    Re: BLOG: The evolution of Rodney Coe

    If I recall 'Tuba Rubin was in a late-ending summer Juco class, arrived in Ames on a Tuesday for practice and started on Saturday.

    And he was in horrible shape...

    Fortunately, the position itself is in better shape itself now.

    Re: BLOG: The evolution of Rodney Coe

    Here is my biggest fear with Coe. Recruited as a RB. Ate his way to DL. Inconsistent effort. Both signs of lack of discipline. Great plays made followed by where the hell was Rodney on that play?

    reminds me of a true fresh who started on the DL at Oklahoma and won a national championship. Big Mo Dampeer. He finally was told by the great coach Mel T he could not play because he could not stop gaining weight. See link.

    The staff has a challenge here. Especially pressing the issue is lack of depth.

    Maybe the difference is that Rodney doesn't have a big, fat gut--and you're comparing apples to oranges?

    I know of someone else who converted from being a big running back in high school to defensive line in college. Michael Carter did okay at SMU.

    Lets hope so. Rod still has to prove the track record of academic issues, inconsistent play, and trouble gaining weight. To date he has ridden talent. That works at a JuCo against 18 and 19 year olds. He will be playing against men. Talented ones when talking Big XII.

    Big Moe grew to that big gut. That's the point.

    Rooting for him. I just believe his past history that smacks of lack of discipline needs corrected. This isn't IWCC. Nor their competition.

    Academic issues? If he graduated from JC (as he must have), doesn't that break that "track record" of academic issues back in HS?

    Re: BLOG: The evolution of Rodney Coe

    I have not see RC in person or a picture of him lately either, but Wally was quote as saying he is 305 and looks like 275, so he is probably not the giant tub of goo some of you are picturing. Will this make him a great DL? I sure do not know, but even though his weight gain has been amazing, at least it doesn't sound like it is all flab.

    That was Shane...and what would he know about it?

    After all, when I can make inferences from some vague "facts", what does that compare to the word of a coach who has actually met and worked with the kid? Hello???

    Why do you think he had to go to IWCC in the first place? I get how some want to defend any prospect blindly. I am more a realist. Lets hope he has matured.

    I'm realistic enough to know that if a kid STILL had "academic issues", he wouldn't have graduated from a JC in two years.

    Is that clear enough?

    He had a problem. He took the measures to fix it. Evidence right seems to say that he grew up a little.

    Coe still has to prove himself on the field. I've got no problem with that. Making problems from things that he worked out is redundant to me.

    I don't know why he had to go to IWCC in the first place, other than that he didn't qualify academically. I don't know the reason for that, which could be a great many things. Apparently, neither do you, and yet you are making suppositions beyond that fact.

    Two years at a JC is plenty of time to establish a new trend. Some players struggle to get their degrees even after three years, plus a summer term. Rodney didn't. I'll give him credit for that.

    Re: BLOG: The evolution of Rodney Coe

    There'a a guy who scored TD's as a running back at Texas that now starts at DT for the Bears.

    I'm not saying this is the same but jeez, cool it on the "I fear" stuff.
