Yeah, Fox has a torn ACL.

Shane's mechanics are fine.  But his high school competition wasn't very good, he missed a big chunk of his senior year, and he stares down receivers.  I don't think he's ever thrown a ball to his right.  He's also a pocket passer, and the pass protection in these all-star games is questionable.  He'll get there eventually, but he's not there yet.

Magnus, you've been around these parts for quite some time.  Now what makes you think that rationality has any place here?  You seem to be forgetting that everyone else on this message board graduated high school and immediately started their post doctorate at Yale.  So why can't Shane do the same thing with football?

He's got to lower his pad level a little bit...I haven't seen him lower his shoulder and guys and just grabbing his legs and dragging him down.

With that said, it's down after 7-8 yards.

This is turning into one big advertisement for ND, NBC, Rivals, ND, the Robinson (ND), and ND occasionally interupted by a play. NBC does it again.

Bama has 3 RBs in this game...wtf?  How does Saban do it?  Plus Lacy is coming back and Yeldon is a true freshman.  I don't understand how he convinces that many guys at the same position of a high caliber to sign.
