Gators spring football and everything after

GAINESVILLE -- A few items to address before we begin breaking down the spring game.

1. Urban Meyer received his third commitment of the 2011 recruiting class this weekend when prep standout Jeoffrey Pagan of Asheville, N.C., committed to the Gators. A 6-4, 250-pound defensive end, Pagan committed to Meyer on Friday. Pagan, who is from Miami, made the trip to Gainesville for the spring game and told Meyer of his decision in person. Meyer apparently did a little dance when Pagan committed. Meyer can dance? Well, he was a shortstop in the minors. I've always contended that shortstops are the best dancers. On the bucket list: Dance with Urban Meyer at a Jimmy Buffett concert. ANYWAY, Pagan had scholarship offers from Alabama, USC, FSU, LSU, Notre Dame and Georgia. He told recruiting websites this weekend that he doesn't plan on taking any official visits (other than his official to UF, of course).

2. Sticking with the recruiting theme, Fort Lauderdale Pine Crest guard Brandon Knight will announce his basketball commitment at 4 p.m. Wednesday on ESPNU. Knight will choose between UF, Kentucky, Syracuse, Kansas and Connecticut.

3. I'm still sticking by my prediction that the Seattle Seahawks will select Tim Tebow with the 14th pick of the NFL Draft. Call me crazy.

4. While my original blog post on the idea was presented with a what-if slant, I now have serious reason to believe that if the Big Ten adds five schools and one of those teams is Notre Dame then the SEC will in fact consider adding teams but only if it's a slam dunk and benefits the league. Again, think big here: Texas and Texas A&M in the SEC West and FSU and Miami or Georgia Tech in the SEC East. Just a guess, but Florida would likely try and block the addition of Miami into the SEC. Of course, UF could always be outvoted by other members in a collective power play. FSU recruits primarily against UF, Miami, Alabama, Auburn and Georgia. Miami recruits primarily against UF and FSU. Also, keep in mind that Georgia Tech was an original member of the SEC. Of course, Notre Dame has a pretty sweet deal going with the BCS. My guess: As long as there is a BCS, Notre Dame will remain independent. If Notre Dame joins the Big Ten, then the gears of a national playoff might -- MIGHT -- slowly begin turning.

NOW TO THE SPRING GAME ...

5 TOP NEWCOMERS
1. Trey Burton, QB
: Gator Clause must take the time and thank Mr. Burton for making our editorial board look like a collective genius. The Gator Clause Board of Directors named Burton the spring's most improved player on Thursday. On Saturday, Burton accounted for 243 all-purpose yards and three touchdowns. Burton's 76-yard run was a thing of beauty and set an spring-game record for longest run from scrimmage. (UF began keeping spring-game stats in 1996.) Burton also did an excellent job at the end of the second quarter in leading the Gators' no-huddle offense. Burton completed five consecutive passes to get his offense in field-goal range.

2. Carl Moore, WR: Moore isn't really a newcomer but since he missed all of 2009 and played sparingly in 2008, we're including Moore in this list. Officially, I have no idea why Moore missed those two practices this spring, but it certainly wasn't because he feared competition. Moore was UF's best possession receiver on Saturday, accounting for eight receptions, 130 yards and a touchdown. Welcome back, Carl. Be smart this summer.

3. Mike Gillislee, RB: The rising sophomore from Deland was his usual steady self on Saturday. He had 10 carries for 47 yards and a touchdown on tired legs. No one worked harder this spring than Gillislee.

4. Josh Shaw, CB: Shaw was picked on plenty Saturday but the Californian kept battling and finished with a spring-game high eight tackles. He also had an interception. Shaw also made a nice play when he knocked down a pass over the middle intended for Carl Moore. Moore created a little separation but Shaw recovered quickly to make the play in one-on-one coverage.

5. Andre Debose, WR: After sitting out last season with a hamstring injury, Debose showed everyone in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium that he still has plenty of speed. In limited duty, Debose had two receptions for 30 yards. I like Debose and I like his aggressive demeanor. As much as he hates being compared to Percy Harvin, Debose and Harvin certainly share some of the same characteristics: toughness, confidence, quick first step, speed, play-making ability, etc.

HOMETOWN HEROES
Frankie Hammond, Jr., WR
: Hammond of Hallandale is such a smart receiver. It's fun to watch him play. His awareness on the field helped UF's quarterbacks on Saturday. Hammond had four receptions for 20 yards, including a touchdown. On the touchdown, Hammond noticed quarterback John Brantley scrambling, adjusted his route and got open in the end zone for his quarterback. Nice play, Frankie!

Moses Jenkins, CB: Jenkins of Lauderdale Lakes Boyd Anderson had a solid spring game. He made several impressive tackles, including one that prevented a touchdown and another that forced a fourth down inside the red zone. Jenkins finished with four tackles.

TOP FIVE PLAYS
1. Burton's 76-yard run was the day's rushing highlight. He made just about everyone on the Gators' second-team defense miss at least once.

2. John Brantley's 47-yard bomb to Deonte Thompson on the first play from scrimmage was a REAL football play. (sarcasm, people!)

3. Brantley's 14-yard touchdown strike to Carl Moore in the second quarter was excellent. Moore was at his best in the red-zone on Saturday.

4. Burton's 20-yard touchdown pass to Omarius Hines in the second quarter showed everyone that Burton is certainly capable of making quality throws.

5. Jordan Reed's 31-yard touchdown pass to T.J. Lawrence in the fourth quarter excited coaches, including offensive coordinator Steve Addazio who gushed about Reed's arm strength after the game.

OTHER STUFF
1. The first-team offensive line struggled at times to form a pocket for Brantley. Of course, the offensive line was without some of its projected starters.

2. Which reminds me. Offensive guard Carl Johnson, who sat out with a shoulder injury, was on the sidelines looking a little beefy. Let's hope Johnson's shoulder heals in time so he can be in shape for two-a-days.

3. The interception throw by Burton on the second-team offense's first play from scrimmage was a coach's fault. Of course, the coach who called the play was a student. Two students won contests to call the first offensive plays for each team. Brantley completed his bomb on the first-team offense's first play. Burton's bomb was predictable and was picked off by Josh Shaw. (Still, it was a great play by Shaw.) After the game, Burton said he didn't agree with the student's call, and instead wanted a designed quarterback run.

4. Plenty of South Florida recruits made the trip to Gainesville for the spring game. Some I've been able to track down: Eli Rogers, a wide receiver at Miami Northwestern; Jeremy Cash, a safety at Plantation; Ryan Shazier, a defensive end from Plantation; Curt Maggit, a defensive lineman was West Palm Beach Dwyer.

5. Other top recruits in attendance: Lateek Townsend, a top linebacker prospect from South Carolina; Mike Bellamy, a running back from Punta Gorda; Nick Waisome, a defensive back from Southlake; Ray Drew, a defensive end from Thomasville, Ga.

6. Defensive coordinator Teryl Austin told me that cornerback Adrian Bushell is currently not with the team while he deals with personal issues (most likely grades).

Certain teams are indirectly coerced into scheduling top 5 teams OOC because their conference stinks and strength of schedule hinders them at year end.

Hit the nail on the head. Miami has to try to schedule harder games because they play in a basketball conference. Funny how they pound their chest about it too. they are so pathetic.

Hey punk...that's my line about Gaynesville. What is it about you Turds, players, coaches and fans alike, that makes you prone to stealing?


but fireronzook.com WAS created by Turd Nation, yes?

that REAL football play was great.
Good job Joe, If you cant take a joke right??

Oh and to ZERO titles of meaning guy its clear that canes have gotten the best of YOU

...run garbled '70's laugh track...

Funny about LSU and their tough OOC...Les Miles is on the frigging hot seat if he loses 4 games...which he probably will do.

Cane in Turdland - yeah, it's burns their leather when they think about the boatloads of wasted money they've collected from "flair" of face decals, Bible inscripted eye black and RV passes and all they have to show for it is 3 NC's. Absolutely puts a burr up thie tail that little ol' Miami has 5 NC's and yet they are on proverbial food stamps. They'll never get it through their think outer layer that 'ships come as a result of great players and coaches...not payola.

I give up...I can't stand it anymore. I'm changing my fake Donna Shalala name for my REAL handle, cuz I'm special and people like me danggum it.

...don't forget great locales. I'm still bummed I can't buy lizard-on-a-stick outside before a Canes game anymore. Yo, I watch yo cau fo 10 dolla!

You forgot "no blockey, no blockey".

The canes were great in the past and haven't shown much now. Beat OU, lose to Clemson, beat GaTech, get crushed by VaTech. Narrowly escape Wake then get bulldozed by Wisconsin. Put it all together then talk. In the meantime U are mediocre and keep to Urselves.

Canes have always been on the low side of revenue and facilities, even when we won 5 championships, 3 undefeated. thats what makes what we have accomplished even better.

You bore me with your dribble...

All the more reason they're eaten up with envy


Pop quiz hot shot: If the Gators are so full of envy, why are U on a Gator Blog entitled "Gators spring football and everything after"?

Pop answer...the same reason your zealots are on the Canes sites day & night.

Yeah I just checked Manny's blog, can't believe your worrying about the Gator Spring Game when Bianca Eichkorn is leading University of Miami women's tennis team to 10th in the country. You guys are in the Top Ten in something! and better yet I saw no Gators trashing her!!!

Oops never mind.

Hilarious how Cane fans can invade the UF blog (must not be much going on over at the UM blog) and try to defend Randy Shennanigans. Almost any other Div-1 coach would be an upgrade. I am honestly surprised that they don't have a bigger name coach. Even hiring Bobby Bowden would cause wild street celebrations. Good thing for most Cane fans, they simply could drop their orange vests, garbage bags and pitchforks on the side of the Palmetto and join in the celebration...

Surely you mean the striped coveralls sported by the Gaytor alums, most of whom graduate from the football field to the hooscow.

Right now the Canes are 0-0, just like every other D1 school out there.

And Ur Right where U belong ...Fiddy/Fiddy

Watch the opposition run TE crossing routes all day long in 2010. UM linebacking is a cruel joke just like the QB position. Why U tards are so convinced that J17 is the truth is beyond comprehension. It really just illustrates how pathetic your QB play has been for a very long time.

Your unrealistic goals and all the HYPE. will come crashing down as your oline is in sorry shape. The paper thin duck throwing int machine dodged a BUNCH of bullets last year. U won't be so lucky in 2010... Not a chance. He was dealing with FIVE injuries after the Whiskey BEATDOWN.

EIGHT WINS TOPS

Your sorry program DID NOT improve despite TWO WHOLE WIN IMPROVEMENT. U lacked qualty wins, were gifted wins, and had epic losses. Keep thinking u got so much better. U DIDNT.

37-26 since joining All Creampuff Conference... PATHETIC

Wait, wait, wait right there...You're telling me that there's a person on the Miami women's tennis team with the surname, Eichkorn?

Finkle and Eichkorn. Eichkorn and Finkle. Finkle and Eichkorn. Eichkorn and Finkle. [DRAMATIC PAUSE] Wait, a second! Finkle is Eichkorn. Eichkorn IS Finkle.

npgator, cool your jets buddy. Miami will most definitly have more than one guy drafted. As for Percey was he even recruited by Urban? He was just plan lucky last year.

1. Stepped into a great offense(nobody game planed for Pansy) It is nice to have both Farve and Peterson.
2. Weak year for NFL rookies. Name me two other really good offensive rookies. IMO it was Sanchez that should have been Rookie of the year.
3. Next year he will be thought of more in game planning.
4. He would not have been rookie of the year on 2/3 of the rest of the NFL’s roster.
5. Pansy is overrated. Louis Murphy is better. Andre Dubose will have you gators forgetting all about Pansy and his entourage. From what I heard Harvin was a pre madonna that Urban had no control over.
6. He has no real position. A poor mans Reggie Bush.
7. He is light in the back side. Goes down way to easy.

.

.

Where to even start with U ? Comprehension certainly is not one of Ur strong suits, but I’ll go slowly and give it a try.

First, Harvin was a member of the 2006 Recruiting Class that will flood 8-10 players into this years NFL Draft. I’m pretty sure Meyer had something to do with it.

1. Sure, Professional NFL coaches gave no first, second or third thought to seeing Harvin lined up in the slot other than, say, to slide out an OLB like “Whiff” Sharpton to man up on him right? He’s all Ur’s Motion, belly’s, reverses, crosses or deep, it’s 1 on 1 for the headup OLB… And that Special Teams coach just told his Kicker to Blast it deep, cover guys keep Ur lanes and tackle him right ?

2. No doubt it must be the Fact that NO Miami players of any kind were drafted at all right ? And Sanchez with that 5 Pick game against the Bills combined with 12 TD’s - 20 INTs and 10 Fumbles over the season was HOF stuff. (closet jet fan huh?)

3. (see #1) Gee U think U Genius ?

“He’s a nightmare for defenses and special teams coordinators,” guard Artis Hicks said. “He’s got a bright future. I knew he was going to be good, but it just surprises me that he’s this good this quick. The sky is the limit for him.”

4. Ahhhhh, but he WAS …And if the Browns had drafted Tom Brady ? … typical Cane if’s and but’s Tard mentality.

5. He set Minnesota’s single-season franchise record for all-purpose yardage (2,081)… A Team that has been in the NFL for 50 years… What would U call Underrated ?

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/01/06/percy-harvin-nfl-offensiv_n_412777.html

6. Just when I thought U really can’t be any dUmber … Put on Ur orange n green glasses and try reading … The Multiple Set MOTION SLOT Receiver is the MOST Important 3rd. Down Conversion Position in ALL of Football … And of course, according to U and Ur infinite well of useless wisdom deem that none of these guys have a “True” position on the football field right ?

http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/spt/football/nfl/stories/101207dnsponflslotwr.3b25eb5.html

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/194030-the-top-five-slot-receivers-in-the-nfl

Devin Hester has no position either huh ?

7. That would make Ur projected 1st. Rd. pick Greg “tripped up by a blade of grass and knee shredding turf tripper” Cooper what?

Might wanna go easy with the “backside” and “going down” ANALogies there …

.

Got to give U credit on one thing the Riviera Rimrider … U certainly do put Duh U in StUpidity with all Ur senseless dUmb and baseless Uninformed bias opinions…

What do U say, U keep’em coming and I’ll keep knocking them outta the Park.

Now U and canesrule get back to Ur Fantasy NCAA College Football Video Game and let those that actually played the game on the field rather than with their thumbs on Ur parents 52 Plasma handle the real factual discussions here on this GATOR BLOG…

PS- Atleast Win an ACC ‘Ship before U pop off anymore.

April 13th, 2010 at 5:34 pm
Yeah 13 years in a row weren’t enough. This will only be the second year. Don’t worry the streak will start back up next year. If Cooper didn’t get hurt he might be one this year. Also don’t be surprised if Graham goes higher than most think. Randy Phillips is better than Major Wright and will be a better pro. Fox and Pouncey are about even. The funny thing will be when Sam Shields has a longer more productive career than Haden. Look for Sharpten to be just as good as Spikes. For the best class in gator history, they are looking like a bunch of average, short career pros.

Riviera Beach Says

3. Next year he will be thought of more in game planning.

And just why is that Genius?

Because D-Coordinators have finally figured out that they must now adjust and defend the no position guy on Offense ?

“He’s a nightmare for defenses and special teams coordinators,” guard Artis Hicks said. “He’s got a bright future. I knew he was going to be good, but it just surprises me that he’s this good this quick. The sky is the limit for him.”

Talent + Preperation + Execution + Opportunity =’s LUCK

.

.

StUpidity + Ignorance + Uninformed + Bias =’s Riviera

Now please tell us all about how next year Baily, Franklin, Hankerson, McCarthey will ALL 1st. Rounders next year ... And by all means go on how all those Jrs. like J-17, B.Harris, Benjamin, Telemaque, Fortson and ALL those Top Notch Wide-Outs will Declare and ALL be Drafted High because they're so damn talented...

I'm waiting ...

All too easy Arty … Just too damn easy .

It’s a really good thing that you’re not an NFL Scout Riviera. To even sugesst that Cooper, “if” healthy had a shot in the First round is simply stunning. Wright has worked his way up into the early-middle rounds and Phillips will be lucky to get drafted at all. Fox will be lucky to go before the 6th. while Pouncey will be a late 1 or early 2. Haden is a sure early to mid 1 while Shields will be lucky to get his name called at all. Then to suggest that Sharpton, lucky to go in the 5th. or 6th is as good as Spikes late 2nd. early 3rd. is off the charts stunning. Come on man, leave the bias homerism on the sidelines. Faith and hope is great, but not at the cost of your credibility… Do yourself a BIG favor. Don’t bring up these opinions in mixed company.

.

Maybe the Dolphins can trade up to get Cooper late in the 1st. Rd. next year !

And that boys and girls is what is commonly known as "getting dismantled."

This is the same guy that said Travis Benjamin is a better player than Percy. Stunning in it's udder stupidity. TB has had more "big games?" Wowee! Perc was a game changer his entire college career. Urban took special interest in recruiting Harvin. But u were at intramural practice when that was going on. Now Harvin is doing special things at the next level. Rewarch his 100 yard KO return on YouTube. Keep in mind that he did it up the MIDDLE of the field. He is the fastest "in pads" runner U will ever see and he makes laser cuts at FULL SPEED. U don't EVER get awarded NFL Rookie of the Year on accident. U discount Harvin based on MARK SANCHEZ??? Your dedication is admirable Riviera but U have to be about the dumbest guy, short if Canesrule, to ever comment here. (starting to believe U Are canesrule in a different dress)
Graig "I have bad hair and I run sideways" Cooper??? Surely U got an autograph from Cooper at a meet n greet and have been "starstruck" ever since.

Cheerup though Riviera, you have trumped Sarasota 'cane as All World Delusional Cane Tard. Your just not as old and bitter as he is... YET.

Get your gonads back from Butch and win the ACC before U pop off again U hear now?

5. Pansy is overrated. Louis Murphy is better. Andre Dubose will have you gators forgetting all about Pansy and his entourage. From what I heard Harvin was a pre madonna that Urban had no control over.

Pre madonna? Is that the period of time that preceded the pop-queen's dominance of the world as we know it? Circa 1983?

Supporters say that Shannon is deserving of a sizable bump in pay, pointing to UM's improving record, from 5-7 in 2007, to 7-6 in '08, and 9-4 last year. Shannon's backers point to former UM and current North Carolina coach Butch Davis, who is making $2.15 million a season even though he has a 20-18 record in three seasons with the Tar Heels. Shannon is 21-17 overall.

.

Exactly who are these Supporters ?

Lemme guess ... One's that have big mouths, small wallets, yearn for the 80's, have absolutely no say or no juice ... right ?

And it's only Summer Arty ...

Should be fun Coach.


.

"He is the fastest "in pads" runner U will ever see and he makes laser cuts at FULL SPEED"


that he is ...

Remember Riviera, Brandon Marshall is Lucky ...

Could Milian's story today have any more of a tentative feel to it? The beginning of the end has already BEGUN. Milian points out that this is by far the worst recruiting class that Shannon has had.

But Miami is coming back huh Jo?

Supporters say that Shannon's current lame duck status was used against him and offer that excuse, in typical UM fashion, as the reason that his class was relatively speaking, a disaster. Keep in mind that Randy coaches in a very winnable conference and is in the heart of the most fertile recruiting grounds in the nation. Yet he was taking left stealing recruits from Buffalo and Nevada State???

Newsflash O' Kings of Denial: It's not his lame duck status that led to his subpar class. It's a stack of reasons. Starting with his poor winning record. (fire up the Coker talk knowing all the while that Saban and Meyer completely debunk that myth)

Randy is known to play favorites. Just ask every white QB that has committed then transferred and except for the free schollie COACHES SON!

Randy alienates everyone from Patrick Nix to Uber coordinator Mark Whipple. ( WHIP reduced sacks by 7000% at D-2 UMASS) U can pump up John Lovett all U like but that guy is getting a free pass that makes Shannons extended honeymoon pass look like a rip-off. Can Lovett even spell the word adjustment? The Wisconsin Spelling Bee Committee thinks not. (fire up the "we were injured" excuses HERE canefan)

Donna's broom is bigger than Luther Campbell. And that statement is far more sweeping than you will ever admit. She finds that "strength and conditioning" gets in the way of study hall. (wink)


Your insistence that you have better athletes than everyone else is just flat false in 2010. Given your history of having unmatched depth it's an issue that U struggle with immensely. Actually you are pretty much ignorant on that front even though pushover Wisconsin was bigger and stronger than U by a landslide. ( here's where U fire up the "the final score was close...we could have won" even though every fiber in your soul knows that the Chumps Bowl was Wisconsin's to lose, not yours to win...big difference) Everyone is fast now delusional canefan...EVERYONE. Jimmy Johnson left the building a long time ago and U now longer corner the market on speed. U just don't.

The kids that the Florida schools are tussling over don't really give a crap about the past. They look at coaches, playing time, facilities, PRESENT day success (sorry fools, 'ships won by present coaching staffs are not the "past") If Johnny 5-star tours facilities at the elite schools then stops by the "Little School that Could", well, U lose. U have a very tough time with that as well. (cue canefan carrying on about recruiting rankings meaning nothing) Look at the analysis at firecoachshannon.com and you will begrudgingly begin to understand the no longer successful machinations of your once great program.

Yaaawwwwnnnn! Who cares about the Hurricanes? Let's talk about Ru Paul's Drag Race!

BLAH BLAH BLAH

3 > 0

Must suck that your school hasent accomplished what A small private school with no stadium, no fans, and bad facilities has accomplished on the football field.

Mission accomplished. Turd Nation has collective shorts up around their nads over Canes. Entire blog about Canes now...nothing to be found about Turds. Expect to see this strategy employed over & over again across all the respective paper's sites.

Now just how many glasses of warm milk and cookies do you think you boy needed to get his blood pressure down to a manageable level before he could doze off to his nightly dreams of Canes domination? I fell bad for this dude because he had just pulled 8 hours of griddle work at Waffle House and the smell of cheese grits with onions permeated his hair, skin and clothes. It's just not right that he has to come home and be subjected to taunts about his teams lack of accomplishments. Maybe we should cut him a break? Naw, too much fun!

Check this out from your boy...he was "en fuego":

Down Conversion Position in ALL of Football … And of course, according to U and Ur infinite well of useless wisdom deem that none of these guys have a “True” position on the football field right ?

I suppose Devin Hester has no position either huh ?

If Cooper didn’t get hurt he might be one this year. Also don’t be surprised if Graham goes higher than most think. Randy Phillips is better than Major Wright and will be a better pro. Fox and Pouncey are about even. The funny thing will be when Sam Shields has a longer more productive career than Haden. Look for Sharpten to be just as good as Spikes.

.
.

It’s a really good thing that you’re not an NFL Scout Riviera. To even sugesst that Cooper, “if” healthy had a shot in the First round is simply stunning. Wright has worked his way up into the early-middle rounds and Phillips will be lucky to get drafted at all. Fox will be lucky to go before the 6th. while Pouncey will be a late 1 or early 2. Haden is a sure early to mid 1 while Shields will be lucky to get his name called at all. Then to suggest that Sharpton, lucky to go in the 5th. or 6th is as good as Spikes late 2nd. early 3rd. is off the charts stunning. Come on man, leave the bias homerism on the sidelines. Faith and hope is great, but not at the cost of your credibility… Do yourself a BIG favor. Don’t bring up these opinions in mixed company.

Think that's bad? This dude cuts & pastes the same BS on Milian's site, Shandel's site, the Slantinels sites and the Herald's sites...all between midnight and 1 AM. Now what kind of lowlife has that going on? Talk about pathetic.

***Urban Meyer will resign after signing day***

The plan was to stay until after signing day and try to keep recruits. Typical Gators

Gators are already losing recruits as mentioned in other blogs and will lose more. They have figured out the scheme..

How's your discovery of Meyer's diabolical plan working out dypshyt?

You dumb cane tards I told you all last year that twiggy would go down in the first 4 games. Lets not forget how I told all you stupid fans that Miami would be 0-4 out the door, and that Randy would be fired. Why don’t any of you listen to me? I was right about everything that I post here and on all Miami blogs. None of you have any credit just shut up already. Miami sucks because I say so, nuff said. I am so full of myself I am even calling out Jo Goody for giving any credit to the team that I can't stop thinking about.

Time to trade in your Ouija board?

UF wins FLW College Fishing National Championship
Filed under Announcements, InsideUF (Campus), Top Stories on Tuesday, April 13, 2010. GAINESVILLE, Fla. — The University of Florida team of Matthew Wercinski of Gainesville, Fla., and Jake Gipson of Niceville, Fla., won the first National Guard FLW College Fishing National Championship on Fort Loudoun Lake on Monday after catching three bass weighing 7 pounds, 11 ounces for a three-day total of 10 bass weighing 29 pounds, 10 ounces.

I was saying that JJ said what every other knowledgable NFL man is saying...either publicly or privately...that he wouldn't take the guy with a 3rd round pick because he can't get him on the field.

Those are damn good stats...for a FB. Imagine what they might have been if he was a legit QB.

Those stats do look nice in triplicate. Thanks for that troll. No UM QB has ever has a four year run like that and no UM QB EVER WILL......EVER

Certainly not you!

Hai James.
