Clay Helton is nothing if not predictable.
He said Sunday night that JT Daniels will meet with doctors on Tuesday and if cleared he will start Saturday against Oregon State.
Typical Helton. Jack Sears has an impressive opening performance and Helton wants to immediately return him to the bench.
Why rob your team of a surprising mid-season spark?
Because it is always the star system that gets rewarded.
It is moments like these when I don’t have a lot of sympathy for Helton’s struggles.
Helton on Sears’ debut: “It reminds you of why we signed the kid. He has a very talented arm with mobility.”
Helton on making significant changes after losing two straight: “When we get done with these last four games, I’ll evaluate everything and see what we need to do. Right now, I’m more focused on trying to beat Oregon State.”
I can think of one significant change. But Helton is not the one who needs to make it. Lynn Swann is.
