Commodore Banter (8/26)

The best part about the preseason? The hope, the optimism, the belief that this will be the year. The worst part? The waiting.

As Reshard Langford said yesterday, "We're just ready to go play." And we're just ready to watch.

In two days and a little over six hours, the Commodores will take the field in Oxford, Ohio. Until then, here are a few links to help pass the time...

We touched on this yesterday in the football notebook, but The Tennessean's Mo Patton also has a story on the quarterback situation.

Columnist Joe Biddle says the season-opener is a must-win for the Commodores. Hard to disagree with that statement.

VU Commodores has a great interview with defensive end Theron Kadri. You've got to love his confidence.
Personal goals/expectations for the season?

Mainly I just want to try to get All-SEC, and then All-American if at all possible. But, we'll see. I want to at least try to make sure I get a sack a game. That's saying a lot, but I at least want to try for it.

It never hurts to dream big, does it?

Kadri is gonna be special by the time he leaves here imo.

Looking at the team we have right now, I think it is safe to say that at least 10 guys probably more will play in the NFL after graduating. That is pretty special...

but will any of them play in a bowl game?

that will be up to the coaching staff Howell. We have talent on our team. Can the staff realize that and maximize their potential?? The other problem is that I would say with the exception of maybe 2 offensive lineman (Welch and Vierling) and some of the younger offensive players (Cole and Graham), most of the guys that will play in the league are defensive players right now. Not to say that Walker couldn't have some sort of outstanding senior year or Monahan couldn't become a great TE by the time he leaves...
