Talking about his improvement as a quarterback, and how the Nittany Lions always come up short because their coach and quarterback. Then the guys get into the defensive side of the ball and discuss what Manny Diaz brings to the table.

Moving on from that, Chris and Jordan then talk about a question from the Twitter-verse asking which Penn State players would start at Ohio State? They go down a list of some of Penn State’s best players and discuss if they would start for the Buckeyes.
