09:26 AM ET 08.03 | Former Penn State quarterback Rob Bolden wasn't permitted to talk to the media after an uneventful first day of practice at LSU. He made some nice throws, some wobbly ones, got a brand new playbook and did no interviews. "I met him last night at the team meeting; he's a great guy," said LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger, who is solidly entrenched as the starter. ... Mettenberger said the competition Bolden brings will make him a better quarterback and do the same for redshirt freshmen Stephen Rivers and Jerrard Randall. But Mettenberger also said the four will work together. "They don't want to lose their No. 2 and 3 spot," he said. "It will make them work a whole lot harder.

Even though Bolden is from my neck of the woods, I am not a fan him. However, it would FNing hilarious if a back up B1G qb led LU'S to the SEC title.

Mettsiah meets Bolden for the first time, and promptly pronounces him "a great guy"?

He is practicing his coachspeak, apparently.

If Bolden can run the option, then he has value to LUS. Bolden may also help the team GPA.

I believe they are young and lack experience.
