How serious is Cam's back injury?  We need him in there!

Agreed we need Cam back, but in retrospect I felt like Jake Ryan played a good game in his place, considering without his tipped pass (leading to Herron's touchdown) it changed the momentum of the game. Some of his blitzes really disrupted Western in the 2nd half too.

I have grown very fond of Jake Ryan over this past year. In the spring game he showed that he was a playmaker, the interception for a td, and today he proved it again. I really think he could be our Clay Mathews type linebacker. I would love to see Cam get healthy and be a key player on that defense, but as of today, I really like Jake Ryan. I think there will be a competition building in the near future.

Cam Gordon, Kenny Demens, Jake Ryan...who is going to cover and pass defend? You have two blitzers and a run stopper in the middle. Unless it's a 90%+ run situation, you can't play those 3 at the same time. We have to have someone who can drop into the correct zone and feel comfortable taking TE's and RB's out of the backfield.

That Barnum was NOT suspended...he was out with an injury.

He also said Troy could have come back in after the second delay if action had resumed.
