Ted Bolser will play Saturday


A clarification for those who may have been wondering. The Big Ten does not require a player who has been ejected from a game to serve a suspension in the following game, according to Big Ten spokesman Scott Chipman. The conference reserves  the right to dole out punishment for on-field conduct, but it is not automatic.

Tight end Ted Bolser was ejected from Saturday’s game when an official said he threw a punch in the pile when Michigan State fumbled a punt. Bolser said on his Twitter account Monday that he has been cleared to play in this coming Saturday’s game against Ohio State.

    Having watched the game live, and having taped it, I reviewed that play several times and could never discover any type of conduct by Bolser that would justify getting ejected from the game. Obviously, I never saw him throw a punch.

    I assumed that he had said something to an opposing player, or maybe even to a ref, and having heard it, the ref flagged him. But then, given the penalty, that would not have been a personal foul, it would have been “unsportsmenlike conduct.” It made no sense.

    Punching at a ball during a fumble is quite common. In fact, the technique is taught and practiced as early as High School. Punching at a players helmet is just stupid, with the most likely result being a broken hand. I can’t imagine Bolser threw a punch at a MS player’s head. This was probably just another moronic call by refs that seem to have lost their common sense. If it was a serious punch, thrown in anger, Bolser would not be playing this week against Ohio State.

    So on that play, it looked like the refs made two huge mistakes; failing to see that IU had recovered the fumble and for ejecting a player for a phantom punch. Hell, I still have a small scar on the bridge of my nose resulting from being at the bottom of a pile in a High School game. It gets nasty in there.

    It always seems IU suffers under the poor officiating the NFL complained about during their 1st 3/4 games.

Scoop Poll:

Where will IU be ranked to start next season?
