SBNation PSU: O'Brien Didn't Get It

Quote:
Bill O’Brien certainly had his work cut out for him when he got to Penn State in 2012. In the last couple of days, I’ve realized that he wasn’t cut out for the job. He did a lot of good for Penn State, and gave us all something to rally around in the hardest of times. But his off-season games (talking with NFL teams while promising players he was staying) made me question his intentions. I’m disappointed to find that the university hired someone who was only interested in using Penn State as a stepping stone to something "better."

I'm sure if Penn State hires James Franklin there is going to be a huge outcry from PSU fan about those poor Vandy kids that Franklin lied to and left behind. Not.

These PSU whiners are acting like O'Brien leaving for a better job is something altogether new and unheard of in college coaching. These people need to realize that they're not special or different or unique...it happens all the time. It's called "career growth."

I'm developing a big-time hate for PSU. Get out of my B1G, fools. Thought they should have been kicked after the whole scandal broke, too.

Straight up on your better headline. The unbelievable arrogance on display is astounding when you step back and understand that this sick, twisted, and very insulated culture is what caused Paterno to look the other way while a series depraved atrocities happened in his own facility.

These people are like some kind of Jones Town cult of personality around Paterno. My only desire is the whole damn place drinks the tainted koolaide to pay for their blinding loyalty to an institution who values stupid traditions over human rights abuses.

You'd think some of these people would be ashamed of their damned traditions and the value they put on them, but it seems to be the exact opposite. The give off a vibe of arrogant defiance, which is bizarre, to say the least.

I'm in the same mood as IlliniJen. I'm quickly developing a hatred of these people and I just despise everything about that place.

Co-sign. I never wanted them in my B1G, either. Couldn't stand them then, hated them after the scandal, and can't stand them even more now. They are an embarrassment to the Big 10 and all of college football.

Everyone should listen to this presser. Here's what I heard from McNair and Smith:

Kubiak was not intelligent.
Kubiak was not a great leader.
Kubiak could not adapt from a gameplan that he had prepared.
Kubiak was too weak in the end of games.

We made a mistake hiring a coordinator who had never been a head coach before.

Probably in around a decade (maybe a little more than that) he's the owner of the Houston Texans so hopefully he's not a "doofus". Bob McNair is 77 years old. He might make it into his 90's or he might not.

I don't think the vacated wins went back that far.

They don't get it and probably never will. Having Paterno there so long really did insulate them from many of the changes the game has undergone. Colleges all over the country are accustomed to the coaching merry-go-round now and have been for some time.

Alabama thinks they got Saban and he's the best coach in the universe? Well here comes Texas. Didn't happen of course but we all knew it was entirely possible even if it was Alabama. It can and does happen to anybody. Coaches move around and nobody keeps doing the same thing for 40-50 years anymore. Nobody but these people. To them that's "normal" and they're in for a rude awakening if they are going to take exception to everyone who uses Penn State as a stepping stone. Damn near everyone uses someone for a stepping stone in college football today.
