You lose a three-time All-American, and you start
thinking how are you going to rebound from something
like that? Well, Eastern Washington doing just that
last week against NDSU.
Spokane's own Stu Stiles stepping up in a big way
among that receiving core.
Now head coach Beau Baldwin says it's that depth that
if Cooper Kupp can't go again this weekend, the Eags
are going to have to lean on.
We felt that coming into the year, you know.
Coop gets talked dabout a lot, and we know that and
for good reason, but someone asked me did you talk
to the team when Coop was out? No.
It's not any disrespect to Coop, but it's who's in
for Coop, and let's go.
That's just the mindset we take and always have.
We have a great coaching staff that puts us in great
positions to win, and so with our group I think we're
going to do the same things whether Coop's out there.
Don't get me wrong, he's the best player in the nation,
and we're a bette team with him on the field, but
in his absence, we're going to do everything we can
as a receiving group to keep the train rolling.
Baldwin telling us today that Kupp is officially listed
as questionable ahead of this weekend's contest when
the Panther of Northern Iowa come to town.
Now the Eags have never beat them, 0-6 all-time.
They'll get another chance though as they finally
return to the red here on Saturday.
Kickoff is set for just after 4.
