Penn State Scandal: Matt McGloin Staying With Nittany Lions

One man who will not be leaving the Penn State campus is Matt McGloin. The Nittany Lions quarterback announced via twitter that he doesn't intend to play football anywhere else this fall, reaffirming his commitment to the school, according to The Washington Post.

"I am a Nittany Lion and will remain one." he also tweeted. "I believe in the core values I have learned in this program. It is not Nittany Lion Football. It is Nittany Lion family."

McGloin has had a maligned career at Penn State, low-lighted by his missing of the Outback Bowl last season thanks to a concussion he suffered in a scuffle with a teammate.

Head coach Bill O'Brien came out earlier in the year and said McGloin will be the starting quarterback, perhaps something McGloin doesn't think he could expect to be at many other large programs with the season so close.

In 2011, the former walk-on only completed 54 percent of his passes.
