You are aware that Cobi is already projected as the top WR drafted next year, right? Marquel Wade is a difference making WR who was trying to get PT in a group of Senior WRs who will all play in the NFL.
I wanted the splash with this kid and he likely would have been a key in getting over the top and beating the top 2 teams in the country last year that kept US out of the NC game... but if my choice is Peters, Diamond and some other great WR or DGB, I'll take the former every time.
We're competing for National Championships here now.... not worrying about being better than Vanderbilt.
I suppose you are right. This all just stings me a little more because this kid (DGB) came out of my high school. After three Boulevard Wheat's I'm starting to step back from that ledge.
I trust that Petrino's offensive scheme will continue to roll, but it's always going to be in the back of my mind how DGB would match up against Bama or LSU's number one cornerback, while the rest of their defense is being pressured by our various other weapons you highlighted.
On a more positive note, I am glad to see the improvements we've made the last couple years in recruiting the defensive side of the ball.
