might be right be is just an all the time contrarian.  He is a know-it-all poster who only speaks to tell others they are wrong about something.  It was getting old three years ago and now it is just pathetic.

But its not all the time. More like 50/50, with us just forgetting the nice comments.

I'm down to start a hate club/group if you wanna join tho. Ive heard they are pretty popular nowadays.

During the 1014 season Tony Romo suffered transverse process fractures of two lower back vertebrae and only missed one game.  Likely that is what Speight suffered except his were in the neck.

There are small protrusions called the transverse arches that are rarely fractured and would be a very serious injury.  Much more probable that he had small anterior vertebral body fractures from the hyperflexion mechanism of the injury.

That is terrific to see.  Importantly the article says that Eubanks is also coming back to practice, that the injuries to Higdon and Isaac don't seem to be an issue but Lavert Hill is still in the concussion protocal. 

With the exception of Hill (which is significant), all looking up.

I would say the news on Issac, Higdon, Onwenu is actually the big news. We need all these guys healthy next week to give our offense a better shot of moving the ball and scoring some points.

But, good to see all players doing better and getting back to practice. Hopefully Hill will be able to go this week.

So based on this and the front page article:

Higdon and Onwenu seem likely to play this week. Long as well since he came back in.

Speight and Eubanks are getting healthy but not yet.

Isaac is getting better but is he good enough to play?

Collins and Hill we have to wait and see, no real updates.

I had to wager, the Higdon "good news" is that he will probably play against Ohio State.  While not one of the worst I have seen, that was surely a sprain and he could not put much weight on it.  My guess is that he travels and dresses but does not play in Madison.

game was over at halftime.  There was nothing illustrative about the second half, at all.  It had to be played in order for the game to officially count.  That is all.

a full week of treatment and then maybe some tape, tramadol, etc on gameday and hes got a chance.

who knows though given the varying degrees of ankle injuries and the impact of a bum wheel on RBs like higdon.

theyll need all hands on deck vs wisc so hopefully some tape does work wonders

Well if predictingthat Higdon wears the maize & blue Iron man suit would be wild speculation than what would be a more conservative, rational, educated guess, I mean, who IS gonna wear the fucking Iron man suit this week?

How do you know Higdon couldn't put much weight on his ankle?  He walked to the locker room with a bit of a limp but not enough that we could conclude at that time that he wasn't coming back in the game in the 2nd half.
