Morelli

I know a lot of the PSU faithful are down on soon-to-be-senior quarterback Anthony Morelli. He struggled at times last year and is going to face a stiff challenge for his starting job in spring practice from newcomer Pat Kennedy. I really am willing to go on record as saying that Morelli deserves a shot at the the starting nod in his senior year, though, unless Kennedy really blows Joe Pa out of the water.

I'll never forget that Michigan game where Morelli, after the offensive line was letting him get knocked down the whole game, instinctively stepped off to his side to avoid a pass rusher he couldn't possibly have seen with his eyes, threw a 25-yard pass across his body to the other side of the field for a complete, got leveled by a guy and sustained a concussion, and then asked if he completed the pass as he was taking to the sideline. This kid has a big league arm and a big league attitude. So he had some adjustment issues his first year at the helm, don't count him out yet.
