Killer Cars: I'm not so sure O'Brien would have stayed much longer even if the "Paterno people" left him the fark alone. Taking a job where sanctions of some kind were imminent and presumably the kind of situation where simply "being competitive" would look amazing just smelled like he viewed the gig as a stepping stone.

It was definitely a mutually-beneficial circumstance for both parties.  Penn State was going to have a hell of a time finding a coach to create a disconnect from the Paterno era, O'Brien was looking for an opportunity to establish himself.  That's why (IMO) they so drastically reduced his buyout after his 2nd season, now they can bring back someone who once worshiped at the altar of Joe Paterno to satisfy the maniacal sycophants of Happy Valley.

And I have to laugh that people were that bent out of shape over Ron farking Vanderlinden.  That guy couldn't coach his way out of a paper bag.
