    Great article. Talks about his transfer situation that happened after the 2010 season and where his head is at now compared to then. Well worth a read.

    I'm glad he stuck around. Hopefully we can find a legit #2 to take the pressure/Defense off of him

    Realistically, he is the only offensive skill player that opposing teams have to account for, at least at the moment. We need him to have a big season because if he has similar numbers to his first two seasons, we are in big trouble.

    I am anxious to see who else steps up at WR.

    Geez, they didn't really hold back in that article. I hope it comes to fruition next season...

    Dude, that article sucked. not the actual subject-matter, just a very poorly written article. After reading the first three paragraphs, I had to restart because I figured I missed who this mysterious "Malcolm Blacken" was. Nope, I just had to wait another 13 paragraphs for the answer. Ok. For me, the article simply just did not flow. How the author made an in-depth look at our best returning offensive player a struggle for me to even want to finish, well, that takes talent!

    Other than that, it was quite an informative piece.

    If P-Rich has worked himself into a burner, I would watch out. We all saw what he is capable of in that Cal game. Combine to that some elite speed and he would be a a huge weapon. I think he got the light shined on him and then got so much attention by the D that he wasnt making plays and got discouraged. Not to mention the injury. I have always thought that kids with something to prove in football are the most dangerous players out there. P-Rich is out to prove something, to someone. If it keeps up, and we get a legit QB out of the spring/fall, I would watch out for #6 if I was the rest of the conference. He sounds like he truly will not be satisfied this season.

    P-Rich remains my favorite Buff. I can't wait to see what he does this year.

    Umm, he already has elite speed. That was what made him jump off of the charts against Cal. He kept burning their NFL caliber defensive backs before and after catching the ball.

    Granted, I know that the article is saying he is even faster now...

    edit: I know others are saying it but the video work coming out of the AD is awesome. The basket ball tourney work, coaches week, now spring practices. I am really impressed. I wish I could rep the video squad.

    Sweet grab by Dustin Ebner minus the girlish "woo". Ebner might catch around 20 balls this year and be a nice scrappy slot guy.

    Some do. Our WR group is definitely not the most imposing group.

    So you think that after all this time you need to be introduced to the coaches? Interesting point of view.

    I may know who Blacken is, but I bet about 1% of buff fans know who the s&c coach is. The dude has a point.

    We can agree to disagree. The guy's gotten a lot of press IMO, and especially Allbuffers should know who he is.

    Yeah. Most allbuffers will know who he is but the article is not written for exclusively allbuffers.

    If I remember the article corrrectly, Blacken is identified as the S&C coach deeper in. I suspect there was some cut and paste editing and that detail slipped by. You should always identify somebody's role in an article and I'm pretty sure JRK knew who Blacken was to begin with.

    If not, then who? They know their audience; offseason S&C article, during NCAA tourney week, even with it being about PRich that isn't one that is going to suck in a lot of drive-by readers. I am personally looking for a bit more challenge in reading - how about an article written only with player numbers - to force some roster memorization before the Spring Game.

    Good point. They could also just not write the article at all to force us to garner the information on our own.

    I was looking for Tim Conway at the end of The Aristocrats, but this is all that showed up. You should watch it at work with the volume turned up all the way. Also, call your boss over. Rep to anyone who can find what I was originally looking for.

    I can't find the Tim Conway clip, but you posted my favorite part of the movie. Sarah Silverman is awesome.
