Is this the kid who came on the recruiting scene late because he was injured his first few years? If it is, I remember Birm saying he would have been a big time recruit, had he stayed healthy.

I never said that's the decision I'd make. I just see both sides. If you were handed $25 million to skip your last day of work vs staying and maybe only getting $5 million if something out of your control happens on a day that really doesn't have much significance, you'd be pausing to think about it. That's ridiculous to say they're only thinking of their selves. You don't know their thoughts or experiences. That money can set them and their family up. Some of these guys come from nothing and the NFL is no guarantee for the long term.

There are 2 different routes you can go with your opening drive. You can come out swinging with some aggressive play calling but risk running those plays into an unknown defense, or you can script more conservative plays that allow you to get a feel for how the defense is playing. Our strategy appears to be the latter. I know we all want to come out guns-a-blazing, but if those plays fail, you not only end up with nothing, but you don't get good reads on the defense. With the adjustments the staff usually makes, leading to greater second half success, I'm going to refrain from criticizing.

Heisman Trophies are nice, but '06 made me realize it rings hollow if you don't bring home the ship with it.

I also love how many of them think Kelley is getting fired and UFM jumps ship to South Bend. Hilarious.

I feel like special teams would give the edge to McCall. We're much more likely to use him there, leaving him unable to redshirt. Williams may be better but it'd be waistful to burn 2 redshirts.
