Breaking Out Raise your hand if you’re ready to see Penn State’s offensive line become one of the best in the nation, jam-packed with All-Americans.

If that scenario is to occur soon, Michal Menet will play a very large part.

From the Horse’s Mouth James Franklin offered some insight on the strides being made during spring ball. Franklin specifically called out Lamont Wade, Judge Culpepper and Antonio Shelton for making major progress as they prepare to play a larger role with the defense in 2019.
Bring Back the Oilers If you ask me to rate my all-time favorite NFL uniforms, the Houston Oilers are on the top of the list and it’s not even close.
