Rob Bolden has been a spark plug of debate among the Penn State community, whether he intended to be or not. When word spread that he was looking to transfer out of the program, there were some fans who felt that he was turning his back on the program and it would be wise to part ways with him under those circumstances.
But he's back, and it appears he is preparing for the 2011 season with Penn State. If this is going to be the case, what reasons should Penn State have for offering him a second chance as the starting quarterback?
I asked for reasons via Twitter, and the feedback was tremendous. Here is a sampling of what Penn State fans had to say to me about the topic, along with my follow-up commentary. All responses were used with permission.
