Penn State Quarterback Matt McGloin Says He Didn’t Get “Punched Out,” He Was Merely Knocked Out

You know, when I watched the Penn State-Nebraska game following a week of chaos at Penn State, I said to myself: You know, myself, if I had to choose one player on that field to punch out, it would probably that bonehead quarterback who keeps underthrowing his receivers.

Between that reality and the Spencer Pratt hair seen in this video, I’d say that not only was I right in my desires, but Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin’s receivers feel the same way.

On Saturday, McGloin and wide receiver Curtis Drake got into a skirmish in which Drake reportedly knocked out McGloin… and sent him into a seizure. 

But not so fast, says McGloin.

McGloin had this to see about the incident:

"Well, I didn’t get punched out, so get your facts straight… I just told you guys what happened. 

Initially I hit my head on the ground, like I said, as we were on our way to the ground, like I said, I don't know what else I can say, it was a freak accident. I smacked my head, I don’t remember anything else. Whether or not another hit was thrown while I was on the ground or not, or what the seizure came from, maybe just hitting my head on the right spot, um, like I said, I don’t know, but I did suffer a seizure from it. Um, but, like I said, I feel pretty well right now."

 

Yeah, he got punched out. And if he didn’t, he flipped the Pussy Card on Drake for bringing up the possibility that he was hit once he was already knocked out.

Penn State Quarterback Matt McGloin Reportedly Knocked Out by Teammate

Kyle Scott - December 17, 2011

We are… knocked out?

In more unfortunate – yet unrelated – news for Penn State, quarterback Matt McGloin was knocked out by wide receiver Curtis Drake during a fight after practice today. 

Nate Bauer of Rivals.com was once again all over the story. Here's his report:

This was two players who had been jawing at practice. Not related to anything else. From source, 'It happens, but not like this.' To recap from source: 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.'

 

That report was also confirmed by Ben Jones of StateCollege.com. Students from the Daily Collegian, Penn State’s student newspaper, are tweeting that a police report was filed, too.

The Patriot News reports a slightly different story. They acknowledge the incident, but say McGloin was hospitalized for a “possible seizure." 

University police are investigating the incident and expect to release a report later tonight.

The incident is a disagreement between two football players, nothing more, but Penn State doesn’t need any more image problems right now. Having the quarterback of its football team get knocked out by a teammate is certainly not going to help anything.

  • List of speakers not yet released
  • This event is open to the public and parking will be free

Speaking of the Spectrum, that $2,500 "U" still hasn't sold on eBay.  Shocking.

Video: Hit on Austin Collie

Austin Collie gets knocked out.  The Eagles were given a penalty on the play, which eventually led to a Colts touchdown.

Jim Nantz relayed to viewers that Collie was sitting up and alert at halftime- a great sign.

Here's why it was a bad call and the league mandate is getting out of control: Watch the full speed replay around the :35 second mark.  There is no way Kurt Coleman could have slowed himself down to avoid hitting Collie.  Hits like this are, and always will be, part of the game.  The ensuing penalty cost the Eagles.

My biggest problem with the play?  The reaction of Asante Samuel upon seeing the replay.  His yelling and carrying on almost led him right into the trainers tending to Collie.  In a situation where the guy could've had a broken neck, Samuel has to show just a little bit of restraint.

More soon.  Video of the hit after the jump.
