For Davante Adams standards and the hopes you pin on this kid? Yeah, I'd say it was a down night for him. Nice of you to conveniently gloss over his fumble that cost us a touchdown.
Did any of you actually attend Fresno State like I did? Graduate like I did? Attend games at Bulldog Stadium religiously like I did? If so, you have my respect. If not, what in Hades are you doing here?
I'm the biggest, baddest, Bulldog homer on this board. But even I can admit that this year's Fresno State team is living dangerously on the edge. Three of those wins just as easily could have been losses. They are not blowing opponents out of the water with regularity like some of Jim Sweeney's championship clubs did.
I refuse to wear your rose-colored glasses. Yes, we're undefeated. Yes, it's nice. But I'm still plenty worried about what is to come...
I've been to more Fresno State games then you have since 1999 and that's fact. This thread isn't about the Fresno State Football team, this is about Davante Adams . Meanwhile you take every chance you get to throw him under the bus for whatever reason.
Considering I haven't lived anywhere CLOSE to Fresno since 1999, I'll buy that.
I'm not throwing Davante under the bus. Hardly! The only thing I've, that is upsetting to you for some reason, is point out the caliber of opposition he's faced. He's not going up against SEC or even PAC 12 defenses. The Mountain West might as well be renamed Marshmallow West when you compare it to the major conferences and BCS schools. Who else besides Boise State is any good? And even Boise isn't Boise like this year. Even you would have to admit that!
The kid is good -- no doubt. But is he THAT good? Is he Henry Ellard good? Do you even know who Henry Ellard is? Henry Ellard is the best wide receiver Fresno State has ever put into the pro ranks bar none. There never as anyone that good before Henry, and nobody even close to Henry since he last laced up his NFL cleats. Henry Ellard put Fresno State football on the MAP.
The point I'm trying to make here is this: Henry Ellard types just don't fall off the apple cart all the time. I will admit that I've been watching Davante ever since I spotted this thread, and watching him closely. There's no doubt: He has talent. We can both agree on that.
But I'm not going to put on your rose colored glasses and anoint him as the "Next Big Thang." He hasn't proven anything yet. He's a sophomore -- a very good sophomore -- but just that -- a sophomore.
Now, is there a chance that I'M WRONG
and YOU'RE RIGHT
, and you will end up serving me a big pile of steaming crow meat for breakfast, lunch and dinner? Sure! And given that I am the biggest, baddest, Bulldog homer on this board, I'll enjoy every last bite of it.
Oh, Crikey, I just found out you were born in 1991 and I'm arguing with a 12 year old. Good job billbird2111
