Congrats to Sam on Winning Heisman!

16 posts in this topic

I'm keeping my fingers crossed until April!

Not sure if he'll come out though.

I personally think Tebow should have won the award again this year, he has taken the Gators on his back since their loss and is an amazing leader. But he didn't have the huge numbers that Bradford did. Bradford is also very deserving of this award and congratulations are in order!

Which of the 3 finalists or other QB's will make the best transition to the NFL when their time comes?

I think smith will make the best transition into the nfl. The man has a awesome touch when it comes to throwing the football, and he is smart as they get. I look for him to come out of the draft, and play for the lions next year.

Can you imagine him and Calvin Johnson together!

I think Bradford will make a good transition to the NFL, after his senior year. But I think Graham Herrell will also be a good pro QB. There are some good ones out there this year.

Has anyone heard if McCoy has decided to go pro yet? He would be another good get for somebody.

McCoy is going to stay for his senior year.....wants to win a championship.

That's smart. He'll have a better shot in the draft if he stays, too. Lots of good QBs in the draft this year.

You better look again! Very few good quarterbacks coming out this year.

Stafford is the only legit first rounder and that's if he declares for the draft. Otherwise there won't be a quarterback picked until late in the second round.

The only thing that will save this (quarterback)draft class is if a bunch of juniors and redshirt sophs declare.

None of the senior quarterbacks are first rounders and maybe not even second rounders.

I dont know if Stafford is the only first rounder. I think Colt will be a first rounder. Tim T is second round material!

I agree on Tebow not becoming much of an NFL Qb, although the leadership skills and poise he has shown this year are impressive to say the least, there isn't anyone else I would rather have on the feild in crunch time. I just don't think he can stand in the pocket and throw the ball all game long though, he needs to be out moving with the ball and making things happen on his own. Physically I think he is ahead of his competition but in the NFL he won't be and will lose his edge. He might make a good back up though?

I'm pretty sure Colt said he was returning to Texas. He is definately a first rounder though. This year or next.

Not many big name senior quarterbacks this year.

2010 draft will have an amazing crop of quarterbacks.

    • Stainless steel should work fine.
    • We live in some sort of Bizarro world now - Sarah Palin calling Trump sinfully stupid.     Here's another one from Ann Coulter, who literally wrote a book "In Trump We Trust"    
    • You do realize that if the taxes were done that way, the cities would get $2.53 billion richer, and rural areas would get $2.53 billion poorer. The 7 county metro pays substantially more taxes (nearly 2/3 of the states total) than the other 80 counties in Minnesota combined, but only receives roughly half of the state expenditures.   Sorry to break it to you, but rural America is not fiscally solvent. Those citiots you speak of are bankrolling the entire country. It's easy to see on this chart: more urban states are to the left (givers) and more rural states are to the right (takers).  
    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
