Op said Vance helps RZ O with ability to catch jump balls. You disagreed, specifically citing his lack of this in the college ranks.
I then pointed out that our coaching staff has demonstrated an ability to get more out of their players above and beyond what they where capable of in college. Again never did I once say Vance would become some RZ monster. I merely pointed out that it is short sighted to rule RZ production out just because he didnt do it in college.
You then went on to make a straw man argument out of my Bruce reference and somehow managed to bring in MJ and Bigfoot into the conversation. Am I missing anything?
Nope not missing a thing. Guy is huge and can jump out of the house. Strange he had 2 touchdowns last year. Rice must of just had terrible coach's with no clue how to use him. Also for all our experiments that worked there was two that failed.
You say don't count out the coaches, I say I don't think any of us have an idea what the coachs will do or not do. I actually think their unpredictability is one of our real strength's. I also don't think they give us much idea of their actual plans. As game days approach they will absolutely refuse to answer questions about game plans etc. So I assume anything out there mouth about anything is bs.
But long story short I think saying we will be solving problems with rookies is always a bit of a stretch. Ala balmer and aj jenkins. Remember what people (including myself) were saying about them. Now its nice to dream but thats all any of us are doing at this point.
