Last night Penn State was featured on ESPN's Training Days, a look inside Bill O'Brien's second summer camp in preparation for the 2013 season.
It was awesome. I was glued to the TV for the entire hour. The show was highly anticipated because Penn State has never been involved in anything like this before. Joe Paterno was against any intrusions into his camps and I believe that it caused a disconnect between the fans and his teams.
Bill O'Brien is trying to re-create the program at Penn State and this was a huge step in that direction. The show aired on national TV on ESPN's flag ship station in primetime on a day where there were no other major sporting events or news. I haven't seen the official ratings for the show, but when your mother and your sisters are going out of their way to watch it you know it is going to preform well.no comments
