    I was hoping Austin English would get in. I'll be attending again to go see James.

    You better hope he wins it. It could be the last award he receives before his NFL career goes the way Bobby Carpenters has.... :P

    it's amazing how much he has suffered this year because of our D Line. Not many people realized the DE across from Gholston stunk so bad. With Gholston gone, our D Line is Texans worthy, and James has not been able to be a fraction of the player he was last year. I still think he's the second best LB in the draft.

    Orakpo back in the starting lineup for the Horns today.

    EDIT* - Technically not starting. He will only be playing in passing situations today.
