Starling ahead of Martinez?

08:15 AM ET 05.13 | Nebraska football may just have the clubhouse lead as it relates to Bubba Starling's decision. Coach Bo Pelini appears to have managed the transition between old offensive coordinator Shawn Watson and new one Tim Beck as smoothly as possible. Beck's simplified attack probably fits Starling's talents just as much as Watson's hybrid West Coast/spread offense. And probably better. On sheer athleticism, you could see Bubba posing a sincere challenge to Taylor Martinez, Cody Green and Brion Carnes for the starting job. Although he's thin -- the kid could carry an extra 20 pounds of muscle on his 6-foot-5 frame, easy -- he's taller than any of them, and just as fast. Including Martinez? Including Martinez.

I'd be shocked if this kid ever plays college football. The money he will be offered after being one of the top picks in the MLB Draft, will be tough to turn down........

Morning Woody's Boy and Deep Creek. If the guy is that skinny a few hits are all he could handle before getting something broke, he needs to add some weight and muscle.

A fine mornin' to you good Colonel.

Wow Woody, what a great looking Ava, sure one lucky bike seat.

Yeah! I hope it does'nt cost me another suspension. Got to be extra careful.

Anyone know if they are going to keep any variation of the bone? Would be an interesting O attack coming into a league that rarely sees that type of attack.

you cannot be getting suspended becuz of ur avi's. Hell look at FAMU and Blaqk, those guys have pushed the envelope to hard core. It must be the content of your postings on some thread other than college football. Are you and Sandy Underpants discussing politics somewhere?
