Getting into this season, we have two players who we can't afford to lose: Mettenberger and Copeland. Losing 44 today, at least on paper, has written us off from the list of National Championship contenders as we rely on his block and pass protection sooooo much in either run or pass situations, and there is no experienced backup for him on the roster (only a true freshman left if I remember correctly). Say whatever you want but sorry, this so-called "championship" season is done with his seemingly major injury. I wish Copeland nothing but good luck and pray for his return before the BAMA game. That's all I can hope for.
