Video: Penn State's Bill O'Brien on loud speaker

Penn State introduced a pretty cool wrinkle to its Blue-White Spring Game on Saturday afternoon at Beaver Stadium. Early in the third quarter, head coach Bill O’Brien called the team’s plays over the PA system, for all the fans to hear.

Among the highlights of O’Brien’s time speaking to the crowd was when he joked with players that “I’m on the loud speaker now, don’t make me yell at you.”

O’Brien also led the crowd in “We Are!” chants and praised the Penn State student section. The coach ended his time on the loud speaker by saying, “OK, thank you fans, we’ll see you in the fall.”
