Forgive me for linking a Cory Giger article, but there was actually some good info in this recent piece about Coach O'Brien and the possible looks of the future Penn State football squadron.
UNIVERSITY PARK -- Matt McGloin's first thought when he finally got his hands on Penn State's new playbook was, "It's big."
"It was exciting to get it at first," said the quarterback, noting he's only received "some form of the playbook" so far and not the whole thing.
"I've been trying to get my hands on one for a while," McGloin added. "I finally got it and was just reading through it. And as difficult as it's going to be to get that system going, it's exciting."
Why so exciting?
"The playbook is definitely different, and it's very similar to what the Patriots do," McGloin said.
