I was checking out Matt Garcia's Hudl profile after I saw his HC tweet this:

Evan Breisblatt‏ @Pasdfootball

Congrats to @mattwgarcia will be continuing his academic and athletic career @UMUFootball ! Size don't matter. Can't measure your heart!



He is not a big RB.  5'6" 165.  Definitely small.  But this kid is a monster in the weight room:

Squat:  440
Clean:  260
Bench:  300
Dead:  540
Vertical:  37

Those are huge numbers for a 165 lb HS kid.  He ran for 1820 yds and 18 scores in 10 games in PA's 2nd largest division.  I'm officially intrigued.

$16m in year 1 is a nice haul for PG.  Glad to see him get a nice pay day.  Everything you read about him is that he's a tireless worker and the consummate team first guy.  It's easy to root for guys like that.

And given his philanthropic history, I suspect Haiti will also be reaping the rewards.  Great day all around.

If he's such a philanthropic guy maybe he could send me the $180 I lost when his Super Bowl touchdown on the last play of the quarter cost me both pools I was in.   ;)  ;D

Ouch.  But I suspect his heart is more in Haiti than Whitewater. ;D

Bradley Mitchell from mount union had a great day today at the Toledo pro day... 5"5 170
19 at 225 (that's more than some olinemen at the combine)
36"vert
9"4 broad jump
4.48 40 time

Also saw Tre Jones and Sherman Wilkinson recently. Both were surprised I recognized them, but had a nice chat with them both. Tre said he's working out full time and is supposed to get a call from the Buccaneers this summer. Sherman is working in business right now.

Man, those are impressive results for BJ.  Great job!  Obviously the issue are those first two numbers though.

Those are incredible numbers for someone five and half inches tall.  170 seems kind of heavy for someone that size though.  ;)  :D

Seriously, good luck to him.

Those would be great measurable if he was 6'-5".
I find easily offended people rather offensive!

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible- but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.

Statistics are like bikinis; what they reveal is interesting, what they hide is essential.

Interesting.  Roger Ingles is headed across town leaving OWU and heading to Cap to be the new AD.  Definitely made me do a double take when I heard it.  Ingles has been at OWU forever.  And OWU as an athletic department is in much better shape than Cap currently.  Maybe he wants a new challenge.

Ingles to Cap

Were the scouts looking at BJ as a runner or as an athlete? Im thinking he will change positions to get a serious lookysee. Maybe a special teamer? Im wishing him well but if Kmic didnt impress the pros then how is BJ gonna top him? I believe that "Metcalf up the middle" has ruined it for all smallish potential running backs nowadays. Barry Sanders types only arise in a blue moon. Good luck to him anyways!
