Two weeks into the season, and neither Penn State quarterback has thrown a touchdown pass.
Against Alabama, no matter who was leading the offense, Penn State only had one red-zone opportunity.
Should there be cause for concern?
"Absolutely not," Matt McGloin said. "Last week, we really didn't throw the ball much. We ran it a lot of times. We weren't really worried about how many touchdown passes we throw during the game. We're just worried about winning the game."
Rob Bolden had some positive strides against Alabama, converting three first downs out of a timeout in the first possession of the game, but he was intercepted once after a couple of errant throws in to double coverage. McGloin completed just one pass for zero yards and threw a number of poor passes.
It has gotten to the point where somebody needs to become the full-time quarterback, because Penn State cannot carry on with two players under center.
"I just think that I have to step up to the plate," Bolden said. I don't try to compare myself to McGloin or anyone else on the team. I never have. To me, this is all just football and how capable you are of doing things. I think I'm fairly capable of being a good leader for the team."
