Scotty McKnight. He has been consistent through all the mess. He comes to play everyday and actually has talent.
1. His long red hair is awesome!
2. Seems like his in on most of the tackles, or very near. Has a sense of where the ball is.
Ryan Miller. I like when the big time Colorado kids stay home instead of going for the easy glory, kind of the opposite of the Lebron mentality.
don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, so I ordered these instead:
Please take one.
Marquez Herrod. I think he has a lot of integrity and character.
Nate Solder. Went to a small high school in a mountain town, not heavily recruited, is a good kid and is a legit NFL prospect.
Keenan Stevens. Invited walk-on. Played 10 snaps a couple years ago, no one expects him to contribute, and then Iltis goes down vs. CSU and he takes over. Graded out 2nd on the team over the season and yet most people are still dogging him and can't believe he starts, despite the fact, that less than 1% of us know a good offensive linemen from a bad one as we all watch the ball (me included). He's a senior and a leader and has been awarded as a hard worker by his mates. I know that's all crap tied to Hawkins, and thus it drives everyone nuts, but the kids deserves some major Kudos. Love this guy.
Jimmy Smith. Why? Because he's good.
:yeahthat: But its tough to pick just one since there's a lot to like.
that and one of the only emotional leaders this team has.
i like Ray Polk, came to CU despite the Darrell Scott commit. I'm also pulling bigtime for Jon Major. Colorado kid who chose CU over some heavies. I'm also a B. Lockridge fan.
Ray Polk. If he had stayed at RB (which I said he should, thanks Dan - jerk) he'd be poised for a HUGE season this year. He has quietly become one of the more valued members of the defensive secondary, though. You never hear him complaining. He goes out there and does what is asked of him. To me, he's by far the gem of the 2007 class.
We are hearing that Toney Clemons is contributing to the team swagger, too.
Jalil Brown. He's turned himself into quite a player, and will make it tough for QBs to go to the opposite side of Jimmy.
Offense: Scotty McKnight
Defense: Jimmy Smith
Why?: Because they're good.
he asked for the move to safety.
i'm gonna go with...speedy.
Tie between Herrod and McKnight. Herrod because he made it through alot and played pretty damn well last year. McKnight because he is Mr. Consistent. We dont see alot of consistency around here lately, unless it's consistently ****ty we are talking about.
No, he didn't. He was moved there. The reports that he asked for the move are false. You can thank Bagdhad Dave for that little gem of misinformation. I heard this directly from one of the coaches.
McKnight because of all the reasons mentioned and he's funny. Heard him on some interviews at Big XII media days and he had all the radio guys in Austin cracking up.
well thats news to me. don't doubt it for a second. who knows though, while we are thin at rb, we would be extremely thin at db without him.
You took my exact 3, dawg. Witchcraft.
We would be hurting a LOT more at DB right now if that move was not made. Just sayin'.
My vote is for McKnight.
McKnight is sort of the anti-Westbrook, anti-Pritchard. I would prefer to have the athletic Westbrook. Remember the Pritchard reverse? Favorite players: any of the transfers from a good football school USC or Michigan, i.e. Toney Clemons. Recruiting re-treads. Toledo has better receivers? We *really* need a deep threat, I am sick of this offense. It ain't supposed to be intramurals, but McKnight is tough and a true Buff-a-lo, so go get 'em dude. Least favorite: the other slow ***** receivers we recruited not named - McKnight.
Speedy speedy speedy
Cody Hawkins -- despite not be a Division l player, and despite being raised on juice boxes, and despite being forced to focus on little things, he'll leave CU with a bunch of passing records. Tough kid, lots of class.
I'm not going to pick a favorite, but I'll repeat myself on this subject. Both Cody and Tyler have been placed in difficult situations. Both have handled themselves with class and kept the controversy private. Comments in the media have been measured, but never anti-CU or anti- each other. Two kids acting maturely in a tough spot they didn't create.
I agree, AJ, both Cody and Tyler have handled the situation about as well as it could have been handled. Tyler's exemplary behavior suggests to me that he respects the Hawks, Younger and Elder.
I have nothing but respect for Cody. Playing on a crap team, and having limited physical gifts, he did a pretty damn good job.
First time poster long time reader, There are a lot of good kids to like but i have to go with Justin Castor.....Great Kid and family always dreamed of being a Buff. He was Kicking 45 yard FG's for me when he was in 8th grade. I can't wait to see him do well for the Buffs.
Rep for the first post. I hope that Justin proves himself to be a Buffalo great.
