Is Trindon Holliday playing football for LSU? Gracious sakes alive, if that's true they could put together a serious team like, not just a novelty FB team, but a serious NCAA title contender.
And BTW, my mistake, Brandon Breazell is not a DB, but in fact a WR. He had a great over-the-shoulder grab for a 50-yd TD last week vs. OSU. And despite his relatively "slow-ish" 10.9, the coaches and other teams say he has -- much like Jerry Rice -- great "football speed". Meaning he can get near his top speed with all the pads and bumping and cutting. Of course that won't count for much in the 4x1 with just some lane lines and an unforgiving clock.
Off TOPIC TANGENT ALERT: speaking of Jerry Rice, he had like a 4.7 40yd time out college (way too slow for most scouts' liking) but the Genius Bill Walsh saw something, saw his "football speed" and drafted him early.. the rest is history. Walsh once commented: "when the ball is in the air, it doesn't matter if the DB is a 4.2 guy, Rice will beat him to it..."
I've always remembered that, but never fully understood it. I wonder if there are any theories as to why that is, or at least percieved to be that way.
