    Since it's the season to speculate on tweets and such: Calvin just liked Keyshawn's "Back on top soon, patience" tweet.

    Except our coaches don't view slot receivers like some of our fans do. For instance DPE plays on the outside, not in the slot despite his size. Also Brandin Cooks played all over the field for Riley and Co. I don't think they would have a problem going 4-wide with Spielman, Calvin and Lindsey all the filed together.

    i just liked a tweet from my buddy that said McRib is the best McDonalds sandwich. I'm a vegan.

    Translation from other people I'm friends with - Tuco is no longer a vegan

    Do you plan to make an official announcement, or are you going to leave us all hanging?

    Sure, and I've definitely made that argument before, in the other thread freaking out about the lack of Big Body receivers, I started this position.

    It still works though, if you are going to put guys all over the field rather than "big guys outside, little guys inside", there are going to be plenty of snaps to go around.

    Especially considering the board consensus was, KJJ might be the one most in need of a year off to really contribute. And the speculation about his diet, what Phillip could do for him, etc.

    too many are trying to translate NFL measurables to the college game ... get your top WRs on the field and don't worry so much about height and size

    We also go 3x1 more often than 2x2 when in 4 WR sets. Which allows for DPE to be matched up on the field side 1 on 1 or at worst, with the field side safety playing closer to the middle of the field. They also put Stanley Morgan out there like that.

    With that said, I don't think the staff recruits Jamire as hard as they did, thinking they were going to redshirt him if they landed Lindsey. As nice of players as DPE and Spielman are, Jamire is equally skilled as a receiver. In my opinion.

    I hate unsubstantiated rumors but there was something this morning percolating about Johnson leading to passing on Oyemaobi. As unsubstantiated of a rumor as there can be, but its NSD so stories fly.

    USC is cleaning house today. Any chance they are full and have to pass on Johnson? A guy can dream, right?

    Unless I'm missing someone, we have signed all players who were verbal commits to us with the exception of Calvin (announcement pending).

    Hawkins signed with Cal. Not sure if that means much in regards to receivers like Calvin, etc but worth noting

    I put two of those down last time they had them buy one get one for $1.

    For about the next 3 hours, I just felt............ well, not right. Almost like I had a combination of five guys and taco bell for lunch.

    He also liked the tweet which stated "Your annual #nationalsigningday reminder: attacking 18 year old kids on Twitter b/c they didn't choose your alma mater is a disgrace"

    I go to McDonald's on Fridays during Lent because nothing on their menu contains "meat."

    I could be a vegan except for one thing: Bacon

    Any diet or religion that forbids bacon is an inhuman abomination.

    FWIW, Oyemaobi's speed may be lacking. Would have made the Husker "all time name" team though and seems like a good kid. I think we have another option for that spot.

    Never realized the bell meant 'STOP DON'T EAT THAT ITS MEAT".

    Series just took on a whole new meaning.

    I was wondering last night if Oyemaobi was tipping his hand. He sent out a picture of the top of his National Letter of Intent on a big red tablecloth.

    I don't know. Red is a fairly common tablecloth color. But you said it was a big red tablecloth. WinkingWinkingWinking
