We just wrapped up with Dabo's press conference, and he would not say for sure that Xavier Thomas will play on Saturday. He did say that Tre Williams will play, so that will help! As for Mukuba, Jones and Greene, we'll probably have to wait until a couple hours before game time when I get the availability report.
We also spoke with Will Shipley, Walker Parks and Tyler Davis. Interestingly, Shipley told me that he thought he made a mistake by extending the ball across the goal line on the game-tying touchdown in the 4th because it was not a 4th down, and he put the ball in jeopardy. It was a spectacular effort and worked out for the Tigers, but we've seen so many players lose the ball for turnover in those situations. I'm sure Dabo was thrilled with the result, but he might use it as an example of what not to do, unless it's on 4th down of course.
