no love for Reggie on the thrope as of yet. Dang what does the guy have to do, kill someone before they see how good he is.

on a side note, you notice Hetland is not on the list for best kicker. There is a reason.

Laurenitis for Best LB :D

That kid is a joke, he is so late on plays and really doesnt make as much as an impact as they try to make him out to be. He is getting the pub cause his dad was a wrastler, big deal. that kid from Penn state is more of a MLB machine and gets no love.

You have to be kidding me. The guy is a ball hawk. He is in on every play. What games have you been watching? Just goes to show you can judge a player from 1 game.....

I have watched about 4 full Ohio state games and I do not think he is as good as some of the other top LB's around. Everyone wants to compare him to AJ Hawk but come on, AJ was unstopable, Mr. Animal Jr. still needs some work. He is late on alot of plays and really look horrible late in the Illinios game (i remember 2 missed takles that he was made to look silly but nobody said anything about those). I still think he is overhyped and a product of alot of good players around him.

:shakeno: Of course he isnt going to be better than Hawk in his SECOND YEAR! has what 100 tackles 3-5 sacks 5 ints. Please he has swung the momentum when Ohio St started slowly.

I didnt say he didnt deserve to be on the feild, but i think he is overhyped. There are 10 better linebackers in the nation, penn state has 2. He might be great someday but right now he is very average IMO.

i said i dont think he is a top 3 linebacker, he is doing pretty well for a soph. but come on, he doesnt dominate, he doesnt change game plans, he is a product of a good system. sorry to rip on your guy but he should not win the buttkus (sp.)

I'm not really surprised that Nelson is behind Hall. I haven't seen any national praise of Reggie, even though he's had an amazing year.
I'm sure any team that's played UF knows how good he is though.

If it was popularity, I doubt Woodley or Brennan would be up there on the lists. I doubt two Penn Staters would be on the best LB list too if it went by popularity.

I'm pretty sure the polls there are just fans opinion, and don't actually have bearing on who gets the awards. But, I'll have to go back and check.

Edit: Ok, it counts as one official vote. That's probably like nothing in the overall scheme of things. I'm sure there are plenty of other voters who have better evaluations of the players than we(the fans) do.

you do realize that Reggie nelson is a saftey right, not a CB, we really dont line him up in man coverage too often and would not against your #1 reciever. Glad to see you know nothing about football, oh wait, some of your other post prove that too.:lol2:

Lol, thanks for proving your own point against you.....so If we go to 5 wide..your gonna replace R. Nelson for a #4 CB??

And even in a zone defense where the CB follows the WR(ginn maybe) for 12-15 yds. and releases him to the deep saftey(nelson maybe)..then whatta ya get?

Its very likely that they will be matched up more than once..and although I love Reggie Nelson's ability he cant defend a world class WR step for step with an accurate QB delivering the ball..you really cant expect ANYONE to do that.

IMO we'll see either Nelson or Smith on Ginn most of the game. I expect to see mostly zone coverage though. The correct scheme can compensate for speed for the most part. No one is doubting Ginn's speed.

no, we can line up 5 CBs if we need to. have not had to yet this year but that would be interesting to see the formation. UM had one saftey line up on a reciever and one play cover one, and all troy did was look to who the saftey had. I thought it was great game planning but now Meyer has seen it and the UF staff will have a plan, we will have to see if it is the answer.

I actually think Stoops deserved this. He's one of the best coaches in CFB and showed that in his ability to pick this team up and lead themafter AD's injury. People forget that they lost that this team sucked *** last season and they made a big imporvement this year. A testament to Mr. Stoops.
