So we have all these dinged up guys everywhere, according to CMC himself, but supposedly only Willich that will be out for significant time.

With that being said, are there any concerns about any other starters possibly missing some time? Just didn’t remember this many guys sitting out spring games in the past? Any real worries?

Football is a physical game. Can't control injuries.

Yep. Just wondered if there were any rumors/concerns that anyone else could miss some time?

Sounds like Rocco and Noel and Higgins for instance participated in some of the warm up sessions today, just not in the game. Did anyone see any significant guys that were just in street clothes all day?

Abu and Carson were also on the sideline.

I’m not going to worry about it until I hear something different when summer camp opens.

Right now I’m sitting back waiting for the last handful of “portal” moves to drop. Not going to speculate who.

On a side note, I really like the cardinal helmet, black jersey, and cardinal pants look. Sharp.

There is no point in those guys playing in the spring game. They are known commodities, let the younger guys get reps and prove themselves.

I loved Campbell's most truthful answer ever about whether we should take anything significant about the offense from the spring game.

"No!"

You said they were "on the sideline". Technically, so were Rocco, Noel, and Higgins... but I heard they participated in pre-game warm up drills. I take it Abu and Carson didn't?
You mentioned Rocco, Jaylin and Jayden in the post I quoted. What part of “also” is hard for you to follow. Seriously?

No, Sama and Carson were in uniform. I arrived at 10:15 am and saw Becht, Sama, and the others scrimmaging with offense going South. Then about 10:25 they stopped and started doing position drills. Those guys are fine, just not showing us what they can do. I saw one D-line, I think it was #97, guy with a boot on his left foot and a scooter.
