Since the fine folks at the News Press in Southwest Florida were kind enough to mention one of Big Blue View's Rucker masterpieces, I have to give a little shout back to them.
I did learn a couple of things about Rucker in the piece.
One, he feels like he has a chance to make the squad despite the numbers seemingly being stacked against him.
"Things seem to be pretty open ... It's a pretty good situation. All I really want is to be healthy and have a chance to compete.''
Two, Rucker's girlfriend was killed by a drunk driver and he was involved in starting the Mothers Against Drunk Driving chapter at his alma mater, Eastern Illinois.
Rucker seems like a good guy. Hard to root against him, even though it seems he has almost no chance of making the team unless a bunch of guys get hurt.
