He also revealed that Coan’s foot injury was non-contact. It’s still not known when Coan will be back or if he’ll be back at all this season.

Chryst says that he doesn’t have to take a different approach with the team even with Coan hurt. He mentions that the injury was a “no contact” injury.

Well, here we are, folks. The Graham Mertz era is officially here. This isn’t how we planned on Mertz taking the torch, but life has a funny way of working out.

Either way, it’s now Mertz’s show until further notice, and that Chase Wolf is right behind him in case anything happens.

I’m not even joking when I say that Wisconsin should assign a security detail to Mertz. Keep him protected at all costs.

Our national title hopes now rest on his health and golden arm. Do whatever is necessary to keep him ready to roll.

Welcome to the big show, Mertz! We’re ready to show up and show out.
