Notes and wild speculation
- Sperbeck continues doing well. Per Jay Tust:
- The O-line has been getting a bad rap all week. So far having allowed 19 sacks in the season. That is good for being tied for 106th in the nation. Ouch. That is a lot of times the QB, whoever that is, getting hit by the opposing team. Already seven games under the belt, one would think they would have that under control. I guess we'll see.
- Harsin said during his presser he expects McNichols to be back this week. Last week McNichols even went so far as to warm up and get a little bit of time during warmups. But he ended up in game sweats before the opening kickoff. His concussion will hopefully have gotten better and allow him to perform.
- Despite Utah State's somewhat success in rushing, still no 100 yard rusher. But mostly because of the short field the Aggies had from a certain number of turnovers. Don't have to go too far when you have the type of field advantage they did.
- Biggest change so far is Deayon is out for (about) four weeks with a surgery over the weekend. I have never once wanted to shake my fist in quiet rage than when Deayon got his leg rolled on by the Colorado State defender. Be wary, Colorado State guy, the sternly-worded e-mail is headed for your sports information director! Deayon will be sorely missed.
- Which leads us into the opportunity for one of the other cornerbacks to step up. Ford OR Horton. Based on previous play time, I would have to venture to say that Horton gets the nod here. This true freshman has played quite well and been a solid reliever for Deayon. Here is to Horton for stepping up. Big shoes to fill.
- Rausa is good. The kicking game is comforting. Yay kicking!
Anything worth noting about the starting lineup? Any surprises? Will McNichols play this Saturday? Will Ford or Horton get the start? Will Deayon be back in four weeks, or later with any lingering issues? Will we see Turner again this year? Let me know!
