The Blazers worked hard to get to where they are right now, which is still in Valdosta awaiting their playoff match-up next week.
The extra time is more than necessary for the Blazers, as the bye week will be used to get their star quarterback in shape.
Senior quarterback Willie Copeland bruised his ribs and left the final game of the season in the second quarter after rushing in a touchdown over West Georgia.
Here's the latest on his injury status:
"He's coming along slowly. We really don't know if he's going to be4 able to play or not. We were hoping that his progress was going to improve greatly this week. It has not. So we still go to wait and see," says VSU first-year Head Coach David Dean.
