    So after seeing this video, I'm trying very hard not to get to excited about football. With the O-line that we will have, the running backs and the receiving corp that will be on the field, if Mangino can make this unit gelled together it could be a very good offense. Should by far be the best of the Rhoads era.

    I sure can't remember a WR that had his size on our roster that had his athleticism and still was big play capable. Someone like Marquis Hamilton had great size but didn't have the home run in his bag of tricks (that I can recall).

    Love these big receivers!

    I wonder if he's kind of like Todd Blythe. Todd could get open deep. I hope he's like Blythe.

    I've been more excited to see him play more than anyone else, including Lazard. This guy could be a beast in the Big 12

    After the youtube video that Chris linked there was a video thumbnail from his USF days. He really has grown into a man.

    About D'Vario: Rumblings out of spring ball were not positive. Apparently he has taken a 180 as far as attitude and off-the-field stuff goes over the summer. Really grown up a lot. You can tell in that video too. It's a neat story, really.

    I was wondering what he meant by some of those comments. Thanks for clarifying

    I'm assuming that was you that asked "you almost sound surprised to be in the program?" I'm guessing he's been on pretty thin ice but hey, ISU fans LOVE comeback stories and second chances that success stories.

    I know this has been stated before, but this kid has serious talent. Anyone that was offered out of high school by, Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma, Florida, Florida State, etc.... has the raw ability to be great. Can someone tell me how many years he has left? I'm assuming 3 but I'm not 100%.

    When I first saw his interview I thought they had switched to interviewing LB's, seriously. Man is he huge. Can you imagine a 5'10 DB that's 180 lbs lining up in front of him. It's going to be real fun watching him and lazard the next few years.

    I think we are the only team in the league with corners that size. We have a lot of talent, size, and speed options at WR. That is why I'm so excited to have Mangino. He works with what he is given and exploits mismatches, but this cupboard is super full of talent.

    Is wr. Possibly our deepest position if everyone lives up to the height?

    The average NFL corner isn't even 6'0 and some of you think 5'10 is so ridiculous.

    Yeah. I'd definitely say so. We actually finally have some depth at linebacker now too. Which is refreshing and in the nick of time!
