Penn State wraps up spring football
With only two practices left, we’ll start the show focusing on the Blue-White Game on Saturday. Head coach James Franklin confirmed that his team would participate in a traditional spring game. So what are the experts looking for? And what should you keep your eye on? Fitz will share his thoughts about that subject and what he took away from practice this spring.
Next, the group dives into open practice and what they observed on Tuesday evening. Bauer spent his time with the defense and has some tidbits to share with fans who haven’t signed up yet for premium access.
Meanwhile, T-Frank discusses what he saw from the offensive players during his time at open practice.
After James Franklin’s comments Tuesday night, Penn State made several players and coaches available. Bauer and T-Frank caught up with several of them and share what they learned from those players and staff members in the roughly 15 minutes of interview time. T-Frank spoke with new center Hunter Nourzad and receiver Trey Wallace while Bauer spoke with running back’s coach Ja’Juan Seider.
Franklin opens up about NIL
While he said nothing new on Tuesday evening, Franklin’s comments about the NIL and facilities took on a new meaning. Franklin was frank about his assessment of what the program needs when asked about the public debate around the Board of Trustees election this week. Bauer, BWI’s leading expert on this subject, will discuss the intricacies of that topic with T-Frank.
