Couple of notes from Greg McMackin’s radio show on 1420.
>> Defensive end John Fonoti told McMackin he will be ready to play at LaTech a week from today (Wednesday).
>> McMackin has given freshman linebacker George Daily-Lyles the option of playing instead of taking a redshirt year. He said Daily-Lyles can give the special teams a big boost
“It’s up to him, but I think he can help us win.”
>> McMackin admitted that jamming the UNLV receiver on the line on the last tourchdown might have been the way to go.
“Don’t get me wrong. I like our corners. But they’re young and they’ve got to learn the game.”
McMackin said he is considering putting wide receiver Royce Pollard in as a safety in third-down situations, as well as using two other receivers, Greg Salas and Rodney Bradley, to jam opposing receivers at the line in certain situations.
