Just a quick update on the condition of Rudy Carpenter from today's Monday press conferences:
Dennis Erickson said he has to see how RC does during practice this week to see if he will be able to play this Saturday at Southern California. He also said that Rudy will have to be at 100% strength to take the field in Los Angeles.
Carpenter's personal outlook was much more bleak. He told the gathered press that he has no idea what's going on with his foot. Worse yet, Rudy entered the room limping pretty badly and was wearing a walking boot.
Carpenter has started 36 consecutive games since 2005, the 2nd longest streak in the nation behind Purdue's Curtis Painter.
