    Helluva sophomore season for Nelson Spruce. My favorite player on the team.

    he had a great season. I am hoping we can find a deep threat so he can do work.

    7 career TDs gives him a shot of passing Scotty's career record of 22

    1,200 career yards puts him close to the pace for passing Westbrook's career record of 2,548

    99 career catches puts him close to the pace for passing Scotty's career record of 215

    I'm not saying that Spruce is going to go down as the greatest WR to ever wear the black & gold. Offenses change and stats aren't apples to apples. But at the end of his career, there's a real possibility that he'll own the 3 major career records for a CU receiver.

    Duff, I'm sure your sentiments are shared by Sefo as well.

    Having a receiver who has a knack for getting open and catching the tough passes makes life way easier for a young QB.

    Geez, I didn't realize his numbers were that good this year. That is a very solid season.

    So who is better, Scotty or Spruce? Am I wrong to think that Scotty was actually a better deep threat? IIRC he caught a couple long bombs on post routes from Cody

    Partly because nobody covered deep since they didn't believe that Cody could or would throw it that far.:lol:


    Actually Scotty did probably have a little better top end speed than Spruce but my biased view is that Spruce is going to end up being a much better reciever than Scotty was all around.

    I think Spruce is a bit bigger and tougher than Scotty, but less of a deep threat.
