    He will only play if there are significant injuries again (let's hope not)

    But I hear this kid Duron Carter is the real deal.
    He'll never beat out Titus Ryan for playing time......

    I certainly hope so. And, I believe this is his last chance.

    Been said before, but I think ben's problem was he came from a small classification school (3a or 4a). He was a stud in hs...just so much more physically dominant that success came easy..."big fish in small pond". I just don't think it prepared him for competition at the Capstone.

    I don't think so, I'm assuming the athletic dept would supply plenty of noxema.

    Since we're doing random trivia, the Rhein Fire cheerleaders still actually exist.

    Also, Oliver Luck (Andrew Luck's father) was GM and then president of the Rhein Fire. He will be the XFL's commissioner.

    What were we talking about again?

    I think Ben will see playing time, on a limb to say later in the year significant contribution, of anything at least special teams. I base that on the idea that I Think there has to be a reason he hasn’t transferred.

    Didn’t Ben play HS ball in Pickens county? If so, he likely never faced a high level of competition before he set foot on campus. He’s a big fish from a small pond.

    Perhaps some guys are happy just to be part of a team and all that goes with that?
