    Wow, counting the injured players who just got cleared, that is about 25% of the squad that is injured or recently recovered from injuries. Is that typical for a D-1 squad or are we injury prone?

    Is Nate Crissman related to Nick Crissman. Maybe he will have less shoudler problems.

    Did i read this right? TWO QBs with labrum injuries? might as well kiss their careers goodbye. and BUMMER about anthony jefferson. no idea he was injured and i wanted to see how he played in spring ball. and SUPER GLAD to have Thigpen back. I hope the new offensive coordinator can use him and show what he can do. Guy is electric!

    Considering the “drills” only limitation of 2 QBs and another out entirely, looks like young Dr. Hundley will be getting some major reps this Spring.


    A M.A.S.H. Unit has less casualties than a football team.

    As I always have contended, football should be banned, and of course it is not played in any civilized country.
