Bill O'Brien, he's not the devil
As you probably know by now, Penn State Head Football Coach Bill O'Brien has forgone Blue and White to accept a Coaching job in the NFL for the Houston Texans. And people are Peo'ed! I saw this post Wednesday on twitter from a sports writer out of Pittsburgh: "What's the point of college coaches even having contracts?" I guess to provide some protection for both should anything change. Like PSU getting millions from the Texans because O'Brien left. I saw so many "He was" tweets too. Yeah, A lot of people are very upset that Bill O'Brien took a better job. Are you kidding me? I see a lot of what about loyalty comments and the like. Hey you think there is loyalty in big time sports? Then I got a bridge to sell ya. If he wasn't winning he would be out on his loyal backside in a heartbeat. Unless of course you work for the Pittsburgh Steelers, that Rooney family is loyal. Outside of that, this loyalty b.s. cuts both ways. I don't know about you but if a big city job that paid a boatload of cash came to me I'd seriously think about taking it and I grew up listening to Rock 107. So I'm loyal but I'm not stupid. When you can walk away for a great job to keep a good job because of loyalty then you can whine about Bill O'Brien leaving Penn State. I cannot understand beating a guy up who took a better job. But yet a lot PSU fans act like he stole from them. Come on man! He came In took a job that NOT A LOT of people wanted and pretty much knocked the bottom out of it. He took a program many left for dead and saved it. Seriously I don't think I'm overstating it. When you do great work, better opportunities come to you and you'd be foolish not to take it. Bill O'Brien did that. He didn't murder anyone, steal from anyone or betray anyone. He took a better job. Period! You'd do it too and if not your aren't loyal, you're stupid!
