"Lucky bastards!"


Northwestern running back star Venric Mark was

suspended today for violation of team rules and

will miss playing in the Cal game. Although he

actually missed last year's game due to an early

first quarter injury, he was showing flashes in

Fall practices.....whew!

Yeah, he was a big hope though last year wasn't his best. 

Too bad.  Actually it would be nice to see them at full strength, would have been great to see how the Bears responded to him.  Wasn't he an all-American punt and/or kickoff returner....

I dunno. A cynic might say that this demonstrates confidence on the part of their coach.

I used to feel this way, but after last season and our depleted line-up, injuries and suspension are part of the game.  At the end of the season it is the team's record that gets you to a bowl game and years from now nobody will remember who didn't play in a game... all they will see is the record and scores.

Or it would have made him look bad if he had let him play.
