Seems most coaches avoid starting a true fr corner day one no matter how well he has performed in practice. Seems they typically prefer a test run in real games before turning over the lead roll. Unless Rico is affected by injury (new or still) I would have expected to see him snap one even if the Fr took over in short order.
Is Rico still or reinjured thus accounting, in part, for a true Fr day one start?

Rico got injured his true Fresh year in 2012. Played some last year but wasn't back to full speed. He is now and is battling for the starting spot opposite Brison.

Regardless he is one of the top 3 CBs and will be counted on heavily this year and play a ton

Hopefully his daddy will coach him up on dealing with your emotions in big moments, because Thursday is almost here and it's gonna be crazy, and they will be throwing at him early.

I can't imagine how he is getting to sleep this week. I'd need some bourbon and whole milk.

His cover skills and footwork are better than any CB we have and as good as Grady has seen. The concern is how much help he can provide on the run game. I bet Grady just told him to blanket his man all over the field and let the rest of the dbs handle the rest. Also Brison has been a stud at a corner. Not so worried.....yet

What you worry about most with a freshman is not his ability or athleticism, but just making a bad read due to inexperience and blowing the coverage. His FB IQ though is pretty high given his father's coaching and influence, so hopefully he has absorbed it all and had enough repetitions in camp so that won't be a problem.

We don't match up like that. We play a field corner and a boundary corner.

Wasn't a al Harris jr a 4.4 guy? Youth at cb can be combated by depth and experience at the safety position, which we have. Last year a bunch of the secondary admitted to free lancing at times, so who knows maybe with freshmen playing early people will be more disciplined in playing their assignments.

Go low baby. Wrap up those legs and wait for the Calvary of Cocks to clean it up.


But yes, it is a concern and also they have 6/6 277lb TE to deal with.

The big dudes cannot run when their feet are off the ground. He might be able to fall forward for a few yards though.

Interesting comment by Elliott, he said that if Knott had been healthy all camp that he would be starting at Center.

Waldrop also more comfortable and a better fit at Guard.

Good to have some interior depth there with Sport and Knott who can play C and G.
