    In a few years, we’ll see Kendall Wright at the top of that list. He already has 71 this season with 4 games to go.

    cj2k is still a dangerous weapon if known how to be used correctly , unfortunately since coach munch took over we haven’t been able to run the football. NO ONE is goin to break through the line when the defense know its a run and we cant block for them.
