Jinks Presser

Not too much of interest this week. 

On the QB, Morgan took the reps today and Doege will not play until he is healthy.  Sounds like better than 50/50 that it is Morgan Saturday.

As for the other notable thing, Coach built upon his comments that the team is better this year than they were last year.  He said last year when we had injuries, we had to throw guys out there who were "nowhere near" ready to play.  This year, the freshman are a different type of freshman.  He noted a play on defense where three freshmen made a stop on a zone play.  In particular, he noted Dirion Hutchins and Posey, of course, had a huge game against Miami.  When you look at Coleman, Wilcox, Clair, you just have freshmen who don't look like freshmen. 

I know this is a decent-sized source of debate here in Falcon land.  Obviously, after a win things always look good.  If this team goes 2-10---which is still very possible----then you will have a hard time convincing me that they are better than last year.  But, I do see what he is saying.

Anyway, beyond that, no big news from this week.  Homecoming Saturday and OU is coming off a loss.  Will be a challenge, they move the ball effectively and we still have a lot of gaps on defense.  Will be interesting to watch.
