Penn State wide receiver Curtis Drake apparently beat up starting quarterback Matt McGloin after practice today – with McGloin then going to the hospital after a possible seizure, according to his dad.
The university issued the following statement:
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – 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 university should hardly be surprised. This is the third time the police have been called to the aftermath of a Curtis Drake fight.
McGloin, for his part, quickly took to Twitter to issue denials:
Or did he?
Well, we just don’t know what to make of all this – what with the honesty, transparency and clarity surrounding this football program.
They are a little confused at Bodog, too. The game has been taken down for the time being:
In the midst of this breaking story, the “Official Twitter for Penn State Football” took time to congratulate Penn State’s graduates.
It’s a nice thought and certainly something that should be celebrated. They just look silly in my Penn State Twitter stream, given the university’s well deserved “nothing to see here” approach to life over the last 15 years or so.
The program is in shambles, and it is only getting worse.
