Anger Motivates. And there are two players that are going to be so rightfully Angry on Saturday that you know they are going to have great games.
1) Minor. Wasn't allowed to play last week (held out for precaution? or too injured... I'm going with precaution) - Watched his team from the sidelines for 4 quarters without once being allowed to run over a LB... for the first time in 9 months! You know he's going to be foaming to get out there and prove himself in his Sr year. No one stops Minor Rage. And absolutely no one can stop Enraged Minor Rage. He runs for 100+ and a TD while setting up a ball control offense that helps takes the pressure off the true freshmen qbs.
2) Graham. Not one sack last week. 0. Couldn't have played any better... was defensive player of the game. He is going to be after Clausen - a lot - If the front 4 can put all the pressure on the passing game then there is more coverage down field due to no blitzing. He's going to be gunning to make up for that "0" this week... 2 sacks and multiple hits/hurries. And I hope he pulls Clausen's pretty hair in the bottom of a sack-pile.
