    Darius Darks

    Enough of the negative threads today, i wanna talk about how Darius has emerged as probably AA's go to guy for next season. Today he had 8 catches for 69 yards, and on the season he now has 37 rec (2nd on team to RJ) and 397 yards (2nd again to RJ).

    from what i have seen he is going to end up being one of the best in our history... to put it in perspective, todd blythe had 39 receptions in his freshman year and Darius still has 2 more games; but dont forget blythe averaged 21.4 ypc and had 9 TD's that season while darius is averaging 10.7 ypc and has just 1 TD

    Jones, Sed, Hamilton, and the TEs will also be good targets. Get these Freshmen in the weight room and keep them on the team and they could be special players. The Oline development will be key to sucess next year.

    Darks has much more potential than Blythe, and has looked very impressive this year. Blythe was a really great reciever though.

    Blythe had the size, but Darks is a very good athlete so that give him an edge. He wont be the TD threat that blythe was, but Sed could fill that role with some development. Darks just seems to have a knack for the ball and good hands.

    blythe was a great reciever... if we threw the damn ball to him

    Darks has been a bright spot for the future, maybe second only to LJ. I hope Sed can continue to improve and live up to his excitement as well.

    Re: Darius Darks

    as far as LJ goes, i like him, but i think that i like kennard better. kennard hits like mike brown or rodney harrison, hopefully he doesnt get injured like them too; he also seems to always going for the ball like peanut tillman.

    heres the thing though.. kennard is a juco transfer so next season he will be a senior... LJ is a true frosh and still has 3 years ahead of him

    Darks has great potential. Though he still does have quite a few drops.

    I love Darks and he seems to run nice routes but he has way too many drops.

    Re: Darius Darks

    Darks drops a lot of easy balls, but he makes some tough catches too, just needs to concentrate on the "gimmes".

    Re: Darius Darks

    Looking lik we need to also get the ball to Collin Franklin more. He is a bigger threat than Catlep. We actually need a deep threat on our team to take some pressure.
