More Sunday notes

A little more of what Edsall had to say.
  • Frey is likely out for the year with a torn labrum. At some point, he'll need surgery. He is meeting with doctors again soon.

  • Jerome Junior is expected to take over as the every down strong safety. Edsall had mentioned wanting to do this last week, but still used Aaron Bagsby against Rutgers. Bagsby had a costly error on Tim Brown's winning TD catch, and Edsall sounds like he has decided to go with Junior exclusively. "I think Jerome Junior played a good game yesterday," Edsall said. "It was one of his better games at the strong safety position. He's a young kid, just a redshirt freshman, but I see a young guy getting better. He's got ability. Sometimes the young guys might make mistakes, but it will all pay off in the long run."

  • Edsall thought Frazer's performance improved. "He was inconsistent to start and made some reads he shouldn't have. Then again, he came back and did a good job of leading the team back and finished strong. Now he's going to have to be the guy and do the things that he needs to do." The biggest thing he has to do is stay within himself and take what the defense gives him. When he doesn't do that, that's when he gets himself in trouble."

  • Here's what Edsall had to say on that 81-yard Brown touchdown. "It should have never come down to that. If we took advantage of all the other things we could have taken advantage of. On play 46 (of the game, Rutgers) ran the exact same play and we had the exact same coverage. We did what we had to do on that play, and the quarterback had to run the ball on that particular play. It was one of those things where they ran the same play, we ran the same defense and we executed. Fourteen plays later, they ran the same play, same defense, we didn't execute. But you move forward, and move on. That's all you can do."

  • Edsall still believes there wasn't conclusive evidence on the Mike Ryan 2-point conversion, and has submitted video to the league. In the grand scheme of the game, it didn't matter.

  • Asked about Mike Box's status, and if he'd consider burning his redshirt if something happens with Frazer, Edsall declined comment. He said he'd get into that on Tuesday when the two-deep is released. To me, at this point, I don't see it happening. With three conference losses, there's no chance UConn can win the league title. I wouldn't think using Box would be beneficial, and would guess Johnny McEntee is now the top backup to Frazer.

Hey chip, If Frazer struggles again any chance Johnny Mac will get a shot? He lit it up in the spring game.
