Matt McGloin Named Starting Quarterback

Penn State football fans won’t have to wait until the week before the first game to find out who their quarterback is, as has been customary for the past couple seasons. Bill O’Brien promised on the Coaches Caravan tour that he would name a starting quarterback soon, and he kept his word today by announcing that Matt McGloin would be the first player off the bus on September 1 against Ohio.

O’Brien made the announcement to the media at today’s Coaches vs. Cancer annual golf tournament. Additionally, O’Brien announced that Paul Jones would be number two on the depth chart, followed by Rob Bolden, who despite rumors is back on campus with the team.

O’Brien also announced that cornerback Curtis Drake has been kicked off the team and will not have a chance to return. Drake has dealt with a barrage of legal and academic problems during his time at Penn State, including a locker room fight with McGloin before the bowl game last season.

McGloin has certainly been a polarizing figure for Penn State football fans since he assumed the starting role from a struggling Bolden two years ago. But it certainly is nice to know who will be taking the first-team snaps in June for a change instead of finding out on August 31.
