Well, I wonder what all Gus had to say in his first press conference of the season. I'm sure it's noting, so let's just check in, and, wait, what? Jovon Robinson was dismissed. Umm... Excuse me for just a second.
Ok, so, let's get back to the talk. It appears Gus won't suffer distractions, which I applaud. It looks like that's the talk that dominated most of the press conferences as Gus answered questions on that so did some of the players.
Oh, and if that's not fun enough for you, freshman WR Kyle Davis is "week-to-week" with a foot issue. I had Davis penciled in as a starter. THIS IS FINE. EVERYTHING IS FINE.
