I'll be leaving for the game soon enough, but before I go, I'd like to know how much playing time you think backup quarterback Kirby Freeman should get tonight.
In my opinion, Larry Coker needs to let Kyle Wright play long enough to stack up substantial points, gain some confidence and get a good feel for his offense. What Coker shouldn't do, as he did against Temple, is leave Wright in there with reserve offensive linemen, risking another injury (last year he sprained his thumb when Chris Rutledge allowed a sack). Tonight, Rutledge is supposed to be starting at left tackle, so that's backup enough for me.
Kirby Freeman should play a lot tonight and get some confidence of his own. Keep in mind who he is playing against. But still, can't you just see debates all over the place if Freeman were to have a great game?
I wonder how many fans will show tonight, given that it looks like it's about to pour. Enjoy the game, wherever you are. Next week will be a load, for sure.
