Even though this week is an off-week for Troy football, we still invite the Trojan Nation to Trojan Talk tonight, either at our broadcast location at Santa Fe Cattle Company in Troy or by listening in on the Troy ISP Sports Network (affiliates are listed here) or online here. As we pointed out last week, Coach Blakeney is speaking tonight at the Montgomery Quarterback Club gathering, but there will be a couple of experienced hands to pinch-hit. Offensive coordinator Kenny Edenfield will take your calls from 7:00-7:20 and defensive coordinator Jeremy Rowell will do the same from 7:20-7:40! Both have been on Trojan Talk before and are very straightforward with their comments and in answering your questions, which can be submitted live by calling 1-866-736-5889. If you come out to Santa Fe to be a part of the show, we'll once again register for a drawing for an authentic game-worn Troy football to be given away, plus a free meal from Santa Fe's great menu!
The off-week also didn't stop the Troy coaches and players from their weekly press conference Monday at the Courtyard by Marriott. Jerrel Jernigan --the Sun Belt Special Teams Player of the Week this week-- was asked about his elbow injury and his instinctive ability to make people miss, and his response was typical Jerrel. He's an amazing player and an excellent representative of Troy. While I'm at it, here's audio from DE Mario Addison (whose first answer was about how his broken hand feels), QB's Corey Robinson and Jonathan Chandler (listen to his comments at the end especially), and Coach Blakeney.
Troy basketball has begun practicing, which means three things, all of which are good: the Trojans aren't far away from opening defense of their Sun Belt title, Taylor Bryan's media guide is not far away, and you'll be able to start following in earnest one of my favorite writers, basketball trainer Alyson Gramley, her blog, which can be found here. Head coach Don Maestri and senior Amazing Shooter Travis Lee met with the media on Monday and I was there to record it. Here's their audio.
Finally, the staff at Trojanvision on campus have done something this week that, if the response is positive, they'll try to do on a regular basis: Troy's win over Louisiana-Lafayette (and I will never call them "Louisiana") wasn't televised, but Trojanvision melded our radio call with the live video at the stadium and presented in on a tape-delay basis this week. If you happened to catch it and liked it, make sure to let them know. I think it's a great thing and excellent exposure for Troy athletics!
