Penn State Head Coach Bill O’Brien is coming off a really rough week. Losing at home to Central Florida is an experience that is new to Nittany Nation. Home pre-conference losses don’t happen often in Happy Valley. And they certainly don’t happen to mid-majors.
However, this could be a sign of things to come for Bill O’Brien and Penn State football; this is life under sanctions. So when BOB took to the Big Ten coaches conference call today, it wasn’t under the greatest of circumstances. Still O’Brien had a pretty good joke.
“I don’t tweet, I don’t Spacebook. I don’t blog or whatever. I just read the articles,” Bill O’Brien said.
Was pretty funny that O’Brien broke the tension with the “Spacebook” joke. BOB also says he’ll read five or six articles in a day. So I’m guessing he’s seen this very popular Bill O’Brien meme:
It’s refreshing to hear a big name coach at a big name school say that. Because 99% of the time you hear the “we don’t pay attention to that” b.s
