But he's 100% correct.
Except the last line about making a BCS bowl this year.

I don't think a BCS bowl is necessary either.

Agreed. He hit the nail on the head besides the BCS part, 9-10 wins would do the trick IMO. People that are freaking out need to read this article, O'Brien has taken care of business thus far. I think following his sizzling start on the recruiting trail people formed lofty expectations. People need to keep things in perspective.
Also, if he can show he can win 9-11 games in the first year or two, we will have some VERY good classes.
I think it was a well written and favorable article; however, I do agree that a BCS game is not necessary this year...how many coaches make a BCS bowl their first year?
Bill O'Brien deserves a tremendous amount of credit for keeping Penn State steered in the right direction without even coaching a single game. He has kept true to the PSU Brand & all of its traditions and gained commitments from multiple prospects that are tops in their class. A top ten recruiting class? I'll certainly take it, and especially after what happened this past November.
...And all while living out of a hotel room. Bravo, Coach, the future of PSU football looks bright!

"On paper they have nothing to play for– no bowl games, rankings, or championships– yet they play like they have everything on the line."
Barring a complete collapse by Wisco, a BCS bowl is just not happening. But I think as long as BOB finishes with 8+ wins, the recruits will stick.
I agree. I think success on the field in year one will go a long way in determining the future of PSU football for a very long time.
