Hope you all enjoyed Dwight Tardy's 200+ yard breakout vs. UCLA, because that's the last we'll see of him this year. Tardy tore his ACL on his last carry of the game vs. the 'Ruins. I guess it's Kevin McCall, Marcus Richmond and whoever else the rest of the way (Chris Ivory will NOT travel to Cal this week).
I have to admit I really thought McCall ran well last week. He's big, strong and physical and didn't hesitate at all, in fact I don't think I've ever seen him look better. But, still. Damn. We get one thing to really feel good about this year, and then it's back to reality this week. Tardy wasn't going to be the "x" factor this week, but clearly a commitment to balance is our only hope on offense the rest of the way. We'll see how the backups do, but this could be the biggest injury of the season.
