Harrison, R. Cobb are Game Captains

Oct. 9, 2009

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Strong safety Calvin Harrison and wide receiver Randall Cobb will be the game captains for the South Carolina contest, Coach Rich Brooks has announced.

Game captains are usually chosen on the basis of performance in the previous game. Harrison, a senior from Columbia, S.C., made seven tackles in last week's game vs. Alabama. Cobb (Alcoa, Tenn.) amassed 186 all-purpose yards vs. the Crimson Tide, including a 45-yard touchdown catch.

Harrison and Cobb will join permanent captains Zipp Duncan and Corey Peters at the pregame coin toss.

Three Starters Out: Coach Rich Brooks has confirmed that three starters will not make the South Carolina trip because of injury – cornerbacks Trevard Lindley (sprained ankle) and Paul Warford (quadriceps strain) and offensive tackle Justin Jeffries (strained Achilles tendon).

Brooks said that sophomore Randall Burden and freshman Martavius Neloms will start at cornerback while junior Brad Durham will get the call at right tackle.

“Somebody once told me, ‘People don't want to hear about how you loaded the wagon, they just want the wagon loaded,'” Brooks said when asked about the injuries. “We have to load the wagon regardless of who we have loading it, so that's part of the deal. It's time to have the wagon loaded and pull it out of the depot.”
