\ — Senior linebacker Irv Spencer has not practiced yet this week but Johnson expects him to practice tomorrow. The coaching staff will determine his availability for Saturday’s game based on how he looks. He left the field on crutches in the third quarter against the Cardinals.\

\ — When scouting Duke, Johnson noticed an interesting trend. Last week, Duke quarterback Thaddeus Lewis threw for 246 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Blue Devils to a 20-14 win over Northwestern, ending the nation’s longest losing streak. But they attempted only two passes in the second half. So, Mids defensive focus will still be on the ground. “For us to be successful, we have to limit them running,” Johnson said.\

\ — Towards the end of practice, a huge yacht hosting a party sailed by on the Bay. It looked like Vinny Chase and the rest of the Entourage were out celebrating the sale of Medellin\0x2026too bad it bombed at Cannes.\
