Inside The Locker Room

Friday in The Locker Room:

  • Penn State Head Coach Bill O'Brien joined the show and told Crump and JP that he tried to keep his team focused on football, rather than the recovery from last year's scandal, subsequent punishment and the NCAA's recent decision to reduce some of the penalties involved.
  • Coach O'Brien also told the guys that he wouldn't be surprised to see a fellow Big Ten team vie for the BCS National Championship this year.
  • And he spoke fondly of Alge from their days together from the New England Patriots.
  • Falcons Head Coach Mike Smith also joined the show for his weekly visit, and he told the guys his team will be ready when Tom Brady and the Patriots come calling on Sunday night.
  • Coach Smith also has a proven track record of not losing back-to-back games, and he knows that is imperative on Sunday night.
