Very nice touch to have Murray and Brabbs as the team captains. I think we all know why that is. My money's on team Howard.
Blue minus 2.5
Was anyone else always a little curious about what Jermaine Gonzalez could've contributed if given an opportunity with a more wide-open offense?
Use to see Jermaine at QB in high school, guy was freakin amazing. We could have been the leaders, along with Texas, at a truly successful spread option offense. He was just about 8 years too early...
Brabbs is a captain. Very Classy.
Hopefully Vada Murray gets a great ovation. If I'm not mistaken, he's battling cancer.
on number of times Navarre keeps it on the read option. I say 7.5
Last time I saw Zia Combs was that horrific injury. Great that he's back out on the football field.
Fast enough to play WR in the Big Ten, big enough to play basketball in the Big Ten, and he had a great arm. He had 28 TD passes in his senior year of high school against 0 ints. He would have been perfect for RR's system...
