There hasn't exactly been a lot of good news about the Penn State football program in recent months, and the program got a bit more on Saturday. There are multiple reports coming out of State College that quarterback Matt McGloin got into a fight with receiver Curtis Drake following practice on Saturday. A fight that ended with McGloin being knocked out cold.

The details of what happened or what caused the fight are still sketchy at this point, but apparently there was a heated exchange during practice, and when Drake approached McGloin in the locker room after practice, things went downhill. Police were called to the scene to investigate afterward.

Making things even scarier, McGloin's father told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that his son suffered a seizure and a possible concussion. McGloin was treated at Mount Nittany Medical Center and has since returned home.

Penn State is scheduled to play Houston in the Ticketcity Bowl on January 2nd.

Here's the official statement released by Penn State, in full:

Penn State Police were called to the football locker room this afternoon to investigate a report of a fight between two members of the Nittany Lions football team -- Matt McGloin and Curtis Drake -- after they finished practice.

McGloin was taken to Mount Nittany Medical Center where he was examined, treated and released.

Campus police and Penn State's Office of Judicial Affairs will investigate the incident and report results as they would for any other student involved in an incident on campus.

Usually drilling the starting QB in the face is off limits, PSU is out of control.  Who would want to coach this team, or how can they get top recruits...darks days ahead for Penn State. 
Maybe JoePa will say he never saw the QB get concussed and therefore it never happened.

Terrier-

That was a low blow and completely inaccurate. 

Penn St. is now confirming that the fight had nothing to do with football, it was a result of the two young men arguing over who got what Penn St. calls the 'golden nozzle'.  It's the one closest to Uncle Jerry and usually means a lot of horse play... which in the rest of the world is called the abuse of children and requires an immediate call to the authorities so the accused can be arrested.

If Coach Sandusky were there, he would just soap up their weiners and tell them to rub them together while he supervised. Then he would tell them " now thats what I call horseplay ". ...and the bonus of the lesson would be they were taught proper hygiene.

It's my understanding that those who saw this occur in the locker room went home and called their dads and told them about it, but they didn't break it up.  Curtis Drake said he was just horsing around.

Are you retarded ? What kind of statement is that ?" Let the SEC recruit the scum where they don't need an education to attend college." You seem to be the only one wasting oxygen. Another SEC hater are you ! You guys are sick and that kind of dribble is getting old. These are very young men who are learning to deal with things under the heat of battle. Have you ever lost your temper in the heat of battle ? Probably not . You're one of those who have never been to war and stand on the sidelines and bitch.Laughing
