Why a guy like Nelson can step in and play poised and well as a true freshman, but a guy like Bellomy didn't, at least in his last outing.  Now I know Nelson didn't get thrown into a road game against Nebraska when he wasn't expecting to play so the dynamics are a little different.  But, he seems poised, is making good decisions, and is moving his team offensively.  And, both are pretty similarly ranked recruited with Bellomy probably being a little higher rated.  It just makes you wonder...why can't we do that?

Somebody needs to make a Devin Gardner appreciation thread. This guy is a coach's dream. He's done everything the program has asked of him and more.

He came in as the Rivals number one overall ranked QB, and took a back up role behind Denard. He stayed on through the coaching change and bought into his role as a sort of hybrid QB/RB in our "Joker" packages last year. Then, this year, he moved to receiver because we really needed an outside threat, and has performed as well as anyone could possibly expect at that position. Now, when called upon to move back to QB mid-season, he's done so, and we haven't heard anything out of him other than he's a fantastic teammate and a really positive, upbeat kid.

Devin Gardner, you sir, are one of a kind.
