Bill Stull Spared From Pitt's Season

Bill Stull is out indefinitely after tearing ligaments in his throwing hand this past Saturday. As the article states, this is a similar injury that Brian Brohm suffered last year. Brohm only missed 2 games, but speculation is that Stull will be sideline for longer, possibly the entire season.

PITTSBURGH -- Pitt quarterback Bill Stull is out indefinitely after needing surgery Sunday to repair a ligament injury in his right thumb that occurred during his first college start.

The injury is similar to that sustained a year ago by Louisville quarterback Brian Brohm, who missed two games after being hurt during an early season game against Miami.

Stull, a junior from Pittsburgh, was hurt when his thumb was bent backward on a handoff during the third quarter of a 24-3 victory over Eastern Michigan on Saturday night.

I don't want to go ahead and call Pitt's 2007 season a train wreck, but I will call it a car wreck, mostly because it's hard to get into a police chase in a train.
