Ever have one of those mornings where you have a difficult time focusing? That’s me this morning as I’m trying to figure out things I want to write, but keep thinking that it’s not good enough (not this post, but other posts).

Avalanche Journal’s Don Williams reports on a couple of roster/injury issues:

  • Inside receiver KeSean Carter broke his collar bone and had surgery to repair on Wednesday.
  • Head coach Matt Wells said that Alan Bowman would take the first snap if Texas Tech had to play today, but that Henry Colombi would still get snaps as well, “The plan is to play both,” Wells said, “and once we get in the game it’ll be very similar to last week β€” just kind of going for a feel and how each one of them are performing.”
  • Senior defensive tackle Nick McCann decided to leave the program. McCann hasn’t played in four games, with walk-on Troy Te’o and Tony Bradford, Jr. getting snaps along with Jaylon Hutchings at defensive tackle.

The news about Carter is disappointing as he’s been one of my favorite players to watch this year. Tough as nails and absolutely gives it his all every play. I thought he’s improved more than any other player and developed an absolute chip. The Bowman news is not surprising and I’m good with this. I think Bowman is a better quarterback, but he’s clearly not at #1 at this point so playing Colombi is probably smart. The loss of McCann is significant, but perhaps lessened by the emergence of Te’o.

I did not watch this live last night, but I think this might be part of the virtual tip-off event for basketball.

If you would like to watch a cinematic recap of the Baylor game, well, you are in luck.
