You mean dumb like this?

Rosenberg: "So Rich......  Do you think you'll get fired  like right after the game or do you think Brandon will wait a few days and then fire you?"

Or maybe Sharp asks it.  Either way I would love to see RR come off the podium and just punch them in the head.

... is you can get a medical redshirt for a hangnail, so I don't think it has to do with his health... after all he was showing off his great dance moves, which could be difficult with a bad back.  I think they may just want to go live on the qb (or close to live), and they can be more aggresive on Gallon.

Seriously though, from BlueSeoul's game notes, Miss.St. doesn't throw from the pocket very much at all so height is much less of an issue. Having someone the same size is probably well down the list of priorities for scouting this offense. You need someone who can execute all of the options and make plays with his feet. Gallon ran this O effectively in HS. If you can get guys to Gallon, then you can get guys to Relf.

Apparently you guys have no idea how practice works.   The reason Denard is not simulating Relf is bacause he is busy working on our offense not because he can't pitch the ball well..

 

The scout team simulates MSU's plays against the 1st and 2nd team defense.  The scout team is usually made up of walk ons and redshirt players or players that won't likely play.  Gallon will be playing but because of the unique skill set they thought it valuable enough to move him to the scout team for part of practice.

Jeremy Gallon: 5-8, 180

Chris Relf: 6-4, 240

Something's not adding up.... we just must not have anybody bigger who can run an offense like MSU's.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the reason why they're using Gallon is because I heard that he is actually adept at running the option. DG would be the better choice but can't for obvious reasons. On another note, 6'4 240?! Yikes. Does he have a stiff arm a la TP? God I hope not.

Is that BWC in the photo?  That guy looks to have a nice big salad of hair and looks to weight about 380....it doesn't look like Will but it appears to be 73 on the jersey

If this is serious than you have got to do some catch up on your football news.  Campbell was moved to offense, because he wasn't getting it done on defense.  If he was good he would have played.  This had nothing to do with the scheme etc..

Are they wearing white or blue for the bowl game?

I heard it will be white which is why I brought my white jersey to jacksonville (spending x-mas in georgia)?

Luckily I can have someone bring my blue if I heard wrong.
