    That quote cracks me up.

    I've been rooting for this kid since day 1. Just something about his speed and unassuming attitude.

    Now, I still want to see The Tibor play. You know, the old pass from 7 (Ginn) to 11 (Gonzo).

    Man I love this quote...instead of pitching a fit or pouting, he asks how and adjusts. My respect for Gonzo just doubled.

    You know Zwick has to be licking his chops at the way Ginn and Gonzo have come on since he got hurt. JZ was already on the same page as Holmes and seemed to be there with Gonzo in the spring game. If he can just get Ginn the ball with room to move 5+ times we are looking at a good night on O. I bet everyone on offense is going to be primed to show that the improvement wasn't just Smith.

    It seems like late in the season Gonzalez was always making the big catch, but I am amazed that he only caught 8 balls last year......​

    Good read, this kid is a weapon. To have him as a 3rd receiver........it just isn't fair to our opponents.

    Same here. I was shocked by that.

    I like his attitude, knowing and accepting his role with the realization that he can come up huge.....

    And then he can explode.....

    Think back to those 8 catches, they were amazing: the 30+ yarder against Purdue. The 80 yard strike against scUM. The ball he scooped up off the grass as he fell backwards against UM. The even better scoop in the Alamo Bowl. I think he had a great grab too against MSU I think where he was just out of bounds (but the catch was outstanding).

    To think that Dukes might have a strong year as well, man. USC might be the first team that has enough good corners to cover all of these guys :)

    It's also great to see Tressel's predictions about that recruiting class come true. Not everyone was thrilled about Youboty, Gonzalez, etc but look how some of these guys have panned out. Tressel sure knows how to find great talent.

    gregorylee I'd rather be napping!!


    This has been proven. I think we all pretty much know that is why Az Hakim had some really productive years in St Louis. Unlike Az, I think that after next season when most likely Holmes is gone that Gonzo will be able to step up to being the second man quite effectively.

    Hahaha to have that speed as a third option... OMG the mismatches on the safties have me drooling.... And if the double the deep guy the OMG Ginn/Holmes on a quick slant...... My goodness this is sick. Oh and to throw this out there Devon Lyons for a jump ball or 2 Dukes in for Holmes or having them both out there.... UNREAL....

    I'd also really like to see a TE getting deep up the seams. Hopefully Hamby, Nicol, and/or Frost can add that threat.

    The most athletic TE in the bunch is Frost, he has the speed to get in the seam deep, if he can only stay healthy.:(

    Thank God for Anthony Gonzalez. He's been vital against scUM the past two years.
