    Here's Leach's take on the scrimmage:



    Does anyone else crack up at his weekly deadpan plugs for Coke? They get me every time.

    ETA: Of yeah, substance. Most notable things to me: (1) Shader's move sounds permanent. And dude apparently looks solid at WR. (2) Osiris Mitchell, despite being the leading returning WR, has work to do. I've heard Leach discuss several other receivers recently in more positive terms than he did Osiris today. (3) Austin Williams, the practice legend, is apparently running with the starters for real.

    I like the fact that he keeps it real without running down anyone. I also like the fact that he seems to make it a priority to get the best players on the field. I don't feel like Dan or Joe always did that and it hurt us at times and limited our ceiling. Dan treated us like a high school team as far as the depth chart goes where the seniors played over the underclassmen most of the time because they had been here longer. And then Dan's arrogant "Holloway blocks better than Aeris and knows the playbook better" was just outright disrespectful to our fan's intelligence. Joe's "Top five" was possibly even worse. That's a big reason why I don't think we have seen much of what Austin Williams and to more of an extent JaVonta Payton can do. It used to piss me off watching Guidry drop passes and keep being trotted out there while Payton catches everything and hustles 100% all the time at the WR spot. Osirus just sounds like Osirus to me based on what Leach is saying.

    I'm guessing we'll see 8-10 receivers a game catching passes and probably 2-3 running backs used consistently. That's a much better way to use our personnel. And I figure in a couple of years we'll see a better rotation of defensive players once we build depth there. And we're going to see basically two offensive lines a game rather than Hevesy pretending he's in the NFL and only wanting to use eight.

    I'm guessing Williams is the kind of dude Leach can utilize better than our previous coaches. Osiris always looked limited but he has size and was good for a play or two down the field. Maybe he doesn't flow in the offense as well.

    For WRs, he values consistency over occasional great. Get open, catch the ball over an occasional fantastic catch along with dropping catchable balls.

    NEVER forget that Ovirus Mitchell almost single handedly cost us a win of Florida in Slo Joe's first year by dropping an easy touchdown pass. I will never forgive him for that. Yep, for sure, he's got a LOT of work to do.

    It was a bad drop but we ran a whole lot more plays than that one in that game and looked terrible in almost all of them. Even if he scores that only gives us 13 points for the game and we still might have lost. So like I said, bad moment but Osirus was just a symptom of way bigger problems.

    On the flip side, I soured on him last year when we were running the two minute drill against Kansas State late in the ball game and he was walking back to the line of scrimmage and taking his dear sweet time. I guess you can also say that was a symptom of a bigger culture problem, but it still made me mad.

    That being said, I feel almost certain that Leach can get more out of Osirus than Dan and Joe ever did. If not then Leach won’t hesitate to put someone else in, plain and simple.

    I do too. Pretty sure it's an Adidas one, but whether it will be available to the public who knows. Adidas' marketing is really weird. Sometimes it's a limited supply , not all sizes available, etc., and they will issue what and when they want to. It doesn't seem like what would be a good seller at the time, doesn't play any role in what they do.

    I mean he was a true freshman and we should have recruited other receivers so that he wouldn't have been in that spot. And Joe should have been able to put up more points at home than that.

    You can get them at the State golf course. I got mine about 2 weeks ago.

    It's Osirus and not Ovirus. He didn't intentionally drop that ball on purpose and he remembers it too, and would love to have that play back. Not forgiving him seems a little harsh. Football players are human too.
