CMU Injury Update

Here are some notes on the injuries to the football team heading into Saturday's game with Bowling Green.

-Ryan Radcliff will be the starting quarterback. Enos felt Radcliff responded well to being pulled last Saturday and feels he is just pressing too much at times.
-Paris Cotton is probable to play as he has been able to practice this week but hasn't been taking hits.
-Kashawn Fraser is questionable for Saturday as he is pretty much a game-time decision. Along with the loss of Joe Kinville due to suspension, the DE's will be thin.
-Safety Bobby Seay Jr. will be out on Saturday and Jahleel Addae is questionable. He did practice today after missing on Tuesday, but they need to see how his ankle responds. The secondary will be very thin on Saturday as LaVarus Williams is already out as well.
-Enos did say he will not remove redshirts in order to address the depth as he felt it wouldn't be fair to those redshirted players.

Kinville suspended by MAC

According to CMU Press Release:
The Mid-American Conference has suspended Central Michigan sophomore defensive end Joe Kinville one game for unsportsmanlike conduct during Saturday's game at Northern Illinois.
Kinville will not play in this week's game against Bowling Green.
"We support the Mid-American Conference's disciplinary action and apologize to Northern Illinois University and its football program," said CMU head coach Dan Enos. "We do not condone unsportsmanlike acts of any kind, and Joe understands that his actions have no place in the game of college football."
"I apologize to Northern Illinois University and its football program, my teammates, coaches and Central Michigan University for my actions on Saturday," Kinville said. "As a student-athlete, I am expected to represent my school and team with class, and I regret that I failed to do that during Saturday's game."

The suspension was due to a cheap shot in a pile up during the game. Kinville dropped an elbow or forearm on some Huskies. The play was not penalized but I personally saw it and was quite shocked it didn't get called.

McGuirk Arena/Kulhavi Court

I am currently working on the story for The Morning Sun but I can confirm through sources close to Central Michigan University that McGuirk Arena will be the new name of the athletics facility inside the CMU Events Center and that the arena floor will be called Kulhavi Court.

The arena is named after the McGuirk family which has been one of the most prominent families in Mt. Pleasant for some time while the floor is named after John Kulhavi, a 1965 graduate of CMU and frequent donor to the university that already has a dorm and business room named after him.

More to come in my story, just passing on the information.

Keyton & Cotton Injured

Some injury news for the CMU football team, sophomore guard Darren Keyton will miss at least the next two weeks with a leg injury and junior running back Paris Cotton is questionable for Saturday's game with NIU with a lingering ankle injury.

Cotton is CMU's leading rusher on the season with 514 yards and has six rushing touchdowns while Keyton has started all seven games at right guard for CMU this season.

With the injury to Keyton it appears that Eric Fisher will move inside from RT to RG and Mike Repovz will start at RT.

Also, senior linebacker Nick Bellore looks to be good to go this weekend despite tweaking his shoulder against Miami.

Olson out for the season

Central Michigan starting left tackle Jake Olson will miss the remainder of the 2010 football season due to a knee injury suffered during the Eastern Michigan game.

The coaching staff was hopeful for Olson to return this year but when swelling in the injured knee didn't subside, they knew surgery would be required, which forces Olson to miss the rest of the season.

Rocky Weaver will make the change from right tackle to left tackle for the remainder of the year while Eric Fisher will stay at right tackle.

Olson, a redshirt sophomore, started 12 games last season at left tackle and earned freshman All-America honors by
