Sean Clifford's injury versus Iowa shows QB stands between Penn State and "elite."

Show Notes

Hair metal rockers Cinderella perhaps put it best with their 1988 hit: "Don't Know What You Got (Til It's Gone)." Sean Clifford was shredding the vaunted Iowa Hawkeyes defense in hostile environs until an injury put him out of the game early in the second quarter. At that point, Penn State fans the world over, many of whom had harbored doubts about the third-year starter (and were rarely shy about expressing them), realized just how vitally important Cliff is to this team's success. Jim and Chris review the carnage from Kinnick and results from around the country and ponder just how essential recruiting and developing the QB position will be to James Franklin's pursuit of that elusive "elite" status.

The goal is to touch on a broad variety of topics relating to the Nittany Lions in conversations that are frequently funny and occasionally profound, all while enjoying a few (or more) adult beverages.
