Moving ahead minus Elston for a bit; new celebration attitude

Trae Elston will only sit for a half against Texas A&M, but a half is a lot of football for a secondary against that passing offense.

I think the punishment fits the crime. It’s been suggested that Elston was kicking at the ball. It’s still a kick, and that could hit an unintended target, in this case a player, Kenyan Drake, who suffered a major injury on the play. I think Elston’s actions were too quick to have known that.

At any rate, an Ole Miss secondary that was considered extremely back in the early summer has now lost Chief Brown, Tee Shepard, Carlos Davis, Anthony Alford and now Elston for half of a big game.

More from Bjork here on the after-Alabama celebration too.

Monday Presser

With Elston on the bench Hugh Freeze discussed his options at the position for the first half at A&M plus notes on a wide-open kicker competition this week.
