  1. Looking at his facebook it looks like he may be having to good of a time at college. Hopefully the new coaches talk to him about making good behavior choices. He is a great talent would hate to lose him.

  2. Anyone have his game by game stats handy? I remember hearing his name a lot through the first half of the season, then he seemed to drop off the radar. It was like Canada forgot he was on the team for a while.

    Of course, I could just be “mis-remembering”, so to speak.

  3. Bolser did a mid season interview where he went on and on about breaking individual records for the TE position and wanting to play at the next level. I noticed they didn’t throw to him nearly as much after the interview. Is there a connection , I don’t know.

  4. On a lot of Bolser’s early touchdowns, he was the No. 4 or 5 option. He did a nice job of getting open and staying that way, but Ben Chappell was able to check down and eventually find Bolser. When the Big Ten season started, teams were more focused on Bolser — but Chappell was having to get rid of the ball faster. That led to more throws to the top guys (Doss, Belcher, Turner) and less to Bolser.

  5. That makes sense. I was at all the home games and noticed Chappell was focusing on Doss as soon as the ball was snapped. Sometimes he threw into double coverage when he had open recievers. I think this was partly because he didn’t have a lot of time to get rid of the ball but also because Chappell were buddies on and off the field.
