Bill O'Brien talks about the future for Penn State
When I first came to Penn State my family was -- years I was here. And coming here for Saturday mornings they have to look at this moment in golf national office. So I was Comcast sports net into the local here. This long right here. It is all the Letterman. All the weakness. So you go to you come down here late at night. And if you look at the names of this law fifth minute and hasn't really it was. This is a great ball because there's some great players and just Waltz. It was a neat pictures. Gave me today actually -- -- class. The first two years. Just for me as a group of great. Since -- through from group you one of the things I find remarkable is how you have been able to keep your recruits. Coming to Penn State despite all the distractions that happened last year I think that's a lot of offense they. And that's has a lot of history and tradition. Of Penn State football and and and in many ways what coach Paterno built. This when you bring your record -- -- the tennis ball carrier has recruited me but. You know again that's that's a great friend of mine and a great. And obviously one of the best of all time I would imagine one of the great selling points. As recruits -- think she was head coach's. System. -- offense accordingly -- patent -- he can teach me a lot. Has that come up and conversation I'm sure -- when you're recruiting athletes to come here to -- -- sure. I think that's a big -- big deal -- yet. Head coach and a coaching staff. That had tremendous background. Places that they've been and the people with the coach this is part of recruiting to you wanna make sure the kids though -- They have the chance to make it to the NFL they come up. These old guys playing. Their number one thing is he's a great. He communicates his planned. To us as a staff. He communicates his plan or player. Very clearly very precisely. And then obviously. Has the ability to execute on that. Are you concerned anyway about the sanctions. -- handcuffing used to being the best you can be. As head football coach as pro. Oh sure sure I think there's there's a lot to that you know again. We can only signed fifteen guys for the next three years I -- we we can only have a maximum 65 guys on scholarship start and fourteen so. You know you're you're talking about playing playing these teams with twenty less players now. That's the the rules -- which we play under but that doesn't mean we're given -- the final thing is look at that -- what you mount Nittany. -- that. Yeah Scott rather -- came by the other day and I have these lines put in front of watched film. My screen here. And he was and they were down when he came -- it means -- a minute though this week it's about it easily but the line.
