I like Griffin and think he did a good job at Auburn. Now we just need Clebert to stay healthy enough to play and get Robinson back asap for WVU.

Griffin did well at Auburn ... he's had experience so I had confidence in him.

Feel bad for Mo.

Hope Clebert & Robinson's injuries don't linger.

Go BULLS !!!

Capogna is respected and is a leader on the O Line, so he is a loss. He may be small, but he has a good head on his shoulders and it is a shame not to have him on the field.  The kid loves to play, lets hope he gets better and back on the field soon.

From Greg's blog:

Leavitt: "Good practice."

Trib's Gregg Becnel: "Back after the Elon game, you'd thought (Nick) Capogna might be back for North Carolina. Is that going to be the case?"

Leavitt: "No. He's not going to be back for a while, I don't think. Anything else?"

Me: "Would the West Virginia game still be in play?"

Leavitt: "Huh? I don't know. Don't ask me that. Anything else? Today he didn't practice. North Carolina, he's not going to be ready."

Me: "What about Mo Plancher?"

Leavitt: "I don't know. He didn't look good today. Didn't look 100 percent, no. I wouldn't count on him."

Becnel: "(Richard) Clebert, his sore arch or whatever he has?"

Leavitt: "He didn't look very good today."

Becnel: "Clebert didn't look good either?"

Leavitt: "No, not today."

Becnel: "Chris Robinson?"

Leavitt: "He hasn't done a thing."

Me: "How'd you feel about the team as a whole coming off the weekend, having the days off?"

Leavitt: "Well, I don't know. We didn't set the world on fire today, if you want to know. We good?"

Me: "Coach, in terms of running back, do you know what the plan is going into the game, who you'll put out there first?"

Leavitt: "Whoever practices the best."

Me: "So it's not something where it's set in stone?"

Leavitt: "No. Heck, no."

Classic Leavitt.

Losing Clebert is huge.  If we need to rest him for one more game to get the depth more experience, then that's fine against UNC, but we NEED him the week after!  This all goes for Capogna as well.

Yeah...you know, that's always the way Nick Capogna is described.

But "a good head" on one's shoulders and being a respected leader on the O-line only goes so far when you're lined up across from beasts like Foster from Rutgers and some of the other immense (in stature & talent) d-linemen on our schedule.  I like the guy because he's a Bull, but he's never been anything more than an average to below-average center.

260 lbs. just doesn't cut it in this day and age.

He's a less-than-mobile tight end that could only gain so much weight.

That's why I prefer Griffin @ center, or giving Genus a shot and moving Griffin back to guard.

He's a Captain for a few reasons..........one of them being that he is good at what he does.  You don't hand out Captain credentials to mediocre players.
