Cox may still be behind Vandy transfer.

Very true, but Cox should push him, and it's nice to know we have some depth there despite Vaughn's possible knee injury.

I guess we should also note that we can anticipate Hoy pushing to start at QB. If he is as good as we hope, it's nice to know we also have some actual depth at QB, our biggest question mark position this year with DW graduating.

Count me as squarely in the "wait and see" camp regarding LaRussa and Arnold. Right now I'd feel a lot better if they were back ups, not potential starters, but, we'll see. They are just not big enough.

Schekells will not play QB at ODU, however at his size he could make a descent tight end.

Saw a few nice plays, little more deception and creativity.

Other thoughts?

It seems that Vaughn tore his ACL again yesterday. Big loss. Ellison looked good on the highlights.

Wow seriously??? That sucks.

yeah. if that ends up being the diagnosis that is terrible for him. just couldn't catch a break.

Maybe you could have worded it a little differently?

Cox looked more than capable. Is the Vandy transfer even here yet? Don't recall seeing him play
I don't get to see to many other teams, especially P-5 teams, but our corners and linebackers still seem undersized to me. Is this accurate or are they about what we should expect at our level?

Ron Whitcomb rushed over to him and started comfort coaching him. I really understood the frustration I remember when I first started doing college math. Calculus kick my butt no matter how much I practiced, I never got it and barely passed.

He got a concussion
Wow! I didn't realize that. Let's hope it wasn't anything too serious.

Im guessing he is finishing up his studies at Vandy. Semester is almost over.

I dont believe our players are all that small, but our lunebackers are really ylung as well. It might be another year or 2 before they really bulk up.

RE: Spring Game take aways
Interesting reading everyone's comments. Couple things I took away:

1. Arnold struggled IMO. He didn't work through his progressions quickly enough and took too many sacks. He missed a couple throws to wide open receivers as well as several other miscues. I think Drayton has all the tools and just needs time. I don't think he's ready right now.

2. LaRussa looked confident and in rhythm. He made one really poor throw on the deep ball to Duhart. He under threw the pass and it should have been picked off. Jonathan made a fantastic play.

3. I really like Isaac Weaver. He was the left tackle on the Blue squad and he is going to be a stud. He really moves his feet well for being 6'7. Going head-to-head with Ximines is a tough assignment and he held his own. We needed someone to step up in place of Butler and I think he's going to help fill a crucial role on our line. Davison also played well. The White line was young and it showed. They struggled IMO.

4. I was watching the linebackers closely. Lots of young, talented guys there. Jordan Young stood out from the freshman. Marvin Branch played really well too. I think he's going to get a lot of playing time this year.

5. Our safeties and defensive backs are so much better than they were three years ago. We have depth and talent. Last year's team was solid against the pass. They will be better this year.

6. We have some really good freshmen receivers. Ellison, McCluney and Cortez Ervin are the future. Not sure how much playing time they will get this year but they showcased their potential. All three have speed and height.
