New England Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien agreed last night to take the head coaching job at Penn State. O'Brien, like Joe Paterno, graduated from Brown and has since coached at Georgia Tech, Maryland, and Duke. He's never before had a head coaching job and ran the Patriots' offense for only one year. Maybe no one really wanted the Penn State job—given the alleged child rape and coverup there—but even then O'Brien seems a weird choice.
Then we realized: he has a hole in his chin. It might endow him with magic powers. What do you think? Do you know anything about how Bill O'Brien got this hole in his chin? What he uses it for? Is it a dimple, or is he up to something more sinister? To our eyes, it looks a centimeter deep, but it could be deeper. Please let us know if you know something.
