Surrency's Appeal

Let's just say for a moment that Corey Surrency wins his appeal and gains another year of eligibility.

I had to think for a minute if I even wanted Surrency back on the field. He was given a jump ball on many occasions and, a lot of the times, didn't seem to come up with it. Then I thought, OF COURSE, I want him to return.

Thanks to reading Tomahawk Nation (almost religiously), I realize the importance of game planning. With both Greg Carr (graduated) and Corey Surrency (appealing) teams were forced to game plan around the long, jump ball. This opened up tremendous opportunity for the Noles to run the plays we wanted while the other team was making sure we didn't lob one up.

Corey Surrency wasn't as efficient as Greg Carr. He dropped a lot of the balls he was thrown. At the same time, though, he DID make some clutch plays. Throwing a jump ball  is taking a chance...its hoping that the taller player will catch it. Surrency didn't always do it, but a lot of the time he did.

Plus, the dude could block very well. Say what you want about his catching, I'll take his blocking and the opposing team's fear of us throwing to him, so we can run all over the field.

Given the three plus sides, the down side of "well Corey can't catch all too well" seems a little stupid. Especially with our current receiver situation.

I'm not saying its going to happen, but I would be more than thrilled if Surrency won his appeal.
