Still no clarity on Buss’s health
Less than two weeks until Montana kicks off its 2018 campaign, but still no clarity on the health of it’s most celebrated player.
Preseason defensive player of the year Josh Buss sat out all 15 spring practices for Montana after undergoing off-season shoulder injury; now sources have indicated he may have also suffered a torn pectoral muscle during a summer weightlifting session.
If anyone’s quashing the rumors, it’s not head coach Bobby Hauck.
“He’s had some major health problems and we don’t know the degree he is going to be available to us,” Hauck told ESPN Missoula in July. “We will see how that goes. Hopefully, things come around for him but he has some health problems.”
During the offseason, the Griz opted for a 4-2-5 defense, with fifth-year senior Shayne Cochran and fourth-year junior Dante Olson taking the majority of snaps at inside linebacker. Whether this scheme will stick or not will depend on whether Buss can suit up.
