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.

So the police get called for a fight between two teammates in the locker room, but no one thinks to call them after a Sandusky is caught with a young boy in the shower.  Seems like they have their priorities straight.

More troubling news coming from "Not So" Happy Valley.  I guess that is why they have no top 150 recruits heading that way with the incoming class.

The wide receiver, in the Lasch Building, with a fist. I won!

Wish we could go back to the old days when incidents of this nature were handled internally.
Yeah, like how PSU handled that whole Sandusky thing internally.  That went really well, didn't it?  Hiding things behind closed doors is usually a bad idea, and PSU has shown that to be the case in spades.  If McGloin doesn't go to a hospital as a result of this little disagreement, it's highly unlikely we hear anything about.  But you've got to figure PSU is pretty sensitive now about trying to hide anything of that significance from the press.

if i were one of the receivers for PSU i would knock his @$$ out also. my grandmother throws a better ball than him. how he got a scholarship for athletics is beyond me... then again this is the same program that let a known child molester use their facilities for his sick and twisted use.

Wish we could go back to the old days when incidents of this nature were handled internally.  Certainly, things happen in sports that demand public attention and scrutiny.  This is not one of them.  Let them figure it out and move on.  The fact that this story has now broken on every social media network has now made it a national issue instead of a lockerroom issue

Wow. Pretty embarrassing for McGloin. Drake is a WR, and only goes about a buck seventy soaking wet.

Guess someone forgot to tell that wideout that if you knock out your QB you probably won't see any ball go your way EVER.
