Went to the game.
It kind of seemed like everyone had a Conferemce USA and Lockdown hangover.
No energy from the team or the fans.
I hope that isn't the same on Saturday.
Just listened to the audio clip of Jarvis at the press conference.
He sounded pretty pissed off at the reporters. And it's only November
They wouldn't give him a scholarship so he quit
Owl Access, what ever happened to our punt returner that was from the Tampa area? He was about 5'6" and really fast. I can't remember his name.
I don't have all the facts and the dust is still settling,but it seems we have some walk ons that can and will provide some needed depth at some...
How are the proposed walk ons looking at this time?
Rusty Smith released by Calgary on Sunday.
Hopes he can catch on with another CFL team or get an invite to an NFL team training camp. We hope so too!
