Kevin Newsome doesn't travel to Tampa with PSU

Remember a few weeks ago when there were rumors that Penn State quarterback Kevin Newsome was likely going to transfer rather than return to compete with Matt McGloin and Robert Bolden?  Yeah, well, they have a bit more credence now.

According to a report in The Patriot News, Newsome did not accompany the team on its trip to Tampa.
Two sources close to the Penn State football program told The Patriot-News earlier today that reserve quarterback Kevin Newsome did not make the trip to Florida for Penn State's Jan. 1 Outback Bowl game with Florida in Tampa.
The news hardly qualifies as a surprise. Earlier this month, there were internet reports that Newsome, the No. 3 quarterback behind starter Matt McGloin and backup Rob Bolden, was unhappy with his role and considering a transfer.

Those don't sound like the actions of a player who plans on returning and fighting for a job next season.  The rumors started earlier in the month when Joe Paterno said during the Outback Bowl media days that he couldn't be sure whether or not Newsome would be returning next season.  Which, makes sense for Newsome, because considering everything that's happened at quarterback in State College this season, it seems pretty clear that Newsome isn't the quarterback of the future.

So if he wants to see the field while he still has any eligibility, he's going to have to move on.

if pitt's new coach had any smarts he should go after this kid...boldin is going to be a star and mcgrowin will accept a backup role for his career...kevin newsome is a very talented qb better than anything else pitt has.
