Sounds like there was a fight at one of the fraternity houses last weekend and some players may have been involved. Four people were hurt and ended up in the hospital but it sounds like the injuries were all pretty minor. Not clear who was involved yet.

Seems this happens every few years. We had the infamous RJ Luke "we're football, let us in" fight back in 2000 or 2001. And, then there was the apartment brawl after some guy didn't like Anthony Scirrotto trying to pick up his girlfriend in 2008. That was was egregiously stupid because Scirrotto followed the guy back to his place, called a bunch of his teammates, and then they tried to force themselves in and a melee ensued. They were lucky they got away with a scrap on the wrist. And, now there is whatever may have happened here.

Hard to believe that apartment fight was almost 11 years ago. Have we had a real player incident since then?
Is it baseball season yet?

Cam Sullivan-Brown has withdrawn his name from the transfer portal. So, that's good news.

I'm sure he'll do great dropping passes in Eugene.
If at first you don't succeed, give up. There is no hope for you.

BWI had a feature on WR drop rates last year - to no one's here's surprise PSU's was among worst in nation and about double teams like OSU, Bama, Clemson - JJ, Polk, Thompkins, Hippenhaimer had rates above average and 3-4X rate of other top teams front line guys.

Hence 1st year WR coach not being the current 2nd year receiving coach. They killed McS.

Thompkins ran a 4.33 - 40 at the pro day. Several other guys had great 40 times - was mostly guys who didn't do combine running for time. Hopefully some of these guys get a FA look but it seems PSU does a really good job prepping guys to show out on for these events.

As an aside - Saquon went back to campus to support his former teammates - and where did the freshly minted millionaire / ROY stay - he slept on Koa Farmer's couch. Awesome to see the team has that kind of bond.
