Griffin, Bedford, and Brewer are the three most gifted players on that team. And Bedford is, by far, the most talented receiver in the team (doesn't mean he will be the most productive this season). He wasn't red-shirted due to anything related to football.

Any clue what the offensive tempo will look like this fall? Seemed like season 1 it was super fast, other than the 2h of big blowouts where Withers just tried to end the games. Last year it seemed like the tempo was more controlled at all times to try to stay in and attempt to win games. What will season 3 entail as far as offensive tempo?

he mentioned last night that he definitely wants to run a high pace offense, and the jmu offense w/ vad lee is exactly what he's trying to do here.

Up tempo has always been the goal but he’s smart enough to know that if you can’t get first downs, your d will get worn down quickly, and the blowouts will get even bigger. When he trusts the offense to move the ball and not go 3 and out in 20 seconds, he will kick it into gear again.

Got the grad transfer for TE. A group I was worried about, so good to see them bring in a guy with experience even though he didn’t do much at OK State.

I don’t see Vatterott OL or Smith (safety transfer) on the roster. Neither have done anything for us but might also help explain Waddy to safety as previously mentioned.

Didn’t do much in the way of stats but I believe he played in 8 games, starting 2 last year. Generally, I would expect a big 12 starter on a good offense to come in and be an upgrade.

Quit picking nits. He started a couple of games for the second best offense in the big 12. Even if he never started, he was good enough to get on the field for them.

Brown redshirted as a freshman, was going to be in the rotation at WR his RS-Fresh year but had a season ending injury during camp.

His sophomore year, they moved him to a wide/receiver/fullback/tight end hybrid position they call their "Cowboy Back". He didn't get a lot of playing time behind the two upper classmen that year.

He was in the rotation at Cowboy Back last year but they had 3 guys who got regular playing time. OSU reports describe him as being "uber-athletic". We need athletes. He has good size at 6'3" 250. We need size. Good pickup.

just saying... /=

feel like it's a hell of a nice pickup for us though - having someone that is used to playing p5 ball on a squad that definitely knows how to move the ball can't be anything but positive.

trying to think of any other p5 transfers we've seen lately? easy doesn't count as he didn't play fb @ ut. yendry came from tcu, but when they were mwc...we had a defensive end from tamu - ebbitt, who did pretty great, but when we were playing that transition year in 2011. anyone else?
