McFadden Beats #1

Has Darren McFadden reasserted himself as the #1 overall prospect in the 2008 draft? After the overtime upset of #1 LSU, the answer may be yes. McFadden put up his usual unbelievable numbers out of the wild hog offense which included 32 carries for 206 yards and going 3/6 passing with a Td. Dear Mike Shannahan, please get this kid at all costs. You blew it with Lawrence Maroney and Marshawn Lynch.. get it right this time! Travis Henry is unreliable!

That's my inner blue and orange speaking out, but yeah... McFadden is a beast.

Chris Long's Number Retired

Today at the UVA VT game the Cavaliers decided to retire Chris Long's #91 before the game. The reasoning? "He embodies everything Virgina football is supposed to be" or something like that. Or is it because Chris is just that nasty and is already #4 on Mel Kipers big board before the Bowl Season?

The Evolution of Pat White

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Should he consider entering after his junior season, WVU QB Pat White will be one of the most intriguing draft prospects. At 6'2 186 lbs, most draft scouts have him down as an "athlete" or wide receiver right now, but I think Pat has a legit shot at QB'ing in the next level. An ever better shot than Troy Smith, mind you.

Look at the numbers. Every year Pat is getting better moving the ball through the air.
Passing Stats
2005WVU65 114 57.0 828 7.3 8 50 5 132.4
2006WVU118 179 65.9 1655 9.2 13 67 7 159.7
2007WVU107 155 69.0 1251 8.1 11 58 2 157.7

The KEY stat here being the 2 INTs on the year thus far. Pat is adding good decision making to his skillset... the NFL better watch out. The next Michael Vick could be entering the league soon.
