I am not sure why Smalls allowed himself to be talked into running the forty if he was not feeling well. That 4.78 will haunt him until he runs at least a couple low 4.5's for the scouts.

How Ben Coblyn gets a shot at pro day is unbeleivable-If any of the Pro Scouts came to watch him get abused during Richmond/Maine and other games would think twice

Hard times could be coming to college football

Money is what rules college sports and we get the short end of the $-Money stick.

The NCAA controls the $-Money. The Bowl Games and the Basketball Playoffs are designed to funnel revenue to the major conferences.

I think it is time to investigate leaving the NCAA.

Coblyn deserved a shot. For his position, size does matter and it helps.

And what is wrong with living in Amherst? Ben's a great guy with a big heart who will be just fine with whatever fate comes his way. What is wrong with you? Can't you wish them all the best? There are thousands of NCAA athletes out there, and how many pro spots? If you are given the opportunity to audition and nothing comes of it, at least you can say "I was given the chance and I tried." Life goes on.

I and most of us left Amherst to pursue careers after getting our degree. The quality of life in Amherst is certainly superior to most of the other cities I have worked and lived in around the country and around the world.

We can't go back, however I wish whoever has the opportunity to continue to live and work in Amherst the best of luck. You have made a good choice.
