Late afternoon appetizer

Had a chance to speak with several players this afternoon, including Johnathan Smith and Cody Brown. I will post again a little later.

A few other nuggets of info to hold you over...
  • Tight end Dan Murray (ankle) will miss the Wake Forest game, and be reassessed after that to see how close he is to returning to action. Murray had his ankle wrapped and was wearing a soft cast Wednesday, but was walking free and easy without crutches.

  • Randy Edsall commented on the good week for Big East teams. Among the highlights were Rutgers defeating North Carolina, Louisville over Kentucky and Pittsburgh defeating Virginia.

  • Expect UConn to be well prepared when Wake Forest comes to the Runway in 10 days. Not only will the Huskies have had over two weeks to prepare for the Deamon Deacons, but they also have the advantage of being able to see quarterback Benjamin Mauk's replacement. Mauk was lost for the season after a broken arm in a win over Syracuse. UConn not only has game tape of backup Riley Skinner, who played the fourth quarter against Syracuse, but will be able to scout him again Saturday when Wake takes on Duke.

I predict Skinner will have a coming out party in East Hartford on the 16th. He must be salivating at the thought of going up against a defense as porous as the Huskies'.

Let's not froget what Wake did to a terrible BC team-scored 30 on them:D

UConn is a great team with great players. Expect an easy win.
