    Didnt all reports from spring practice say Dillion was thin, unsure, and didn't make good reads or throws?

    Yeah, obviously thin, but remember the kid's throwing arm(shoulder) was re-built and all that muscle memory and the brain that works it, needs to-learn the basics and gain confidence. I can empathize with the kid: I suffered a broken ankle requiring a re-build (complete with pins and screws) few years ago, immobilizing me for about 2 weeks and putting me in a walking cast for 6 weeks. After the cast was removed, first couple of weeks doing something as basic as walking without that cast, were doozies. And imagine the asymmetry that develops in your musculature when one side of you gets injured. You spend as much time recovering your symmetry, as you do working the repaired muscles and tendons---or should.

    Foreman comes from the Stanford S&C background that places a huge premium upon injury prevention and fast recovery from injury and much of that phiosophy revolves around working on muscular symmetry of the body, working the whole body, not just the injured part. Foreman's SJSU teams followed the Stanford pattern of "fewer injuries--quicker return", so he must be doing something right. That's a huge difference with what most S&C staff's work on and why it takes time adjusting to the new philosophy. Foreman wants these kids to work on their weaknesses, not just build their strengths and thereby provide symmetry.

    I think everyone needs to lay off of Dillon. Kid had his shoulder rebuilt and will need time to get everything back.

    CU's return to its winning ways will have meant CU has found a good QB for the first time in what seems to be ages.

    I wouldn't read anything into his ommission in this article. The new guys were mentioned only as evidence regarding how easy it is to learn the offense.

    Dillon was here all spring....

    I have posted my thoughts on Dillon from the spring elsewhere. I don't see him being ready as our backup, and needs to really work on his delivery. Not saying he's written off but likely needs a bit of tear down / build up for longer term success. That's a process.

    I'd expect a newcomer to not have to do that and probably assume the 2 spot for the short term.

    I agree. Brooks normally is pretty positive about all the players, so I was surprised he left Dillon out.

    Dillon was eliminated from the competition to be the starter during the spring. I don't think he was relevant to this article.

    Sly? gee, another guy who thinks he's clever and insightful, but isn't capable of saying what he/she means. The joy of the Internet: the runt of the litter gets to WOOF and GROWL

    Apparently you aren't capable of explaining yourself and that's likely because you don't know what you're talking about. That's all for me litltle guy

    Your reaction is further proving my point. You upset that your main man's site is going (well it's already down) the ****ter?

    Alright enough feeding the troll.

    The omission of Dillon is a little strange. The article mentions every other QB. Anyway, I'm anxious to see what Wood can do.

    I am too. Even if he looks good (which I think he might), I'm thinking with his inexperience it may take a few games before he has much confidence. "Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face."

    These First Name Last Name thread titles are hogwash.

    I wasn't being hard on Dillon, I only met that we all knew he was not a contender to be the starter this year. Sefo and the JC QB are doubtful to brrak into the starter role unless Wood takes steps back instead of continuing to progress, as he should. I think having an offense that lets Wood not have to think like a NFL elite QB, and let him relax and let his natural athletic abilities take over is a very very good thing for this team. We just need to be able to execute the system at a high percentage, not run a mensa offense thst is awesome in theory, but only one play in ten works right.

    I think long term Dillon is still a solid prospect. Short term we are seeing both the impact of his surgery and the reason he wasn't more heavily recruited out of HS despite his talent.

    Coming in we knew that Shane had been very successful in HS and could throw the ball. We also knew that he was painfully skinny and needed some development in terms of playing QB at the BCS level. In our desire to have a quality QB a lot of us (myself included) convinced ourselves that these issues could be overcome much more quickly than has proved out. The surgery has delayed it even more.

    With all this Shane still has the raw talent to be a very good college QB, he is just going to have to develop into it. A legitmate question is by the time he is ready will there be someone else who has a firmer grip on the job like Sefo or Cade.

    There are medical methods to gain weight and speed recovery. Hopefully his physicians and the strength team are working with him.

    Yeah, it's called "steroids" and is, in fact, frowned upon by the NCAA.

    Since the article is written from Wood's perspective, maybe there is a story behind Dillon not being mentioned. I think an independent follow up article should be written. A good name for the article could be "Is Wood hard on Dillon?"
