    Russell gets another chance

    http://www.twincities.com/mld/twincities/news/columnists/16593147.htm

    Gary Russell is going to the combine and has an agent. This guy flunked out of Minnesota but he was one of the best runners I've watched on their team. Sounds like he's grown up a whole lot. The guys legs are the most powerful I've ever seen. I would love to see the Vikes draft him. The article says he's expected to go in the second round.

    Re: Russell gets another chance

    its not as much of a point of him growing up..the guy is just academically stupid..i do agree tho, hes wasnt as good as maroney, but he will be a pretty damn good pro
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    He reminds me of Earl Campbell and for those that have never seen Earl he was a power house running back and punished defenders more than they punished him.


    I would love to see the Viking's get Russell in the 3rd or 4th round he is going to be a steal in this draft.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    I don't understand your post comparing him to Clarett at all!

    He's trying to say an academic flop would most likely be a slacker or a f*** up, which MC was both, thus the comparison

    Pretty much someone who does not have the discipline while playing College ball is usually a sighn of how they do in the nfl.

    Clarett, Onterrio, Chris Henry are just three names that come to mind quick as problem chilren in College that has had the same effect in the pro's.

    Getting bad grades doesn't make you a problem child.

    No, but getting bad grades, and then flunking out is definitely pointing you in the wrong direction.
