So Matt Hayes from Sporting News is at it again. Just a quick little refresher. If you remember this is the same tool who before Dorrell's 3rd 6 loss season wrote this glowing piece of bullsh!t hyping KD. This is how he hyped Karl Dorrell's 4th year team going into the 06 season:
There are seven fifth-year seniors who were recruited by the previous staff, seven players who have bought into and embraced Dorrell's philosophy. This year's freshmen, some of whom could have chosen that school across town, make up his best recruiting class yet. This team is coming off a 10-win season, something only six other teams in school history have accomplished.
The staff believes quarterback Ben Olson, after two years on a Mormon mission and one year sitting and waiting, finally is ready to live up to his megarecruit hype. Remember mighty-mite tailback Maurice Jones-Drew? Meet tailback Chris Markey, who, if he lost a couple of inches, would be Jones-Drew's twin. The interior lines are stronger and more experienced, and the Bruins haven't been this deep at wide receiver in years.
Who will the quarterback be? The Pat Cowan/Ben Olson debate will be the big one this off-season. That's the only offensive issue with ten starters returning. The defense loses Justin Hickman, but All-America end Bruce Davis comes back along with nine other starters. The team's biggest loss is PK Justin Medlock.
Norvell somehow squeezed an All-Big 12 season out of a physically limited player, quarterback Zac Taylor, amid the constraints of Callahan's eccentric play-calling. If Norvell does the same with UCLA quarterback Ben Olson, a physically gifted athlete with NFL measurables, the loaded Bruins will be competing for a Pac-10 championship -- and possibly more.
Just like we said after reading his first article, we are not going to drink the Dorrell Kool Aid. Only way these puff pieces without any reality based rationale will look credible is if Dorrell brings home a Pac-10 championship.
Until then all these hype/puff pieces make a so called reporter such as Hayes look like nothing but a ginoromous tool (or should we just say a Dorrell worshipping fool?).
