This is just like losing it in the 4th quarter...very irritating! As someone alluded to in the other thread...with all of the BS that this school and team have put up with, we have an opportunity to do ONE SMALL POSITIVE thing....and we are letting it slip right out of our grasp.
PLEASE GO TO http://coachoftheyear.com and vote for Bill O'Brien.
NOTE: Yesterday we were blown out of the water. KSU fans added over 1000 votes to our 200...And they are up to it again today.
VOTE TODAY and for the next 15 days! WE HAVE THE LARGEST ALUMNI BASE IN THE COUNTRY...This should be EASY!
CAN SOMEONE GET THE WORD OUT TO THE STUDENTS?
Has it occured to you that OBJECTIVE people without ties to PSU or KSU may be voting? Not sure what having the largest alumni base in the country and the COTY have in common. Snyder is the COTY, and it's not close.
But you don't get it. Even if you actually believe Bill Snyder leading Kansas f*cking State to a #1 ranking is better than BOB taking a very very very shitty sitution and going 6-4, you still have to vote for PSU. Otherwise you aren't a fan. Period. Because that's the homer rule.
People all across the country are voting for Snyder because they think he deserves it. Not just KSU fans. Snyder is a helluva coach, he's earned those votes. And BOB has certainly earned his.
Yes, Snyder is a great coach and doing a great job... But not this year. This is BOB's award lol Homer yes, but the man deserves it. We need to get as many in Nittany Nation to make sure that the award is his and that he's recognized at the end of the year for the kick ass job we all know he's doing. Snyder can get second, and that would be awesome, but we need this more than KSU IMO. BOB deserves it more too. Again, that's homerish of me, but I dont care lol And I respect the hell out of Snyder, but I'd still love it if Waters picked us. Again, I get it, but I'm all in with this program.
WE ARE! And we will always be...
He hasn't coached better than Snyder, he doesn't deserve it. I was for BOB until about halfway through the Purdue game. BOB has done amazing, Snyder has done a much better job this year.
Then again, homers are what they are.
Well, I feel better about my position now..........
I said before that the one coach I wouldn't mind BOB losing the award to would be Bill Snyder.
O'Brien has done a great job, but there's something to be said about undefeated and #1 despite all the natural obstructions to success that go along with coaching in Manhattan.
Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
This award has NOTHING to do with the "winningest" coach! Just because Snyder's team is doing well...and not to take anything away from him...it is the SIGNIFICANT uphill climb that O'Brien was faced with...and the fact that he handled it with ethics, courage and dignity that I believe he wins this award HANDS DOWN.
The COTY site states it this way:
"COACHING IS BIGGER THAN A GAME
Fan voting will decide the top 15 coaches from each division who will qualify for our objective scoring model endorsed by the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame. The model will produce ten finalists from Division I-FBS and five finalist coaches from each of the three other divisions, based on the criteria below.
The best coaches conduct themselves in an honorable way on and off the field. By treating their players, opposing coaches and the media with respect, they set an example for everyone to follow.
Integrity means knowing how to win the right way. The best coaches refuse to bend or break the rules to keep their teams on top and require the same from their players.
Coaches aren’t just leaders of their team, but also leaders in their community. They give back to their schools and communities that cheer on their teams every week.
Wins and losses aren’t the only measure of excellence. It’s also about encouraging student-athletes to excel in the classroom so they be successful in anything they pursue when their playing days are done.
On the Field — Wins, penalties, and year-over-year improvements are among the measures of on-field excellence by the coach, his staff, and his team.
Off the Field — The coach’s commitment to education is measured by academic progress rate (APR) scores for the Division I schools and success at producing Academic All-Americans for Divisions II and III."
Huh? lol Please elaborate...
I tried to explain this yesterday.
He thinks you're a moron and by you taking the other side it ensures he's right.
Not tough to figure out.
Dude, chill out.
I don't even think O'brien is COTY in the B1G..... Urban turned OSU around really quickly

LOL Love the harsh words for no reason. Anyway.
I continue to vote BOB, but if Snyder wins it, I won't be upset at all....he is doing a terrific job too. Anyways, I think the fan vote is only 20% of the decision.
I think it's close, and it's probably the homer in me talking, but I'd say BOB deserves it. OSU wasn't very good last year, but he's still got a 5* QB to work with. What would Urban be doing if McGloin was his best QB option?
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion here...and can vote for whomever they please.
I AM SIMPLY ENCOURAGING THOSE WHO WERE OUT VOTING IN MASS NUMBERS A FEW WEEKS AGO, TO GO AT IT WITH GUSTO IN THE 4TH QUARTER. Those who voted previously obviously thought BoB was the COTY. Based on the cards dealt to Bill O'Brien and this team, and O'Brien's courage in walking into this job eyes wide open without flinching or running (WHEN NO OTHER COACH - Including Urban Meyer - would touch us with a ten-foot pole) and being able to hold the team together with VERY GOOD results (all things considered) earns BoB my vote.
COME ON PENN STATE FANS -- LET'S GET OUT AND VOTE FOR OUR COACH!!! http://coachoftheyear.com
PS -- Also, even though this is only part of the voting process, we DO have a chance to win some money for a good charity, and for our Alumni Association...and to get some GOOD PRESS for our university! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT?

Umm that isn't what I thought, its what he meant. Apparently you and PHD didn't pick up on that.
But vote BOB! Otherwise you don't support PSU.
I didn't say that... But OK. Didn't talk down to anyone for NOT voting, just trying to get more people to vote... Thats all
Yep. BOB doing that with McGloin in 1 year is pretty nuts.
God, you're so mean........
MTayl woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning, he is CRANKY.
Just because MTayl is cranky (lol)...just because Snyder is another excellent coach...does NOT mean that the rest of us (especially those who voted in huge numbers 4 - 5 weeks ago) shouldn't be voting for BoB NOW.
SO...Let's vote folks...post the link on your facebook wall, email your friends and heckle your family members to vote for O'Brien, too: http://coachoftheyear.com
Actually I'm in a great mood. I get to lay off union workers today.
Yep, he mad.
