Carlton Jackson and Chris Jacquemain sat out today's practice with undisclosed minor injuries.
Akron's No. 1 and 2 passers on the depth chart were hurt during consecutive plays on Tuesday.
J.D. Brookhart didn't seem to think the injuries were too serious. Still, there's obviously no reason making some extend himself for a lousy spring practice.
Their absence meant Sean Hakes took all the snaps. I didn't see the whole practice, but it appeared he was being a little more conservative in his passing. And Brookhart was being less aggressive in his running. With three quarterbacks injured (including supposed emergency QB Jabari Arthur), the team doesn't want to resort to last year's No. 2 passer statistically -- Dennis Kennedy.
Jackson and Jacquemain could be back tomorrow.
It's notes time...
Respected college football blog Sunday Morning Quarterback took some shots at yours truly. I can't complain because I've definitely ripped a fellow writer or two. Oh well. I guess SMQ doesn't understand when I say Carlton Jackson could be a Michael Vick clone, it means he has a similar playing style -- not that he will go No. 1 overall.
The real reason SMQ is taking shots? They wanted me to write the Akron preview myself. Instead, I told them to feel free to take tidbits off my blog. I'm a busy man. Charity work in journalism is for suckers.
Regardless, SMQ does a terrific job of breaking down college football in a digestible, entertaining way.
