Penn State's offensive strategy is driving former LB Micah Parsons crazy
For the second week in a row, former Penn State star Micah Parsons is unhappy with the Nittany Lions.
This week, Parsons’ issue is with PSU’s offensive play calling:
I wonder how my times we going to run read option next half!!?!

Penn State quarterback Sean Clifford had a rough first half. He carried the ball 11 times for just 10 yards, much of that coming on failed read option attempts. He also completed just 2-of-7 passes.
Overall, the Nittany Lions are struggling offensively. They’re averaging just 2.6 yards per rush and 4.1 yards per pass at the break. Devyn Ford is the leading rusher with 33 yards on six carries.
Parsons opted out of the 2020 season and is preparing for the 2021 NFL Draft, where he’s expected to be a first-round pick.
Penn State is trailing Ohio State 21-6 at the end of the first half.
