(In my best Jerry Seinfeld voice) What’s the deal with all these injuries?!? Is it me or do we sit through this every year? I am still with Ralph Friedgen and I think he is the guy to turn this ship around, but I swear, if Ralph does get canned, I am not going to miss the August injuries or the offensive playbook that takes 5 years for the Quarterback to learn. Both of those things I can live without.
Once again, another Terp is down, this time it is Emani Lee Odai. Now maybe I’m crazy, maybe this happens at every college across the country, I just don’t follow those teams close enough to notice. But it sure is frustrating. Odai now joins Will Yeatman, Devonte Campbell, Cameron Chism am I missing anyone else?? Maybe I should check back to see if anyone got hurt between my opening sentence and this line of the post.
I guess though if you want to take a more optimistic outlook, we have a lot of key players that aren’t hurt, and as with everything else in life, things can always be worse. But in a year where our margin for success is razor thin, we need to catch every break we can muster, but so far the only breaks we’ve been getting are bones. I already have a sinking feeling and we are still over 2 weeks from the Navy showdown. Let’s hope we run through our spell of bad luck before the season gets officially underway.
If you get Sports Illustrated, the College Football preview has a great picture of Travis Ivey doing an interview at Dolphin’s camp with about 8 pairs of shoulder pads on. We wish Travis Ivey the best of luck in his attempt to make his NFL dream come true. Lucky for him, he will be spending his August far away from the dangerous confines of the practice facilities in College Park, Maryland
