VanGorder is better than Mays. Simple as that.

I honestly feel the other way around & I do not think there was anyone on the team that expected VanGorder to start after spring. Mays has been far more consistent & has starting experience; but he has yet to show any "flash", as VG has done. However, flash will not give VG the starting nod, an injured Mays will.


Well Mays has nerve damage so he's not playing.

Jakkar Jackson, a DB transfer from Central Michigan has joined the team. 2 star recruit out of high school with a bunch of MAC offers. Has 3 years of eligibility left.

Assuming his high school ranking is substance and not just hype, he should be a welcome addition.  I wonder if he has experience at safety?  He should be able to contribute by the Western Illinois game.

As an aside comment, I have a friend that HATES the "make up" names parents give kids these days. But it does make checking player on highlight websites like HUDL much easier.  You do check Bob Jones you fine 45 different ones but only 1 Jakkar Jackson!

He has played safety before. I expect him to play regularly.

Let's hope Bo can grab Gebbia from the Cornhuskers, Nebraska admin gave him his release yesterday. As long as we are still keeping our basic "O", he will be a great fit. He red-shirted, so he has 4-years left.
