Anyone know anything?

 

Maybe it's the limecat. Can we work him into this equation somehow? Perhaps some victory Coronas with a lime courtesy of Limecat? Victories...ahhh...remember those?

Can you frickin imagine this set:

 

Duval Kumara 6'5" ~ 225 (Powerful, great hands)

Mike Floyd 6'3"~ 200 (True gamebreaker)

Golden Tate/John Goodman/Parris (Any one of these guys could dominate)

Jonathon Baldwin 6'6" ~ 235 (A true R. Moss-like mis-match)

Kyle Rudolph 6'6" ~ 229 (Scary good)

 

Who can match up with that? I don't think anyone can. If Jimmy or Dayne have ANY time to throw, it's over. We are going to crush people. As Charlie says..."Enjoy it now!"

yea apparently his SAT score was a 1130. That's not even borderline for a kid who was rumored to be waiting to be cleared with over a 3.0 GPA in high school.

 

Though, Golden Tate had to go through the same thing and then qualified on the ACT with flying colors as well.

Guest IrishGlory
has he ever been to ND before?

 

I'm pretty sure he took an unofficial but not sure about that.

 

 

Baldwin previously visited ND on his own dime. I like him a lot as a player. I do not think he is the burner that some have suggested. I think he is more of a big target in the Mo Stovall mold. I have seen some folks post that he has 4.4 speed. I don't think that is the case, I think he is closer to a 4.6 guy, but there is nothing wrong with that at his size. Baldwin is a productive football player.

The problem I have with the football playing basketball team we are putting on the field is two-fold. 1) These guys don't get separation which wouldn't be a problem because they are naturally open, even when covered due to their height, but 2) our QBs don't do what you are supposed to do with tall receivers which is throw it up! What is the point of having tall ass receivers if you are waiting for them to get open like a smaller quicker receiver? You recruit big bastards so you can run fades and throw it up to them! This is where sharpley and clausen have pissed me off a little. Tate plays like a 6'6 reciever. It appears that these QBs have gotten too locked up in Charlie's X's & O's instead of using common sense. Just my opinion, though, but it has worked for Memphis to throw it up to their big 6'6 and 6'8 receivers. Hell, Moss is not always open, but through his athleticism and size can make a play against a corner who is all over him. Anyway, that's my 2 cents. If we aren't going to throw it up, we need a bunch of little fast guys who can get wide open.

I have to agree with you a bit here, I am worried that we don't have a "Golden Tate" style guy, but I think that Floyd is good enough to do it all. Weis was successful in NE when he had shorter, quick guys that ran routes well. On the other hand, his best receivers have been big guys, so I believe he is sticking to his guns here and recruiting more of those types of guys. I'd like to find a Percy Harvin type for the 09 class.

 

As for the QB's, I dont know that its fair to lump Clausen into the same category as Sharpley in that he locks into the X's and O's of the system. He is in his first year, and he needs to learn the system and what he has done shows maturity and intelligence. Granted, we are all waiting for him to start making the plays we expect of his hype, but it will come with time. In the future, we need to see Clausen break a bit away from his conservatism and not be afraid to try and make plays....he is a freshman and we would all be alright with a few aggressive mistakes. It would open up the field a bit if we did take some deep shots.
