04:54 PM ET 01.03 | Penn State coach Bill O'Brien is a popular name in NFL coaching rumors. Reports have had him just about ready to go and hoping for an Eagles offer. Jason La Canfora speculated on Cleveland radio that O'Brien could work his way out of Penn State despite that big buyout, but La Canfora's comments were passed around the internet Thursday as if they were a rock-solid report O'Brien is gone. Take a listen for yourself, beginning around the 6:00 mark.

Going undefeated in the B10 is not something that screams "we are the champions" of the whole football world.

Let me have my moment I promise to be brief.

LOL. I will give it to you. At least you won all your games. But I went back and looked and the combined winning percentage of your schedule was .477. Yikes. Don't believe any of them won their bowls games either. but hell in another world you guys would have played in the CCG and possibly the NCG if you had been eligible. Your record and schedule relative to the chumps that are playing in the NCG is comparable.

The Spartans won their bowl game, by the exact same score that they lost by to tOSU, 17 - 16.

Easy not to lose a bowl game when you're not playing in a bowl game!

I am just trolling. Seriously we are not a top 5 team, but after watching some of these other top five teams play I don't know who the hell the top 5 is?
