Maxwell Smith still plans to play against Cincinnati with torn ACL

The Daily Aztec

Maxwell Smith is still planning to take the snaps for San Diego State in Thursday’s Hawaii Bowl… with a torn ACL.

Smith, who threw for over 1,500 yards and 13 touchdowns as a graduate transfer this year, suffered the injury in the regular season finale and has been getting physical therapy to get ready for the bowl, putting off surgery until after the final game of his college career.

He expects to play against Cincinnati in the Christmas Eve game, which is must-see TV for Big Blue Nation, considering one offense will feature a former UK starting quarterback, while the other will be led by Mark Stoops’ top target for his next offensive coordinator.

It will be televised at 7 pm on ESPN and you should do everything you can to escape the in-laws and see it.

The fact he is going to try and play with that injury is truly remarkable.

    Why do you all care more about players who are no longer with the program, rather than the current…get over your selves

      Smith is a good kid and what’s wrong with hearing something positive about a former player? Playing with a torn ACL isn’t the smartest move but Smith is all heart. If you don’t like hearing about former players then don’t read about them and leave negative comments.

    Smith wasn’t given anything coming in to San Diego State. He earned a starting position and has subordinated his interests to those of the team which primarily features a running attack. Throughout, he’s handled himself with total class.

    I’ll be pulling for him…
