Despite the fact that a pair of reserve quarterbacks transferred out and left LSU with just two scholarship players at the position on its roster, there was no consideration given to moving wide receiver back to the position he had previously played.
Now, Bolden has apparently considered, and decided on, moving on from Baton Rouge.
Citing a source close to the school, the New Orleans Times-Picayune is reporting that Bolden has decided to transfer out of the football program. The Times-Picayune states that a pair of directional Michigan schools — Central Michigan and Eastern Michigan. Presumably, Bolden would get the opportunity to move back to the quarterback position at either one of those MAC schools.
LSU has yet to announce what if any decision Bolden has made.
If he has received his degree, Bolden, a senior, would be eligible to play at the FBS level immediately in 2014.
In early August of 2012, Bolden officially left Penn State after two seasons and ultimately ended up at LSU. He didn’t play a single down for the Bayou Bengals during his two seasons there, and was moved to receiver during spring practice this year.
One of the most consistent pieces of Wisconsin’s passing attack, such as it is, will be on the shelf for the foreseeable future.
A UW official confirmed to madison.com that Austin Traylor sustained a right-arm injury in Saturday’s loss to Iowa. As a result, the tight end will be sidelined for the rather broad period of 4-8 weeks.
At best, Traylor could return for the Nov. 7 game against Maryland after missing contests with Nebraska, Purdue, Illinois and Rutgers. At worst, he’d miss the remainder of the regular season, but could return for a bowl game, and perhaps the Big Ten championship game if the Badgers were to earn another berth.
Because he’s already played in five games this season, Traylor would not be eligible for a medical hardship waiver if he were to miss the remainder of the year.
Traylor is tied for the team lead in receiving touchdowns with three while his 15.6 yards per reception is tops on the team. He’s third in receiving yards with 156 and tied for fourth with 10 receptions.
With each passing day, it appears Miami won’t be able to avoid one of the most talented and productive running backs in the country.
Thursday, Dalvin Cook returned to practice for the first time this week. Cook suffered a hamstring injury in the first quarter of Florida State’s win over Wake Forest this past Saturday, and had spent the previous two days of practice riding a bicycle while the rest of his teammates prepped for the in-state and conference rivalry game against The U this Saturday.
The Palm Beach Post wrote that Cook showed “no signs” of the hamstring injury that had some worried about his availability in Week 6.
Head coach Jimbo Fisher, who said Wednesday he doesn’t “ever count Dalvin out” because of his healing ability, will meet with reporters later this evening and could address Cook’s status for the weekend then. Or, he could play to keep the Hurricanes guessing, even as most assume the All-ACC back will be on the field.
Cook is far and away FSU’s leading rusher, with his 142.5 yards per game good for eight in the country and his six rushing touchdowns tied for 20th.
