AustYn Carta-Samuels Out vs. TCU

Didn't make the trip to FW due to extreme fear.

According to the Casper Tribune, some stupid Wyoming paper, starting Quarterback AustYn Carta-Samuels will miss the TCU game. He apparently didn't even make the flight to Fort Worth this morning, and the speculation is that he has a hand injury sustained last game. I, however, believe he is missing the game because he has seen and experienced that carnage that a Wyoming quarterback and every quarterback this season has endured against the vaunted TCU defense, and he just didn't show up to the flight.

More importantly, this makes my Players to Watch (the backup QB's for those who didn't read) incredibly spot on and has filled me with a completely un-entitled sense of accomplishment. I cannot predict the future, I might not be a genius, and I am not responsible for Carta-Samuel's no-show in Fort Worth. However, if people in Vegas get wind of this little blog and see that Carta-Samuels is out and see that I predicted his backups to be players to watch, there might be a swarm of pissed off mobsters headed my way...

That's the link. It's amazing how vague and shady Wyoming was with regards to this "injury". I really do think he's just being a big vagina.

I was on the fence regarding betting this game. Now I took TCU - 35 and the over 49 and feel pretty good about it.

I think we get at least 7 from D/ST.

Carta-Samuels didn't play because he had an injury sustained the week before the game in practice, not because he missed the flight. It's standard at every school to not let injured players travel if they definitely can't play. And it's also standard to not disclose any information to the press regarding player injuries.
