Hmmm...very interesting. I brought up Bolden on the heels of the previous article highlighting Paterno's "control" over everything having to do w. Penn State. I wonder how common it is that coaches don't grant transfer requests?
We're just grasping at everything to prove Paterno is a control freak? As we've seen this year Bolden is not that good. But Joe believed in him and thought he could improved. Bolden wanted to leave because he was giving up at Penn State and feeling he couldn't compete against a walk on. What coach who believed in a player, invested considerable amount of time and effort and money to bring him in, would let him freely leave without fulfilling his potential.
