They are SO stupid! The Hurricane Club could not raise $36,000 in two months what makes THEM think they can? LOL

UMike

I would assume Davenport would have the money..especially since they stand to make money off the project lol

86Cane

UMike...There are PLENTY of current or former NFL players who could invest in the project as a partner IF they thought it was going to make a profit. How come NONE of them has?

UMike

Good question 86..honestly the idea is great and it should be something that makes money..but the issue is they put out low quality stuff and then asked for funds...they might of been better off pitching the item to former players, getting the money and then making a quality video from start to finish..Im sure between Davenport, Moss, Vilma and all the other people already on the trailer, they could of come up with the money lol

U 2, 86

Between the 30 for 30 documentary, and the Raising Canes episodes, is there even a major market for U Reloaded...

Me personally, I think it'll do better on Netflix, than a direct to DVD type deal.

Cincinnati Bengals will be on Hard Knocks' HBO show this year.

I was kinda hoping for a new team, but whatever. It's a fun watch.

FROM ESPN:

Introducing a new evaluation format:

Whether it be the collegiate or professional level of football, there have always been varying writing styles for player personnel reports depending on organizational preference. Over the past seven classes we have written our player evaluations in the "overall assessment" format, where through the course of 275-350 words we have encompassed an introduction, various strengths and weaknesses and a brief conclusion into one report. For many programs at the college level, we see this same format in a shortened, condensed version with as many as three or four coaches on the staff contributing to the evaluation.

Moving forward, we have decided to incorporate a more strategic player evaluation based on a set of critical factors and traits specific to a certain position in a "template" format. This method also will allow us to mirror our college-to-NFL player evaluations done by Todd McShay and his staff so that when it comes time for a player to be draft eligible, you will be able to access how we evaluated a particular player coming out of high school and how he is being evaluated coming out of college with similar or identical critical factors by position.

The phrases "critical factors" or "position specific traits" are what we use as a template for what we are looking for in a player at a particular position. For example, you will see "separation skills" for the wide receiver position. We feel this is a critical factor to the success of the position. It can include strengths or weaknesses in such areas as route running, change of direction, speed and flexibility, among other traits. Each position will have a set of critical factors that we will address in a template format that is divided into its own individual sections. We feel this will provide more clarity and also align better with our NFL draft reports.

Generally there can be as many as 8-10 critical factors per position, but we have tapered this down to five we feel are most important. We as evaluators have the freedom to include more detail about other traits that we feel best serve the evaluation of that player and will add that to one of the five areas we feel it best fits.

We will be back in July with another round of updates once the camp season officially comes to close as we head into the fall. Hope you enjoy and let the debate begin!

I know everyone inside the infraction committee hearings had to sign a paper saying they will not discuss anything outside of this room......makes you wonder!!!

Maybe Laranaga promised the kid everything is going to be alright!!

I will in one sense give FSU some respect...last year was the first time since their run in the late 90s that their offense AND defense had such a high PF and low PA.
