I really think Vad will benefit a bunch with the down time. He looks leg weary, no explosion in his runs right now. Even on his long run tonight he didn't look like he was able to really kick it into another gear like we've see in the past.
At the beginning of the year I thought Smelter might redshirt, just to get back in the swing of things as far as playin football. Also learning how to block, but the dude is a baller. The best we've had since bay bay. How good could he be if he didn't play baseball?
