08:25 AM ET 06.07 | Considering his spot in the rotation, Matt McGloin is understandably pleased with Penn State coach Bill O'Brien's announcing that McGloin would be the team's starting quarterback. "I think coach O'Brien did a great thing by announcing it early," McGloin said. ... McGloin makes no secret of the fact that he and former quarterbacks coach Jay Paterno had their differences. These days, McGloin can only shake his head when addressing the unpopular quarterback rotation he and [Rob Bolden] were forced to endure the past two years. "It's a killer to a team, in my opinion," McGloin said. "You have to have a clear-cut starter. The team has to believe in the quarterback. That wasn't the case the last two years."

I have made the reference before and no one noticed, but every time I see this guy's name it reminds me of Gangs of New York. The guy Dicaprrio fist fought - that guy's name was McGloin and Bill says, "McGloin was almost fish-hooked by a spratt".

Reminds me every time. I liked that movie.

Only time will tell on McGloin--- first time he has been notified early about starting, we'll see if that has any impact on how he plays=-== O'Brien is changing the climate up at Happy Valley, I am looking forward to seeing a less conservative offense at PSU....

McGloin wasn't showered with praise up at Happy Valley.

Jay Paterno was NOT a coach, McStink is NOT a QB. The level of arrogance is always inversely proportional to the level of talent. He will be boo'd off the field in the 1st game against OHIO, who will be favored.

I for one wish Coach O'Brien & the team all the best, & will be watching to see how PSU progresses on the field. This sick, sordid mess has nothing to do with them.

Jay Pa will be lucky to ever get another coaching job.

Only time will tell if that was the correct decision. Agree he should just be happy with the outcome and shut up.

"The team has to believe in the quarterback" but they also have to respect the quarterback and the quarterback needs to be a leader who earns his teams respect, that is where McGloin falls flat. He's not respected, he's a punk who runs his mouth a lot and can't even come close to backing it up. They kicked Drake off the team for proving McGloin is nothing but a punk but for my money I'd rather have Drake on the team than McGloin, no one needs a loud mouthed punk on their football team and especially not as the QB.
