    That's the right attitude, IMO. At worst, he's a non-factor [which I have a difficult time envisioning, since he was a part time starter for some of his career]. Most likely he's a platoon guy who bolsters our depth at a key position where we lack top shelf talent.

    Nothing wrong with that.

    Doubt he'll be a world beater [and I don't expect him to be], but Babers system has a way of making average receiving talent look worlds better.

    I would agree to an extent with that if you are a team that rarely goes for it and then all of a sudden you take the gamble. However, if going for it in the right spots is part of your team's culture, desperation has nothing to do with it. It becomes more of an aggressive and "play the numbers" approach which I for one, really like. It's just smart football.

    Totes forgot about this kid! I think he's going to be our #2 WR this year. 80 catches for 950 yards and 8 TD. Does that seem excessive expectations?

    I think this kid is really going to surprise this year. Smart veteran with good measurables.

    I thought he would be productive but no way did I think he would put up those numbers.

    so, from looking at the Dieter thread and his announcement to transfer on Feb 13th last year - if the BG athletic director doesn't block him from going to SU, does AET end up at a different school? glad it worked out the way it did - thanks Bowling Green!

    Or they could have possibly had the team of Amba and Dieter.
