Vigo is the first option at Corner and Safety. Nickel's kind of a specialized "rover" position in our defense. Maybe that explains it.
I'd think Vigo would be really good there, with his background as an OLB in high school. It is kind of surprising they haven't worked him in there. I'm with you, syko. Although I think Sandersfeld is a nice player, I'd love to have more speed on the field.
Yeah, more speed is a good thing. Travis has a good sense though. I read in the post that mahnke could rotate there. I really thought he'd be great there but 2009 exploited his lack of speed. I think we have a solid group across the board at db, they are young but the future looks good.
Vigo or put Hawkins at CB and Jalil plays NCB. Probably not ideal either. Maybe Jaffee can step in, he seems to have better quicks than Sandersfeld, and he's been a good special teamer for a good while. Tough to ignore Travis' playmaking after his acrobat pick on Saturday.
nickelback is a ****ty pop band that got even ****tier when they went country... they should be put into the fire pit instead of the koran
What about Terrel Smith? With all the stuff I have been reading about him I thought he would havebeen in serious contention for play the nickel position.
He is good enough to play. But they're trying to redshirt him.
Now that Olatoye has moved to safety, we've already got 3 in that class (Orms, Ussery).
Honestly, I think that Ussery needs to move back to WR. But either way it would still be best if Smith could redshirt.
Here's how our scholarship guys break down this year:
Juniors: Anthony Perkins, Travis Sandersfeld
Sophomores: Vince Ewing, Ray Polk
Freshmen: Deji Olatoye, Parker Orms, Terdema Ussery
Redshirting (FR): Terrel Smith
Seniors: Jalil Brown, Jimmy Smith
Juniors: Jonathan Hawkins
Sophomores: Makiri Pugh
Freshmen: Jered Bell, Paul Vigo
Redshirting (FR): Josh Moten
plus terrel got what sounded like a nasty concussion right before the CSU game...
However, if Hawkins and Sandersfield don't get it done against Cal, I wouldn't be surprised to see him come on either in the 2d half or against UH.
Terrel won't be traveling or playing real soon.
Yes, ussery should move back to wr. Will darden ever play?
Darden had some snaps at WR against CSU
It's also worth noting Darden is a redshirt freshman at a position dominated by upperclassmen. The fact he will not be counted on heavily until next year at the earliest is a good thing.
When should expect to see him on the field? Is it bad enough to warrant a r/s this year?
