I wonder how many times Lovie Smith becomes the answer to "what minority did they interview?"

O'Brien & whomever lands the Lions job are walking into the best situations. Both of those teams have solid rosters already.

The Texans just needs a QB & I'm not sure there's one in this class that's worthy of the #1 overall picks.

News should not be announced when champagne and Twitter are available.

Honestly, good on him for getting an NFL job, which he's never denied has been his ultimate goal. Good on him for getting the yutzes in charge to reduce his buyout by $13 million just before he interviewed. Good on him for getting a job closer to a reknowned Children's hospital for his son, who is severely disabled because of a congenital brain deformation. I'm still bothered, as an alum and fan, that he was telling recruits and players as of 2 days ago that he wasn't leaving. After waiting decades to finally hire a new coach, it's irritating to have to repeat that after only two years. I also don't understand why he fired 2 coaches a month ago if it's true that he told a reporter he wouldn't be the coach in a month.

I do get why he left, though. When the sanctions were announced in 2012, we still had a lot of underclassmen on scholarships. A lot graduated the past 2 years, and there are still years of scholarship reductions (3, I think?) to go. He kept the win-loss record consistent. The same core of players on the 2011 team that had 9 vacated wins went 8-4 and 7-5 with O'Brien. We'll be lucky to see 15 wins combined the next 3 years, so why not jump before your stock plummets?

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

O'Brien's interview on PennLive should scare the hell out of anyone wanting the PSU job. The cult of Paterno is going to do more damage than any sanction or fine.

Loved how O'Brien referred to them as "zombified acolytes".

Two players lost to season-ending injuries, and a third suffered an ankle sprain on the first day of practice. Kind of crazy.
