I love the Fournette pick. But if we're down 2 or 3 scores then we have to pass the ball. Which means Bottles has the put the team on his back. Leopold will say I'm crying. But Bortles will need to fix that motion before 10 wins happens.
I imagine Fournette will make a big difference in getting those goaline scores in the first quarter that we seemed unable to do last year.
Lets look at the facts. If you were Mr. Khan or Lamping and IT dude approaches and says we need to spend this amount of time, money and resources to restore the message board functionality what would they say?
If they read or have read the amount of vitriol that is spewed forth daily on the board about the team, the front office and at times the owner himself and every damn thing else from the unis to the design of the flex field / amphitheater. Why would they say yes?
In thinking about it if it were me I probably would not spend a dime on it. What good does it really do the team? There are no advertisements, it's not sponsored by anyone that I can tell.
I feel like its literally no money at all, and all someone has to do is hit the 'update' button. But we are that low in the priority. I can understand. There's no direct revenue from the board probably. I have enjoyed the board, and will continue to do so till it dies from attrition or malignant take down.
You guys have no idea. He's young and can make a sub-par o-line look great. He fights for every yard and punishes defenders. He wears out defenses and has stamina that's unheard of. He can RUN. Scouts have compared him to Bo Jackson and Adrain Peterson for a reason. He's been a star since he stepped into LSU. He's literally a rare talent and I'm telling you that the people who doubt this pick will eventually be wearing his jersey. He is a STUD.
He might be good, but the characteristic you just described doesn't fit IMO. Even tho I agree about him fighting for yards and being fast. Not having wiggle or good cutback ability hurts when your line doesn't get push.
