Redshirt senior Toney Baker is finally back. After promising freshman and sophomore seasons, he was sidelined with injuries through most of 2007 and all of 2008. The N&O has a writeup about him in today’s paper, and it sounds like he’s doing well.

Baker, now a senior, hasn’t played since tearing a knee ligament in the 2007 opener against Central Florida but finally feels right again.

“I feel like the old Toney,” he said after practice Monday. “No question. Each day I can feel myself getting better and more explosive.”

Baker kept an online journal for us his freshman season. It’s worth revisiting as we approach the Sept. 3 opener against South Carolina.
