08:19 AM ET 08.16 | Before Silas Redd left Penn State for USC, he was helping sophomore running back Bill Belton transition to what has now become the latter's job. It has a fishbowl quality to it and officially began last Monday. That's when coach Bill O'Brien said Belton would be the team's starting running back. Belton would be considered the first option -- yes, No. 1 -- to replace the vital measure of offense lost with the departed [Redd]. ... Before [Redd] left for Southern California, he told Belton that it was his time. Belton knows. He's excited. You can hear it in his word choice. In a seven-minute span during media day last week, Belton referred to the date of the first game, Sept. 1, eight times. He used the word "opportunity" six times.

O'Brien deserves better than the mess he inherited at Penn State. Hope he succeeds.

He took the job. He could have turned it down.

The excerpts from the upcoming joepa book by Pasnanski seem interesting about how that place is a mess. Wish riverbabe, who went on the crusade last year about how it was only 1 guy, would return now that more and more is coming out.

Some of the women don't have a good track record around here when the waters get deep.

Coaches' families, especial family members' medical issues, are off limits for trash talk........Well, except for Kiffin's bride.

Did you mean trashy attire fantasy talk?

That, and everybody gets a little defensive about their own school.
In the case of this Penn State fiasco, a lot defensive.
