A source told Jim Kleinpeter of the New Orleans Times-Picayune that former Penn State quarterback Rob Bolden has told LSU coaches that he will be transferring to Baton Rouge, and that he is expected to join the rest of the team on Wednesday for the first day of fall practice. Kleinpeter writes...

"Bolden’s presence would provide a hedge against an injury to Mettenberger on a team that is one of the favorites to get to the BCS championship game in Miami. The Tigers have a strong defense, offensive line and running game, and they could likely limp along without stellar quarterback play. Bolden would have the advantage of at least having played in big-time college settings in front of large crowds."

It won't be Boldin! I live near PSU - but an LSU fan - believe me he chokes a lot. I don't se him as a runner. In fact I think he fears carries. He is not a quick thinker nor does he recognize defenses well. His passes are not accurate at all! At all! If LSU is forced to use him anytime it will not be pretty. He was replaced by a less athletic player, McGloin, who has guts and is smarted and it stops there. Boldin is bad when it gets tough or in crucial situations.
