    Update

    Just a litte update from a convo i had with a buddy of mine on the team.. he said that the team is going to be "raw" this year, which is good. for those that were worried, Bibbs and Franklin are both in ames, Bibbs was also quoted on being "raw" and Franklin has hops, as he dunked it over LB Jon Banks when the players were playin Bball for fun. Allen Bell is the fastest on the team in 40 and shuttle, and JJ Bass is "The best back out there, he cuts and shifts like a f*ckin razorblade"

    Just thought some of you would enjoy the info

    Re: Update

    I generally don't consider "raw" to be a good thing. Thanks for the information, though.

    Re: Update

    Raw, I'm glad you said that was a good thing. I've never heard that one before.

    If Bell is good in the 40 AND the shuttle, is he our assumed kr/pr?

    Doesn't JJ have the size to run over people along with those razorblad moves as well?

    Sounds good though, thanks!

    Re: Update

    Do you mean raw as slang for good? I interpreted it as the opposite of polished. Like we're a work in progress, which I wouldn't doubt is true.

    Sounds good. I'm cautiously optimistic that we could surprise some people.

    Re: Update

    How do the O and D lines look compared to last year? If they're looking better, we may be in for a better than expected season...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Re: Update

    when say "raw" I would think it means that they have raw talent(naturally athletic), they just need some coaching.

    BTW. I am a CR subscriber and do not get half of the inside that isuclones33 gives. Thanks Paul should put you on the payroll.

    Re: Update

    Good to have you sharing your inside info 33.

    I believe if our D is better than expected (which is possible with Bell on the field and Chizik coaching) and the O-line can hold it's own, the 'Clones will have a solid year. Maybe stating the obvious, but my 2...

    Re: Update

    I think our LB's will be WICKED AWESOME. BBB, Bowen Banks n Bibbs! our DB's will be good and deep with the addition of Bell. Bell can be the shutdown corner weve had the last couple years with HobbsIII and DJack. Im only worried about our Dline. Who will start? Parker and Tuba probably, but who else?

    Re: Update

    No problem guys, I use to be an avid Cyclone Reporter, until Paul decided to make everything premium members only, I contribute already to the cyclone athletic department, and i have some pretty good buddies on the team and ties with coaches so why pay for a subscription. Anyhow, Doug Dedrick is looking good i hear so thats great news for the O Line and ill see what i can find out about the D Line, i know that alot of players have been sifting through positions on the D line and nothing is even close to being final. Two a days will determine alot for both of the lines. Needless to say, i think we are in excellent hands, i get nothing but praise from the players on how much they like these coaches, no matter how much they are getting worked out. Coach Shep is an outstanding strength coach and he and torre becton can also man handle just about anyone on the team, and the fact is, Becton can run his 40 pretty dang fast for an old fellla. Also Coach Bolt can make anyone laugh, and when the guys can have a laugh at practice, it keeps the morale up.

    Are you hearing anything on how Blaes is progressing this summer? I would feel a lot better if he and Dedrick were both good enough to start.

    thanks for the updates 33. I understood what you meant by "raw" but that is a tough slang word to translate in written text haha
