Penn State’s offense has been slow out of the gates again in 2015 behind another version of the same troublesome offensive line and the continued woes of quarterback Christian Hackenberg. The Nittany Lions have struggled to establish consistency through the air and on the ground, leading to 37 points in two games against Temple and Buffalo.
While much of the blame has been directed at Hackenberg and the O-line, coach James Franklin and offensive coordinator John Donovan have also faced questions about playcalling and their inability to right many of the same wrongs from last season. Hackenberg has averaged just 115.5 passing yards per game and thrown one touchdown pass, which came in the fourth quarter of a surprisingly tight win over Buffalo.
Former NFL offensive lineman Ross Tucker sets his sights on the staff’s playcalling in this week’s edition of “Tucker’s Tape” on the Keystone Kickoff Show.
