"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Despite the fact that it was a relatively small sample of QB play this season, Gardner looked pretty damn good at times, including an impressive performance against the mighty South Carolina defense. What do you think his ceiling is? Let's say the levels are:
-All B1G QB
-All American QB
-Top 15 pick
-Top 5 pick
-Number 1 overall pick
Obviously, a wide range of possibilities, but this is assuming again, an optimistic ceiling, not a prediction of what he'll necessarily turn out to be. Personally, I think his ceiling is somewhere around All-American/Heisman Finalist, a lot will also depend on his redshirt and the success of team the next couple years.
In case you need a reminder:
I'm felt it was worth a post to comment on the great character that our Early Enrollee's all seem to have. Being privy to their interviews through rivals, I have to say that I am very, very impressed with the way they carry themselves. It is nice to see spotlight (teenage) football players actually be humble for once. Just another reason why UofM football is the best!
Curious on anyone else's reactions to this topic or any other reactions towards our EEs?
Just thought I'd post this article for those who haven't seen it yet:
DG sounds as solid as ever, not that any of us were concerned.
