Thursday Link-a-thon

Just a few quick links for your Thursday morning.

• MBN is now on Facebook! That's right kids, head on over to our custom page on Facebook and become a fan of Maize & Blue Nation!

• Freshman TE Kevin Koger is as surprised as anyone to find himself in the starting role now, has been given the nickname "Greg Oden" by his teammates. Find out why.

• RB Carlos Brown and WR Junior Hemingway are still out for this week.

• Freshman WR Martavious Odoms is drawing some huge praise from Rich Rodriguez for his hard work a toughness...although he fumbled a kickoff and suffered a sprained shoulder against Illinois and is questionable for this week. He practiced yesterday, but wore a green no-contact uniform.

• The line is getting closer to what Rodriguez believes to be the starting 5. The line has been shuffled feverishly in the first 5 games, mostly because of injuries, but also because we're still trying to figure out who is good enough to start. Right now Rodriguez feels that Perry Dorrestein, Mark Ortmann, David Molk, David Moosman and Steve Schilling are the starters he's going to try and stick with for the rest of the season.

• DE Brandon Graham (leg infection) and LB Austin Panter (shoulder) are both out this week.

• What can only be a good sign leading up to the Toledo game..."We had one of our better Tuesday practices of the season," Rodriguez said. "A little more aggressive, a little more physical. I really liked the intensity." Tuesday's are typically a full-pads, full-contact practice.
