If JoePa had to guess, he'd say he'll have a new starting QB Sat.


When Penn State takes the field Saturday against, they’ll in all likelihood do so without the player under enter who’s started the first seven games of the season.

True freshman Robert Bolden suffered a concussion in the Nittany Lions’ win over Minnesota Saturday, and, based on the words of his head coach, there doesn’t appear to be a very good chance of the quarterback taking the field in four days.

“[The medical staff] tested him Sunday and he still had memory problems,” Joe Paterno said during his weekly news conference. “They are going to test him again [Wednesday].

“But, if you ask me, if I had to guess, he won’t be able to make it. I don’t want to take any chances. I just don’t know.”

Matt McGloin replaced Bolden following the second-quarter injury, and Will Likely do the same this weekend.  The former walk-on certainly stated his case for the chance as he tossed two touchdown passes against the Gophers.
