    Babs,

    Are you just too young or have you forgotten how track impeded the football careers of Lam Jones, James Lott, Eric Metcalf, and Jamaal Charles, among others?

    Where’d I say worried? Bit of a stretch brosef

    Generally known that more practice=more better player

    Ouch, double teamed. Didn’t he skip track one year? And still wasn’t that good.

    All the more reason he needs practice time. He ain’t Allen Iverson

    Who skipped a year?

    Small town, your best athletes typically participate in multiple sports, with the classic example perhaps Hart Lee Dykes.

    As a senior, what does he need to be doing in the spring that track workouts won't accomplish?

    I would also remind you that we went to a Philadelphia track meet to look at a couple of kids, when everyone started talking to us about "Metcalf". We didn't know who he was, but soon learned. Terry Metcalf had Eric's future mapped out including Olympics with a large shoe contract, and then narrowed the choices to Texas and Tennessee because of track. Fortunately, they chose us.

    i'm with sabre. gotta let the big dawgs eat!


    i think the fastest men in the world working on their speed is kinda practice. i honestly think baseball in the spring is more of a conflict, but not track.

    Normally I would agree, but I am not sure Malik would have progressed enough to justify staying in school. If he had not learned to include pass coverage into his style of play from Strong and Orlando, he probably had plateaued. Third rounders in the NFL may not be expected to start, but they have to be contributors in year 1.

    SMH...I just don't get it. There has to be more to this...
    Oh well, looks like LJH will pick up that slack.
    Still scratching my head on this one though.

    I'm very comfortable wishing Reggie the best. Sometimes things are just more complicated than team allegiances and clashing with coaches.

    If he had transferred to a JUCO near his hometown, or a D-1 school and sat out a year, I would have probably understood the situation a little better.

    Surprised Fromm is that high. I like the guy but I expect he'll have a bit of a sophomore slump after losing their 2 star RBs.
