How did Polk look in practice?
This could be wrong, but I think I remember hearing he got injured in practice and needed minor surgery, anyone?
Hey, don't look at me! I haven't heard anything.
He needed surgery on his shoulder towards the end of the season. Just saw him today and he seemed to be doing just fine (no brace on his arm anymore) and hopped up some stairs like it was nothing. Hopefully jumping up the stairs is a sign that he will be able to jump over defenders
He was pretty impressive imo. A fast, shifty RB who will see plenty of PT with us next year.
The only issues I saw was problems catching the ball. I noticed him drop a good amount of screen passes. I'm sure he's taken care of it during the season. He asked for the RS.
I remember the interview. He didn't ask for a RS.
He went into Darian's office and asked for a RS year. At least that's what I remember. Darian was surprised.
daaah your my buddy... but i trust valdez 3 billion times more than you
Edit: I'm not intending to get over on anyone. I just remember being really surprised that Ray went to Hagan and asked for the RS.
Thats the way I remember it.
Ok. Fair enough. I trust valdez more than myself anyway. I just thought I rememberred stuff before that quote. But hell, what do I know? Seriously.
Mixed up with someone else? Maybe Lockridge?
who knows. i thought it was polk. nevermind.
Well regardless, he will be a good one.
Frankly, I believe most players benefit from red shirting. Once the depth on this team gets there, there will be fewer true freshmen playing.
Iwish the Limit for Ray Polk he had every reason to decommit but instead welcomed the challenge of Scott and Now Speedy this guys going to be a great player over his career and I see NFL in his future if he stays healthy. He welcomes challenge and should not be over used with nice rotation of guys that are in place.
_CanuckSpeak catch it it is a fever that you never look to cure!
wonder if that had something to do with his shoulder? Maybe thats why he asked for the RS, since he knew he wasn't right?
I'm not 100%, but I think he injured his shoulder after he got the RS.
so long as he doesnt drop those handoffs out of the shotgun we'll be ok.
I had a class with him and he didn't injure his elbow until about 2/3 of the way through the semester
Nice thread, go back to netbuffs.
I remember a lot of people talking about him switching positions. I haven't heard too much lately.
Agreed. Very few want to RS, but very few are ready to jump in and contribute as freshmen, too.
If the staff doesn't recruit an one this cycle, Polk will be the only frosh RB on the roster (barring any walkons, transfers, etc.). I kinda think he's gonna stay stay there, jmho.
He got injured near the end of the season. Hawkins (at the last luncheon I believe) called him out as one of the top players on the practice squad (he named about 10-12 guys we should look forward to) and stated he could really run the ball. I don't see him changing positions.
He's not the only one who can run the ball. He might have to.
I think our 3-headed monster at RB is going to be great.... if we make a commitment to the running game (and the OLine bounces back from injury)
Let's see how camp goes before saying anyone needs to switch position - who knows, maybe DScott is the odd-man out :lol:
yeah. you never know.
Wait, are you implying that this thread is irrational and negative?
.......and petty and nitpicking?
