Are Penn State Football’s Not-So-Dearly Departed Players Cursed?
Life hasn’t been all that great for Penn State’s not-so-dearly departed players who have left the program over the past year.
Since late last spring, about a dozen-and-a-half Nittany Lions have left the squad.
Some transferred. A handful of miscreants were shown the door, additions for Bill O’Brien by their subtraction. Some opted to give up football, but stayed at Penn State fully-scholarshipped, thanks to the NCAA.
And more than a few have hit upon bad luck.
Take these three. Please.
Since they left Happy Valley, it has been a bad spell — although the words hex, curse and whammy also come to mind — for former Nittany Lions Silas Redd, Rob Bolden and Anthony Fera, who transferred last summer with a combined 53 starts. For them, not being at Penn State physically hurt (or still does).
