OK, here goes … First, we’ve got to wonder what kind of Green-White Game we’ll see with the sheer number of defensive players in blue and yellow shirts. Darn near looked like a Mountaineer squad, visually… And then Zearrick Matthews went down (ankle) in one-on-one drills, and watched the rest. He was able to stand, however.
Recapping all those who are being held out is starting to get tedious. Let’s see … Hoskins, McClellan, Harvey, Spillman, Kitchens, Wingate (though he does a lot of non-contact stuff), D. Marshall, Baldridge, Saunders. … and I have to be leaving someone out. Such are the rites of spring.
Mark Cann probably had a better day than J. Garner and B. Anderson. Cann and Garner got to run 2-minute drills, Cann with the ‘ones.’ Cann should have scored a touchdown, but Courtney Edmonson dropped a perfect pass in the end zone. Garner’s possession began with a sack and ended with two dismal incompletes.
Had a long, interesting chat with John Jacobs about the defensive ends (or are they linebackers?) in Minter’s defense. Defense put in some more screwy blitzes, and got to the QBs pretty often.
If you’ve missed it, MU set its home game times — 4:30 except for the TV games and the finale against Tulsa, which is 3:30. Of the road games, the UAB game was set for 4 Eastern, 3 Central.
Basketball-wise, the Florida kids signed as expected … look for a possible signee later in the week, but fear not… the Herd will not go over in schollies. It’ll work out 😉
