Morning Links – 5/2/2011


I spent the weekend without internet access, so I wasn’t able to update the site (or even watch the spring game). It’s definitely not the morning, but here’s our round-up of what we missed.

“Multiple” offense beats “Multiple” defense as the Red team (which was composed mostly of the first-team offense) destroyed the White team (composed mostly of the first-team defense) 35-7. You can start your #DOB4ACCPOY campaign, everyone, because Danny O’Brien was on point. Although DOB threw two interceptions, he was 16-23 for 199 yards and two touchdowns and seemed comfortable in the new offense. The rest of the quarterbacks? Not so much. C.J. Brown was 9-26 for 96 yards with an interception, Tyler Smith was 2-5 for 28 yards and a pick, and Troy Jones was 0-1. Other highlights:

  • Davin Meggett and D.J. Adams both had good games on the ground, and Jeremiah Wilson looks like the favorite for the third running back slot.
  • Ronnie Tyler had three receptions for 99 yards and two touchdowns, Kevin Dorsey and Quintin McRee each caught a game-high four passes, and freshman Nigel King caught three passes.
  • Neither Michael Tart nor Nick Ferrara averaged over 40 yards per punt. Nate Renfro, you couldn’t come soon enough.
  • Kenny Tate and Cameron Chism each had 11 tackles, while Matt Robinson, Ryan Donohue and Lamonte Gaddis each had seven. Joe Vellano and Clarence Murphy each had two sacks, and Anthony Green had two interceptions.

Torrey Smith was drafted by the Ravens in the second round. It’ll be good to see him continue his career around these parts. Da’Rel Scott was also picked, by the Giants.

Wally Judge is down to Rutgers, Maryland, and Washington, but it looks like it’s just Rutgers and Maryland.

Robert Goff, a 6’9″ power forward and the #3 JuCo prospect in the country, was released from his LOI to Oklahoma and Maryland is apparently pursuing him.
