As if Penn State didn’t already have enough issues between the Jerry Sandusky scandal and the search for a new coach, we now have this. Reports say quarterback Matt McGloin was knocked out by wide receiver Curtis Drake when the two fought after practice Saturday.
Penn State Rivals reporter Nate Bauer recapped what he was told.
“Drake/McGloin jawing in practice, Drake initiates making amends in locker room, McGloin takes exception…McGloin punch/shove (unclear), Drake takes him to floor, pop to the chin, McGloin ‘lights out.’”
Ron Musselman of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says police were called after the fight. Kicker Anthony Fera reportedly confirmed that a fight took place. The players also held a meeting after practice, but McGloin reportedly was not part of it. The Patriot-News says he was taken to a hospital to be checked for a possible seizure.
