That statement that was made that Nick did much more with freshman starters in footbal than Brady has in basketball has zero credibility. The poster used the play of Vincent and Broussard as his evidence. Pretending that one freshmen on the football team has any significance to this years basketball team is delusional. We start Bass and Koundjia both freshmen. That is 40 % of the team. Two of the subs are Freshmen. Now imagine starting nine freshmen, of the twenty two starters, on the football team. What do you think our record whould have been? Heck we had a Sophomore starting at Quarterback, Randall and a first year starter at SS, Hunt in 2002 and what happened? In reference to effects of injuries on teams, do you remember the effect on the Tiger defense in 2002 when Spears was injured. We were in the top four of five in defense when Spears was injured in the SC game. He missed the Auburn Game and was very much handicapped in the Alabama game. We coulsn't stop anybody. Is there a similarity to the Alabam and Auburn football games in 2002, after Spears was injured and James quit the team, and the Auburn,Vanderbilt, and Mississippi State basketball games in 2004, after Lloreda was injured?
