As we all kind of knew would happen in our brain of brains, Matt McGloin, the Irish scrapper from Scranton, has been tabbed today by Penn State head football coach Bill “I Coached Tom Brady” O’Brien as the titular starting quarterback for the Nittany Lions’ 2012 squad. So, how do you think this will affect Bolden and Jones? Bolden is always a loose cannon, so if this puts him into “I wanna transfer” doldrums, no telling what he and his dad will want to do. Remember that they wanted to transfer before last season, but then head coach Joseph V. Paterno, of sainted memory, would not let Bolden out of his commitment.
The depth chart will list McGloin, Jones, and Bolden as number one, two, and three, respectively.
This was the first big decision by O’Brien at Penn State since he opted to retain Larry Johnson and Ron Vanderlinden, assistant coaches in the previous administration.
Are you happy with the choice?
