Some Insight Into BOB's Final Months At PSU

Some of [O'Brien's] frustrations revolved around what he saw as the lack of leadership at Penn State and his desire simply to fulfill his job description as the football coach, not university figurehead. I wrote about this a few days ago when I thought the time was apt.

"You can print this: You can print that I don’t really give a ---- what the ‘Paterno people’ think about what I do with this program. I’ve done everything I can to show respect to Coach Paterno. Everything in my power. So I could really care less about what the Paterno faction of people, or whatever you call them, think about what I do with the program. I’m tired of it.

"For any ‘Paterno person’ to have any objection to what I’m doing, it makes me wanna put my fist through this windshield right now.

"I’m trying to field the most competitive football team I can with near-death penalty ----ing sanctions. Every time I say something like that and somebody prints it, it’s skewed as an excuse. And I’m not an excuse-maker. I’m trying to do the best I can for the kids in that program. That’s all I care about is the kids in that program. As long as I’m the head football coach here."

Bridgewater was asked whether he thinks he is ready for the NFL.
"Of course I do," he said. "I feel that I’m ready, but I also feel that I’m not. It can go either way."

In what areas does he feel he can improve?
"Just the little things. For one, I can get bigger. I’m not as heavy as I was last year, but I can attribute that to my mouth surgery. ... If I was 10 pounds heavier I could have more zip on my throws."

From A.J. Bouye's Twitter feed. This is how you celebrate the holidays! Notice the $4,600 worth of Louis XIII, which amounts to 28 one-ounce shots according to Johnathan Joseph's Instagram account. Outrageous.

I saw this originally on SoTT and thought it was worth sharing.

The "smh" caption from the link is as telling as it is brief. I'm surprised that fellow rookie D.J. Swearinger wasn't forced to split it with him.

Did you know that there's a bastion of Texans fans in Edmonton Canada? I didn't, but the Warren Moon connection has held strong over the years, apparently.

I got a chance to speak with Kevin Lowe of TSN in Edmonton for a few minutes. We talked Schaub, Kubiak, Andre and losing. Have a listen.

I come in around the 15th minute mark.
