Colt in '08 / Miami / LP / Nate / WAC

The Sporting News looks ahead to the draft class in 2008. They have Colt Brennan in their Top 10.
Colt Brennan, QB, Hawaii. Brennan almost entered the '07 draft and likely would have been the second quarterback drafted. Despite his physical skills and production, skeptics wonder whether Brennan can play in a traditional NFL offense. We won't know the answer to that issue until the Senior Bowl.
Well, that last sentence bothers me, but we must not tarry as there's so much other news to link to...


The Miami press loves the Samoan rookies from Hawaii (and Utah). Here's another article about that subject, this one from Carl Kotala of Florida Today via the Advertiser. Lots of good quotes.
"We represent the whole Samoan culture," Satele said. "Now, we've got to represent the whole state of Hawaii. I'm proud to be from Hawaii. I'll represent it as (best) as I can."

The four rookies are certainly a colorful lot.

Satele, a 6-foot-3, 300-pound center/guard has not gotten a haircut since he enrolled at the University of Hawaii in 2002. There have been times when opponents have tried to use his long locks to their advantage. But given the big man's size and natural strength, that might not be such a good idea.

"I got pulled on a couple of times last year and I got (ticked) off," Satele said. "They call me Samson, but I'm like the Hulk. They pull my hair, I get angry."

Here's an AP article on LP. It uses a lot of the Leonard Peters quotes that have been printed from other sources the past couple days. Nonetheless, another great profile.

And here's another one, this one by Tom Rock of Newsday.com. Same deal with the quotes you've probably already read. Right on Leonard.


The Eagles backfield is kinda crowded and up in the air right now. Let's hope Nasti Nate will find his niche and be there when the season starts.

Here's something positive from the Eagles website.
The general consensus among the coaching staff was that the rookies got off to a collective good start. Tight end Brent Cesak stood out after reviewing the film, and quarterback Kevin Kolb was tremendous. Running backs Tony Hunt and Nate Ilaoa digested and processed the information and went and made some mistakes and also did a lot of good things.

CFN has 2007 previews of Utah State, Idaho and San Jose State. SJSU is definitely gonna be a team to watch out for this year. CFN should have previews of Hawaii and the rest of the WAC soon, though there's no rhyme or reason as to the order they're releasing them. I'll link to the UH preview whenever it's published.
