I want to see him open the flood gates on Furman's offense. Hopefully he can get into a good flow and cause some ripples. I'll be streaming it!

cause some ripples

Read this as "nipples"

Outside it's night time, but inside it's LeDay

The "flow" in his response would seem to make sense too, I don't fault you for the misinterpretation...

He has the ball in his hands like a RB. Does he want to play RB? Because we'll take him!

I'm hoping he gets some more playing time - he's seems like an intelligent player.

5 gifs, well played sir, you get a leg!

If he was gonna wear #5 I would have stuck with just one gif.

I approve of this.

Although disappointed he didn't mention spitting hot fire.

just for you:

I'll wait until the season plays out, but the fact that he and Tisdale get very little burn, yet we still give up chunk plays and have guys out of position. If our defense was playing lights out, I could see Rivers and Tisdale having a hard time finding playing time, but that's not the case.

Bud already stated that they didn't see the field as much as he would like due to the low amount of defensive snaps we had last week and then took the blame for not getting them in early.

Here is my problem with our Coaching staff...why not Redshirt Dax last year and let him get some burn this year while keeping Rivers and Tisdale in a rotation this year. Dax is not a Backer, he is a MIKE linebacker, you can clearly see holes in his cover game. Where as Rivers and Tisdale are much better in space. I know the coaches want to get these skilled players on the field but to fully develop, there is no shame in taking a redshirt year.

Last year, we were fine in coverage at the beginning of the year at the backer spot, as soon as Rivers got hurt Dax goes in as a starter and all of a sudden we start having coverage issues. I know we had a whole host of injuries on Defense but I just feel Dax is not quite ready. Would rather see Rivers at the Backer spot.

Feel bad to see a 4-star guy who seems to be tough as nails and intelligent go down the pecking order.

I think Bud should do what he's doing (or Wiles is doing) on the Dline with the backers - get them all some reps - unless Ashby is kicking so much butt he can't come out. But for the other guys the drop-off isn't that huge, so keep them fresh and rotating. It's got to help the team down the line.
