    I think "hyperbolic" is a bit typical.

    Yup, for a former QB he shows great hands, and being a former QB you know he has great awareness on the hits coming in. He might not be opting to run before he catches.

    calling BS

    I received my degree from the college of Health and Human Performance, at the time (96)they called it Exercise and Sport Science now it is an APK degree. Players took parks, recreation and tourism. Tebow has a degree in community organizing or something like that.

    I had DW and Jason Odom in a couple of crossover electives but at the time there were no players getting a degree in APK.

    Okay. Congratulations on your degree but not sure how that's a basis for declaring my comments BS.

    Contextually it should have been apparent but just to clarify, I was talking about the types of college degrees that were typically pursued by NFL skill players vs. those of NFL offensive linemen. I wasn't referring to the majors of Gator players, or even NCAA players in general. Just the ones who are successful in the NFL.

    Haha good one. I played DE in high school. Come to think of it, some of our O-linemen were among the smartest guys in school then, too. Although to be fair...some were not. LOL

    more calliing BS on that you consider an APK degree a simple degree "In other words, how to work out in the gym" it is much more than that. It shows you know nothing about the degree itself.

    Not sure what that's supposed to mean but if you are challenging me to go do research to back up a comment on a football discussion forum, I'll pass. If you disagree then so be it. If it's really that important to you, feel free to show your own "work" and prove me wrong.

    But honestly..."if it's really that important to you"...I'd recommend trying to diversify your lifestyle a little bit.

    Well I did, above. Took about two minutes.

    I just think that's a lazy generalization, and at least by Pro Bowl measures - inaccurate.

    You're right. I don't know a whole lot about the Applied Physiology and Kinesiology degree. In fact I had to Google using the search term "college football player typical degree" just to make sure I was spelling it properly. :wink:

    Perhaps that Pro Bowl was a fluke. I'll acknowledge my comment as inaccurate if you show the same results after breaking down the whole O-linemen wing in the NFL Hall of Fame. :joecool:

    No thanks, I think it's fair to extrapolate.

    Bottom line is the Gators have put plenty of offensive linemen in the NFL.
