The Owls are hobbling through a crucial stretch of conference play, dealing with injuries to some of their top players on a roster that already had depth issues.

While it will char, it won't ignite, he said. And termites won't eat it. Since it's mostly air, he said, "my joke is, if termites ate it, they'd die from gas.
