He’s doing what? Yupp, you’ve read that correctly, I’m very surprised right now as he even was practicing at Washington State during the spring. It remains to be seen why he felt he needed to return to Arizona, after leaving back in the winter. Daniel Jenkins was expected to see the field quite often this season, as the running game is a huge concern for this team.

Teondray Caldwell will be the #1 guy heading into fall camp with no real competition. Caldwell showed signs of promise last season, especially when he got into the open field. The true question, is who’s going to be the #2 guy? Marcus Mason, Leon Brooks, and Theron West will all be involved in that situation. But, this may be the situation that incoming freshman Gerard Wicks is going to love.
My prediction is that Wicks will end up being the #2 running back come week 1 vs Auburn. Marcus Mason is also the likely candidate if it’s not Wicks. Mason had a solid spring, and showed signs of improvement. He’s not a #1 guy on this team like Caldwell, but can help the team in certain situations. If Wicks can end up picking up the offense fairly quickly, don’t be shocked to see him quite often alongside Caldwell. This has the potential to be a very solid 1-2 combo as both of these guys are fairly young and talented.
Now, we need to address the latest incident with Caldwell, and if he’ll even be charged or not. Here are quite a few tweets from Christian Caple of the Spokesman-Review regarding the incident with Caldwell.
Whitman County clerk says no charges have been filed against Teondray Caldwell, “but that doesn’t mean they aren’t going to be.” — Christian Caple (@ChristianCaple) May 16, 2013
It’s unclear whether Caldwell has to appear in court tomorrow. … — Christian Caple (@ChristianCaple) May 16, 2013
Whitman County clerk said court received order exonerating Caldwell from the conditions of his release, meaning he may not have to appear. — Christian Caple (@ChristianCaple) May 16, 2013
That order was filed on May 13th. Also worth nothing, again, that charges have not been filed. — Christian Caple (@ChristianCaple) May 16, 2013
Pullman PD confirms Caldwell was arrested May 7 after incident that occurred April 28. Details murky, though. — Christian Caple (@ChristianCaple) May 16, 2013
But after a series of conversations and interviews, police arrested Caldwell on suspicion of 1st-degree Burglary and 2nd-degree Assault. — Christian Caple (@ChristianCaple) May 16, 2013
That gives us an idea of what to expect, and I’m not too worried as I believe no charges will be filed. This is some good news, because we can’t afford to lose him especially with Jenkins no longer on the team. Mike Leach decided to allow the team back on Twitter, and Caldwell addressed the incident via Twitter
All these allegations but none of it is true! Don’t believe the media. I’m in good hands.

Here’s a quick write-up on the situation, that covers some details, but not much.
