Tuesday was full of news, between E.J. Savannah being allowed to leave the team and president Mark Emmert speaking out in favor of patience for coach Tyrone Willingham.
All of that sort of ended up squeezing some other interesting stuff out of our Wednesday paper.
So, here's a little bit of some of that interesting stuff:
Offensive coordinator Tim Lappano on the tailback situation in the absence of tailback Chris Polk due to a should separation, which will certainly keep him out this weekend and perhaps end his season:
"I think David (Freeman) and Brandon Johnson, Willie Griffin, and I think there's a role for Brandon Yakaboski. I'm not going to say what it is, but I think there's a role for him in this football game as well. Again, I think it will be a little bit of tailback by committee. We'll see what happens with who we start, but David played extremely well and Willie did a nice job on some inside runs. We'll just go with that right now at the tailback spot."
Never miss a local story.
Freeman on why he played well (30 yards on six carries) against BYU:
I wasn't being scared, wasn't letting the pressure get to me. I just went out there and played football: ran hard, saw the holes and hit them, and that's basically what football's about for a running back: not being scared."
And finally, Ryan Perkins describing his blocked 35-yard PAT attempt to tie against BYU:
"The only thing that was unusual was it was right away when I heard another thud after I hit it. Like I said, we had pretty good film, and it looked like was three and a half or three yards in front of me when the guy got through. And I'm seven yards from the line of scrimmage. I've seen a couple of side view angles of it, and the call was carrying up pretty good... about five or six feet off the ground at the three-yard mark."
