Highlights from Coach Partridge's week one presser:

Opening Statement

We are excited to be in game week. We started preparation Thursday, but to actually be here on a Monday on a game week is a great feeling. A couple of comments on Reggie [Bain]. Like we said in the press release, we are not going to give out details about the specifics of the injury. He is in great spirits. He is getting great medical care. I was with him and his family right away on Friday after the traffic accident. I also saw him yesterday and on Saturday. So, I have been at the hospital every day. The most important thing is that he is safe. He is supported. From a big picture standpoint he is in a very good place.

Our current mission is 100% Southern Illinois. I have a ton of respect for Nick Hill. Nick played quarterback there. You can feel them building buzz around his program. I saw a clip where he was driving students to class on his golf cart. I love that. I may steal that idea. Offensively, he was their offensive coordinator last year. They averaged 498 yards per game, which was a record-setting year for their conference.  [He] hired defensive coordinator Kraig Paulson, who has a ton of experience. He was at Montana, UNLV and he clearly has a heck of a system with the defense.

Our intention is to send out a list of projected starters, probably Wednesday. We will get into actual two-deeps in the weeks following.


What will change on the offensive line?

Left tackle you will see Dillon DeBoer, left guard Tarrick Thomas. At center you will see Roman [Fernandez]. Right side remains intact with Sug [Antonyo Woods] and Kelly Parfitt. That is our starting linemen.


Moving Dillon to outside. Is that because of his experience?

It is a combination of things. We know he has the athleticism to do it. We put him there on Saturday. He was like a fish thrown in the water. He was very comfortable. His experience at center and running a lot of the calls helped in him translate to a good first day. Byers [Hickmon] is back with us. So we will continue to get him accumulated again with full-go stuff.


What stands out about Southern Illinois?

We are looking at their offense from last year and we are really looking at UNLV’s defense because that is where Coach Paulson is coming from. We go to Southern Illinois defense for personnel reasons. Number five [Chase Allen], their linebacker, is one of their top players and he is an all-league type of guy. That jumped off the defensive film. The have transfers at the corner positions and they moved their corners into safeties so you have athletic guys moving into safeties. Schematically, what we see is a clear system. Sometimes you look at a film and you have no rhyme or reason. This guy has a system and that means that they are going to be well-coached. They are going to know what to do. Offensively, they are very fast-paced. There is a carry over to what we see daily to what Coach Hill is going to do with his staff on offense. They have named their starting quarterback. There is also a very athletic quarterback in No. 7 [Matt DeSomer] who will also play and we will have to defend him specifically when he is in there and they have a running back from Apopka, No. 5 [DaQuan Isom], who is extremely athletic. He had a big play in the Spring Game from reading the clips on that. There is athleticism and there is confidence on their offense and their defense has a system.

It's not like we're gonna play with starters only. We're not putting out the 2-deep depth charts anymore?
