"[The team] ran very basic sets," one observer said. "It was all normal stuff with no scrimmaging or anything. The scheme was pretty simple — a few runs and a few passes, but simple plays."
As another observer said, "Does anyone really expect [the coaches] to preview the meat of the offensive scheme for the Big Ten Network? I am actually surprised the cameras were let in, but that is part of the deal with the channel."
Observers indicated that both Daryll Clark and Pat Devlin got first-team reps for the cameras, "but who knowns how they will  it down? It'll be interesting to see what hits the cutting room floor. I am sure a lot of [fans] will over-analyze every frame."
The players were not the only ones performing for the BTN cameras. A couple of the coaches were hammin' it up, too.
As one observer explained, "Yeah [Joe] Paterno was screaming at everyone — really playing up for the cameras. He's clearly trying to show the viewers he's involved and in control."
Another coach who "turned it on" was Bill Kenney. "Kenney was coaching everyone — regardless of their position — which was pretty funny to see," an observer said. Another pointed out that Kenney is one of the more demonstrative assistants at PSU when it comes to on-field coaching, so he may have simply been trying to make sure no players appeared to be dogging it with the cameras around.
