    Start him. Shane Matthews was a 5th string bum at one point.

    I couldn’t help but laugh out loud at this.

    As bad as that 2013 team’s season was, this one is much, much worse.

    From the movie Diehard, I guess he and NFL running back Darren Sproles are no relation?

    Everybody thought Tyrie was out for the year. Just not rushing to judgment.

    I think he got on the field for a bit at the O&B game. Did OK, if I remember right. Play him, the remaining 2 games are the most meaningful practices we'll have until spring.

    Are we sure he wouldn't just put Toney back there instead?

    He has been out there on STs some, I'm pretty sure.

    I've seen a little video on him. He is more talented than Fatdog was, probably as talented as LDR. I'm sure he can throw a screen pass as well as the next Nuss coached QB.

    Here is some:

    Wasn't Kerwin Bell a 5th stringer as well?

    Dude will probably go out there, light it up against FSU, transfer, and then win the heisman and national championship somewhere else.

    Maybe if we can get a big lead on UAB (you know, like 17-10 or something) we can put in all the back ups and see what they can do!! :D
