Mims, Booker back in action

So, quarterback T.Q. Mims and receiver Greg Booker will return to Minden's lineup in time for Friday's game against Neville.

Minden coach Alan Ensminger said as much tonight, when I called to check on the status of the Crimson Tide's All-Area twosome.

Mims and Booker were benched for last Friday's game against Springhill for disciplinary reasons, according to Ensminger. Not surprisingly, without the main cogs of their explosive offense, the Crimson Tide were upset 38-13 at Springhill.

You've got to wonder what effect sitting out last week's loss to the Lumberjacks will have on those two.

Will they be rusty, especially with only one game under their belts this season? Will they be extra motivated to prove their absence was the primary reason the Lumberjacks prevailed? Will they still be upset about this blemish on their records - both on and off the field?

Friday will provide a unique test of their resolve. They'd better be up for it. Neville has to be chomping at the bit for revenge after Minden knocked them out of the playoffs last fall.
