Count me as one who is not optimistic that we can hold on to all these recruits by the time signing period comes around. What if we have a very bad season and the fans are asking for Stoops head? What then? What if Stoops or a number of these assistants are sent packing, which could happen easily. What then?
He looks very athletic at WR, but I imagine him even better at safety, or LB. We need more guys like this to raise the level of athleticism to our LB corps and Defense in general. Anyone notice what "boring/conservative" Mark Stoops did at FSU last year? That defense was sick. Just full of athletes.
FSU gave up 19.6 ppg, Arizona gave up 22.7 ppg....... I guarantee they did not face near the offensive fire power that we did. I like our athletes on defense. Our linebackers under Stoops have always been a bit undersized, but have made up for it with speed and athleticism. Our safeties last year were not very good, but I like Flowers and Golden back there this year, they are very athletic and fast and big. I just hope this season we blitz more and play in your face, agressive defense. I think we have similar athletes on the field as FSU, it is Mike Stoops' philosophy of bend but dont break defense that makes good athletes look boring and conservative. If Kish has his way, he will blitz and play more aggressive and our players will look damn good playing that way.
Btw, I like Brooks at DB too.
