Hey everyone, I was thinking about this last night, and I haven't seen that it has been addressed directly.
Having Gorgeous Al in the press box clearly has some advantages as far as letting him see the field better and figuring out which plays will work and which won't. However, I wonder how much of a difference it would make for Denard to have Borges on the field with him during the game rather then just speaking with him over the phone.
We have seen on several occasions where Denard struggled in the first half and then went into halftime and had some face time with Al. This seems to calm him down and get his head straight. He then comes out dominant in the second half. I even heard Coach Hoke address this with the B1G Network guys after the game in his ingterview. He mentioned something to the fact that Al spoke with Denard and calmed him down and asked what he was "seeing" out there.
Just wanted to get everyones opinion. I am sure there are advantages to both. As long as Denard keeps tearing it up in the second half, I guess there is no real reason to fix what isnt broken.
