I was asked to share my thoughts on Penn State coming out of the spring practice season. Here is a sample of what I had to offer. Be sure to check out the entire wrap-up on The Saturday Edge and give it a follow on Twitter @SaturdayEdge. This is going to be quite an interesting season for Penn State, and if all goes right for the Nttany Lions there should be nothing holding them back from improving on their 2013 win total of seven games, despite still playing through sanctions and reduced scholarships. James Franklin should bring a new spark to the program and the offense has players who can make some things happen. The schedule is about as favorable as it could get despite playing UCF in Ireland (not the same UCF from 2013 of course), Rutgers on the road in their first Big Ten game, and they get Ohio State and Michigan State, the two 2013 Big Ten Championship Game participants, both at home. A split against the Buckeyes and the Spartans is probably not that far out of the question....
