    Rodgers Says Darks Will Play

    "Darius is going to play," Rodgers said. "He is a player. I'm really excited about him, and he's really progressed really well in the last couple of weeks."

    Re: Rodgers Says Darks Will Play

    nice read, good to see some step up from Darks and I love the after the play ability I am hearing Carlson has. A little was said of him, but not a whole lot about Sedrick Johnson overall yet from practice. Anybody heard anything on him or is he being kept under wraps? (i am sure that will be impossibe come the A&M game)

    He did haul in a big 49-yard reception in practice today though, so he's at least being eased back in.

    Re: Rodgers Says Darks Will Play

    According to a Michigan State fan on the CR free board who claims to know Darks, Darius is running with the 1s at slot receiver. Now, we know that this staff often alternates 1s and 2s, so maybe it doesn't mean he will start, but it certainly means the staff thinks a lot of him.

    Re: Rodgers Says Darks Will Play

    IMO, our group of receivers will be better than last year. I don't think it will be subtle either.

    But our QB last year was the opposite of green and he was not impressive (that was the nicest comment I could make).

    Right or wrong I feel as though there will be very little drop off if any at QB and we could see vast improvement. We need improvement at each position on the offensive side of the ball just to be average in the Big 12.

    Fundementally we have improved a ton at that position simply from graduation. Experience wise - that's a different story.

    However, I'm not sure we should be overly concerned with that - as well as decision making. It's not like the best decisions have been made at that position the last couple years.

    And no, I don't blame Meyer for all of that.

    Re: Rodgers Says Darks Will Play

    There is no doubt our WR's will be better than last year. Couldn't be much worse IMO. Todd Blythe would have loved to have Sed J and Darks line up with him. When was the last time a WR of ours got separation for a corner?

    Re: Rodgers Says Darks Will Play

    My best case scenario is that we run the ball superb early in the games in that running the ball effectively is going to make the passing game for Arnaud/Bates 100 times easier and will allow him to get into a groove. If we don't run the ball well early on and is forced to pass, might be giving up some turnovers.

    Re: Rodgers Says Darks Will Play

    Good news IMO. Anytime someone can come in and start, it means we're getting an upgrade in talent.

    Right.

    I think as the season wears on, we'll see RJ move into the #3 and even #4 receiver role.
