    Austen

    I was walking out of forker today and i saw AA playing badminten for his class. He was using his left hand and his right hand was still taped heavily. Is anyone FOR SURE he is going to play? Or is it all speculation. We absolutely need him to be full strength for this weekend if we want to pull off an upset.

    Re: Austen

    Yes for sure. Why would he risk getting it hurt while not playing football?

    Re: Austen

    Well, I would say his hand being taped probably means he is not full strength. But, good enough to go, probably.

    Re: Austen

    It may just be taped like that so that he doesn't use it unless he has to, like football games. Also, keep it protected against any accident that may occur.

    Re: Austen

    He was quoted as saying that it stays taped when he is not throwing the football. Nothing to see here.

    Re: Austen

    I took a badmitten class at ISU, that was awesome!


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    I'm sure he is trying to rest it at all times, when he is not at practice.

    Re: Austen

    I remember there were a few fairly reputable posters saying he likely wouldn't play last week (and they were right) who are saying he WILL play this week.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    To add on to that, AA said himself that he could have played if needed(he did in there for a down). Hopefully, there won't be too many cobwebs.

    If banmitton is a risk to his hand then for sure tomorrow he is screwed... if its still taped up at all, then no way he is 100%... we will see.

    Not completely true. Staff said he had a chance to play. People (media, fans) speculated from there but no one felt close to confident he would actually play.

    This week, both coach and player have been very clear about AA starting against A&M.
