Joe, maybe it's time to second guess it a little more. You played a flash in the pan walk on, and now you're losing one, or maybe two, great young prospects. All for a below average season. Great call.

I can't blame JoePa for the decision to start McGloin, but I do question why he didn't put Bolden in at some point. I don't believe Bolden has what is needed to be a starter just yet. In the games he played, he didn't look commanding, and now the story about his desire to transfer brings his leadership into question. Leaders don't run from a challenge, like Bolden is doing, they fight for what they want. All in all, if we go into 2011 (yes, it's the 2011 campaign, not the 2010 campaign - check your calendar) with McGloin and Jones I still have high expectations. All along, I believed that Jones would be lining up under center in 2011 with Bolden as a backup.

Not playing Bolden at all was a huge mistake, especially with McGloin struggling. You basically made the kid feel like he wasn't part of the team and that McGloin stinking up the place was better than Bolden. My Pappy always said, "Go where you are loved." It's good advice. PSU football is in turmoil right now, and I don't see it ending until a change at the top. Not winning the bowl game added a lot of fuel to the fire.

PSU has now created a PR nightmare for itself. Why they didn't put Bolden in for a series is beyond me. Can't blame the kid for being PO'ed. 7-6 team, toilet bowl loss with a QB throwing 5 INTs, 84 year old senile coach. They pulled Bolden out after 1 bad series in a season game and never put him back in. Meanwhile, McGloin can screw up time after time and he stays in. If this is PSU's QB development strategy, Bolden is correct in leaving (at all cost).

Its all about attitude and Bolden has shown none! his attitude has only been to get exposure for the pro scouts!
