You're correct. Though eventually I'd like see someone take the reigns over, I feel Penn State needs more time to look for his potential successor although I think it will be Bradley. How JoePa has molded the Penn State Program has kinda went hand in hand with how other coaches mold their programs(EX: Ohio State)

We can be sure of this though.

Unless if one of our said schools doesn't give in to our schools wishes for the series, Penn State/Pitt won't happen for awhile.
