Something you may not have noticed. Seeing Hollister’s brother Jacob playing tight end for the Seahawks tonight prompted me to find out what Cody was doing. Turns out he was promoted from the Titans’ practice squad to the active roster in November and actually had two catches for 13 yards yesterday against the Colts. He was a practice squad guy in New England for two years before landing in Nashville this year.
Great kid. Happy for him.
And happy for The Hammer Watts!
Yeah Armon Watts batted that pass that turned into the Vikings’ pick six, if you didn’t see it.
Who are our current NFL Hogs? I’m too lazy to look it up.
List always changing but this was a snapshot earlier in the year, plus I’m adding Hollister.
Panthers: Bijhon Jackson (IR), Jarius Wright.
Browns: Chris Smith
Lions: Trey Flowers, Frank Ragnow, Dan Skipper (practice squad)
Packers: Randy Ramsey (PS)
Chargers: Hunter Henry
Vikings: Armon Watts
Patriots: Deatrich Wise, Hjalte Froholdt (IR)
Saints: Mitch Loewen
Titans: Cody Hollister
Eagles: Jason Peters
Niners: Dre Greenlaw
Bucs: Jeremiah Ledbetter (PS)
Redskins: Jeremy Sprinkle
He’s a great And willing special teams player, part of why he’s still in the NFL
The coach before Morris knew how to get players ready for the NFL…he proved that at two institutions.
And BA was throwing to Courtland Sutton in Denver, who Morris got ready for the NFL. Trey Quinn is Sprinkle’s teammate in Washington and also came out of Morris’ system. Quinn has 26 catches this year, Sutton has 54.
And he would still be here if not for recruiting missteps and the inability to hire good assistants.
Agree…I also wonder If you could get the truth out of CBB…did he lose the drive it takes to climb the mountain…I wished there could have been a meeting to discuss how much money was needed to get a better OL coach, DC, and Special teams coach. All 3 of those would need to be great coaches and even better recruiters. None of it mattered if the coach didn’t have a fire left to finish the job he said he came here to do. I know some have said he had a drinking problem…since I have never seen it I cannot comment on it.
Having said all of this. There is a growing theme at the U of A over the past several years. They are slow to address problems until the problem is so bad it cannot be fixed and the damage done to the program is almost catastrophic. That needs to change. We need leaders and doers not yes men/women and spectators. It all starts with leadership.
Excellent point Arlington about leadership. Long surely allowed Petrino too much rope as he did with Bielema. I’m confident that HY will be stronger.
Noted also is that meddling by a AD can be a problem. But clearly Long should have not allowed some things to occur with both Petrino and Bielema. At least IMO.
