Will PSU have a QB for their bowl?
Really Bolden? Stealing Gatorade? There must be an unlimited supply of free gatorade for the football team. That's just beyond stupid.
It IS Bolden we're talking about here.
Back in my day (early 90s), the basketball locker room in Crisler used to have gatorade flowing through the water fountain! It was available 24-7. I can't imagine its not the same at the PSU facilities. Man, people are strange.
Maybe Bolden just thought that since Gatorade is free within the program's facilities, it was free everywhere in State College. There isn't much more than a 15-watt bulb "up there," either way.
They have three other quarterbacks on their roster.
PSU is completely unraveling. Sad to see.
Am I a horrible person because I don't think it is sad at all? I mean it's sad in a pathetic way; not in a I am going to cry for them sort of way.
No, what's sad is coering up child abuse. what's happening to them on the football field is funny.
Bolden busted for stealing Gatorade? He must not be too bright.
to adjust to the fact that Joe Pa doesn't run the campus or local PD any longer.
"...You mean I have to pay now???" His future may be in Columbus.
You can come back from a concussion in two weeks, so McGloin will start. The question is for backup quarterback.
Severity, recovery, etc.
It was reported on the TV that he didn't just have a concussion, but went to the hospital due to siezure symptoms from a hit to the head. For his sake I hope he sits until they're sure he's okay.
Sydney Crosby (and Lee Corso) say "not so fast, my friend!"
If the reports are true that he suffered seizure's as a result, recovery might not be so quick.
Sure you can come back in two weeks. At ND you can come back after the half. However the medical people really studying this issue are saying more and more that it should be more like 6 weeks, or 2 months.
make a quick transfer??
The question is: Will he be academically eligible for a bowl game?
They'll prob just run the ball 65 times and
Curl up in the fetal position and cry.
Magnus's spiel about how we need more than three scholarship QBs is taking on a whole new meaning. That I'm saying our guys will get caught stealing or brawling, but still...troublesome.
YEAH!!! I'm not just some crazy loon. I'm a crazy loon with a rational fear of Russell Bellomy stealing Gatorade.
well, sure. He's a fellow Texan. Banditry is in our blood.
I guess I would say, rather, that this emphasises you never know what can happen. If someone told me Bolden would "prank" steal gatorade, I probably would have thought that was far-fetched too.
Being right doesn't mean you aren't also a crazy loon.
Besides, Russell Bellomy is too bright to steal Gatorade. If anything, he's more of a Rudy-style stock scheme kind of guy. #TheMichiganDifference
I don't think it's irrational at all. One extreme example is Memphis's 2005 football season. All three scholarship QB's suffered a broken leg (two of them in the same game!) by mid-October of that season. They moved a WR to QB and snuck into some low level bowl game if I recall correctly.
They got this far without an offense, why should the bowl be any different.
But srsly... has any program fallen as far, as fast? Miami (YTM) had "issues" for generations, so the "10 of 10" story this summer wasn't really that surprising. tSIO is getting a slap on the write plus Urbie, so they haven't fallen. Other teams have fallen due to bad coaches and recruiting etc. (Volunteers come to mind, and, er, us)... but its not just about a team, their REPUTATION has been crushed. AND the team is unraveling. WOW.
Reall wish it wasn't a B1G team, then I could enjoy watching the trainwreck. But I can't.
if Penn State didn't have a quarterback and played in a bowl game, would they not move the ball?
Time to initiate the wildcat!
Seriously though, Gatorade? Really? Penn State is in serious need of someone to turn that ship around.
stealing Gatorade? wouldnt u think they have Gatorade at the football facilities?
Not only that, but football players have meal plans at residence halls and usally have stipends for food places around campus too.
well, that or idiocy.
According to ESPN, Bolden's act was a "prank" and, while he will be disciplined, he will not miss any playing time.
Nothing here. It was just horse play.
Gene Smith, Ohio AD, says trading memorabilia for tatoos, getting cars for little or no money, and lying to the NCAA are all "pranks" that Columbus, OH denizens laugh about year 'round.
It's actually kind of weird, their fourth (or technically third) string QB is named McGregor.
How the hell do you get McGloin and McGregor to both be walk on quarterbacks? That's awesome.
I'd be more impressed if it was McFili or McKili, or McThorin-Oakenshield.
But, seriously, Scranton, Pennsylvania. That's how you get McGloin and McGregor.
Charlie Weis could be McBombur!
Their offense functions more like it's run by MacGruber.
He just started signing Mc's and couldn't remember which one he wanted.
a Southern Comfort bender, the only thing that matters is the closest gatorade, not the free-est. YMMV
My dog would SO throw that monkey.
Random sprints/stops from an 80 pound dog = flying monkey!
Not good for my Pick-Six...
They played the whole year without a QB..
Isn't their entire coaching staff in some sort of legal trouble as well?
Will PSU have any commitments come February?
Yes. But not the ones that you think.
/cryptic MGoObes homage
Prank my arse...he wasn't allowed to leave last season...my suspicion is he's hoping to get booted from the team and all the chaos going on there by breaking team rules/policy. Stealing gatorade isn't enough for other schools to rule out picking you up. Just my lame theory.
...that demonstrate the value of a four or five-QB system. Imagine being the first team to have that invaluable "third down quarterback".
I actually put Penn State to win and I didn't even realize it. Oh well, I got 2 out of the first 3 games wrong anyway and had 17 and 33 points on them (yes I did my picks at the last minute). I'm pretty much guarunteed to not win anything now anyway.
If you're in the Yahoo pool you can change your picks right up til gametime
Gatorade doesn't cost that much, does it?
We managed to find an 8-pack of the fruit punch flavored G2 for $5.99, so it can't be all that much individually. Still, this is Rob Bolden, and if he was going to steal effectively, the offensive line really needs to give him more time.
One of my daugthers has seizure disorder. After her first seizure, at age 15, we were told not to worry unless she had others. A single seizure, especially one seemingly brought on by a hard knock to the head or some other unusual circumstance, is not really something that would be considered a serious health issue (Unless the knock on the head did damage--thus the MRI McGloin had to rule out that possibility). One of the doctors, in an attempt to ease our fears, even said the first seizure is a freebie. It's considered an anomaly that might never occur again. It's not until there's a second seizure that they'll start with medication and further testing.
Definitely picking Houston now.
Couldn't imagine that happening at Michigan, I mean the starting QB and WR grappling in the locker room. McGloin probably learned a lesson that he shouldn't fight with his teammates, because he'll more than likely lose.
