The Cardinal Countdown: 40 Days Until Kickoff

Thoughts: “All" Dae Williams was a nice grab last year out of an area the Cards haven’t hit that hard in the past (Oklahoma). Williams was originally committed to SMU, and also received offers from damn near every team in history that’s ever been affiliated with Conference USA, but fortunately chose the Cards in late January.

Williams racked up over 1,600 yards last year (19 touchdowns) as the primary back for Sapulpa High. In the player recaps on National Signing Day Kolby Smith highlighted William’s ability to hit the holes hard but also showcase his elusiveness. Kolby event went so far as to compare him to [cringes] Michael Bush. I’ll say this, if we can get 70% of what Michael Bush out of "All" Dae I’ll be on Cloud 9…err…I mean 19. See what I did there?

Sweet Tweet:

Happens to me two or three times a month, at least. May be related to being tired but probably just because I’m getting old…and do a lot of the same thing every day…with two kids under 4…..and not much of a social life…

Really painting quite the picture here. #LivingTheDream
