This just in from Fight on State: Backup outside linebacker Bani Gbadyu did not make the trip to Pasadena with the team.
FightOnState.com has learned that Penn State backup linebacker Bani Gbadyu did not make the trip to Los Angeles for the Rose Bowl due to academic issues.
Academic issues, huh? As in like he's not enrolled for the spring semester? This is just speculation on my part, but a lot of times when you hear about a reserve sophomore not making the bowl trip it sometimes means they have one foot out the door. Let's hope this isn't anything big.
