    I think Stepp offers the smash-mouth of aged brandy.

    I agree. Let’s get him healed and ready for Utah.

    These injuries could be worse, I'll think we'll be fine.

    The 8 receivers in rotation, does that include Kyle? Or is he a redshirt and a walk on is included?

    Interesting Jay (my name too). Looks to me like he damn well needs to find a school within about a month. Does SC have quarters!?!? It looks like 2 semesters to me with a summer session where a lot of schools have quarters. He needs 3 quarters to play next season not including a summer school to complete an “academic year”. He needs to start by mid October.

    I think we can afford to rest Rector for the BYU game IMHO. We’ll need him healthy for Utah.

    One day is not enough to acclimate. I think the practice with up tempo should help.

    One extra day isn't going to do much, although it wouldn't hurt either. Full acclimation to higher altitudes takes about a week and even up to several weeks for some people. They all have to stay extra hydrated because the air is colder and very dry. I'm sure they'll have plenty of oxygen on hand. I don't see a problem other than the rigorous game they'll be playing. The team doctors and trainers know exactly what they are doing to have them ready to play at a higher altitude.

    Fight On! Beat the blue kittens!

    Recent Argonne military studies suggest time zone changes of one day for three time zones. Altitude studies agree on a one week, but the recommended alternative is t0 come on the same day for stated activity, because two to five days does not improve acclimation.

    When I'm flying in to a city that is at a much higher altitude, I'd rather just get there for the day and do what I need to do, because it's the SECOND day that I feel like crap. The longer I'm there, the worse the headaches are for me.

    I wish we could just get into Provo 20 minutes before the game, and then have oxygen on the sideline for the guys to use throughout the game. They need to be sucking oxygen in the first and second quarter, because it'll really start to hurt in the 4th quarter, but by then, it's too late.

    Exactly, as military tests have proven

    I was thinking the same thing. Routine should be at least two nights sleep at altitude. They could have flown in Thursday evening or Thursday morning and practiced in Utah on Thursday.

    It's more expensive obviously, but taking a chance on losing due to conditioning is costly also.

    Maybe spend a few days practicing at Rim of the World High School during the week of games like this?
