    Was really looking forward to seeing Dee play this year. In fact there are several athletes I’m interested in seeing. This class could be another ’08 with several stars contributing in the same light as Julio, Mark, Cody and D’onta in their true freshman seasons. Hope he can shake it off. By the way I really like your new format – on my computer – but it sucks on a cell phone. Not everybody has an I-phone or Android – or want’s one for that matter. RTR!
