Penn State Players Won't Attend Big Ten Media Days After All

Why wasn't star Penn State running back Silas Redd in that group of Nittany Lions who pledged their commitment to the program this morning? Well, he was en route to Big Ten Media Days in Chicago, of course. But now plans have changed, as Penn State's contingent won't include any of the three players who were expected to go to Chicago.

Redd was a topic at Pac-12 Media Days, where USC coach Lane Kiffin all but openly begged for Redd to head to L.A.

Let speculation now run wild. Are all three of these players looking to leave? Is Bill O'Brien just protecting them from endless questions about non-football stuff? Is PSU worried about them coming into contact with rival coaches? Does Jordan Hill not speak English? These are all things that could be speculated by anyone looking to speculate.

(It's probably mainly the questions one.)
