Inside Marshall Sports

Before the UAB game

First off, I jump in my car and the good folks on the MSN are having a long, drawn-out discussion about the officiating. I’m guessing they’re still hollering about Jarrett Brown getting knocked out. I figure if the jerseys were flipped, they’d be saying “clean hit.” And really, it was called correctly.

Montel Glasco is on the sidelines… searching for Jimmy Rogers and found him. He’s stretching doesn’t look bad.

Smallish crowd expected… one writer is muttering 16,000, though I’m not sure where he gets it. Aaron Goebbel, director of ticketing, did not return my call Friday (thus risking bad karma).

We were talking about the Tulsa-UTEP game, wondering if the Steelers could beat the Miners in El Paso … or if the Miners could beat Lincoln County on the road. (And that was my Friday night, watching Lincoln County score two touchdowns in the final three minutes to beat St. Albans).
