Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin says he suffered a seizure and concussion after his fight with teammate Curtis Drake Saturday, but he wants to set the record straight about something else. McGloin says he was not knocked out during the fight, as previously reported. Instead, the quarterback says he slipped during the fight and hit his head, resulting in a concussion and seizure.
“I’m willing to take full responsibility — it was my fault,” McGloin told reporters. “I started it, but as a quarterback for this university, I should be held to a higher standard. It should not have happened. I should’ve walked away from it.
“It was just two guys who are emotional about the game, who got into an argument.”
Two teammates fighting is understandable — that happens sometimes. But it’s hard to know if McGloin is telling the truth or trying to cover an embarrassing story. Nobody wants to be known as the person who went to the hospital after getting knocked out by a teammate.
Here’s a video of McGloin’s comments to reporters:
