Brian mentioned this on the front page; anyone else just as surprised by this? My guess is we're still not likely to get him, but it would be a hell of a pickup.
Since we're on the topic, I'm all for keeping the dude at running back. Not right for this offense? Maybe, but just imagine running a triple option with Barr in the Schmidt role -- AN OFFENSE THAT WILL GIVE DEFENSES NIGHTMARES FOR YEARS TO COME MUAHAHAHA.
Seriously though, the thought of a guy his size running the ball just brings a smile to my face.
