Cowan Likely Done

Well, Pat's time as a Bruin could be done. He has damage to his ACL after injuring his leg in practice Thursday. The doctors have to wait for the swelling to go down before they determine if surgery is necessary. If it is then that's basically all she wrote for Cowan. It can take almost a year to recover from that type of injury and with Pat a red-shirt senior, his days in the blue and gold would be over. Ben Olson may need a screw put into his foot. He broke the bone and is expected to be out 6-8 weeks. Which would make him available for Fall camp if his recovery is on track.

It looks like the rebuilding season may start at quarterback as well. If Olson isn't ready to go or if he hurts himself again for a fourth straight season, then Craft or Forcier will be the starter for the season. Boy, Neuheisel and Chow had some foresight in picking up Kevin Craft. I can almost guarantee that he'll be the starter at some point in this 2008 season.

I'm as big a believer that Olson could have been a great quarterback given a better offensive system, but I think it's time to start looking at what our other quarterbacks have, especially given Olson's propensity to get injured. He's like the walking wounded.

At this point, I'm hoping Craft is the starter in 2008 and Forcier backs him up.

I have to agree. I hate to put it this way but it feels like we're "wasting" practice reps on Olson and Cowan. They get all the practice, get better, and then get hurt and an inexperienced backup has to carry the team the rest of the season. I don't know if Craft or Forcier are going to be any better but I would love for them to have a chance to prove themselves.
