    if it comes true, or close enough with Solder and Miller competing for post-season honors.....maybe it could happen? he said, trying to be a glass half-full sort of fella. still have to stop people, can't give up 30 a game and expect too much in the W column.

    Clemons should have a big year. The key for us is whether he gets out of the gates hot. We absolutely must win against CSU and it's going to take our A game to beat Cal in Berkeley.

    Jimmy Smith was robbed, and did that say Solder was from Buena Vista, California?!?!

    player with a different attitude and work eithic is the difference. Toney is a hard worker from what I've seen, Darrell "me me" Scott not so much.

    Solder/Miller making 1st team is bigger news to me - they need to dominate like they are capable this year

    The key with this guy will be the same as with Simas when he got hot towards the end of last year... you have to find a way to get him the ball early and often in games. Big guys need to see the ball coming at them, throw him a few short passes early. Get him open in some space. We failed doing that early in 09'... back when there was a QB controversy. Low and behold, we switch to Hansen he gets comfortable, Simas started prospering.

    Move forward into 2010, we're entering the same QB controversy with guys rotating reps and i'm pretty sure it's going to cost CU, and hurt Clemons progress at the same time. It sucks.

    A WR is only as good as the QB throwing him the ball.

    A not-so-wise man once said "We'll see".

    Kind of goes both ways. Clemons may make our QBs look better (I hate having to write QBs since it should just be QB, Hansen).
