Quarterback Matt McGloin Will Stay At Penn State

Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin will stick around for the Nittany Lions, despite a long list of penalties from the NCAA that hit the football program hard. McGloin announced the news on Tuesday via Twitter.

In addition to reaffirming his commitment, the fifth-year senior also took a swipe at the NCAA. His statement read:

If I have learned anything from this game, it is: "tough times don't last, tough people do." This program has been through some hard times. I and many others, have stayed here out of love for this university; its academic programs, teammates, our wonderful fans and tremendous student body. We, as student-athletes, are being punished for going to class, graduating, being involved in the community and playing football. Even though these penalties are extremely harsh, I am a Nittany Lion and will remain one. I believe in the core values I have learned in this program. It is not Nittany Lion Football. It is Nittany Lion family. I encourage all players, recruits, and supporters to stay committed to the greatest football program in America. Scholarships and bowl games cannot destroy the fabric of our family. Coach O'Brien and his staff will lead us through this difficult time. All I ask is for the fans to continue to believe in us. WE ARE!
