    5 D-I quality players!!!!

    I'm listening to Marty and Miller right now. They are saying Pollard and Chizik got together before the season and evaluated the roster. He reportedly told Pollard that from his standpoint there were 5 D-I players ont the roster. 5!!! Wow.

    I don't believe that conversation took place...only because that information would NEVER have gotten out to the public.

    If it's coming from Marty Tirrell's mouth, then we pretty much know it isn't true or accurate.

    Doesn't that D-Bag get all his insider info from his barber?

    It seems reasonable to me, although I'd prolly say we have 8-10 D1 players. Either way, still a disaster.

    Marty just likes adding salt to the wounds. He jumps on anyone when they're down.

    I would say most of our starters are D-1 talent, but maybe not BCS conference talent.

    Actually I find it more reassuring if its true.

    Re: 5 D-I quality players!!!!

    Regardless if it's true or not, the actual info likely got stretched. We have more than 5 D-I football players on our team.

    Big 12 starting caliber? That I can believe.

    Re: 5 D-I quality players!!!!

    I agree.

    Blythe
    Bowen
    Arnaud
    Bates
    Allen Bell
    JJ bass

    I would say that is about it. Meyer could have been had he learned his reads.

    For the record. John Quin (former Clone QB) can't understand why Meyer won't throw the ball to Blythe. Even if it is a fade he need's to get the ball thrown his way 10-15 times a game.
