    As someone mentioned above, there are apparently a certain number of sideline passes available to teams. I don’t like it for donors, and I don’t like to see the DA walking around the sideline EVERY game. I get why it’s done for donors, but to me it’s a distraction.

    In my opinion, the DA should sit in the stands like everyone else if for no other reason than to avoid scrutiny when his office is dealing with a football player. I think that’s the appropriate thing to do, but what do I know?

    It absolutely would have to be a MAJOR distraction to have the DA on the sideline when probably a certain percentage of the team is in hot water of one kind or another. They probably keep looking over their shoulders. LOL.

    I agree with your comments. It may be better to have that separation from county official and the student-athletes like that. I was just snickering about it. I'm sure others would do the same.

    It's also possible that he has been a part of the IUP sideline since he was a young boy with his father being coach. I have no idea on that.

    Made my first visit in 1981 ..haha maybe I’m a Martian or maybe I’m not. IUP can use all the support it can get. You do have a say if you vote in Indiana ... now how about those long snappers on Friday? Jus sayin

    I guess we are too spoiled of having a RS Freshman to start 4 years. Maybe these guys are not quite ready for prime time and maybe they need one more year.

    The donor sideline pass doesn't put one on the bench. Or, near it. They have to stand in a certain area and can't leave it (around the 25).

    The PSAC used to allow so many 'away team' passes up until last season.

    Is Eddie Gavitt still the long snapper?

    But they are needed now. Pronto. The time has come today.

    It doesn't exactly inspire a lot of confidence at this point in time of the QB situation if both ballyhooed QB recruits are unable to wrest the job from the rest of the pack. Now, add two transfers to the mix. What's the old adage--- if you have two QBs you don't have one. What if you have four? Goodness!

    But this will be must-see television come fall camp.

    That might work. At least it would drive IUP24 completely nuts!

    I believe the QB situation will be Ok. Remember, Coach Tort is looking for a QB to basically just manage the offense to include refrain from big TOs in the big game(s). If they have the OL playing back to normal they probably won't throw the ball that much.

    They do need a QB that will make the right reads on the RPO, and is a threat to run or pass - otherwise we'll get what we saw last year - teams selling out to stop the run. They'll still beat the Lock Havens of the league with that, but not the better teams. The one year transfers I suppose will get the job done this year, but if the 2nd year guys are not ready, it means they'll never be more than average PSAC QBs at best.

    Just guessing but the three-way spring derby is likely to see who is second string in the fall.

    This Maxwell kid is a very legit prospect for this level. And, this offense isn't exactly rocket science. If he's here for the summer that will be plenty of time to learn all the handoffs and (3) pass plays.

    Maybe this offensive system isn't so special at all without a Lenny-type running it. Certainly pretty much a disaster at times last year. Defensive coaches of the other PSAC and D-II schools aren't stupid. They probably have digested enough tape to know how to shut it down or at least really slow it down. It may be time to come up with something a little different perhaps. This will be, what?, the fifth year now that IUP will be running it. And Lenny ain't here no more.

    Four years is a long time. Lot of film. Add to it IUP's playcalling was beyond horrendous last year. Tate Gregory was beyond awful.

    A few people I talked to (and at least one on here) last year made a suggestion that it wasn't so much the play calling as the QB's reads, and audible's ( or lack there of). Its true, opponents figured the best defense, but the offense relies on the QB to make good choices as well. I think the pick 6 at cal got into his head, and he was never the same after.
