes and Jesse James in 2015.
  • Tulsa has hired away former Penn State assistant coach Brian Norwood from Baylor, effectively cutting off the Penn State-to-Baylor transfer pipeline that included Phil Taylor and Shawn Oakman.
  • Yesterday was James Franklin's one-year anniversary as Penn State coach and the football staff made a video commemorating the coach's first season.
