    Bazza, can you use your magic powers to make Shorter eligible? I think he'll be important.

    I've started collecting geckos and ducks as pets. Dennis Haysbert is tied up in my closet.

    I know we got some seriously real talent and speed on the DL this year, but of all that, im also intrigued in Diabate too. I think that kid is going to be the outright speed rusher.

    I think Diabate could fill in nicely on that Vosean Joseph role

    The NCAA should be condemned to the dust bin of history. Its inconsistency in its decision making is deplorable and seems to favor certain teams. The NCAA needs to be disbanded asap.

    Why hasn't the NCAA decided already? They drag our guys forever.

    I'm wondering if Franklin is being an a-hole about it and not helping. He seems the type. Same thing with Herman in regards to Pouncey.

    With the Big 10 not playing I think Shorter eventually gets cleared.

    The suspicious thing is that your last sentence should instead be able to say, "With the Big 10 not playing, Shorter must immediately be cleared." Sad what they're doing to Shorter.

    He can and will fill more roles than Joseph did. Seems to have better lateral quickness and better suited to play outside.

    With respects to Shorter, and this is completely selfish, I am hoping he plays this year, but will probably have a greater impact next year.

    With Grimes, Toney and Pitts, we've got guys for Trask to throw to. Next year, we'll be needing someone to step up badly.

    If we had a hungry veteran like Shorter to shepherd in the younger guys, we'd be in good shape. If he had a great year this year, he might be tempted to enter the draft.

    I believe this is his third year

    Also, and I'm not sure how reliable this is, the folks at Penn State were saying he was 30 lbs over his playing weight. Not sure he's worked that all off during this crazy off season

    The season starts in 19 days. Doubt Shorter will be cleared at this point. What are they doing to him?
