Here's hoping that the best of the best football players in Maryland show pride in showing the country how good we are and get determined to bring a championship home. After all, if the best high school football is supposed to be in Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, etc., then it sure is odd that their state schools are here trying to get our players so their state can have that pride. Thirty years ago I turned down Bear Bryant at Alabama and Woody Hayes at Ohio State to represent Maryland. ACC CHAMPS GO MARYLAND!!

Seriously, look at all those offers. He shouldn't waste his time or efforts even considering Maryland. With such good facilities and fanbase, and some better talent coming in, why do the Terps still struggle in a relatively weak conference?

Come play in front of 110,000 people (Presently the largest stadium with repairs to michigan)..Let me say we're not cocky, but confident when it comes to making claims that Penn State is home to the best student section in the coutnry. Penn State is about pride, tradition, integrity, and honor(values that have been lost at some of the major universities). To Jelani Jenkins, a man with your talent will, God willing, eventually make it to the next level. The college experience should is short and should be as memorable as possible. At least visit during the upcoming seaon's two night games, and you will not be let down. You will be utilized to exploit your rare speed to play a variety of positons. JoePa already told Dorian Bell that we need linebackers that are willing to play early as a running back. We could also use you at safety. Eventually, your time will come to make a name for yourself as another solidified great linebacker of Linebacker U!

In response to Rick's post (We Are!)

PENN STATE!
