Pac-12 Debates Injury Reports

Years from now, perhaps Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez will be lauded as an innovator. As calls for an NFL-style standardized injury report in the Pac-12 become louder and more persistent, Rodriguez doesn’t seem to care much. Partially, he said, because he doesn’t really care about opponent injuries in the first place. Also: Arizona already releases an NFL-style injury report each week that lists injured players as probable, questionable, doubtful or out. “We kind of started doing that a few years ago when we were at Michigan,” Rodriguez said on Tuesday’s Pac-12 coaches call. “It just made it a lot easier. We didn’t have to have questions all week about it, so we kind of adopted that policy.” Some Pac-12 coaches aren’t quite as forthcoming with such information/Christian Caple, SR. More here.

Question: Should Pac-12 coaches, like WSU's Mike Leach, be required status of injured players each week?
