    What were the odds of us getting 2 football transfers from Vanderbilt?

    Great job. This story has a 1980's feel to it. Sports Journalist don't write like this anymore. Nowadays they just take a headline pin it and quote the source and call it coverage.

    According to a source at ESPN. Blah blah Blah. That's why sports boards have become popular. We get more from talking to each other than from a site like the Washington Post.

    Some clips of him: https://twitter.com/LateBrakers/status/1258171833964277761?s=20

    Obviously tough to say because I don't know anything about the level of competition he's going against. I think it's safe to set low expectations and hopefully be surprised. Easy guy to root for though. Great personality.

    That’s some very tall grass he’s playing in.

    Great story on Oram-Jones. I hope he gets a fair shot at showing what he can do. Walk-on players in general are easy to root for. I still remember Jesse Holguin (who was probably like 6th string tailback on the depth chart) scoring a TD against Kal in 1994.

    As long as hits the holes and doesn't dance at the LOS , I say give him a shot. His pass blocking will have a lot to do with if he ever sees the field in a real game.

    Now he'll have more time to learn those things.
