Found July 30, 2012 on Players View:

The recent hammer that has rocked Penn State’s football program has yet to result in the forecasted roster purge.

Programs such as the University of Georgia wondered out loud what it would be like to pluck select choice players from a vulnerable situation and bring them into their own nest.

Those moves have yet to be made and a large chunk of the team has committed to stay onboard; sanctions be damned.

The first cracks in a united front that has decided to go to war with coach Bill O’Brien are starting to show.

Penn State RB headed to USC

After days of deliberation, Penn State's leading rusher from last season, Silas Redd, will leave Happy Valley to join Lane Kiffin and crew out West. 

Silas Redd Deleted His Twitter Account

Silas Redd (@MomentOfSilas25) has reportedly deleted his twitter account. This can’t be a good sign for Penn State, as it now looks like he is USC bound. After all, the RB would probably want to avoid looking at his mentions at all cost after announcing a transfer. Thanks to “The Herd” for the tip this morning.  

Silas Redd’s Wikipedia page may not be accurate

I could very well be mistaken here but I’m pretty sure that Penn State running back Silas Redd’s Wikipedia page may contain some errors. The Penn State back is currently being recruited by USC Trojan Head Coach Lane Kiffin. On Wikipedia, his team already lists him as a Trojan. Here is the first sentence to give you an idea: Silas Redd (born March 1, 1992) is an American footballrunning...

Done Deal: Silas Redd Transfers From Penn State To USC

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Running back Silas Redd, who ran for 1,241 yards and seven touchdowns last season for Penn State, is transferring to USC. Redd is the highest-profile student athlete to transfer from Penn State in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. On Monday, backup safety Tim Buckley became the first Penn State football player to transfer when he went to...

Redd Makes Move to the Men of Troy

Ever since the sanctions handed down by the NCAA just over a week ago there's been a lot of speculation as to who may go and who may stay at Penn State, but no one drew as much attention as Junior running back Silas Redd. The junior running back was clearly the star of the offense for the 2012 Nittany Lions, rushing for over 1,200 yards in 2011. Today he made the rumored...

Say It Ain’t So, Silas…Say It Ain’t So

What’s blue and white, and no longer Redd all over? Ouch. *Pulls knife out of heart. Silas Redd transferred to USC yesterday, a heart-breaker for Penn State. However, it was a tough decision for Silas and I don’t fault him for leaving. Look, how often does a star player get the chance to just switch to another major college football powerhouse in the middle of his career with...

Penn State RB Silas Redd to transfer to USC

Depth at running back was a huge concern for USC entering the 2012 season. On Tuesday, the Trojans got a little deeper. Penn State running back Silas Redd has announced his intention to transfer to USC as first reported by The Petros and Money Show on FOX Sports Radio last Thursday. Redd, who will be a junior in the fall and has two years of eligibility remaining, rushed for...

Penn State players defecting en masse

Four Penn State players are gone. Redshirt safety Tim Buckley transferred to NC State. He was the first. Then came star tailback Silas Redd who rushed for over 1200 yards last year. He’s now a USC Trojan. Junior TE Kevin Haplea is expected to transfer to Florida State. Only had 3 catches, and 1 TD but was an integral part of their blocking scheme. QB Rob Bolden is transferring...

College Football Updates

College Football Updates By How will the Penn State scandal and other top stories affect the college football picks for the up-coming season? The NCAA had considered giving the Nittany Lions a four-year death penalty, but once the school found out they held emergency meetings with the committee to come to a different conclusion. In the end, the punishments were still...

Life after sanctions for Penn State, Jordan Hill and company

Defensive tackle Jordan Hill is arguably the best player on the current Penn State team (assuming Silas Redd leaves like he’s rumored to be doing so). Hill was at Big Ten Media Day, so I asked him other than wins how does this team heal? “Being together, being through this.  Going out and just playing football. You know if we just sat there and gave up, we would regret it for...

Big Tentacles: Silas Redd transfers, Tommy Rees suspended, Mark Dantonio, and more.

(Big Tentacles is the SWRT look at the Big Ten, its sway over the college football landscape and that school in South Bend it not-so-secretly covets.) Taking the Redd-Eye flight out of town. Penn State running back Silas Redd is transferring to USC. (ESPN) We will get by. We will survive. Around 4,500 Penn State fans showed their  support for the banhamered football...
