[quote]I don't agree [/quote]
Mett is a hard read as for draft purpose in my mind.
His mediocre performances vs. Fla., Old Miss, and Arkansas are hard to understand after his dominate games vs. Ga. and Miss St. He had only 2 ints in his 1st 7 games, but had 6 ints in his last 5 games.

I wish Rivers all the best, but when 2 pretty successful coaches, Les and Cam, decide a true fr. on campus all of 2 mons should be #2 instead of a guy here 2 yrs and who had run #2 the yr before that tells me what went on in practice didn't speak well for Rivers.

[quote]Not sold on his arm strength just yet.[/quote]
Jennings released the ball at the LSU 42 and the LSU WR caught it on the run at the Hog 10. That's almost a 50 yd toss that appeared to be made without any special effort. I don't think "arm strength" is a valid concern with Jennings.

Shouldn't be hard to understand that you don't evaluate a season before the season is over either, but some seem to have a want to.

This year is still going on and no way a coach is gonna piss on a season that isn't over yet.
Personally, I'm not eager to have our coach slam his coaching for the world to see and use against us in recruiting.
