    I assume you dont even realize you do this, but when you get in a fight with people over something like Gillam's health, when you are pretty over bearing and obnoxious about it, and then matter closes itself - it is really annoying to most of us when you make posts like this. It would be the equivalent of me replying to this by saying:

    "Tupou un-suspended yet?"

    Now for the rest of us here are some pretty encouraging notes on Both Gilliam and Awini:

    Awini picking up the defense and being effective would be a huge boost to the LB corp. He has the athleticism to be good back there.

    I think he can really help stiffen the defense this year and get a lot of penetration.

    The Awini story is pretty damned interesting. At least I think it is.

    Anyone see the video that G. Watanabe posted? Damn, that kid is a truck!

    Was that Lynott he blew up?

    No kidding. He hit his spot with aggression and at full speed.

    Edit:I would post the video from Grant's twitter but suck at things like that.

    That'd be great news considering last year's defense was fairly soft, and seemingly limped around while they were getting pounded by the opposition.

    How'd Spruce do? The puns are much better with him than with Awini.

    GW hit Lynott hard. Lynott looked a little dazed. Hope no injury or anything there.

    Really excited to see some of the kids that were injured and redshirting playing this year. More size and speed is GOOD.

    Great to hear. We need some big time production out of our LB's this year.

    Excited to see those players and also what Leavitt has done. Awini could be great. awesome that gillam is impressing coach leavitt. Good sign. I would guess that Leavitt likes seeing a like of fire and energy from guys.

    This year, it's the defense that I really want to see on the field. It will give us an early idea of how well we can do. Offense under Lindgren is in good hands. no worries there. Powell should be starter. I like Leavitt's energy and he seems like a great motivator.

    Leavitt and Lindgren could be the right combination of coordinators to finally get us to that next level?

    If Awini goes off, you'll get full credit for having your finger on the pulse and eyes on the prize.

    Have coaches considered putting Awini in the slot? Seems like a natural fit there. Hell, as long as he doesn't get too big, you could try working him in to tight end.
