It’s only day two of fall camp and the media has focused its attention on the passing game in the early going and despite the repeated answers of head coach Mike Riley and postseason awards candidate quarterback Sean “The Machine” Mannion that sophomore flanker Victor Bolden was a big part of that answer the questions keep coming.

Today Bolden, who is a candidate for the Paul Hornung Award, showed that the potential is there to provide big plays for the Beavers. We all knew Bolden was fast, but Tuesday that speed was once again on display. During the teams’ brief 7-on-7 period, Bolden lined up against Nagurski Trophy candidate Steven Nelson and got behind the senior corner to grab a bomb from Mannion with Nelson draped all over him. Bolden was also a focus in the short passing game throughout the practice period.
