Another win over little brother, another week where a beaming Kirk Ferentz addresses the media with candor and non-answers and references to a bygone era.
I’ll lead with the biggest news of the week: starting right tackle Ike Boettger is out for the season with an Achilles injury. This means Sean Welsh is sliding one spot over, while Keegan Render is moving from left guard to right, and Ross Reynolds is filling in at left guard off the bench. I’m not sure what’s driving the shuffling, but I’m going to trust the staff here.
Ferentz goes into the Boettger injury in greater detail later on. Let’s get to it:
Q. With Boettger’s injury, does that change your thinking on Tristan?
KF: I think it just pushes him forward.
