    Do our players pass the eye test

    For those who attended the spring game: do our players look substantially stronger and fitter than they have in years past? Linemen especially ...

    I know looks aren't everything, but I think they are a reasonable indicator of progress.

    Re: Do our players pass the eye test

    Of course, a certain former CN editor was proclaiming that the players were passing the eye test last year, it might just be a matter of perspective...

    I know that the linemen aren't carrying around huge beachballs like they were a couple of years ago...

    Well on campus when I run into most football players I don't see them wearing glasses, but maybe they are wearing contacts...

    Actually, yes. I discussed this with someone in the stands. They all looked to be in pretty good shape, and we were excited because they all had summer conditioning ahead of them.

    The lineman pass the eye test.

    As far as size I don't think the DL and LB pass the eye test

    I thought James Smith, Chris Singleton, and Devin McDowell did. James Smith has some guns. He may be a poor man's Bob Sanders.

    I didn't see that one coming!

    If you are running into them on campus, then maybe it is you that needs the eye test.
