Spring Footbal Updates: Demarco Cobbs to LB and injury report

Demarco Cobbs to LB

OU starting R OT Jarvis Jones out until as late as October

 Unfortunately, spring ball is always a tense time since the loss of a starter or great player to injury is not uncommon.  Jordan Hicks broke his foot the other day and he is out the rest of the spring. Reports are that he will be back in time for fall practice.  I'm not sure if Cobbs was getting looks at LB prior to this move, but apparenty Diaz is trying to find a place for this talented athlete. According to the linked Statesman' story: "Without a doubt his athleticism is what we want on our defense," Diaz said. "He's tough. He backs down from no challenges. He's got a great attitude."

Diaz does not sound at all disappointed with his secondary: "Diaz said cornerback Adrian Phillips, a converted safety, "has established himself as one of the most dependable players on our team." Diaz said he loves his safeties, adding "you could flip a coin" to determine the starters among Blake Gideon, Kenny Vaccaro and Christian Scott. "

Other news on scouting the enemy-Oklahoma star OT Jarvis Jones suffered a serious knee injury that may keep him out as late as October. OU has a big game in Tallahasee on Sept. 17 and they will certainly miss Jones. My football buddy is a Seminole so we are planning the trip to Tallahasee. I told him that I'm not an SEC type guy. I'll be cheering for FSU, who I usually don't care for at all. Do we need to be more like the SEC and support our conference at all cost? Who will you support on Sept. 17?
