    Wallace Franklin Reinstated

    Welcome back, Wallace! Depth--and more speed--is good!

    Knew someone was going to post it, might as well be me getting the credits.

    Re: Wallace Franklin Reinstated

    It will be interesting if he plays much. I still can't see him hitting the field with much frequency considering the amount of practice he's missed and how the freshman have come on.

    I will trust that Chizik made the right decision.

    Re: Wallace Franklin Reinstated

    I don't think he'll play much right away (IIRC, he has to sit out four days before he suits up in the first place), but I think he'll see the field as the season progresses. Despite how well the newcomers and other returnees are doing, we don't have that much depth--especially using three or four wideout sets. And Wallace has something the other returnees don't--pure speed.

    It was nice to see him and get his autograph at the fanfest today. Here's hoping he will contribute in his final year.

    The problem is, speed doesn't do much if you don't have the strength to break away from a defender. Unless he's gained a lot of weight and strength since I saw him in the spring scrimmage, I'm not too hopeful of him being a major contributor.

    I like being wrong, though.

    Re: Wallace Franklin Reinstated

    I'll take a receiver who can go get the ball, block, and make great catches over a 'fast guy' anyday.

    I hope Wallace proves us all wrong, but last year he was a bust.
