Bill O'Brien must have left his house this morning saying, "Thank, God.  It's finally here."

O'Brien said, "I got here at about 4:45 am.  I couldn't wait.  I couldn't sleep last night.  I couldn't wait to start practice and I think our whole staff was here before me.  I think I was the last one to arrive.  Our staff was here at 4:30 am, so they're going to be busting my chops (later)."

Penn State opened up practice today minus eight players that were a part of the roster three weeks ago.

Asked to state the exact number of scholarship players on the roster, O'Brien said, "Uh, I don't know."

Presumably, quarterbacks coach Charlie Fisher installed the, "White 80, White 80, set hut" cadence during position meetings.  It's safe to say O'Brien is comfortable with that cadence considering Tom Brady rarely departed from it.

No word yet on when the Patriots' staple, tight red zone direct snap to the tailback, will be installed.  My guess....Day 4.

Here are some highlights of practice:
