Here are some snippets from Bill O'Brien's Tuesday press conference, from GOPSUSports.com:
On the injuries:
"Ryan Keiser is still questionable for the game. We're hoping to have him, but we'll know more probably by the end of the day tomorrow. We feel good about it, but I would say he's still questionable. Right now, Brandon Felder is full go for the game. Allen Robinson will be ready for the game."
On the team's mindset:
"We've moved on from Indiana. We're focused on Michigan. Our guys are very, very excited about the opportunity they have Saturday night against a great Michigan team, a 5 0 team coming in here, 108,000 fans. Our guys are very focused on Michigan, learning the game plan, studying Michigan and our guys are going to show up and play hard on Saturday night."
On Michigan QB Devin Gardner:
"He's a dangerous guy because he can run and throw, and there's a number of guys like that in this conference. I think the thing you've got to try to do is really try to keep him in the pocket. When he gets out of the pocket, he's very dangerous. Very dangerous. The other thing about Devin Gardner, from being around him at the Big Ten media day, he's a great kid, just a really nice kid who represents Michigan really well, and it's going to be a big challenge playing against him."
On Penn State's turnover margin:
"We do a lot of drills on that and coach it up, and whether it's ball drills, interception drills, strip drills, fumble recovery drills, blocked punt drills, we drill it, and we need to do a better job in that area, no doubt about it."
On the atmosphere he expects for Saturday:
"I mean, Penn State Michigan, ESPN, 5 o'clock, 108,000. We've got Nittanyville going crazy over here. I think it would be crazy to think this is just another game. I think this is a great opportunity for our team. Our kids are really excited. I love this time of year personally because the weather changes, it gets a little colder. It just reminds you of football, Big Ten football. This is a Big Ten game. It's a big game, and our kids are very excited about it. So we know it's a big rivalry and a big game."
