2 scholarship QBs, yes. Several walk-ons.
Posted Wednesday May 01, 2013, About: HGH use prevalent and on the rise
Just to be clear, HGH does not enhance strength or ability like steroids may. HGH only helps you heal faster which week to week over a 16 game season, I suppose could be considered a "PED". I would call it more of Performance decline prevention. HGH is banned b/c it is often used in conjunction with steroids to more quickly heal the micotears from lifting weights and accelerate muscle growth. Personally, I think the leagues, via league doctors, should administer HGH for the treatment of acute injuries. The league and teams have a huge financial interest in the best players being on the field and HGH would have a significant impact on that
Posted Thursday April 25, 2013, About: QB transfer shakes up Penn State depth chart
This is very simple...Bench was a bit of a reach, being recruited away from Rice after the sanctions took a toll on the 2012 class. Bench and Ferguson split reps in the spring and both were very similar in the Spring game, even though Bench had 1.5 years in the program to Ferguson's 3.5mos. Ferguson has better measurables and upside. After the spring game last saturday, O'Brien brought Bench in and told him that he would be 3rd on the depth chart once Hackenburg arrived on campus in June. That gave Bench the oppty to decide whether to stick around or take advantage of the transfer rule from the sanctions and play immediately. He obviously chose to leave. Best of Luck Steve!
Posted Saturday July 14, 2012, About: Paterno negotiated contract perks amid Sandusky inquiry
All you muppets do realize that Joe was sick right? He had an illness in 2010 that kept him sidelined for much of the year and he was in the hospital a few was never disclosed what it was, but many believed it was prostate cancer. He "beat" it and looked good, but prostate cancer will often come back and metastasize in another area, like the lungs. Penn State message board followers had been told for 6mos prior to Sandusky that 2011 was going to be Joe's last unless there was some dramatic improvement in his health. You can spin all the conspiracy theories you want, but they just aren't true.

...and BTW, it was all but a done deal that Urban Meyer was going to take the job. There was at least one positive of this whole thing
