Penn State has its hands full competing in a Big Ten East division that is loaded with potential and features coaching heavyweights Urban Meyer, Mark Dantonio, Jim Harbaugh and James Franklin. Ohio State is coming off a national championship run and has a tremendous base of talent to remain a national factor in 2015 and beyond.
The Nittany Lions are re-establishing themselves as a force on the recruiting trail, adding blue-chip talent at a rapid pace to shore up a roster that was ravaged by NCAA sanctions. When can Franklin expect to contend in the Big Ten East and, ultimately, become a factor in the College Football Playoff?
Bob Flounders and Dustin Hockensmith handicapped the Nittany Lions’ chances and took one last look at the Buckeyes’ national championship in this week’s Keystone Sports Network podcast.
