Newspaper reading: Injuries could be a problem
Starting LG Kenarious Gates is out. Geathers is banged up as well. We need a big game from him Saturday, because reports of Jon Jenkins struggling to adjust to the heat during fall practice means we can't rely on him for a ton of snaps Saturday, especially with the question mark behind him as Ogletree sits at ILB.
And Coach, "Everybody want me to snap? Is that what they want? You all want to see me snap, is that what it is? Yeah? Well, we don’t discuss what happens in the locker room. But if you guys want me to throw a table or something I’ll do that, maybe smash a camera, if that makes everybody feel better.” What we wanted was actual change, not a chair shuffling and hiring of familiar faces and old friends. We know you're working hard, and have seen from 2001-2005 (we don't consider a hot half year since to extend the strong early results through 07 or 08), so we trust that maybe, just maybe, an inexplicable dropping off the map isn't occuring. But since Colorado (and somewhat before), we've seen little to keep the faith.
