Florida, as mentioned on another thread, landed Tim Teebow, the top ranked HS QB out of Alabama. This caused Josh Portis, Florida's blue chip freshman QB, to transfer immediately, leaving Chris Leak as the only QB with game experience. This is evidence of Teebow's talent. He's given a 15 percent chance of beating out Leak next year.

Congrats to Colorado on winning the Dan Hawkins sweepstakes -- the Boise State coach is going to be a GREAT fit there.

And it's causing havoc up here because no one knows what's going to happen with Brent Schaeffer's recruiting. Apparently he had a really good official visit here and really hit it off with Bielima. The question is, can he ever get playing time at FL. If he thinks he has a decent shot at it, he's going Gator.

No, I can't blame him at all. He'd be dumb (but welcome) to come to WI if he could play at FL.

My bigger concern is that he'll end up at NC State. He's making an official visit there pretty soon. Hopefully he hates it . . .

if you notice, Jeff, many of us went heavy on SM. I know it goes against the philosophy of the chicken, but a little research might have helped in this instance. SM was much the better team and Ark St played over its head to keep it close. Still, I have a feeling the chicken will have its day.

So we've got two games tomorrow night....BYU v. Cal and Colorado State v. Navy.....I put 7 and 8 points on these respectively, and looking at it now, I probably shouldn't have even put that many points on either of those games.....I don't know about you guys, but both of those were toughies for me to pick...the CS v. Navy matchup has probably my favorite sponsor of this year's entire bowl season....the San Diego County Credit Union. Nice. Nothing rolls off the tongue like the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.

Lucius, since you probably can't see these articles, Marcus Randle El and Booker Stanley have both been charged with a number of violent crimes. Both had been charged, or were being charged, with violent crimes stemming from incidents earlier this year. Stanley is in deeeep doo doo, with felony charges of false imprisonment, reckless endangermen, and battery-intimidation of a victim, among others.

Remember at the beginning of the season when Brandon Williams said that Stocco would pass for 3,000 yards and everyone laughed? Here are his stats on the year:

Att: 328
CMP: 197
YDS: 2920
CMP%: 60.1
YPA: 8.90
LNG: 65
TD: 21
INT: 9
SACK: 37
RAT: 150.48

Not a stellar rating, but he almost did keep good on William's promise. Curious to see what happens next year - all of it depending on Calhoun's decision, of course.

Just heard the news: Vince Young declares for the NFL Draft in 6 minutes. More power to him. I hope he goes to Tennessee for reasons mentioned in previous posts.

As far as Texas, I suspect we aren't gonna repeat as National Champs next year, but with so much returning talent, we should still be strong BCS contenders. Saw a little bit of Longhorn QB recruit Jevan Snead in the Army All-American game yesterday and he looked terrific. Hate to see anyone, much less a freshman, have to come in and follow Vince's act though, but I'm hopeful this guy can come in and be a good game manager and we can rely on another strong O-line and go back to a power running game next year, with all the experienced backs that are already in place.

Ernie Sims of FSU, LB, declared for the draft today, adding another great linebacker to the draft. IMO, this may be the deepest draft for front 7 players in recent years. Starting with Mario Williams, the terrific DE out of Maryland, there's not a hell of a lot of drop off for the next 15 players.

And then, the day after he tosses away his athletic future, he pulls a gun on some kinds in a McDonalds and will probably end up going upstate for a few years. What a horse's ass.

Yeah, MV is an asshole, but I bet he still beats the rap and gets drafted. In fact, NFL folks say he'll be drafted on the second day. Good luck to him. He could be the first QB to pull a gun in the huddle and threaten his receivers.

Oh, come on...Zab Judah doesn't train, doesn't even bring in sparring partners for a fight that could earn him millions, loses to a journeyman and then blames his promoter for distracting him with interviews and that doesn't deserve a dig?

Vick goes from BMOC, all-ACC QB and certain legacy NFL star to such a freaking head case that he has nine traffic busts, gets booted from a squad full of cons-to-be, then pulls a piece in a McDonald's parking lot and THAT doesn't deserve a dig?

Try observing the world of Sports Knuckleheads without ever making fun of African Americans. It can't be done. The pickings are too rich.

OK, just to show you how fair minded I am, I'll go after a revered caucasian, Italian-American icon. What the hell does Joe Paterno think he's doing trying to excuse an FSU player's alleged sexual assault? Why did he even have to open his mouth and stick his foot in it? A very very Dumb Cluck move. But he didn't find that NOW spokesperson who called for his resignation and threaten to bust a cap in her, so in the Dumb Cluck sweepstakes, he comes in behind Mr. Vick.

Now that I know we are keeping score, I'll try to toss in a Vitaly-Klitschko-nude-magazine-spread or John-Daly-off-the-wagon jibe every now and then to keep my Honkey Jibe Ratio (HJR) at an acceptable level...:-)

Looks like Calhoun is going pro. This will make things interesting in the Wisconsin backfield. We've got some great potential talent there, but they're all young and inexperienced. Maybe next year will turn out how this year was supposed to - somewhere in the lower middle of the Big Ten pack? Luckily our lines have had time to improve, but our skill position players are now all graduating (White, Williams)going pro (Calhoun) or merely adequate (Stocco). I'll be very curious to see who's playing in the Spring game this year . . .

Hopefully Bielema won't be as hesitant as Alvarez was to put potentially great players in as true freshmen.

The JoePa bit was comical because, like Ricky Gervais in "Extras," he tried to dig his way out of his lunacy by explaining it, and just made it worse.

And, true, in the fortune-blowing-fighter category, it is just as easy to make fun of Vinny Paz as it is to pick on Mike Tyson. I think there's a lesson in that for all of us.

Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message

Forrest
Posted on Tuesday, January 10, 2006 - 03:37 pm:   

See my post above . . .

Calhoun says that his decision was based on a few things, among them, his weight is up, yet he's fast as ever; he had a fantastic game against Auburn; he's wanted to play NFL ball since forever and with Joe Thomas' injury, he was worried about the same happening to him (this was, it sounds like, the driving factor in his decision).

Dunno what it says about Bielema. There have been rumors about a player or two jumping ship, but the interviews I've read with the kids who were supposedly leaving seem to indicate that the rumors were just sports-writers taking some offhand comment and stretching it a mile. The one exception is Bryan Savage, our third string QB, who is moving on, but no one quite knows where. Fact is, he was being pressed hard by our scout team QB, Sherer, and he saw the writing on the wall. I saw Savage play this last spring. We won't miss him. :-)

We're still pretty loaded at tb. Young, but loaded.

For Calhoun, from everything I've read, it really seems a case that he feels he's proved himself in college and doesn't want to risk his future. (Calhoun talked about how satisfied he was with the idea of ending his collegiate career with a game where he laid a major amount of whoopass on a highly ranked opponent.)

Keep in mind, it's not just Joe Thomas, who went from sure-fire first-rounder to rehabbing returning senior in one play, but Calhoun was around when Evans decided to come back for his senior year, blew out his knee in Spring Game and was fighting to get back into top shape throughout the season.

Also, Calhoun is only the second back in NCAA history to have over 1500+ yards rushing and 500+ yards receiving in one year (i.e., a multi-purpose back that doesn't have to come off the field in the pro game).
He played an entire season without injury or mishap, despite getting an NCAA record number of touches between all his carries and receptions. Throw in the fact he watched a similarly sized Anthony Davis struggle through nagging injuries throughout his second and third seasons as the featured back, and watched AD's draft stock tumble, and I certainly can't say I fault the kid for going while the going's good. In fact, I think he's making the right decision. RBs have a very limited shelf-life, and the kid will get a chance to prove himself at the next level, regardless of draft position. (Odds are he wouldn't climb into the top ten of the draft if he came back, given that the Badgers are graduating all three of their WR, so the passing game will suffer next year, which will significantly clog the running lanes for next year's team.)

And some folks say he could go in the first round. I think he's second-round talent, and I wouldn't even be shocked if he falls to the third round, but I also wouldn't be surprised if a team picked him late in the first. And I don't know if he really has a chance to significantly improve his stock by coming back. So all I can say is "Best of luck, Brian. Looking forward to seeing you play on Sundays."

And I really don't think it has to do with the coaching changeover whatsoever. Ditto for Savage. His career at UW was DOA regardless of who's coach. But we'll see if there will be any defections, and we'll see when it comes to recruiting. At least the Auburn game will be useful for the latter, even if it was the final nail in the coffin of Calhoun's college career.

And minx, amazing how much sense you make when you're not all Farve-locked. :-)

I can't see C as a first-rounder. Esp now that Lendale White's come out. But yeah, it's likely a good decision.

I tried to correct my MInx error, but there it stands for all to see.

Hey, we all know deep inside, I'm one luscious minx. (That's a cross between a mink and lynx, for those of you among the uninitiated.)

I actually am wondering if White might have the longer, more productive career than Reggie Bush? I certainly think White will have a better rookie year. I see Bush having problems adjusting to the pro game, where he'll be on a shitty team, and instead of having the major talent differential on his side of the ball, it'll be on the other side. Throw in defenders who can match or at least seriously compete with his athleticism, and I think Reggie may be in for a bit of a rough transition. Can he handle that? I could see him having some very good individual days, but a very up-and-down rookie year.

Yeah, White's the safe bet, 235, 240. Fast, tough. But with Bush you've got the potential for greatness...like a bigger, faster, shiftier Marshall Faulk. The coach of Houston will have a lot to do with it. If he's Sean Peyton, the Dallas OC, I think Bush will have a pretty great season.

Can I go on record as saying that I have nothing whatsoever against Reggie Bush or Lendale White? :-)

Yet....

...And that's just 'cause one's named for the pres and the other's got the right-colored name...

Damn, you're right! I always wondered why Slappy White cracked me up! :-)

Amen, Lucius. I'm savoring these months as National Champions cuz the landscape is gonna change mightily come September. No more Vince at Texas, and either a redshirt freshman or a true freshman will be the starting QB. There's gonna be growing pains there even in the best case scenario. I'm looking forward to seeing what this kid Jevan Snead can do when he gets a shot. USC loses two Heisman winners, and no matter how deep they are, that's gonna leave a mark...neither team is going in the toilet, but both will be vulnerable....it's gonna be interesting next year to see which other teams rise up....Ohio State's looking tough for next year....Texas vs. Ohio State in fact in Austin in early September....you think Miami might be back in the fight by next year?
