Tom o'brien

So because thou art lukewarm, neither hot, nor cold, I will spew thee from My mouth. -Revelation 3:16

Tom O'Brien, the as-yet-unfired head football coach at NC State University, has throughout his career helmed teams that strategically have attempted to imitate the slow strangulation of a pig by a python with their offenses, and a seemingly endless succession of 7-5 or 8-4 records. This obvious fondness for the blandest possible offensive game planning has spawned a series of related jokes, premised upon the idea that Coach O'Brien prefers that all things which interact with his life be similarly bland.
