Football Bowl Game Press Conference

The Falcons held a media day on the GMAC Bowl, and there's a couple of reports.

Jack Carle of the Sentinel has this account. Good stuff on what it means to be in a bowl game and what the practice regimen is like given the late bowl game (second to last on the schedule), which you can see clicking here.

For those interested in the nitty gritty for handicapping the game, here's the injury report:

INJURIES: Brandon said linebacker John Haneline (foot) and safety Jerett Sanderson (deep thigh bruise) would not be available for the game.
Freshman Glen Stanley has played well in Haneline’s spot and P.J. Mahone has made the most of his opportunity to play full-time at safety. Stanley has 44 tackles and Mahone has seven interceptions and 80 tackles.
Wide receiver Corey Partridge (broken thumb) could be ready to play.

The fact that we still moved the ball with Partridge out, and the emergence of Glen Stanley and Mahone give me considerable confidence for us next season.

Meanwhile, Ryan at the Blade blogs the same event in advance of his story that ran today.

The blog provides a lighthearded look at Tyler Sheehan's facial hair, Kory Lichstensteiger's tardiness, the Freddie Barnes outlook on life, and Sean O'Drobinak, class clown.

Here's the actual story.
Note that the extension probably won't be done until after the game.
