  1. At some point during the game an announcer mentioned Gareon's stats for the game. It was 3-4 catches for 90 some yards at that point IIRC.

  2. 3 catches for 81 yards, 1 rush for 8 yards. This is according to this

  3. Buried the headline here, is he going to stay committed? Recent statements about wishing he could go through the visit process along with some SEC interest, I am al bit worried we have this years brown here.

    1. When Tremendous talked to him a couple weeks ago Conley said he was solid to Michigan and he's gonna try to make it for the Sparty game.

  4. i was a huge ricky powers fan when i was a kid

  5. Gladney committed to Nebraska. Any word on if he beat Conley for some of those catches?

    1. Yeah, Gladney's a Cornhusker; got him temporarily confused with Rob Wheelwright. I meant to fix it but forgot. Not sure on whether Gladney beat Conley or not.

  6. Fortunately for Oregon he wants to help Pharaoh Brown out in Eugene. Comely day's UofO has been his fav for a long time.

  7. Still want this Kid to stay SOOOO bad. Would be a great wolverine.
