I think its pretty safe to say that any player on the roster from here on out H&W should be taken with a huge grain of salt. It was unbelievable to see how off the player H&W was from the roster to the pro day and combine numbers. I remember a couple times think there no way a 6-3 Wr shouldn't dominate the acc corners now its easier to understand being that our 6-3 Wr were barely 6-1. I know they do it at other schools but it just so irritating.
Safe to Say This is Safety U Respect it
2 inches isn't squat if your out of position or don't have any ups.

"There's going to be a lot of people who didn't stand with us who are going to be remembered for not standing with us,"
Who are you referring to? It seems like this year all of our player's heights were pretty much right on. Now weight is a different story because that can change weekly depending on the impression the player wants to put on the NFL community. Benjamin measured at 5'10, Byrd 6'3.5, Streeter 6'5, & Aldarius at 6'1. All were listed at that height or plus 1" generally given by all schools for cleats.
aldarius was listed at 6'3 his first two yrs in the program Vernon was listed as 6'4, forston 6'3. I was speaking for all of the roster even though i kind of singled out the Wr.
Futch was listed at 6'3 and measured at 6'0. and Gunn was listed at 6'2 and was also measured at 6'0.
None of our guys were bigger then advertised and most were at least an inch shorter. We have to do better there.
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery; None but ourselves can free our minds.
None if this changes how they played on the field.
This happens in all sports at every level. Check some of the kids we recruit. Most will be listed a couple of inches taller and 10-15 pounds heavier.
I never said it did I will say it kind of why you can have some a imposing figure and not be able to impose your will on anyone being that they really werent that imposing to began with.
Your confusing "will" with measurables. See Sean Spence. And forston could be 6'3 if he sucks in his gut and straightens his shoulders lol ;)
I don't care what anybody says. Futch and Gunn are NOT just 6'0"!! I've seen both up in person and i'm 6'0" even and they both are taller than me.
