August 31, 2011As 7 p.m. Saturday at Qualcomm Stadium gets closer and closer, roster changes and depth charts are starting to become more and more clear for San Diego State head coach Rocky Long.
He spent about five minutes on Wednesday giving the media insight into his Aztecs roster:
High praise for SDSU
Cal Poly has taken down SDSU both times in their last two meetings, but third-year head coach Tim Walsh wants his Mustang fans to slow down on the three-peat wishes.
"Everybody around Cal Poly wants to talk about a three-peat," Walsh said. "Well unfortunately, we're not playing those same teams."
Walsh knows this SDSU squad is not the same as those Chuck Long used to coach. The Aztecs are not only better record-wise, but Walsh said player-wise, they have some of the best athletes in the country.
"All the sudden now we're playing against a 9-4 bowl-game winner with arguably the best throwing quarterback in the United States in Ryan Lindley coming back and one of the best tailbacks in Ronnie Hillman coming back," he said. "We've got our work cut out for us."
SDSU owns the all-time series record 13-11.
Long said it's an online class transcript that is the basis for Ezell Ruffin's issues. He had no update on the receiver as of Wednesday evening. Long said all other academic issues on the team have been "resolved."
