PlayerDad - Thank you so much for your great post. I enjoyed reading it. You seem like a cool guy.

And I am totally on board with what you had to say regarding the young players, that Stitt recruited, need to mature and when they do, LOOKOUT!!! i myself have posted that feeling before. This team is building into something great.

Thank you to your son and to your family for choosing The University of Montana :!:

WE ARE MONTANA!!!

Very cool, playerdad...agree a mobile qb enhances this offense, whether it's extending plays in passing game, designed throws that move the pocket, forcing a defender into spy coverage, or built in qb draws, read options, etc...

Mr. Banks is my guess.



Neither.


It's Mr.Torres.
If true, he is my favorite recruit's dad.
I have found it is impossible to please everyone. On the other hand it is really easy to piss everyone off.

Since we are talking about Torres. He was a highly recruited 3 star offensive lineman last year, and I haven't heard much about him. Does anybody know how how he is progressing? Is he projected to be in the mix as a redshirt freshman?

I believe there are at least two red shirt freshman that have been mentioned as possible starters....that is how good that class really was......everyone, senior on down is goin to have to compete hard for a starting job, as it should be...

On the OL? Because as a whole I think we could see at least twice that number take starting spots.

This year I want to see the best person on field at each position regardless if it is a freshman or senior. Just want whoever performs the best to be out there.

Me too. I think that was a huge problem last year.

I think there is at least one RS FR at each position that will challenge for a starting spot. Save maybe the DL and LB.

Jackson, Torres, and Beaver (my favorite) at OL.
Lewis Cowans at CB.
Jensen at QB.
Green at RB.
Crow at safety. (Maybe a year away, but a future star)
Toure and Akem at WR.

Don't forget Dareon Nash at WR. Dude has big upside and coaches high on him as well. Then you also have Brennan Corbin and Jed Nagler. Stacked!

"To be the best, you have to beat the best." Heard that on here somewhere, time to time. ;)

Holds for player-on-player just as it does for team-on-team. The good news is, a player can work his ass off and have another chance week-to-week (under a good coaching staff) ... unlike a game lost for the team.

So ... GO GRIZ (players) :egriz:
