    Default Hobo Week: SIU comes to town

    Looking forward to Hobo Day and the festivities that lead up to it. The forecast is hit or miss with a 30-40% chance of rain and low to mid 60's. It would be fantastic if mother nature could clear the chance of rain and give us a nice early October Saturday to enjoy the Jack.

    I'm hopeful for a return and added wrinkles to the creative offense we saw against Minnesota. That the D continues their aggressive style of play and utilizes the deep bench like they have been.

    We should win big but SIU has a couple explosive players on both sides of the ball.

    Offense:
    WR- Landon Lenoir
    RB- DJ Davis

    Defense:
    Anthony Knighton
    Jeremy Chinn

    All our all-MVFC type players but I'm not sure the overall talent and depth is present.

    I'm pretty sure Davis was injured in their last game and is out for a few weeks. He has burned us the past couple times we've played them, both on returns and running the ball

    You're right. I totally missed this. Sounds like a gruesome injury. Yuck!

    Chinn also injured per Zimmer:

    "Southern Illinois coach Nick Hill says the Salukis will be without running back DJ Davis when the Salukis face @GoJacksFB Saturday in the Valley opener. QB Stone Labanowitz and DB Jeremy Chinn are both questionable."

    Wasnt there an Lenoir at western? Lance maybe. He was good from what I remember.

    I always get a headache thinking about SIU. Their offense works against the Jacks and seems to give us fits. If Chinn can't play there defense will be pretty bad. Knighton is a good player though but I think our tackles can eliminate him. Crider and Giegling are okay and may make some plays.

    Every time I think of SIU I remember the 2009 November game where it was like 60-70 degrees and perfect out and both teams were ranked high and they came out and absolutely smoked us at home.

    Jerry Kill was the coach I believe.
