Former Penn State QB McGloin Says Ohio State Fans Spit On Players
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Former Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin is an Oakland Raider, landing as Terrelle Pryor’s backup. The Raiders are known to have some crazy fans. According to McGloin, it’s not the first group of rowdy fans he’s seen.
McGlon, while talking to The School Philly Radio, said that Ohio State fans are disrespectful, and often times way out of line.
“[Ohio State is] a tough place to play and their fans really aren’t respectful,” McGloin said. “They don’t show respect to any opponent in there, which isn’t a good thing. You can’t compare it to Beaver Stadium, our fans are respectful towards other teams and players, things like that. When you step into Ohio State, it’s just the complete opposite. They throw things at you, and spit on you, things like that, when you head into the locker room. It really isn’t that good of a place to play. And like you said, he’s [Hackenberg] a freshman and it’s tough—and he’s going to learn from it and he’s definitely going to be a better player because of it.”
One of the highlights of Penn State’s season so far has been junior wide receiver Allen Robinson. McGloin says that Penn State fans should appreciate him now, because he may not be around much longer.
“I think so, and I mean I’m sure a lot of people will agree with me when I say this, that I think this is his last year in a Penn State uniform,” McGloin said. “I’m assuming he will declare for the [NFL] draft after the season, and rightfully so. He’s got the ability, he’s got the work ethic. I’ve been around him for a few years and I still keep in touch with him, so I know the type of person he is and seeing how the guys play at this level, and how they practice, and their talent. In terms of them, he’s right up there with some of those guys that we have right now. He’s got the whole package in there. So, as long as he keeps focus, I think he’s got a bright future.”
