You think we have an interesting competition coming up this spring with our Q/B competition, you should be out east here in Penn State land!! Coach Paterno unbelievably decided to start a true freshman at Q/B this year Rob Bolden from Michigan. Rob got injured mid-way through the season(concusion) and Coach Paterno turned to a walk-on sophmore Matt McGloin to replace him. Here lies the problem, Q/B Bolden was cleared to play after several weeks but did not see the field except for some meaningless minutes at the end of the game. Penn State played Florida New Years day and walk-on McGloin had a bad day at the Q/B position throwing five interceptions, but finishing the game. Rob and his father thought he should have played some ssince he was the starter at the beginning of the season and he was cleared to play and it was also just a bowl game. Remember several years ago Penn State loss another Q/B Pat Devlin who transfered out of Penn State to Delaware (who by the way will be playing this evening for the FCS championship with Devlin under center). Now to the point, Rob Bolden and his father requested he be released from his scholarship,and unexpectally Coach Paterno refused to release him.My question is, can a coach refuse to release you from your scholarship and have it upheld? No we are not looking but thought it was an interesting story. No one said also where Bolden would like to play since he is from Michigan. To add to the story they have another Q/B Kevin Newsome who wants to also be released.
