Dorsett as a freshman at Pitt weighed 155 lbs; of course, he was as fast as greased lightening.

More recently, Jim Leonard, now defensive coordinator at Wisconsin, was a 2 time All-American safety at Wisconsin and played safety in the NFL for 10 years (ending in 2014) at 5'8" and 180 lbs. He was another great athlete: he could dunk a basketball 2 handed.

When you're 5'8", two-handed is your only option....

I like KJ Hall, and having a shifty runner should be a part of every team. It reminds me a bit of JD Falslev. These are players who have a long shot at the NFL, but in college occasionally break through with a big play. You don't have to be a bruising Brayden El Bakri, Fui Vakapuna type, because the shifty speedy runner can have plays that work to those strengths too.

I think that the offense will get better. Not having a bowl game means less practices, which sucks but in the future we will have a better package on the offense. Hall is a key part and will have a place for success. I think the speed display from the 75 yard run on SJSU will happen again in 2018.

I now better understand why BYU didn't recruit Britton Covey...

I think there was a kid, I think out of Kansas or K State, that ended up playing for New Orleans. He was 5' 5" and under 200 lbs.

Darren Sproles. He is 5'6", 190# and still playing -- 13th year in the league.

I like KJ hall. I didn't want to turn this into a size of player in the NFL discussion. I was hoping someone knew what had happened to him. While he was playing he was very explosive and I loved the pass out of the backfield catches that he was making and turning into 25 yard gains. We had one of those to El Bakri(sp?) that went for a couple of yards in the Fresno game, all I could think of when I saw it was that Hall would have taken it for 25 yards with his shiftiness. Hopefully he gets back sooner rather than later and is able to play for the rest of the year.

Kalani won't say a peep about non-season-ending injuries. My guess is he doesn't want people questioning the S&C program they're running anymore than they already are.
