Looks like Otha is getting some PT for Arkansas today. Just can't get over losing that guy.
It is kind of like having a girlfriend leave you for a guy with a really nice car (or motorcycle, for that matter) and then seeing her with him a few years later. She still looks great but the dude's car (or motorcycle) has long since been repossessed and he is fat, toothless, and sporting a mullet. You just scratch your head and think, "she left me for THAT!?"
At least they are getting a piece of Auburn...
On the flip side of Otha, I'm sure Gabe Wright is enjoying Auburn's wildly successful season so far.
Hmmmmm.... great point.
Haha. No doubt.
speaking of backstabbers..how's Santos doing?
plays special teams
I honestly think Bynum will end up having a better career than Santos.
Santos is doing well, at least according to ESPN's Vince Verhei and Ryan McGee. Vince ranks santos as the fifth best "unsung impact players" who could make a major impact in their teams' key upcoming games. (see below)
5. Dalton Santos, LB, Texas Longhorns
Forget the freshman's defensive numbers. That's not where he takes care of business. Opposing teams need to keep an eye on No. 55 when the surprisingly fast, 6-foot-3, 260-pounder is on the prowl on special teams, as part of Texas' famed "Wild Bunch" kickoff coverage squad. His pace is so frenetic and his hits so vicious that his teammates call him "Crazy White Boy."
So far, the Wild Bunch has allowed fewer than 19.2 yards per kickoff return, and that includes a 100-yard TD return by Ole Miss in Week 3. Throw out that return and Texas opponents are, on average, starting their drives around the 17-yard line.
How big is that? Take a look at their Big 12 schedule. Kansas State's Tyler Lockett is ranked No. 2 in the nation in kickoff returns. Also among college football's biggest threats are Oklahoma State's Justin Gilbert (12th) and this weekend's return man, Tavon Austin of West Virginia (24th). What's the best way to slow down a video game-type Big 12 offense, besides keeping them off the field? Creating as deep of a hole as possible, physically and mentally, to start their drives.
"He is a tone-setter," said his head coach, Mack Brown. "A big play on a kickoff can change the momentum of a football game like no other play. You should see the team watching film on Sundays. They want to fast forward to the kickoffs just to watch Santos."

No doubt that we could use Santos and Peters. I think Santos would have been the perfect Jack LB for us in this scheme.
