[ESPN] “I just thought transferring to USC was a better move for me academically, socially and athletically. It was a fresh start, and you typically don’t get fresh starts too often in life. I’m sure a lot of my teammates understood, but I think some of them were uneasy about it. I hope they realize now I was just doing what was best for me. It wasn’t an easy decision, like, Hey! I’m going to USC! I sat for a whole week thinking about it.
The visit to USC, seeing how the team treated one another, that was a big part of it. Matt [Barkley], T.J. [McDonald], Marqise [Lee], all those guys and a bunch more welcomed me and showed that, “Hey, we’re pretty cool too here on the West Coast.” I’d say moving to LA was like an eight on the culture shock scale. I’m used to a New York setting, where buildings are on top of buildings. Everything is so spread out here. Everything is so much slower. I’m used to the upbeat, fast living. [Snaps fingers.] I think people here are more chill and relaxed than they are back East. And a little nicer too. Not that much nicer, but a little nicer.
I got off Twitter. A lot of my followers were the Penn State fan base, so I wasn’t going to keep it just to be hated on every day. That was tough. But I’m really happy for Penn State, where the team is now. I watch my former teammates as much as I can. It felt surreal at first, but now it’s just, like, I’m a Trojan, and they’re Nittany Lions. I still talk to other transfers like Justin Brown [Oklahoma] all the time. We just try to catch up on our shared experiences.” Full Story
Honestly, I ain’t mad at ya, Silas. We know, you know, everyone knows, that you made the wrong decision. I think that is enough punishment alone. You don’t need Penn State hating on you. Actually, I feel bad for you. Wish you stayed. Wish you became a Penn State legend.
You fumbled the ball.
You had the ball, about to score, and you fumbled it.
