    Hey guys,

    Just in case you didn’t see my tweets earlier at @USAVGSports. Here’s my notes from the postgame press conference:

    Arrow: “X [Roberson] said he heard a pop. We’ll get an x-ray taken in the morning. If it is broke, he’s done for the year. We’ll put a screw in it and redshirt him for next year.”

    He went on to confirm that Rubit had a contusion in his back and it appears to just be a stinger. He’s essentially listed as day-to-day and probable for Saturday.

    Lastly, Lundy and Ammons had noticeable limps. Both are okay but Ammons told me that he did a number on his knees tonight. This was immediately after the game and before he went to ice them. Nothing to see here, I think.

    Most exciting game of the year, on par with LSU. We just came out on the wrong end of it. Bummer.
