Yeah I went to the Blue and White game, as well as two home games so far this season. You can see the team developing and progressing every game. It is pretty exciting. The new 3 back running scheme has really taken off and it seems McGloin's vision is getting better. He is fortunate so far that the offensive line has been giving him a lot of time in the pocket. That part worries me because the O-line hasn't really been tested yet the season by a competitive defense.

Great comeback win. O'Brien has really made a difference with McGloin.

O'Brien seems to be very good at calling the game to the team's strengths, both on offense and defense. He seems very 'in tune' with his players, which is somewhat surprising given this being his first year with these guys.

Probably the most fun I've ever had at a Penn State game. Terrific atmosphere, great effort, and just an all around great ****ing game.

The players really seem like they'd go through a wall for the guy, to use the cliche.

I notice how every chance O'Brien gets he says how much PSU "is a great place to play football and to go to school." He always talks up the education. I don't care if it's part of the PR strategy; Lt. Dish approves that message.

Announcers on the game said they thought the two best teams in the B1G are the two banned from the postseason. I think PSU is certainly making a case that they're correct.

This team plays with heart, I love it.

I don't think that PSU is top two in the B1G... Top 4? Definitely. OSU is definitely the top team at the moment. I'd say behind OSU it'd be Michigan (look at their 2 losses, versus PSU's two losses), and then Nebraska and PSU pretty much equal in my eyes. It's only been 2 games in the B1G 10 play, but it definitely looks like 3rd place form the Leaders division may be playing for the B1G championship.

It'll be interesting to see if he can lure a big-time recruit...especially a QB or RB. PSU has never been able to get these guys, but they've never had someone like O'Brien to sell the offense (an NFL-style offense that puts up points). One thing's for certain...we should be on every top TE's list moving forward.

They already have the number one pocket passer in the 2013 class committed along with a top TE.

McGloin's fundamentals are sooo bad. I can't wait to see what O'Brien does with a real QB.

Breneman was a 5* recruit and #1 TE in the country before he tore his ACL. Not sure where he ranks now. But I am very excited to see Christian Hackenberg come in play at QB as a true freshman.
