    where is Brian Price then???

    Hey guys: are you not seeing Brian Price on the list? I added him shortly after posting the story on the front page, and I can see it on my screen. Just want to make sure there’s not a technical issue.

    Price is there JT.
    Abe Koroma is a beast. If he wasn’t a nutter you would be seeing him today get after LSU, but alas, he needed to beat up on regular PSU students in addition to beating up on MAC players while at PSU.

    Are you the same John Taylor that caught the winning pass for the 49ers against the Bengals back in 1989? I’ll never forget Lewis Billups dropping that easy interception right before that play. Talk about a blown opportunity to win a Super Bowl. Give Joe Montana another chance like that? Haunts me to this day.

    Yeah, Jerry and Joe post here sometimes too.

  9. oraclepz says: Jan 6, 2010 11:19 PM

    Where is Aaron Hernandez??? im pretty sure he declared too.

    Rennie Curran has not declared for the draft.

  11. gmitch23 says: Jan 7, 2010 12:14 PM

    Franks, Oklahoma

  12. SoCalNiner says: Jan 8, 2010 1:43 PM

    Joe McKnight, RB, USC

    Berry or Haden hopefully land with the Vikes!!

    Still can’t belive Jevan Snead is going to come out after the year he had… I know this is a real weak QB class, and I know he has more pro potential than McCoy, Tebow, Pike and a lot of the other QB’s, but after a bad year you need to stay. His only real competittion if he had waited for next year would have been Jake Locker.

    Rolando McClain

  17. ochentacinco says: Jan 12, 2010 8:51 PM

    Kiffin leaving early?
    He’s only a freshman.

  18. SkeeterK says: Jan 15, 2010 2:07 PM

    I don’t see Kevin Basped, Stafon Johnson or Damian Williams on your list. Have they not officially declared?
    Also, I think Blaze Soares would qualify as one of those guys who is forgoing his chance to apply for a redshirt.

  19. John Taylor says: Jan 15, 2010 4:01 PM

    You are correct, Skeeter. They have been added. As has the Norfolk wide receiver.

  20. SkeeterK says: Jan 15, 2010 6:00 PM

    I guess Stafon Johnson counts as one of the guys who could have applied for a medical redshirt since he’s actually a senior – playing in the Senior Bowl and all…

  21. John Taylor says: Jan 15, 2010 6:21 PM

    @ Skeeter: if you really want to continue being an ass, I will really have no problem banning you.

  22. kcrockett1 says: Jan 15, 2010 7:49 PM

    Ouch that has gotta hurt skeeter!!! @John Taylor, who made a mistake, who made a good decision, and who could surprise?

  23. steelwarriors55 says: Jan 15, 2010 7:56 PM

    Blaze Soares still had a year of eligibility to play but decided to go to the NFL draft

  24. SkeeterK says: Jan 15, 2010 9:02 PM

    and I will have no problem being a banned ass, smegmalapper.
