Buzz: The Traverse City Tournament Could Still Happen

The tournament is slated to start on September 14th but the teams involved are trying to move it up.

Last year MSG announced in July that
they were going to televise the tournament.

The roster for Traverse City was released on August 15th last year.

Zach Thompson and Steele DeVitto also signed?

Heh, they just said this was the first draft since 1937 where no Texas Longhorns were drafted.  Ouch.


Well, at least they've got Charlie Strong headed to town, he'll get that fixed quick (Pryor-Bridgewater-Smith-Brown).

For the record, the 1937 draft was the second draft EVER.


So, there have been two drafts EVER with no Longhorns.

@a57se @tsjc68  Was there still racism in Texas back then?  Seeing as how it's over now...

@williamg1  Honestly, Rex, I don't.  All these picks look like your pick.

I do think its interesting that IK Enemkpali played with Karl Dunbar's son at Louisiana Tech. I'm sure Dunbar's very familiar with his abilities/skills.

@williamg1  Unfortunately I don't think that's true.  I believe his son played at Louisiana-Lafayette so whoever reported that was wrong.  However, Dunbar has ties throughout the area so I'm sure he's familiar.

@Bent Cimini first reported it, but did follow it up by saying he was mistaken.

@Brendan @Bent  Okay, well at least he covered his tracks.  But still like I say, Dunbar RUNS La.

@a57se  1.) No, and 2.) Allen, probably, as Landry will keep making the calls at first.  But all three will play a ton regardless.


And if we still sign Reed, who knows?

Brendan
Brendan

@tsjc68 I expect Pryor to start learning those ropes from Landry before eventually taking over for him. 


If Reed is signed, same situation, just better for Pryor. 

tsjc68
tsjc68

@Brendan @tsjc68  Yup.


The long-term plan is probably Pryor and Allen, but while Pryor's learning it's safer to play him in Allen's spot and keep Landry out there captaining things.

@a57se  Would you be surprised if he replaces Landry? I wouldn't. 

tsjc68

@a57se @tsjc68  That's true.  Allen rarely really looks lost anymore.


Really, nothing would surprise me at this point.

The thought of being coached-up by Rex and Dunbar has to be enticing for any UDFA defensive lineman.

Really so glad it was addressed, and lookin' forward to the new O line competition, cause I'm not taking anything for granted...


still bummin' about Austin Howard...we coulda done 6.5 for that dude...

@a57se Well we saved 2M by signing Breno, but I'm loyal to a fault 57...lets keep a sharp eye on both of em' this year.

Brendan

@kniff I don't think you have to worry about that. The Hindsight Brigade will not miss a chance to bring up a misfire like that.

@a57se keep in mind..oakland may move him to guard..paying tackle money for a guard

Brendan

@tsjc68 Amen. 


I will dig into my MS Paint photoshop skills later for some lulz.

@fuldsadick I thought they already stated they are definitely doing that? Either way, this just shows how dumb the Raiders are.

Jets sign DT Kerry Hyder . any info on this guy?

@Mike  Like him.  Good 3-4 DE depth behind Douzable.  On my list.

@tsjc68 @Mikenice. i just dont get why the jets are signing so much DT when we already have one of the best DL in the NFL.

@Mike @tsjc68


Because cheap depth on the practice squad who know your system is always good

@Mike Things change, never sit back and admire your roster, always look to make it better.

@Brendan @Mike yeah and so far the jets are doing what they need to know and thats draft our weak spots which were WR and so on. Lets see who else jets will sign.

And always have a potential backup in hand in case you have contract/cap or injury issues.

@a57se @Mike @tsjc68  Not to mention, Wilkerson never seems to leave the field. He could use some snaps off. 


Hopefully that would give him a little extra energy so Klecko will stop giving him crap. 

tsjc68
tsjc68

@a57se @Mike @tsjc68  Yup.  And most of those guys are on short-term deals soon to expire.


Gotta get fresh blood into each pipeline.  Next man up.
