Franklin: Cannon Has 'Disappeared for Us Right Now'
The offensive MVP of preseason camp was Adrian Cannon. I did a big story on Cannon, writing about how he turned his academic and football careers around after a disappointing fall 2008, and about how the touchdown catch in last season's Humanitarian Bowl provided a springboard.
Well, Cannon didn’t have a catch against Middle Tennessee. I asked offensive coordinator James Franklin about Cannon and he said:
“Cannon is a guy who we were very excited about going from spring to the summer, and we still have high expectations for him. It just has not happened, for a number of different reasons. We had a long discussion today, and this week and this weekend, and he knows he needs to pick his game up and start making some plays because he has kind of disappeared for us right now.”
So far, Cannon has 10 catches for 85 yards in three games. But coaches obviously feel he can do more. It's something to watch for on Saturday against Rutgers.
