    What impact do you guys think Trevor Hodge would have if moved to DB? Starter?, 2nd string? Bit player, with a chance to start in a couple of years?

    Don't know enough about him to have a solid answer in terms of ability to start...but I'll make an assumption he understands both sides of the ball (as a QB) and should be able to understand coverages, tendencies, offensive schemes that would translate to a new role like this. In terms of closing speed, physicalness, etc, not sure. Love that the staff is continually evaluating where to use people to maximize what we have on the roster.

    I think the most immediate impact would be to quiet the people complaining about how many quarterbacks there are on the roster.

    My next question would be whether he plays the same spot as his classmate Kamari Cotton-Moya or not.

    I love converting athletic QBs to WR or DB.

    I would predict he will do well.

    I remember when he comitted people were annointing him as the next Seneca because he was a black QB who can run

    So SR is completely out of the running? That is contrary to what I have been hearing.

    Hope he does well. Certainly has a better shot at seeing the field. He should get a good shot.

    And anyone who considered the possibility of him switching positions was labeled incredibly racist.

    I hadn't heard this till now.....so thanks. My reaction is I'm happy that he decided to stay, and give another position a shot, rather than transfer to a smaller school where he might of been able to play QB (Philip Bates). I hope he completely sells-out to the position and gives it a fair shake. Maybe in a year or so he will be a stud safety, but I don't know if he can learn the position and techniques for the 2014 season.

    He's going to be a safety. I have no idea how good he will be.
