GUS MALZAHN

-- "Same out a little sluggish" on Tuesday. Responded well today. Third down focus Tuesday, red zone today. Scrimmage of 100-120 plays Saturday with live extra points and field goals.

-- Eli Stove did tear his ACL on practice before spring break. "We expect him to return next season, and possibly even early."

-- Jarrett Stidham threw to receivers, will wait till Tuesday for 7 on 7. Won't throw in Saturday's scrimmage.

-- Ryan Davis was out due to "flu symptoms"

-- Jordyn Peters (right knee) expected to scrimmage.

-- No limitations to Dontavius Russell or JaTarvious Whitlow

-- Scrimmage on Saturday will be big for running backs, won't give an order before than

Is “next season “ 2018 or is ‘18 “this season “?

Technically it's next season, but I always hated that terminology because it can be easily confused... I stumble every time I say "next weekend" to clarify exactly what I mean.

I still think 2018 is too optimistic for Stove. I hope I'm wrong but that's Auburn fast.

We were led to believe Lawson was going to bounce back from his spring ACL tear in 2015 also.  I'm no doc but I really doubt Stove is going to be ready to cut on that knee by Sept. or Oct.

They were discussing whether or not Stidham would play in Aday this morning on Jox.  If he does I hope it’s one series and out. I’d love to watch Malik lead the offense with Gatewood getting some work as well.  Is Adams still on the team?  I’m not sure who would come out for clean up duty this year.  I’m not sure it really matters if anyone RB stands out prior to Washington.  Seems like whoever Gus picks gets replaced 3 games in by the eventual go to.  Dyer, Bubba, Robinson etc
