    Good Luck Jordan - get well.

    Vandenberg seems a bit fragile. This isn't that unusual for a very tall man who isn't very athletic. At best, State was going to get 5-6 minutes a game from him. That may not sound like much, but with Anya reporting to camp disguised as the Goodyear blimp, the remaining 7 scholarship players are going to need relief occasionally. Does State have any walkons who might contribute?

    It's okay, try not to worry yourself too much. There's always another scrub available to play his 3 mins per game allowance.

    Go Donkey!
