from MMs article (hopefully this is legal if not my apologies)
On whether he feels Crabtree can adjust to his scheme:
"I've watched very little tape of what he did in college. He played in a four-wide or five-wide package and was an outside receiver. I've seen the highlight film, but I didn't study him as a receiver, or haven't studied him as a receiver in the scheme that he played in college. From what I've seen early on, I think he'll adjust to the scheme, adjust pretty easily to any scheme. He basically played on one side in college, didn't flip, stayed on the one side and the routes were basically - in their system, he ran a hitch, and if he was pressed, he ran a go. So, it's a little bit more learning that he has to do than time will allow us to teach him, but we've got to make do as we can."
On whether Crabtree essentially ran two routes in college:
"As far as I can tell, but that's just a gloss over because I did not look at him and study him going back because I didn't have the receivers to look at. From what I saw of him on the highlight tape, that's what I saw."
On whether he ran those routes well:
"Yes, and they threw it pretty well, so he was pretty successful with it. As a matter of fact, the route that he caught to beat Texas was that route."
So yeah he was misquoted. i'll back off raye.
