Seth Emerson takes the final, fateful step.
Prediction: Chubb starts against North Carolina. There, I’ve moved to that position, after saying for months that he would just get his feet wet in the opener, which itself may have been optimistic. But Michel’s injury has ramped up the timetable, and while I would still bet that Chubb’s carries are limited in the opener, we’ve learned at this point to discount Chubb at our own peril. Plus, I personally watched Chubb play dodgeball, and he looked fine.
Tongue-in-cheekiness aside, if Chubb does in fact start, that is one amazing story.
The only downside is that the more likely he is to start, I suspect the less likely Michel is to play.
