You can't handle the truth
Too logical, too obvious, too simple, therefore unacceptable to this board...
You guys on here talk about JHall like is some thug that has brought negative attention to the program. Coach Meyer had nothing but great things to say about Hall and his determination and leadership skills. I am just as excited as all of you to see these young guys come in and play. But I think we are putting so much stock in these freshmen coming in and making a monster difference as freshman. If they do, thats great, and I'm hoping that they do but it wont hurt to have a young man who busted his ass to get back out on the field and provides good leadership for the team. JHall can still be a productive player for this team and his leadership won't go un-noticed next season!
All the marbles huh?
Well, if that's true, we are going to need our offense to score a ton of points next year. I don't see this defense being as good next year. With the attrition and youth...they will struggle mightily. This team will NOT have a championship caliber defense in 2014. Not saying they will suck, but I see them being very average with glimpses of greatness.
This is what some of you guys are missing. Some are automatically assuming that the incoming freshman are going to come in and be diffrence makers. I think everyone assumed this years freshman linebackers were going to do the same thing. It doesn't always work out that way. Having Hall on the team next year may in fact help the freshmen see the field earlier. Leadership is not something that should be taken for granted. I think Hall could have a greater impact on a potential National Championship run than almost any incoming freshman RB that we could get. Not necessarily on the field as much as in the locker room and on the practice field. But remember, showing up and playing on Saturday is the culmination of all the work put in Sunday through Friday. I would like to have some difference makers Sunday through Friday as well.
