New redshirt rule!
Player can play in 4 games and still redshirt.

New rule allows players to play 4 games without forfeiting redshirt

3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5.

That'll be very helpful.

Also, schools can no longer block transfers...meaning if Jalen Hurts decides to leave the bama program, he can transfer to Auburn and redshirt (as long as he doesn't play in more than 4 games).

Tall safeties rarely become exceptional.
I hope he’s the exception.

Few safeties become exceptional regardless of height.

True, but taller ones usually do not perform as well at the highest level. It’s just an oddity I’ve noticed over the years.

Makes no difference at all.  NFL safeties range from 5'9" to 6'3".  Marcus Allen of the Steelers is 6'2".  So is Maurice Alexander of the Seahawks.  If you can play the position, you can play it, regardless of height.

He's listed as 6'2", but he's likely a tad shorter. Average height of the safety position, in the NFL is 6'0"...I'm sure that extra inch won't hinder his exceptional abilities. He'll be exceptional...unless he isn't.

So we either have an NFL caliber tall safety, or another also ran?
I stand by my observation. You don't see a lot of really good tall safeties.
I would love to have one, but the odds are against it.

Why is he leaving Minn.?

Take it from someone who knows. Even an extra 4 inches has never hindered my abilities.

That's only because we've never had any

It was gross, and they were all stinky and dirty.  Then dude starts talking about eating his body and drinking his blood...I almost lost it.  That's the last supper I'll ever have there, and I hope he dies a horrible death."

Derrick Moncrief transferred in from JUCO. Was a step slow. But apparently good enough at OK. St.

You just put the exclamation point on my sentence.
