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.

The only conclusions that have validity is that the problems at Un Happy Valley is caused by the water or from the stench emanating from the diseased cattle treatment area.

 I would not be surprised to see this incident be the end of his Lions career. He is not all that impressive as a player anyway. Neither is the Lions offense either. But when things go bad the truly go bad. I honestly believe Penn State will recover sooner that later atleast I hope so. Sucks to be them.

I looked up their player profiles (but not for the purposes of seeing what the race they are). I was kidding, anyhow.

Not sure Drake will have a lot of passes thrown his way next season.

McGloin needed some sense knocked into him anyways.  The program needs a new QB- I cannot watch another season of McGloin running the offense.  Matt cannot move the chains consistently and the offense becomes stagnant and boring.  Having a walk on junior QB starting f
or 2 years speaks volumes on how bad recruiting has been.
