Sorry but my tape recorder malfunctioned and the reporter from the A&T Register never emailed me the press conference transcript like he said he would.
In short, Small said that Speight still needs to work on his blocking but conceded that he is the most talented back on the team. He said that they would try to structure the offense to better utilize Speight's skills more.
Small also said that he was really dissapointed in the way this season has gone and is just as impatient as all the A&T fans are. He said he has grown used to winning and has been spoiled by success.
He mentioned Juan Williams as one of the young offensive linemen who really impressed him in the Morgan game.
He also said that he regretted having to use many players that he initally wanted to redshirt, like Juan Williams and Quante Speight, but the current injury situation left him no choice.
That's about it. For the second week in a row I was too scared to ask him about the offensive coordinator situation.
Hey, does anybody know Rico's status? Is he eligible/will he take a medical redshirt if he is ready to play before the season's over? Or is Small worried about a repeat of wasting Rankins for nothing cause Rico's academics might be on shaky ground or something?
If Small would just stay with the spread , he can win some games and Speight would run wild out of that offense and Glenn could throw the short stuff on 1st and second down and hit his throws regularly. It would give defenses a fit.
Besides, it was a breath of fresh air to hear Jerry Eaves talking on the Aggie Sports Report about winning 8-10 conference games this year and possibly more if he gets some breaks. He seems to have gotten him some shooters at forward and two real point guards on the basketball team.
