    I hope Minkah only plays a few snaps, if any. We need him to be 100 percent v Auburn. Same for most of the defense and anyone on offense who is dinged up.

    I hope we get a good lead in the 1st quarter so the 2nd stringers and 3d stringers can play the rest of the game. It still surprises me that Auburn had trouble with Mercer until the 4th quarter. I know they had 5 turnovers, but still. Mercer is going to think they can hang with us since they did with Auburn. We need to put that out of their mind in the 1st quarter.

    What kind of O does Mercer run?

    Only way I'd prefer for these guys to play much against Mercer is if they run the same type of Offense as Auburn.

    Otherwise, our offensive scout team will prepare them more than Mercer can and there is far less chance to get injured in practice if we are still using the "thud" method.

    Question - if Minkah sits out, how does the secondary shake out?

    Does Tony Brown take the Star reps in both nickel and dime? Who takes the money reps in dime? Does Hootie slide down and let Thompson play deep? Do we get more of the underclassmen (Carter, Diggs, Mayden, Wright, McKinney and Mcdonald) into the rotation to build some depth
