    I really feel for the guy. He has been so good this season, especially having to get killed every game. I think Anthony Jennings will be a star, but I sure would love to see Zach finish out his career in the bowl game so he can at least try to get a bowl win. Hasn't had one since he has been here.

    Anyone got an update on his knee or what happened to it? Torn ligament or hyper extension?

    I'm with you on your sentiment. I sure hope this doesn't knock his draft status down if he tore a ligament. I'm hoping for hyperextension.

    He deserves to be a late 1st rounder or 2nd rounder at worst. Best arm in college football.

    Just seeing the emotion with him right after the game almost brought me to tears. Man I feel so bad for him right now.

    Mett is a warrior, hopefully he can move around well enough by the bowl game to be able to play.

    after the game Miles said he would be healed up by time for a bowl game. Not sure if that was informed or just Miles being optimistic.

    I heard him say that Odell's injury was not something that would keep him out but didn't great that about Mett's injury. Sure hope nothing was torn.
