    BWI Daily: Practice and Season Observations with Nate Bauer

    BWI Daily: Practice and Season Observations with Nate Bauer

    The #PennState #NittanyLions football team faced Villanova on Saturday at noon and Senior Editor Nate Bauer is back on the BWI Daily Edition to talk about his observations of the team this week, and thus far this season with host Thomas Frank Carr.


    They discuss:


    The observable difference between backup quarterback Ta'Quan Roberson and starter Sean Clifford during drills, as well as the effect that offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich has had on both of them.


     


    They also look at the depth and rotation that Penn State has been lacking so far this season through the first month of play and how that might change this weekend.


     


    Nate and T-Frank also get into which players have stood out so far and why it's important that those particular players have done so.


    Then they get into some mailbag questions provided on Twitter including:


    "Will Kalen King replace Tariq Castro-Fields?" and "Should Penn State fans be worried about the low sack total through three games"


    Finally they wrap up with a discussion about the offensive line and the path forward for that unit.

    BWI Daily: Hoops Commit Breakdown with Dave Eckert

    BWI Daily: Hoops Commit Breakdown with Dave Eckert

    Penn State's Basketball program added yet another highly-sought after prospect in the Class of 2022 with 6-foot-9 big man Kebba Njie on Saturday. Recruiting Insider for Penn State basketball, Dave Eckert, joins host Thomas Frank Carr to give some insight into why the 147th ranked player in the nation, according to Rivals, chose Penn State over Kansas State and Butler.


    They also discuss the Penn State basketball program as a whole and whether or not fans should be excited about yet another hopeful start to a program rebuild with a new coach. Dave shares his thoughts about what new head coach Micah Shrewsberry is doing differently than other coaches before him.


    Dave and T-Frank also discuss James Franklin's comments from his press conference Tuesday and how rare it is for Franklin to specifically get into calls and how they were adjudicated on the field.


    Finally they wrap up by discussing whether or not Penn State basketball can finally be a draw that will help the football team carry the brunt of funding such a large sports department at Penn State with their current trajectory.

    BWI Daily: Is the Penn State Secondary Elite?

    BWI Daily: Is the Penn State Secondary Elite?

    The #PennState #NittanyLions are 3-0 and have defeated two top 25 football teams to get there. The team sits at 6th in the nation and is poised to be a contender in 2021 thanks to stellar play from several key areas.


    The clear strength of the team, according to host Thomas Frank Carr, is the secondary. The Penn State coverage unit, led by All-American candidate Jaquan Brisker has been playing at a level that Penn State fans have not seen from the Nittany Lions under James Franklin. T-Frank takes you through the metrics, player and rankings that back up that assertion.
