"This group we have coming in Saturday night, now, Blankenship and Tettleton, you'd better wrap those guys up, too," he said, "or they'll do the same thing to us."

Senior Antavious Wilson became a bigger fixture in the Herd offense against Western Carolina. His six catches for 98 yards were the most he had since catching seven passes for 119 yards in the Herd's 24-23 win over Ohio on Sept. 25, 2010.
Wilson said an improved chemistry with quarterback Rakeem Cato has led to a better connection.
"We work on it every day in practice," Wilson said. "Like Doc said, in practice, you work so hard that the game is easy."

HOLLIDAY SAID the two offensive linemen who missed Saturday's game - left guard Josh Lovell (left leg) and right guard Garrett Scott (left leg) - will be back at practice this week. He praised redshirt junior Alex Schooler, who stepped in for Lovell against Western Carolina.
"Schooler's one guy that I'm extremely pleased with," Holliday said. "He's playing as well as anybody. This is the first time we've really gotten anything out of that kid. I told him that."
As for other injuries, Holliday said Darryl Roberts, who has yet to play after spending part of the preseason in a walking boot, is still "a couple of weeks away." Running back Tron Martinez remains "in limbo" as he continues to recover from offseason knee surgery.
