Because everyone likes fan ideas for the coaches: Hill should play both ways

Our passing game is broken. There are a lot of reasons, but among them is our WRs have been pretty crappy.

Hill looks like the type of athlete that could add an edge to our offense. Just a small role, 5-10 plays. Basically I'd like to see McDoom's targets go to Hill. Might have been the difference vs MSU.

Are you trying to say that the 70+ hours a week each person on the coaching staff spends trying to figure out what will give the team the best chance of winning would put them in a better position than mgoposters to determine what is best? Come on man. Everyone knows that people on the internet, most of whom have never played a down of football outside of their backyard, know better than the coaches.

This is silly. Charles Woodson played offense as a sophomore. Jabrill Peppers wasn't a dominant player before he started getting offensive snaps as a redshirt freshman. If guys are good enough, they're good enough. I'm not saying Lavert Hill would change everything, but it's dumb to say "He should be dominant on defense before we think about playing him on offense."

It doesn't take a million reps to learn two formations and four plays.

It has gotten so bad with him that I see plays and wonder if he is shaving points. How does someone mess up the onside kick that badly? He can't catch the ball, get open, break tackles or return kickoffs.

Hill is probably 3rd in line among corners that would get a crack at offense, if the coaches were to do that at all. If you remember, Ambry dominated The Opening at receiver and did the same at King. David Long was a three way guy in HS as well. Both Long and Thomas are taller than Hill, and Long is definitely thicker.

At least pick the right corner.
