Hats off to the oldest player in college football.

I’m surprised that there aren’t more 40 and 50 year old players playing D2 and D3 football not just as kickers. Older guys with good  can be very strong. But the loss of speed with age is what makes D1 out of reach. 

I can lift more weight than a decent amount of D1 players my size, but I have no speed at all, and it takes me longer to recover from exercise and injuries. In my best shape, for example, I can bench 225 lbs 18 times, no cheating, bar has to touch chest to count. But my 40 time would probably be 6+ seconds. And I would injure easier.

Just a cool story IMO.  Not sure if he'll see the field, but I'm proud that he's a RAM.

Cute story, but if you guys don’t have anymore impact players left on your board to get, you should be lining up and signing NR to 2 star HS players that look to have a lot of potential and after a bit of development could end up being a major impact player. 

CSU’s recruiting classes have been good on paper since BooBoo came along, but it’s not translating into the field. That’s definitely a coaching problem, not a recruiting problem. Polian had some classes that weren’t great, but were very respectable, but those recruits didn’t get developed much. If Ault had had the same players, he would’ve had a lot more success and had 2 players get drafted from that class. I don’t believe Polian had even one player drafted in all of his classes that he recruited or while he was the HC.

It helps that your man boobs are 44DD’s.

You have great ideas.   And you are D1 ready as well.  Dont let this board fool you.   The pack needs your super human strength.
