That doesn't mean he still doesn't have Penn State in his heart.
Brown was among the players who left Penn State in the wake of NCAA sanctions leveled after the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal.

Los Angeles Clippers superstar Blake Griffin recently visited a University of Oklahoma basketball practice, as he of course played college basketball there. And at the practice, Oklahoma's Buddy Hield claimed that he could block a Griffin dunk attempt. So, I think it's safe to say that Hield is a complete moron (kidding).
Anyway, Griffin accepted Hield's challenge...
NORMAN, Okla. — The Sooners averaged just 4.5 yards per rush last year, ranking just amongst the middle of the pack in the Big 12, and so the offensive line came into the offseason with a focus on that.
