  1. Good for Brian! Did you read the article about taking care of his brother with autism? It's a good read, and he's way more liked.

  2. I have really high hopes for this kid. To my naked eye he looks like a special one

  3. What I find to be real interesting here is comparing the production of our two middle guard recruits. Mone is way the superior prospect by any physical metric you might care to employ, size, strength, maybe speed, I'm not sure on that one and the #4 rated DT in the country compared to little ... comparatively speaking ... Brady Pallante, the #62 or lower rated DT in the country who is just blowing Mone's doors off when it comes to production against what I would think to be superior competition.

    I do think it's likely that Mone gets a lot of attention based on size, but I can't believe that in a state where high school football approaches religion that coaches don't note Pallante's numbers and attempt to do something about him wandering around wreaking havoc in their backfield.

    Maybe what you have here is a nose tackle version of David Molk. I'd much rather look at it that way than think that somebody on his coaching staff can't count.

  4. High school production doesn't correlate to college success, and college production doesn't correlate to pro success. Brady Pallante doesn't appear to have the size necessary to be a good college DT.

  5. Is he still planning on being an early enrollee?
