After a couple days of limited activity (thanks income-producing professional career) I've got plenty of links to catch up on, before I start working on the Name of the Week and the Game Note posts. Here goes:

Even with the added responsibility he has as a head coach, Caldwell runs on the treadmill at least five days a week and is able to bench press 300 pounds for two repetitions. Perhaps even more impressive, after he maxes out with 300 pounds, his next set is with 225 pounds for 10 repetitions.

"It's painful enough to where I can't perform as well as I need to and the procedure is for the pain,'' Marve said. "It could have been a lot worse. We're just going to get it taken care of and I should be back real soon."

Junior middle linebacker Chris Marve has a meniscus tear and will "probably" have his knee scoped on Wednesday, Coach Robbie Caldwell said. Marve wants to practice today to gauge his comfort level. After that a decision will be made. If his knee is scoped, Caldwell believes that his team co-captain will be able to play Oct. 16 at Georgia.

"I'm very optimistic about what this team can do and what it can become," Stallings said. "This is the hardest-working team I've ever coached." Stallings bases this on seeing John Jenkins in the gym when he would arrive for work this summer, many times well before 9 a.m. Many times Jenkins had been there since 7. "This went on all summer," Stallings said. "It wasn't only him. Jeffery Taylor, Steve Tchiengang and everyone on campus. I know how committed they are and how willing they are."
