[ESPN] After years as a diehard Penn Stater, Adam Taliaferro quietly has followed a second college football team this season. Watching a fellow Nittany Lion. Watching Sooners wide receiver Justin Brown. “It was hard for a lot of Penn Staters to understand,” said Taliaferro, an attorney who played defensive back for coach Joe Paterno, defied odds to overcome a career-ending spinal cord injury, and in the spring overwhelmingly was elected to the Penn State Board of Trustees. “But Justin is still part of the Penn State family.”… ”I don’t think he wanted to leave Penn State,” Sooners receivers coach Jay Norvell said. “He would not have left for anywhere else than here and the opportunity here. He loved Penn State and he still loves Penn State. And he loves his teammates there. I don’t think he was getting out. I just think he really wanted the opportunity to play at Oklahoma, to play in our offense, to play with a quarterback like Landry Jones.”…Still every Saturday, Brown still has an eye cast toward State College. He hurt with his former team when they lost heartbreakers to Ohio and Virginia early in the season. He was pumped last weekend when they beat Purdue to move to 6-3. “I miss my teammates, my friends there. I mean, I was there for three years,” Brown confessed. “But I think I did what was best for me and my family at that time. I’m not going to go back and say I wish I had done this or I should have done this. You can’t live life like that. You can’t live life with regrets. Once that opportunity was put on the table, I knew I was going to have to make a tough decision either way.” …“Penn State is always going to be Penn State,” Brown said. “That university is still going to be a good university. They have great academics and a great campus. “They won’t let what happened and what one man did bring the whole university down.”
Translation: “Oklahoma sucks. Penn State is the bomb titties. I fu*ked up.”
You can’t tell me for one second that JB doesn’t 100% regret this decision. McGloin putting up all-conference numbers, Allen Robinson about to break school records, team playing really well, town still going just as crazy (if not crazier than they were before). The classic “not going to go back and wish I would have done this…” says all you need to hear. He messed up. Plain and simple. My man clearly underestimated the power of the butt-chin.
