@Moisturize -- BLUF: Bolden had no chance to catch and prevent himself from landing on Cook because of Conklin's push and Morgan knocking his arm away.
If you watch the clip again, you'll see that as Bolden is going to the ground, after Conklin PUSHES him, Bolden's left arm is swiped by Morgan going by; thus, he us unable to extend his arm and prevent himself from landing on, or minimizing contact with, Cook.
I reviewed it several times after reading your post and I don't see the plausibility of Conklin's "substantial right-arm force" AWAY from Cook. He quite literally was pushing Bolden to the right; arguably, he didn't care that Cook was there -- Conklin was determined to win this blocking battle. And the force of the push was to Conklin's right ... where Cook was sliding. It certainly wasn't AWAY from Cook ... it was toward him.
Being pushed like that by a O-lineman alone should eliminate "intent"; add the fact that Bolden is now "defenseless" because Morgan (unintentionally) knocked his left arm away creates a second reason to eliminate "intent". Thus, the rule of "when in doubt" is reduced to "there is no doubt"; Bolden did NOT intend to target Cook.
When in doubt, Go Blue!!!

I'm curious to know the source of the "Official Maize" in the poll; because, as user Rasmus ponted out, the school officially lists:
R255/G204/B51 // Hex FFCC33 // Pantone 7406C (dark Maize)
R246/G213/B101 // Hex F6D565 (light Maize)
I like, and chose, FFCB05, but FFCB19 is closer (by RGB settings) to what the school says is the official Maize.
Does the Athletic Department, or football in particular, have different standards than the rest of the university?
Just curious ... Go Blue!!!

My oldest daughter has a common name with a unique spelling. It was tweaked to include my wife's maiden name. My youngest has a very common, not so unique name, but the nickname/shortened version throws everyone for a loop. They want to add letters to the short version. Don't know why it's so difficult, it removes three letters ... why add letters when you're trying to shorten it?!
My childhood best friend named his daughter Hailey Victoria -- best part was his in-laws are from the worst state ever, and when the daughter was born and the name revealed, the mother-in-law loved the name ... until she asked how they came up with it. After that it was, "the dumbest thing" she had ever heard.
Oh, and for good measure, I have a female dog named Maizey Blue. She's a shithead, but other than that she's a good dog.

Stafford, Virginia, Friday. I've seen on the mgoblue.com pages (http://www.mgoblue.com/sports/m-footbl/spec-rel/fbl-spring-game-2015.html) that Pioneer will be open for parking @ $20 for cars/$50 for RVs. The question is, will there be any shuttles running, like from Briarwood or anywhere else? I realize this is the Spring game, so chances are low -- it's not a season game after all -- but I am still curious. Thanks -- Go Blue!!!

Living not too far north of Richmond, VA, I have some perspective -- albeit minor. I only paid attention 'cause the H.S. my kids go to is in the same playoff division. Green's school played (exceptionally) well against league opponents. Yes, they pretty much blew out the competition, with their only loss this season coming to LC Bird H.S. by a score of 24-20 in the opening round of the playoffs(LC Bird went on to be state champs in their division) . Green had two rushing TDs in the game, on 19 carries for 79 yds. In the end, Hermitage was #9 in Virginia, five spots ahead of CD Hylton -- and former UM recruit EJ Levenberry. I can't speak to any history of the Hermitage program.
