RobBolden e1343781905278 Ex Penn State quarterback Rob Bolden told LSU hes coming transfer season Rob Bolden Playbook Penn State Nittany Lions LSU Tigers Les Miles college football Bill OBrien 2012 The LSU Tigers will report to practice tomorrow on their quest to win another SEC Championship and they’ll be doing so with former Penn State quarterback Rob Bolden. Bolden, who asked for a release from Joe Paterno last year and was told no, was granted a release by Bill O’Brien this season.

I know that there are LSU fans out there that see this as a possible problem, a controversy, the same situation that LSU suffered from last season, but they shouldn’t worry. This is 100% Zach Mettenberger’s team. But, as I stated on Monday, behind Mettenberger there is no depth. Rob Bolden is a solid backup for LSU and the best option they have this late in the game. Bolden is actually a gift for the Tigers. Should Mettenberger go down or start to have problems, on the field, Bolden has already played in 20 games and he started 16 of those. That’s 15 more games than Mettenberger and 20 more than Stephen Rivers, who is Mettenberger’s current backup. Not to mention, those 5 games Mettenberger played in last season netted him a total of 13 plays (1 TD).

Yes, as crazy as it may sound, Les Miles knows what he’s doing.

We also know that Les Miles wants to “help those guys” at Penn State because they deserve a shot, which they do.

Also, here’s a stack of the coaches playbooks. That’s a lot of zone-read option right there.

The 10 Most Embarrassing Moments In NCAA History

We all love to see the embarrassing “Not Top 10″ plays where a player, say, picks up a football and runs it into the wrong endzone. It’s lighthearted fun that no doubt leaves the player feeling a bit sheepish for a little while. But sometimes, sports programs find themselves embroiled in much deeper, much more disgraceful scenarios of their own design. These highly public embarrassments...
