"Rather than focusing on what is not yet polished, let's be excited for how strong and new the oak table is. A good coach, like a good craftsman, can sand it out and put varnish on it. You can't coach size. There is only so much you can do to improve someone's speed, strength, and jumping ability.
"There was an article in Sports Illustrated a couple years ago explaining the formula for LSU football's success. They recruit by athletic ability rather than position. They would prefer the better athletes (explaining that many of their players are high school quarterbacks) and feel they can coach them to play a different position. Most of Percy Harvin's receptions came near or even behind the line of scrimmage last year. Let's give Joe Webb the same opportunity for now and teach him how to run downfield."
