    re: Rivals Grades

    First, the way they lumped Running Back and Receivers together is kinda silly. Second, no way do our receivers get above a B. SOOO many dropped passes – and quite a few leading to turnovers. They might get a B based on potential, but these are grades for this year, and based on our past and future standards, they shouldn’t grade out that high.

    Thoughts?

      I agree with that. Also, I don’t think special teams deserves an A. Sharp is a stud, and Gilbert had flashes a brilliance on some kick returns. However, our punt returning was shaky, and our kick and punt coverage is really not very good. What was the stat–3 kick or punts returned for touchdowns? Also, we gave huge field position all year.

      I think a B is fair for our receivers. Without a standout WR, it’s tough to give them an A, but at the same time I can’t give them a C because they put up the numbers they did without a standout WR. B is fair. Our running game deserves as A. Randle was fantastic with over 1300 yards. I thought Jeremy Smith would get more carries. I’m surprised he only had double digit carries in one game this year (ULL).

      I’m curious pistolsguy, if you agree with giving our defensive front 7 a B and our defensive backs a D+, how does that compute to having a good defense? A “C” average is not “good”.

    I’ve watched that free throw attempt about 25 times now. It’s just amazing that a D1 basketball player could ever do that. Also, props to him for holding the follow through…
