Great Kid, sat next to his parents during a game,Cullen just wants to be sucessful, and he thought he could accieve that at UM, had a meeting with the coaches and both felt that they werent meeting in the middle about the young mans future,but I will say this, I dont think he's the last to leave because of -------certain things, nuff said. P. S You will hear from Cullen again.
but now I am all pins and needles about "certain things." What things? Scary things? Tasty things? Easter things? Spandex things?
Please don't bring up things you don't want to talk about because it is maddening for those of us with no things.
"Mass exodus" is redundant. By definition, an exodus is massive in scale.
I love how the OP is so petty he had to imaginary neg you.
I kinda like the OP's self up-vote. No idea what the purpose of that it is.
Sometimes grammatical "errors" are used to make a point stand out more. To some it works; to some it doesn't. I like "mass exodus." YMMV.
little redundancies that we use all the time for that kind of emphasis - young whippersnapper, old crone/old coot, etc. They give a lot of color and life to the language.
Although one player leaving hardly qualifies as a mass exodus.
So Cullen Christian is entering the NBA Draft. Got it.
I see what you did there...
This will be the last time we hear of him. IMO
There were practice reports that suggested he was playing pretty well at times. To be honest, I have never seen anything out of Terrence Talbott to suggest that he's a long-term answer at cornerback. I did see flashes - albeit rare ones - from Cullen Christian.
Frankly, I think a lot of this comes down to one big point, which I've been criticizing since early in his recruitment:
He's just not a very good tackler. You can't play in this defense (or any defense, really) if you're not willing to come up and lay a lick on somebody at least once in a while.
That, coupled with the incoming depth we will see at the CB position I think makes this basically a wash. Still, it is never any fun to see a highly touted recruit leave your program. At least we get that extra schollie for the next class. I wish him the best.
Supposed quote from Cullen Christian's mom on his FB page says something like:
"I know if Barwis were still there, you wouldn't even have this back pain."
Seems like kind of a silly shot to take at the current S&C coach. Yep, I'm sure he developed back pain in the last 3 months simply because Barwis left. That dude was Miracle Max, right?
Wasn't his listed 40 time in high school almost 4.7? Even last year in the limited time he played, he looked a little slow. Not something you can coach up.
Odds are he'sgoing to wind up at Pitt. Close to home, and Coach Gibson is there.
