Quick Hits From Meeting Doug Marrone

Last night was the beginning of the Doug Marrone barnstorming tour.  2+ hours of drinking at Fenway Park and listing to the coach speak is a good use of $20 in my opinion.

Anyway, it was a very good event and if you get the chance to go meet him in your town, I suggest you do it.  You'll come away extremely excited about the direction of the program and the hiring of this coach.  He is extremely approachable and willing to talk about anything to do with the program or football in general.

I'll try to send Sean more info later on about the event, but in the mean time I wanted to share two items that will have an effect on the upcoming season.  When asked about Greg Paulus the coach responded with "The NCAA says you can only discuss potential players by name in two ways.  Either you are recruiting them or your aren't recruiting them.  We are recruiting Greg Paulus."  Not a big surprise given some of the news leaks recently, but it was well received.  He did give everyone there one big scoop.

When he was talking about the state of the defense he referenced that they recently lost someone they converted to Corner this off season but that he felt OK about it because they should be signing someone this week or next from California who will come in and push for a starting job in 2009.  Armed with this information, I went to rivals.com and looked at the 100 CBs for 2009.

There are two players on this list from Cali who aren't signed,

Number 30 Bernard Bolden
Number 62 Marquise Cox

My bet/hope is number 30 Bolden because number 58 on the list is Dale Peterman who is already signed for next year.  And if this new guy is going to "push" for a starting gig I would think he is higher than Peterman.
