I have to admit that I'm optimistic about this season (and I've been accused of being "the biggest koolaid drinker on the site"), but looking through the media day coverage on clonezone, a common theme got me a little concerned.
For one thing, I hadn't realized that Jamie Vanderbeken had been injured (broken foot?) trying out for the British team. Apparently he still isn't working out. Then I saw that Craig has a sprained knee, and will be taking it easy for a couple of weeks. Couple that with Diante's broken foot(?) from this summer, and maybe another injury that's slipping my mind, but all of them together almost seem endemic, and could be a problem if they continue through the season.
After all, the football team has struggled with nagging injuries (Darks, Sed, Houston, Money, Rashawn...). I still have visions of WJ limping through the season two years ago.
Of course, perhaps they are getting all of the injuries out of the way now, and will be completely healthy come conference play, and through the NCAA's. I guess we'll see. :biggrin:
