GOOD NEWS: DALRON SPEAD ON THE MEND
Bobby Johnson's telling folks that junior nickelback Dalron Spead should see action in the Florida game on Nov. 8.
That's great news.
Remember Spead's last play, against South Carolina? In the first half, he broke on a Chris Smelley pass, snatched it out of the air and raced about 40 yards downfield. That was a huge turning point in the game.
While Spead was darting down the field, I was thinking what an athletic play it was and how I'd never realized how talented he was. I mean, he was fast and strong.
And then he got tackled and fractured his leg.
Senior Jared Fagan has done an admirable job in his absence, but it will be nice to have Spead back.
Hey Dalron, we need you to get some interceptions and return them for touchdowns. Two a game would be nice.
