    He's just a little guy but all heart. Was the valedictorian of his class.

    Can't wait to see what special plays the coach has in mind for this mighty mite.

    Which hole do you designate if he is supposed to run between a blockers legs?

    Have him run a fly pattern, not straight down the field but run in crazy circles and the defenders can't keep their eyes on him.

    How can he block anyone without getting a flag for hitting them in the legs if they are already engaged with someone else?

    QB gets a bad back bending over to hand the ball off to him.

    I thought Jeremy Bloom was in danger of drowning last night as well! From the little bit of the game that I saw, Jeremy did a nice job in his sideline role.

    Nobody here in Houston is going to complain about any rain that we get. It's been so dry this summer that people around here were even rooting for Tropical Storms (those people don't live as close to the water as I do).

    Not sure. I didn't see any cornerbacks or safeties in the tv picture on any of those TD passes....plenty of bad defense to go around last night. Rice flubbed a kickoff return and started at their 1 yard line. 2 plays later, their running back goes 97 yards up the gut, untouched, for a TD.

    Really cool. Being tall I can only imagine how intimidating that could be. I'll root for him and see if he gets to play.

    I think Houston would get smashed by a lot of AQ conference teams but with our secondary situation they might put up 100 on us, in the first half.

    You put him at DT for goal line defense. Let him sneak in between the g's legs and trip up the running back.

    Yeah. Definitely. As I am tall also, I too can only imagine how intimidating it would be to be short.

    Misleading thread title. Thought 'Tini transferred.
