  • I think it's pretty cool. Cole Kelley is a badass. I can't wait for him to have the experience to start. I've never been so excited about a 2* player. Talk about a complete steal.


    More importantly, more foot injury stuff. I wonder what the hell is going on with that.

    4* on ESPN, 3 on 247 composite... A lot of the LSU guys/fans were upset they didn't go after him. Offer wise though, still considered a steal.

    As for the foot injuries, CBB stated it's normal. We might have had a bit more bad luck, but he mentioned one team this year has had 6 this year since spring. Players getting bigger/faster, shoes getting lighter, maybe not as much support.

    AND No. 2 punter.  Could see some surprises out of punt formation...

    What was the deal? He's very fast, and a very smooth runner. Somebody we've had an offer to since he was a sophomore in HS and somebody that Bama pursued very hard as well. Speaking of Bama, JJ's playing style is very reminiscent of Amari Cooper. Not quite as physically imposing as say a Julio or a Green, but Cooper was just as productive as those two and is right up there with them at the NFL level as well.

    He's listed among the scariest offensive players to defend against and has proven to be a deep threat in the scrimmages so far including iirc a 60 yard reception this most recent scrimmage.

    Which coach taught him to catch 60 yard touchdown passes?

  • Which coach taught him to catch 60 yard touchdown passes? 
    Might be they think he should be catching 60 yarders a lot more. Maybe he doesn't use the proper technique to beat a Jam at the line. Maybe his routes aren't crisp allowing a DB to close to fast. Maybe he doesn't give enough effort blocking down field when we run. Could be anything. But I would hope a WR at a D1 school can catch a ball, even one thrown 60 yards.

    Exactly.   Coach to a player's strengths. Don't ask a kid to do something he's incapable of. I feel another Dominique Reed/Korliss Marshall coach-player relationship forming.  Arkansas kid with all world speed and atheltic ability who doesnt fit the "culture."   Be akin to telling Daily he has to play a round without using his driver.

    Wow this mentality of jumping to conclusions and blaming the coaches is really getting ridiculous.
    CBB runs a tight program, he expects a lot out his players, we don't challenge for the Fulmer cup anymore, and if a player struggles with the rules it must be the coaches fault. There is no I in team, the sooner these guys figure that out the sooner they can contribute with the GOD given talent they have.

    The "culture" you so despise, is what makes these boys into men that are accountable and productive young men, ready to contribute to society in whatever they may venture into after college, yeah terrible I know that we should ask so much from them.

    They should just run fast and catch footballs. sarc/

    While you are being sarcastic, most fans and certainly most on this board don't care what type of men these players become after college. It's all about what they do on the football field. Sad......but fact.

    So you are suggesting a guy can't make it through college and be productive members of society without the tutelage of CBB? Wow ok. 
  • #24 by ZERO on 14 Aug 2017
  • 2*???

    I never check ESPN, so I don't know about their rating, but Cole was rated a 2* by Scout and Rivals throughout almost his entire recruitment. They may have changed it toward the end, but I used to check them all the time thinking surely they're about to re-evaluate him (or evaluate him for the first time if 2* is just their default) and it seemed to never happen. Glad to hear he got some respect if that isn't the case.

    No that's not what I said, but if you don't understand that being held accountable and instilling some discipline is a big part of helping a young man grow up, then I don't know what to tell you.

    I guess we should have one set of rules for most players and another set for the guys from in state that can run really fast? Yeah I can see how that would be a good thing.

    First off none of us know the complete details.  He mentioned that he needs to grow up but later said he was a good kid.  I took it as it's Jordan Jones time to step up but he hasn't 100% bought in yet.  I think as a coach you have to push a player to grow.  I think he knows the sky is the limit for him and he's just trying to get him to reach his potential.

    As far as saying that BB isn't playing to his strengths I completely disagree.  With Marshall it was off the field stuff that kept him away from the field.  You really can't blame BB for that.  Then Reed had problems showing up on time, gaining weight, learning the playbook, etc.  At some point you have to have a player that can do more than one thing.  If he only ran streaks then the DB can play him deep every time.  They tried a sweep with him and he fumbled.   What if you had a RB that couldn't block? It doesn't take long for the defense to realize when that player is in they are probably running the ball. Also, if you make an exception for one player with the rules then you are asking for all kinds of problems.

    I listened to the audio feed and Agree with the previous poster. Coach said he has some growing up to do but sounds like he likes Jones.

    Daily won a few tournaments and had some flashes, but what did he do over the long term?  There are a ton of golfers that came in about the same time as Daily that were never real flashy, but made nice careers for themselves without the drama.  We don't need any flash in the pan players that can't be depended on when it counts.  We have enough talented WR prospects that we don't need to give playing time to any player that doesn't have their stuff together.  Drew Morgan would have never gotten playing time in front of Jones based on ability alone.  However, I wouldn't trade production for potential.  Playing players on potential too much and too long will bite you in the long run.  I will take the coaches decision every time.  He is the one there and seeing what they are doing.  My guess is the coaches want the players on the field that best gives them the chance to be successful.  Sometimes that means NOT playing the better athlete and player.
