Jacquemain tops depth chart

By mrasor Published: October 2, 2007

Chris Jacquemain
is now the starting quarterback, according to the updated depth chart.
J.D. Brookhart benched Carlton Jackson against UConn for skipping a morning's worth of meetings and treatments for his ankle on Tuesday, a source tells me.
Either the coach decided to extend that punishment, or he liked what he saw out of Jacquemain. My guess is probably the latter, given Jacquemain's decent stats against a staunch defense.
Westerrn Michigan, Saturday's opponent, is pretty good at pass defense, allowing opponents fewer than 200 yards per game through the air. The real weakness to exploit is the Broncos' run defense, which is 115th in the nation.

    Other changes to the depth chart...
    Phillip Morris replaces Andre Jones as the second kick returner.
    Andy Hildreth is the permanent holder.

    Media clips...
    The Buchtelite's Adam Ferrise wrote an interesting feature about John Mackey and his knee injury. He seems to think Mackey has a good shot at getting that medical redshirt.
    The Buchtelite's Vincent Dorsey wrote about the game, including some quotes from Brion Stokes and Jacquemain.

The Buchtelite also spoke with Ohio's education chancellor Eric Fingerhut about the plan to combine UA and Cleveland State. He was vague and spoke in generalities, often dodging the real question. When I say "Finger," you say "Middle."
