Penn State's having a bit of quarterback trouble all of a sudden, according to reports.

Penn St. Nittany Lions sophomore backup quarterback Rob Bolden is dealing with "a 'minor' legal issue," according to Fight On State's Mark Brennan. No further word on what the situation might be, other than that it occurred Friday and that Bolden practiced Saturday.

This wouldn't be quite as big a deal had starting quarterback Matt McGloin not just reportedly been knocked out in a post-practice fight with receiver Curtis Drake

McGloin and Bolden threw almost all of the passes for the Nittany Lions this year. Behind them, there's sophomore Garrett Venuto and freshman Shane McGregor, who combined for two completions on the season, along with some receivers who've taken snaps. For the sake of the TicketCity Bowl against the Houston Cougars, and for the sanity of battered Penn State fans, we'll hope Bolden's not in serious trouble.
