Dismissed players??


LU Cardinal

Recommended Posts

We've all seen Coach Woodard take chances on big school kids that have been dismissed or transferred from bigger schools in the past, do any of you think or would you want him to give one of these kids a chance at Lamar if it fills a position of need? i know Id love to see him contact Joe Bergeron from UT if he's indeed dismissed from the Longhorns. He'd be a huge bruising RB for the Cards and dominate the SLC. What do you guys think?

I heard Joe Bergeron may be transfering to Texas State.

 

He's a senior, Texas State is FBS so he'd have to sit out a year to play there. Rumors on UT forums is West Texas A&M. Ray should use any UT pull he has and see if he has interest. I agree it would depend on why he was let go, and #2 I also agree with the OP he'd be a force in the SLC.

Ill say that I've heard from a reliable source that LU will gauge the interest of the former RB from UT mentioned by the OP above Joe Bergeron. With Woodards past link to UT maybe he can find out the issues the kid had and see if he's worth giving another shot if Bergeron had interest in coming here.

From what I've read Collins is a little bit of a headcase...UT people have said he was like that even when he was at Livingston...that being said this might be a wake up call to him...I saw him play against Nederland in 2012 and honestly wasn't overly impressed...of course he was at QB because he was a good athlete on a team that ran slot-t kind of offense and their OL was outclassed by a DL that put 3 guys at the FBS/FCS level

 

Bergeron would probably be a good compliment to the shift Harrington...losing Ploch to graduation while not adding a player with that skill set is a blow to our offense

 

Overstreet is a guy who would still have 3 years if he came and has some good athletic ability (listed as both a QB and RB in his time in Austin) to go along with good size for a RB

 

In the end I just hope Woodard and Co. do their due diligence and make sure these guys fit into the program and will stay out of trouble...last thing I want is another Anthony Oden or Hershel Sims to piss away an opportunity like this

I think you will see one of two players filter in but i relying on that as a way to compete for higher than 6th is wishful thinking. By the way i love the new website guys, love the conversation this board has. Good knowledgeable people.

thanks guys

Hey guy, I would have loved to see Bergeron in a Lamar uniform He's the type of player to get butts in the seats, Chief. Hey gang, we need a special player like that. Who's the most gifted athlete on the roster?

 

Gotta be Johnson, Roberts, or Begelton, huh? I originally thought to include Berry, but quarterbacks don't typically exude athleticism to me as much as a WR or safety. That's not to take away from Berry at all...I just think most quarterbacks would be hard-pressed to be as athletic as his receivers and secondary. With that said, I am glad we have a QB who has proven himself to be the guy for the job. Berry has definitely earned it, and he should be proud of what he's accomplished in staying for four years to get what's his. It's nice to not have a bona fide QB battle this year. While the backups are vying for the 2-spot, I'm proud we have a guy like Berry to move forward with the season.

Pound for pound, my vote is for Roberts.
