I think it's some BS that schools can just neglect to share injury information while others will openly answer questions when they arise via the media. I just think it shows a lot about how you run your program; I guess in a nature that is overly-serious. Although I won't deny that what Oregon has been doing under Chip Kelly these last few years has been a winning formula and has undoubtedly led to much success, I just don't have respect for coaches (Belichick for example) who would scrape up every crumb of an advantage they can get if it meant grinding their fingers down to a bloody pulp. If you're a truly great coach, you'll get it done with your team on the field, regardless of who is injured or who is playing. Instead its 'we're going to try to play mind games with you, because nobody says we can't.'
Just my two cents. Chew on that.

Couldn't agree more! +1
What possible competitive advantage do you give up with radio silence about injuries three weeks before the season begins?
It shows nothing but paranoia on the part of a head coach and a terrible disrespect to the fan base, which ultimately pays the bills and deserves timely information.
I claim full responsibility.
I predicted him as my Heisman winner the other day. Clearly, I jinxed him.
he practiced yesterday seems to be fine
Our Butch is an awesome Butch he reigns from Knoxville with Jalen Hurd on the way our Butch is an awesome Butch
The one advantage I could see is the preparation for DAT. If he plays,well then you have to prepare a whole lot for him because he can get you on several different levels of the game. If he's not playing, then you just have to prepare for an average playmaker. Some coaches spend alot of time preparing for certain players more than others.
HA, i did too. Guess it was a collective jinx.
Come and take them.
There's very little game planning at this point of camp. That's my point. There's no good reason not to be truthful now.
Closer to game time, I can understand why coaches don't talk bout injuries.
I gotcha RTAtl, I agree, there really isn't any advantage I can think of this far out unless they just want to be different and stay quite.
Where did you see that he was injured? I can't find anything
I believe he left practice early, escorted by a trainer. But:
