Turcotte Out for Maine 

Tim Throckmorton

The UMaine football opener is tomorrow night at 7:00 and Maines pre-season All American will not be in uniform.Jared Turcotte has a groin injury and doctors feel as though he’s not ready to go full speed.The Black Bears will open the season against division two opponent St. Cloud State. It’s a game that on paper Maine should win so holding Turcotte out just might be the smart thing to do anyway.Last year he was the teams leading rusher as a freshman. The Lewiston native is Maines top running back, but quarterback Mike Brusko said this afternoon that there are three other strong backs that were going to see playing time anyway.
