Really? The other foot? What did I do to deserve this?

Wow, there's bad luck and then there's BAD LUCK. After overcoming rumors that his recovering broken left foot would keep him out of spring practice, Dave Plati has now let us know that Nick has had a set back on the other foot.

QB Nick Hirschman broke the exact same metatarsal bone in his other foot over the weekend (he was walking and just stepped on it wrong, he was not in any athletic activity or conditioning); he flew home to California today where he will have surgery later in the week.

We wrote earlier today about how Nick and Connor Wood would be the main competition for the starting spot heading into next year, but we're already down a QB. The injury leaves Wood, redshirt freshman John Shrock, and Stevie Joe Dorman as the quarterbacks entering spring.

Alongside the news about Hirschman, the athletic department also released the spring practice depth chart and schedule.

Now dig into that depth chart and let us know what you think.
