  1. My grandfather is a native Hawaiian. I'll always have an extra bit of pride for Polynesian mean green players.
  2. It's going to be interesting to see how this team (and staff) deal with a season full of expectations, instead of a ton of people just happy we don't suck. I think they respond well, just another interesting facet.
  3. He does a fundraiser in Dallas, every year. It's happened twice. My dad is a huge steelers fan and we've gone twice and had a pretty good time. There's a silent auction and a live auction and usually some pretty good food from restaurants around dallas. My dad won the trip to steelers training camp they auctioned last year and we had a really good trip. The event was held last weekend.
  4. I noticed that as well, but then I watched the few times his QB threw it on film... lol
  5. I watched some of his highlights, and I'm not the best at evaluations, but I'll give it a go from what I saw. - Pretty Quick off the ball for his size - Finishes blocks - Great Size and seems pretty strong already (605 squat on his HUDL max) - Plays physical and to the whistle - Biggest weakness is probably he lets guys get inside and could get some more arm extension/separation.
  6. offers from McMcneese and LaLa (Which I refuse to call Louisiana). Had at least visited Texas State. Rated 3 stars currently. High three star, like 85 or something...
  7. Accrued offers from UTEP, ULM, USM, SHSU, NMSU. Committed to us today.
  8. This is a huge point I think that's missed on the boards. God/Evolution (whatever you believe), has only created so many 290+ lb men that can run 40 yards in under 5 seconds. G5 in general is not a bastion of D-line talent. You got one all-american at Houston, and another of similar caliber that just graduated from UTSA. Ware from troy a few years back, etc. But athletic, talented behemoths go to big programs. With that being said, I think UTSA takes some huge steps back defensively, as no one or no rotation will replace Davenport. I think our offensive line will actually be significantly improved this year. Maybe it's a gut feeling, but I also think having a full red-shirted crop of o-line will really help us this season. And Manase Mose is the "Tyreke Davis" of the offensive line. Almost everyone said he could/should have started last year, but the staff wanted to bank that year. That's a decision the last staff would have never made. My concerns are really as follows in order from biggest to least: LB, D-line, RB. With linebacker, we just lacked any ability to beat talented run teams to the edge, whether that's shedding blocks, understanding schemes, or pure speed, it was definitely an issue. EJ was a bright spot, garner still scares me, if they can get JoJo ready, I actually expect him to be a difference maker. He had a lot of really good plays/athleticism just needs to raise the consistency and that will come with more reps. D-line is of course the Bryce English question. I think Rod will be a difference maker at end, just not sure we'll be able to afford to keep him out there if there are any injuries, similar to last year. He is really athletic for his size and I think he helps us on the edge a great deal. There's a reason they wanted him there last year. From either of these two groups we need a consistent pass-rusher to emerge. Without pressure, this defense is a sitting duck. This system operates with pressure, and we have not gotten a consistent amount form anywhere. It's the key to improving that 35 points a game. And honestly, i don't care where it comes from. If TJ/Bryce can force a double often enough, I think we could be alright. At RB, i'm just not sold on Smith and Co yet. Jeff, like lance, was special. Maybe we continue the RB magic, but Smith isn't built like the prototypes of the past. Not a lot of successful teams are RB by committee. The upside is that spreading everyone out in the pass, and having a productive pass-catching backfield can help close the gap. Hopefully.

    We do not need to be losing bodies on the d-line... /cries
  11. I heard the moving on was academic... and there's a good chance he'll be going JuCo
  12. First D1 scholly for the school since the 50s. That's a pretty cool story to tell your kids about.
  13. I think this comes down to plain and simple enforcement issue. They can't suspend the entire NCAA and they can't police millions of people well enough, add in fake accounts and people trying to set up other teams, it would be a nightmare. Currently the Wild WIld West.

    Are you sure it was an offer and not a suggestion?
