Mike's newest post brought back memories of Stefan Lefors (yeah, I voted for the Boise State game over the UK victory, so what?)
I absolutely loved watching Lefors play. He didn't have a great arm, but he played smart and he was pretty damn fast (rememer that run he broke against Cincy?).
However, I believe that if Stefan Lefors played for Steve Kragthorpe, it would look similar to how Will Stein is playing. Granted Lefors was a few inches taller than Stein and may have been faster, but they have similar arm strength and are both shorter than a prototype D-1 quarterback.
I guess what this is getting at is that Steve Kragthorpe is absolutley clueless about to how to maxmize the talent in the program. I would love to see Petrino take advantage of Chicester's size, Doug Beaumont's hands, Darius Ashley's toughness, Burke's arm/accuracy, Vic's shiftiness, Froman's mobility, Trent Guy's speed, Bilal Powell's likeness to Kolby Smith, Zach Stoudt's potential, Scott Long's overall ability and Tronzo's manliness.
I really don't think we are that far behind talent wise on offense. Sadly, most of these players are not being utilized to their full potential. I think the quickest way to turn around the program with the emminent new hire is to bring in someone offensive minded becaust that's where a change of scheme will produce the quickest results. Rebuilding the defense is going to take longer because we need to build depth and improve the speed of our secondary.
But back to the topic of this post, I miss you Stefan...like the deserts miss the rain...
