Keep on Running

Just keep goin' baby...



Just keep runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin', and runnin' til you're WAY out of town.

Honestly, Cougar Nation, I have never looked more forward to an NFL draft in me entire life.

I mean, I am simply BEYOND flabbergasted that the Big Apple is anywhere near someone's draft board. It simply is beyond me. WWWWWWWAAAAAYYYYY beyond me.

I thought long and hard about a wager that I could make with the Cougar faithful about Alex getting drafted, but couldn't come up with anything.

That said, I am more than open to a friendly wager about his prospects of being on an opening day roster. So, if you have any good ideas, go ahead and post-away. I'm ready and willing to put up a weekend of manlove with Stl_Glenn for anyone who beats me.

So, here's my prediction for any of you "takers" out there: NONE. There is NO CHANCE King Klipboard has of making a roster. NONE.

In terms of our other brethren, I give Bumpus the All-Arena endorsement. Enjoy your career in Albany, Bump. After that, I think that Bump may have a broadcasting career. He's a good looking kid and despite his academic struggles, he seems to be a real articulate kid. Get your masters, Bump!

Meanwhile, Byrd has a good chance at being all world at eating Brats at tailgate parties, but not much more. I think the move to guard hurt him a lot last year.

But, I really like the chance of Abdullah and Jedzilla making a team. I like A's prospect as a nickel guy as well as a special teams player. And I think that Jedzilla has special teams and/or practice team written all over him. He may not be fast enough for combine drills, but his game speed is solid and his hands and blocking make him a legit threat to make a roster. I really like that kid and actually like him to land in Miami as a Free Agent (did someone say that Brinkhater has sources? Hmmmmmm)

The big question, of course, is what players the "big purple" may land in the pros. Pretty amazing, but they are looking at the real chance of having a goose egg year in the draft.

Imagine that: The Huskies with NO ONE in the pros? Man, has big brother gotten fat or what?

Also: stay tuned in the upcoming weeks for a weekly segment to be called the "Brinkhater Diaries." I am modeling it after Larry King's columns in USA today. Just a bunch of rambling without the burden of having to complete any sentences (I call it Ditka-eeze).....

Like Hooty promised earlier last fall, I plan on drinking somewhat heavily before each post...we'll see if you all can tell any difference between that work and the other schumlch I've dealt over the last four years...

Until then...

RUN FORREST RUN!

The way you talk about Brink makes one think he must have dated a family member, perhaps?

Why is the big question who the mutts are going to have drafted?

That should be a side question, if discussed at all......

I am back BH.

The Mutts question is simply an eye-opener of how far they have fallen in the talent department. Who would have thought we would see them on the bubble for having a player drafted? Back with Lambright was in charge they had like 10 guys drafted in his last year.

UW Football Blog EAST!

How pathetic. I come here to get some information, analysis and criticism on the Coug draft prospects, maybe even some actual details that showed you have a clue? And this is what I get? I could recruit some yahoo from Cougfan's boards to write something much better than this in half the time it took you. Just more hate on AB? This is your best shot? What happened to the great work from the spring game? For SHAME GUYS. (If you had emotion icons enabled I would put the little yellow guy shaking his head here.)

Hooty McBoob said...

Point taken, Vince.

Hawk - can you work on getting emoticons added to the site so people can appropriately illustrate their displeasure?

I have to say, leave the kid alone. Alex was the Husky killer and don't underestimate his football intelligence. He will make a team for that alone. It's time to let it go...Brink is a Coug, no need to hate anymore.

Give it up to the last Anony who at least had a real take: He thinks that the Big Apple's football IQ is sufficient to play in the NFL. Coudn't disagree more (I like his football IQ a lot, just not the skills), but at least its a take.

And to the rest of the Big Apple apologists. How about not feeling sorry for the Big Apple anymore? Don't any of you see Rogers highlights and get excited about not seeing the same #10 dying quail fluttering about?

And that means you too Vince...Get over it. He came, he threw for yards, he never made it to a bowl game, and he never beat anyone who was any good. That's not hating, its just fact.

And if he couldn't thread an out pattern in college, what the heck is he going to do against teams whose LBs are as fast as college corners?

So, give us your TAKES. If you think that the others will make the grade, then give your reasons why.

If you think I'm full of beans and have a take as to why the Big Apple will make the big time, by all means fire away.

Again: I think Jedzilla and Abdullah have a shot, the others don't. Just my view...

My take has always been this site is like Cougar Football...Our program would have been way better off without Alex Brink the last 4 years. This site would be WAY better off without Brinkhater. Sedihawk, Hooty, Rooster...Keep up the good work guys. You consistantly provide insight and analysis on our beloved Cougs that is seriously lacking for those of us who dont subscribe to Cougfan.

Brinkhater's ramblings are consistantly juvienile and unwanted when surrounded by what can continue to be grown as a great forum for Cougar Football discussion.
