    You definitely made a dumb comment.

    Not based on race, he has NFL size, he appeared to be in good shape, and he had a good camp. He sniffed the field this season, and I had hoped he'd contribute next as a fifth year senior.

    What does that matter? There's a point in your college career where upside stops meaning something. Also, he's been in the program for 4 years. 3 OCs and 3 WR coaches have had eyes on him and he can't get on the field.

    Yep. I had hoped he could turn the corner. I'm super sorry if this offends you and tweedle dum.

    Austin Collie is 6'1 205, Akile Davis is 6'2 205.

    Again why is it obvious I am choosing Davis?

    Offend me? He can't get on the field over a couple of true freshmen, not to mention Hifo and Pau'u, all who are returning next year. I'm certain we will be able to replace his production. We should be thanking him for freeing up a scholarship. I would cut every 5th year senior not in the 2 deep.

    Sorry, I meant Dylan, but I have a fondness for the name Austin, and I guess I just typed it.

    Yeah, I just had high hopes for him.

    Well I was wrong anyways.

    According to BYUs website Austin Collie is 6'2 206 and Akile is 6'2 205. Collie wins!

    I am honestly curious where the high hopes for Akile came from. I mean that sincerely.

    He had 20 receptions for 286 yards his senior year of high school.

    He was a marginal 2 star recruit

    He had 3 total offers with North Texas being the best besides BYU

    Bronco actually thought he was so bad he made a comment about guys not redshirting and "moving them through the program" Akile was part of that group and blew his entire freshman season playing 3 snaps against Wagner

    His first 3 seasons at BYU he totaled 1 reception for 9 yards

    This past season when he was allegedly doing good things in practice, he had 4 receptions for 47 yards.

    He has occupied a scholarship for 4 years with zero production. But you expected him to break out next season?

    Correcting GM warranted your time to research all that? Or did you know it all off the top of your head?

    I saw him on STs (he had decent speed) and I talked with him at a BYU event. Physically, he looks like he had the potential, but as you meticulously noted, it never panned out.

    Ok that makes more sense. He was nice to you at a BYU event, you became a bit biased. Fair enough.

    Maybe Hoge can head up to Pocatello and bring those others with him, they always need help.

    That's where a lot of people think Kirby is headed. He could probably benefit from the academic expectations up there.

    People on this board feel BSU is an academic wasteland, ISU takes it to a whole new level. They have a good coach down there and it's a program doing better, probably would be a good place for some of them.

    Oh I know. People's went from ineligible with 0.8 GPA at BYU to being a two time academic all conference at ISU. And that was while selling drugs too!

    He had more offers than that. Maryland, Indiana and SDSU were some of the others.
