What do you say when you get rid of guys that are winning, but you pay the losers like Dan Morgan who stay hurt all the time. What a slap in the face to Buckner, Short with these so call business decisions. The Panthers really show key players no mercy. I guess it was a hint when they let Moose go. Hats of to the Richardsons. Yeah right. Glad I sold my PSL seats.

I am a supporter of Brandon Short, being a PSU fan, and I am sorry to see him go. That said, I have a better feeling for the other decisions that were made. Stephen Davis was hurt and did not seem to recover to the point he was prior to his injury. He was a great player for us and I feel he could be a real good coach, but I think his playing days may be over. Rod Smart, as good as he was the prior two years, was not able to step up in 2005. Like it or not, if you don't perform you're going to be looking for a new place to play. He's a good guy and I hope he finds another team that can use his talents. As for Buckner, if we are being honest with ourselves, painfully honest, his age may be his undoing. He is at a point in his career where he may no longer be the every down player. I think he could also be a great sideline leader, but not in uniform.
