Isn't that a white superlative? I mean, he's a heady tackling machine with great agility in the box and a high motor.

The guy has 5 career tackles, and is all of the sudden, "a tackling machine". This board really does make me shake my head sometimes.

must just come natural. Some players have the knack for being in the right spot to make the play and others are pile watchers.

I agree with all that but would add in that he also has good strength and is football tough.

football brains isn't the same thing as academic brains. Brain Urlacher and Dick Buttkiss disagree with ya'lls assesment that white guys cant play middle linebacker

Wow. How things have changed. 20 years ago, they'd have been melting down over a black QB. Now they melt down over a white MLB.

Personally? I think it's maybe 50-50 on whether he's ultimately the starter, but, if he hadn't been academically ineligible, nobody would be making a big deal about it because he would have been in the rotation.

Remember, when he came back for the bowl game, he played a fair number of snaps behind Minter. Those could have gone to one of the freshmen.

Look, I'll try to make it simple for the mentally challenged. Spring practice is not the Fall. The purposes are not the same. Now is the time to try out guys and give them a chance to prove what they got. The coaches are talking a lot of "stuff" trying to motivate and encourage marginal players.
Rantards, relax! Depth has to be developed now for the season. O.K.? O.K.!

Why aren't all these people melting down over Jordan Allen? Why didn't anyone melt down over Steltz playing safety? Would anyone be melting down if this was a 20 year old Andy Katzenmoyer? Maybe its because he looks tiny, played terrible in the only game he ever got any snaps, and failed off the team last year. But, that can't be it. Everyone that doesn't want him to start hates white people and all those people that are comparing him to Mike Singletary and Clay Matthews definitely don't see him as their great white hope.

Between Welter, Barrow, Tahj, Mills, and Ronald Martin; 5 three stars projected to start on the defense.

NB4 Star gazers saying we are taking a step back

See my post above. They are freaking because not only Welter is white, but a "3" star according to sites that are no where near the level of our coaches at evaluations.
