Notes and Thoughts:

  • The depth at wide receiver and defensive end really dried up this week, with only 5 WRs and 4 DEs getting snaps. Was Liam Clifford hurt? The defense especially missed Chop Robinson and Amin Vanover this week.
  • Zakee Wheatley had only one snap in the game, and it was the blown coverage that gave Indiana its first touchdown.
  • Olu Fashanu and Hunter Nourzad were the only offensive linemen to play every snap. The lack of continuity on the line may be affecting their play. They struggled to contain Indiana’s pass rush and get a push in the running game.
  • Beau Pribula had only 2 snaps. I was hoping we would see a play package with Pribula, but I don’t think it’s coming to fruition this season.
  • Sometimes you have to win ugly. Before last week, Penn State’s 18 previous games were decided by more than one score. It had been a while since PSU was dragged into a slugfest with a team they should have handled easily, and it felt like they were due for a game like this.
  • On to Maryland!
