    My thought as well.

    That may be a little too heavy on the retrospection. I agreed that once we were a long shot at 6-6, we probably should have started the grooming of Davis. But we probably did make it to the bowl on Jennings. And it is too important that we made it to the bowl... for our future recruiting... to discount that achievement. Saying Davis would have also got the 6 wins... not sure about that.

    We weren't going to beat USM with any one of our current QBs. We can't place not putting Davis in this year as an excuse for next year. If Davis is good enough... he's good enough. This offense doesn't require a lot of mental gifts to run as a QB. You either have it, or you do not have it.

    Boomer likes to think way outside of the box just opened. In fact, I'm pretty sure while he's opening a gift box under the Christmas tree, he'll immediately start testing the secondary sexual characteristics of the box on the other side of the tree. It's just a Boomer thing. But he's our Boomer!

    Yes. Levi can throw well. And he's a really good heads up runner. A lot of his passing yardage is due to some really good WRs YAC. But he does throw well. He has a quick release and he makes decisions quickly. I like him for UL.

    I saw him play a few times this year. Levi is a left handed Ray. He does lots of stuff on a high school field that he won't be able to do in college.

    Both guards need to get more lean over the offseason and work on quickness.

    If one could read between the lines of today's interview on Sportschat....the staff will be looking for another transfer to come in at the QB spot for the 17 season.

    ---The one that has been proven to be correct on multiple topics on this board---and yes even the maturation process of the athlete that was profiled!!! Now as we come to the end of another year, maybe we can get the fight song melody sound corrected!!! lol

    Ahh Boomer... our resident pediatrician and jazz pianist.

    Stupid question about O-linemen...what size should they be? Sounds like the Tackles, especially mom-blindside should be 310 lbs range. Guards and centers should be 285 - 290 lbs becuase they tend to Pull or run block more. I would also ause that you want a blindside Tackle to be more quick and agile than heavy since he needs to adjust on the block during pass rush...Boomer? Basin Bear? You got some insight? I want compare the optimum size with what we have and are recruiting.. any o-linemen can be considered highly recruited if he obliterates d-linemen in the HIGH SCHOOL game that may be undersized but what's he going to do in the College game against a guy that's 270 - 285 lbs and can get in the back field on the first move?

    I don't think there is any right answer or optimum weight, height/weight ratio and different people carry weight differently. Hip movement and footwork are more important IMO. Our OT's aren't overweight they just aren't real agile. I think it was Oregon that would put their lineman in yoga classes in the offseason and they had 6'6 300 plus guys doing back bends

    Tom Brahany was a center for Oklahoma and an All-American at 6'2" 245 lbs and parlayed that into a 9 yr career with the St. Cardinals. Jay Hilgenberg of the Bears was 6'3" 250 lbs and a 7-time Pro Bowler. His brother Joel Hilgenberg, who played for the Saints in the 80's, played center and both guard positions. Same thing with Jesse Sapolu of the 49ers at 278 lbs. so I see a pattern on size.
