How about the Hills references/posts stop when the Keeler/Sam Houston State or Brock references/posts stop?

Won't be holding my breath on either. Am interested in it all.

I meant from a talent standpoint not an academic standpoint. I said he made a mistake and he pulled himself back up from it. Kid lost a whole year of football and had to be a security guard before having to start all over at a smaller school with less facilities. In that time he became a team captain, shattered Slipper Rock's single season rushing records, and now has a shot to make an NFL team. From a redemption standpoint, what more do you want?

It's not up to the coach it's up to the student to go to class and graduate. These aren't kids, they are men and I don't blame Brock for that. I blame him for not having acquired talent around a player like Hills which more likely than not contributed to some of his injuries. When you're the best player on the field, at running back, on a team that can't complete a forward pass, and the defense is keyed in on you...doesn't take a rocket scientist to see how that could be harmful....or is that too an asinine comment for you JD?

It's sure an asinine statement from where I sit. Injuries happen in football regardless of your situation . Hills was a good one but Brock had nothing to do with his injury or academic ineligibility.

I've received several PM's about Hills and my bad for forgetting the circumstances of his departure. I do remember KC telling me he hated the responsibility of making sure his players went to class. Brock & Rocco took it as part of the job description.

Good analysis of Adderly after initially talking about first pick Tillery.

His development was held up by our former staff not realizing his REAL potential at wr(not qb) He is another UD warrior who gave all for us, and my fingers are crossed he latches on with the Bears or another team.

I saw that Adderly did not play last night. Pulled hammy. The same problem I think that struck him during the Combine.

He has not.

Would like to see him come back to UD and coach.
