Eating With Ed, Week 4 - La Tech

Coming off an exciting 22-21 win against the Auburn Tigers, LSU head coach Ed Orgeron met with the media Monday. Obviously one of the most major issues addressed was the Drake Davis situation, as the wide receiver was arrested on battery yet again Saturday. Davis was first arrested on Aug. 17, which led to an indefinite suspension. Of course Orgeron had to give a vague answer, saying it was a “legal matter” that he declined to comment on. He gave a similar answer in regards to the Ingram suspension. Also in regards to vague matters, Orgeron can’t comment on four-star defensive...

Arizona’s offensive line improving, but still has ‘a long way to go’

Now that Layth Friekh is back, the unit is hoping to build some continuity The Arizona Wildcats’ offensive line was manhandled in the first two weeks of the season, particularly in the running game, but it showed marked improvement in Week 3 against Southern Utah. Sure, the Wildcats were playing an FCS team, so that was to be expected, but it was also the first time the unit was at full strength this season, too. Senior Layth Friekh returned from a two-game suspension and reclaimed his starting spot at left tackle. With his blindside protected, quarterback Khalil Tate threw for a...

Link Gumbo: Davis Arrested Again

Tiger receiver picked up again for battery. Sunday morning would bring bad news for LSU as Drake Davis, who is currently away from the team on suspension, was arrested again. Davis had already been suspended from the university all together over the original incident. While the program hasn’t had much to say about Davis, it seems like a safe bet to suggest that LSU fans have probably seen the last of Davis. In better news, LSU went into Jordan-Hare as a 10 point dog and ended the longest home winning streak in college football. I am being cautious not to get too overly optimistic here,...

Experienced reinforcements coming for Arizona

Three 2017 starters expected to make 2018 debut on Saturday Expect to see some new faces on the field for the Arizona Wildcats when they return home Saturday to face Southern Utah. Some new old faces, actually. Coach Kevin Sumlin said Monday that “three of our better players” should be making their 2018 season debut, later identifying them as senior left tackle Layth Friekh, senior cornerback Jace Whittaker and sophomore safety Scottie Young Jr. Friekh missed Arizona’s first two games while serving an NCAA-mandated suspension related to being granted an extra year of eligibility....

With Layth Friekh back, Arizona to shuffle offensive line

LT Donovan Laie will flip to right tackle and RT Cody Creason will slide to left guard To no one’s surprise, the Arizona Wildcats’ offensive line has been a glaring weakness through the first two weeks of the season. Because that’s what happens when you start a walk-on at center and a true freshman at left tackle, Coach Kevin Sumlin said. “It’s a work in progress,” he acknowledged Monday at his weekly press conference. The good news is reinforcements are on the way. Senior left tackle Layth Friekh will return Saturday against Southern Utah after serving a two-game suspension. He...

Has Grayson Allen Caught A Break With The Jazz?

Thabo Sefolosha’s suspension may work to Allen’s advantage With Thabo Sefolosha facing a five-game suspension, Grayson Allen has a chance to crack the rotation for the Utah Jazz early. It’s not common in his situation since the Jazz were a solid team last year and have some depth, particularly at point guard. But Sefolosha’s absence could cause some short-term hassles for Quin Snyder and the Jazz and Allen can obviously play off-guard and, in a pinch, some small forward for at least a bit. It’s a chance to make a mark early and we expect Allen will take full advantage. If...

The Leadership Core Steps Up

There’s one voice that matters most, and that belongs to Devin White Let’s be honest, it’s never good news when the team calls a players only meeting. No one calls a players only meeting after the big win over Rival State U. It’s not something you do when times are going good. The mere fact the team felt the need to get together in private to speak hard truths to one another assumes that there are hard truths to tell. Week two of fall practice didn’t go much better than week one, as the team lost even more players from the program due to suspension or transfer. And while I...
